Hyundai Motor America is recalling 99,500 model year 2009-2011 Hyundai Accents manufactured March 1, 2009, to February 11, 2011.
The brake light switch may malfunction causing the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause an inability to deactivate the cruise control by depressing the brake pedal. It may also prevent the shifter from being moved out of the PARK position.
Failure to illuminate the brake lights during braking or the inability to disengage the cruise control could increase the risk of a crash.
Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the brake switch, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 2, 2015. Owners may contact Hyundai's customer service at 1-855-671-3059 or by visiting www.HyundaiUSA.com/Campaign131. Hyundai's number for this recall is 131.
