Kia Motors America is recalling 86,921 model year 2020 Tellurides with Smart Cruise Control (SCC).
When a trailer is connected to the vehicle, the trailer brake lights will not illuminate when the SCC applies the brakes.
Inoperative trailer brake lights can fail to warn other drivers that the vehicle is slowing, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Kia will notify owners, and dealers will install an additional wire harness to the main fuse box to signal the trailer brake lights free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin September 10, 2020.
Owners may contact Kia customer service at (800) 333-4542. Kia's number for this recall is SC194.
