Identifying features

VIN (Vehicle identification number)

What are the defects?

Due to a software error, the tail lamps on one or both sides may not illuminate as intended. If this occurs during dark conditions, the traffic behind will have reduced visibility and may not be able to identify the vehicle.

Note: Brake lamps, reverse lamps and turn signal lamps are not affected by this condition and continue to operate as intended.

What are the hazards?

If the traffic behind is unable to identify the vehicle, it could increase the risk of an accident causing serious injury or death to vehicle occupants and other road users.

What should consumers do?

This recall is addressed by updating the vehicle software, which does not require the customer to schedule a service appointment. The software release that contains the remedy has deployed over-the-air (OTA) to all affected vehicles. If your vehicle is running software version 2022.40.100 or 2022.40.1 or later, your vehicle is not subject to this issue. You can confirm your vehicle’s software version by tapping 'Controls' > 'Software’ on your touchscreen.
