Subaru has announced a recall for a number of 2014-2016 model year Forester, 2011-2014 WRX (four-door), 2008-2016 Impreza and 2012-2017 Subaru XV vehicle models over a potential issue concerning the brake light switch on these cars.

The automaker says that in certain cases, silicone gas from certain consumer products may seep through the housing of the brake light switch and impact operation of the circuit. As a result, functions related to the brake light switch (brake light, transmission interlock, ignition interlock, Vehicle Dynamics Control and EyeSights system) may stop operating.

If this were to occur, the company says that the failure of the brake lights will result in other road users being unaware of the driver’s intention to stop the vehicle, thereby increasing the risk of accidental collisions.

Motor Image says the recall exercise involves affected vehicles in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. Owners will be notified about this recall, and Motor Image will arrange to replace the brake light switch and related parts in the affected cars, free of charge.
