GM has announced that they are recalling certain model year 2014 Chevrolet Impala vehicles. They stated that on affected vehicles, the brake lamps may intermittently flash without the brakes being applied and the cruise control may disengage. Thus, these vehicles fail to conform with the requirements of federal motor vehicle Safety Standard No 108, “Lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment”.
If the brake lamps flash when the vehicle is not slowing, a following driver may not adjust vehicle speed when the vehicle is in fact braking, and the brake lights are illuminating as intended, increasing the risk of a crash. GM will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the body control module. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438.
