Recall Category: Service Brakes, Hydraulic – Brake Light malfunction and possible rollaway risk

NHTSA Safety Notification 22V011000 reports exposure to certain environmental conditions, such as high temperatures, high humidity and salt air can cause the Brake Pedal Bumper to corrode and separate from the Brake Pedal.

Logo - MercuryAccording to the NHTSA, a separated Brake Pedal Bumper can cause the Brake lights to illuminate continuously, causing confusion to other drivers and increasing the risk of a crash, motor vehicle collision (“MVC”) or other impact event with consequential serious injury and/or life-changing results. On automatic transmission vehicles, a missing Brake Pedal Bumper can allow the driver to shift the vehicle out of the PARK position without depressing the Brake, allowing the vehicle to rollaway, increasing the risk of injury.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly treat lacerations, concussions, bone fractures, amputation, central nervous system (“CNS”) damage and/or internal injuries.

Please note that under 49 United States Code § 30112(a), it is illegal for anyone, including a manufacturer, distributor, dealer or retailer to sell an item of equipment or vehicle that fails to comply with all applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards.
