Kia Soul Recalls

The affected Kia models are being recalled because the brake light switch can fail prematurely, resulting in the loss of brake light operation as well as concerns with other electrical systems including: Cruise control, push-button start feature, shifter, and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system. Dealers will replace the brake light switch to correct this concern.

The front and/or rear doors have special wiring to control certain lighting functions. Electrical connections in these wire harnesses are soldered to help ensure a solid connection. These vehicles are being recalled because the solder joints in these lighting harnesses may not have been manufactured to the proper specification and when the lights are illuminated under certain conditions, an electrical short circuit may occur that can result in an electrical fire. Dealers will replace the necessary parts to address this concern.
