The problem: affected trucks are equipped with the accessory Sport Bar, which features an integrated high-mounted brake light that may not function. In addition, it may block the vehicle’s existing factory high-mounted brake light. As such, these vehicles may fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, “lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment.
The hazards: an inoperative rear high-mounted brake light may reduce visibility to other drivers and increase the risk of a crash, according to NHTSA. As mentioned above, a vehicle without this light will also fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.
The fix: dealers will be advised to inspect the installation of the accessory Sport Ba and provide the correct vehicle wiring, if necessary, to ensure the high-mounted brake light is operating as intended. These repairs will be performed at no cost to the vehicle owner.
Affected components: accessory Sport Bar, high-mounted brake light.
