On certain passenger vehicles equipped with adjustable brake pedals, the stop lamp switch wiring harness may be out of position. An improperly positioned stop lamp switch wiring harness could make contact with the U-joint assembly of the steering column. Repeated contact may eventually cause the wiring harness insulation to chafe.
Dealers will inspect the wiring harness for chafing and, repair if necessary. In addition, the dealer will secure the wiring harness to prevent contact with the U-joint assembly. The recall began on September 29, 2006. Owners may contact Kia at 1-800-333-4542.
