Brake Lights May Stay Illuminated - Increased Risk of Crash


Dear BRP Customer, 


This notice is sent to you in accordance with the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act.

As a result, BRP is conducting a safety recall.

Potential contamination or component friction in the brake light switch may cause the brake lights to stay illuminated, even when the brake pedal is not pressed. If the brake lights remain illuminated, it can fail to alert other motorists of the rider's intention and increase the risk of a crash.
