WASHINGTON — General Motors is recalling 1,627 2014 Chevrolet Impalas and 2013 Cadillac ATS and XTS vehicles because the brake lamps may flash intermittently and the cruise control may disengage, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"On the affected vehicles, the brake lamps may intermittently flash without the brakes being applied and the cruise control may disengage," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "If the brake lamps flash when the vehicle is not slowing, a following driver may not adjust vehicle speed when the vehicle is in fact braking, and the brake lamps are illuminated as intended, increasing the risk of a crash."

GM told federal safety regulators there have been no customer complaints about the defect as of May 23, 2013. The automaker said the issue was discovered on a Cadillac ATS at the assembly plant.

Chevrolet and Cadillac dealers will reprogram the body control module. The recall will begin on June 7. Owners can contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438 or Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339.

Edmunds says: An inconvenience to owners of the affected cars, but at least this GM recall gets off the ground in a few days.
