2015-'16 Kia K900 Recalled for LED Headlight Defect


WASHINGTON — Kia Motors America is recalling 3,099 2015-'16 Kia K900 sedans because of a defect with the LED headlights, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"When using the multi-function light switch in 'Auto' mode, electrical resistance may build in the switch and result in the headlights flickering or turning off when driving," NHTSA said in its recall summary. "Loss of headlight illumination may reduce visibility and increase the risk of a crash."

There are no accidents or injuries linked to the recall, Kia told federal safety regulators. As of April 7, there were 79 warranty claims associated with the problem.

The affected vehicles were built from December 18, 2013 to January 11, 2016.

Kia dealers will replace the multi-function switch. The recall is expected to begin on May 27. Owners can contact Kia customer service at 1-800-333-4542.

Edmunds says: Owners should schedule a service appointment with their dealer once they receive their official recall notice. But if you have an immediate concern, it's best to contact your dealer now.
