Isuzu Manufacturing Services of America "Isuzu" is recalling certain model year 2012-2014 Reach chassis manufactured July 26, 2011, to August 7, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the brake light switch may be bent while braking, possibly causing it to not activate the brake lights and potentially corrode.
If the brake light switch bends or corrodes, the brake light switch may become inoperative, increasing the risk of a crash.
Isuzu will notify owners, and dealers will apply a protector and a waterproof cover with an extension harness so that the switch cannot be bent or corroded, free of charge. Parts are not currently available. Owners will be sent an interim notification and then will be sent a second notice when remedy parts are available. Isuzu issued an interim notification to owners on December 17, 2014. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Isuzu customer service at 1-866-441-9638.
