TL CONTACT OWNS A 2005 HONDA ACCORD. THE CONTACT HAD A 40,000 MILE REPAIR PERFORMED AT THE DEALER. FOUR DAYS LATER, THE GAUGE CONTROL MODULE SHORTED OUT INTERNALLY. THE DEALER ATTEMPTED TO REPROGRAM THE MODULE, BUT WAS UNSUCCESSFUL. THE MODULE WAS SENT OUT TO PAOLO ALTO, CA TO BE REPROGRAMMED. ONCE IT WAS COMPLETED, THE MODULE WAS RETURNED TO THE DEALER FOR INSTALLATION IN THE VEHICLE. A COUPLE OF MONTHS LATER, WHILE DRIVING AT AN UNKNOWN SPEED WITH THE CRUISE CONTROL ACTIVATED, IT WOULD NOT DISENGAGE WHEN THE BRAKE PEDAL WAS DEPRESSED. THE VEHICLE WAS LOCKED IN THE CRUISE CONTROL MODE AND IT CONTINUED MOVING TOWARDS ONCOMING TRAFFIC. THE CONTACT LOST CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE AND CRASHED INTO TWO VEHICLES. THE CONTACT AND ANOTHER PERSON WERE INJURED. THE VEHICLE WAS DESTROYED. A POLICE REPORT WAS FILED. THE INVESTIGATOR STATED THAT THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER MODULE CAUSED THE CRASH. THE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS 40,000.
