EVEN AFTER BRAKE LIGHT RECALL FROM 2014, I CONTINUE TO HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THE BRAKE LIGHTS ILLUMINATING WHEN I'M NOT PRESSING THE BRAKE PEDAL, AND TURNING OFF WHEN I PRESS THE BRAKE PEDAL. I'VE HAD THIS PROBLEM 'FIXED' SEVERAL TIMES NOW, AND IT KEEPS HAPPENING. MOST RECENTLY, IN JANUARY 2019, AND NOW 6 MONTHS LATER, IT IS HAPPENING AGAIN. WHILE I'M DRIVING (AND NOT ALWAYS WHILE I'M BRAKING), THE SERVICE TRACTION, SERVICE ESC, ESC OFF WARNINGS COME ON MY INFO DISPLAY, AS WELL AS THE TRACTION CONTROL IMAGE. FROM THAT MOMENT ON, WHILE I'M DRIVING AND NOT PRESSING THE BRAKE PEDAL, MY BRAKE LIGHTS ARE ALL ILLUMINATED. WHEN I LIGHTLY PRESS ON THE BRAKE, THE LIGHTS GO OFF, UNLESS I CONTINUE TO PRESS HARDER ON THE PEDAL, AND THEN THEY'LL COME ON AGAIN. THIS IS SUCH A HAZARD WHILE I'M DRIVING THAT I DON'T EVEN WANT TO GO ANYWHERE. WHY DOES THIS KEEP HAPPENING? IF THIS WAS SUPPOSEDLY FIXED WITH THE RECALL, IT ABSOLUTELY WASN'T. I'VE SEEN OTHER PEOPLE REPORT THE SAME ISSUE ON THE ONLINE FORUMS, SO I KNOW I'M NOT ALONE WITH THIS PROBLEM. IT IS A MAJOR SAFETY ISSUE AND NEEDS TO BE FIXED NOW! I WILL BE GOING BACK TO THE DEALER WHO DID THE REPAIR IN JANUARY TO GET THIS FIXED AGAIN, BUT I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY I SHOULD NEED TO. IT SHOULDN'T CONTINUE TO HAPPEN IF IT IS REALLY BEING FIXED. SOMETHING ELSE IS WRONG WITH THIS VEHICLE.

VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

7/6/2019 - ROMEOVILLE, IL
ESC , TRACTION CONTROL LIGHTS COME ON. THEN REAR BRAKE LIGHTS WORK OPPOSITE OF STANDARD BRAKE LIGHT DESIGN. THE REAR BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON WHILE DRIVING. WHEN BRAKE PEDAL IS DEPRESSED, THE BRAKE LIGHTS TURN OFF. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR TWO YEARS NOW. THE DEALERSHIP JUST PATCHES THE REPAIR. THE REPAIR ONLY LASTS A FEW WEEKS.
