Problem Description

Due to a software problem in the electronic control module of the tow-bar, the brake light of a trailer attached to the vehicle is not activated when the towing vehicle slows down through the cruise control. This increases the risk of accidents for following vehicles.

The vehicles affected were produced between 20 March 2015 and 18 May 2016.
