Atlanta, GA – October 30, 2021 – Porsche (OTCMKTS:POAHY) has recalled 11,827 2020 – 2021 Porsche Taycan electric vehicles whose hazard lights may come on automatically in the absence of an emergency. This issue increases the risk of an accident.
The recalled Taycan’s hazard lights are programmed to light up automatically in “non-emergency situations.” It is unknown under what circumstances this happens.
If these Porsche Taycans’ hazard lights are flashing in the absence of an emergency, this “could confuse other road users,” increasing the risk of a crash.
If the hazard lights are activated, the driver may notice the activation of the respective signage in the instrument cluster.
Porsche dealers will reprogram the headlights for free to remove the automatic hazard lights activation altogether. Recall notification letters with further instructions will be mailed to owners starting December 13, 2021.
