Sorry, I just saw your response. This recall was created due to the brake switches becoming defective internally. The original ones are made with brushes inside and after awhile they wear out and break. Similar to brushes on a starter. This can cause the check engine light, ABS light, and/or the ESC light. This really affects the newer cars that have the push button start as it does not allow the driver to start the vehicle with a defective brake switch. The newer brake switches are changed into a transistor type that does not wear very easily.
