Porsche is recalling nearly 12,000 model year 2020-2021 Taycan electric vehicles to address an issue with the pre-collision automatic hazard lights that may activate in non-emergency situations.
The recall notice covers 11,827 Taycan EVs sold in the US, which is every example delivered for the 2020 and 2021 model year.
At the end of August, Porsche gained knowledge that “the subject vehicles are programmed with pre-collision automatic hazard warning lamp activation logic that may exceed the automatic activation functionality permitted by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.”
Porsche notes the feature is allowed in other markets.
Porsche dealers will reprogram the hazard lights, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed December 13, 2021.
Taycan owners may contact Porsche customer service at 1-800-767-7243. Porsche’s number for this recall is AMC1.
