If the brake light does not illuminate when a turn signal is activated, other drivers may be confused, increasing the risk of a crash.

Manufacturer BMW of North America, LLC

Components EXTERIOR LIGHTING

Potential Number of Units Affected 16,883

Summary

BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain 2016-2017 MINI Cooper Clubman, Cooper S Clubman and JCW Clubman vehicles. When the affected vehicles are braking and the turn signals are on, the inner, bumper-mounted, brake light will go out.

Remedy

MINI will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the vehicle to correct the brake lighting, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 22, 2017. Owners may contact MINI customer service at 1-866-825-1525.
