1999 Ferrari 360 Modena and 360 Modena F1 Recalled

Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting the 1999 Ferrari 360 Modena and 360 Modena F1 automobiles.  The affected automobiles were manufactured between December 1998 and December 1999.

These sports cars can have a software programming error in the integrated electronic instrument cluster. This error exists in the brake system warning light monitoring function of the instrument cluster.

The red electronic brake distribution warning light does not illuminate. As a result, if a brake problem were to exist, the driver would not be aware of it.

353 automobiles are affected by this recall.

Dealers will remove the instrument cluster from the vehicle and download updated software into the instrument cluster.

The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during March 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ferrari at 1-201-816-2600.

[NHTSA Recall No. 01V025]
