Mitsubishi Motor Sales of America, Inc.
Models: Mitsubishi Galant Years: 1994-1995
Number Involved: 17,079
Dates of Manufacture: July 1993 - December 1994
Defect: When the stop lamp switch was assembled, grease was inadvertently applied to the contact point, causing the contact point to heat up and allowing internal operation elements to melt. The switch will stick in the ON or OFF position, causing the anti-lock braking system (ABS) warning light to come on.
Remedy: Dealers will install
a relay and replace the brake lamp switch. Owner notification is expected to begin during
the fall of 1998. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time
should contact Mitsubishi at 1-800-222-0037. [NHTSA Recall No.98V212]
