Kia Motors America is recalling 3,099 2015-2016 model-year K900 sedans because their headlights might fail, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

The recall covers Kia K900 luxury sedans manufactured from Dec. 18, 2013, to Jan. 11 of this year. They are all equipped with LED headlights.

When the multi-function light switch is in “auto” mode, electrical resistance may build in the switch and result in the headlights flickering or turning off while the car is in operation.

“Loss of headlight illumination may reduce visibility and increase the risk of a crash,” NHTSA said on its website.

Kia dealers will replace the multi-function switch, free of charge, to fix the problem. The recall is expected to begin May 27.

Vehicle owners can reach Kia customer service at (800) 333-4542. Kia's number for this recall is SC130.
