WASHINGTON – Curt Manufacturing Inc. is recalling nearly 2,400 tow-package wiring harnesses (part number 56024) that connect tow vehicle lighting circuits to trailer lighting circuits. The recalled wiring harnesses were sold for use on model-year 2009-2011 Hyundai Veracruz and Kia Sorento vehicles.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the units are not water-tight. Moisture can seep into the converter module and defeat the module’s internal circuit protection. This poses a risk of overheating and potentially fire.
Curt Manufacturing will notify owners and replace the tow package wiring harness free of charge. The company can be reached at (715) 831-8713.
