Ford Motor Co (NYSE: F) is recalling nearly 200,000 cars in the United States, the Associated Press reported on Wednesday.
What Happened: The recalls are related to a problem that can stop the brake lights from turning off.

What’s The Issue: The recalls are related to a rubber brake pedal part, which could disintegrate in high temperatures and humidity and keep the lights on, confusing other drivers and increasing the risk of a crash.
The report did not say if the issue has led to any injuries or incident.
What Next: Owners of the vehicles would be notified by mail starting March 3 and dealers would replace brake and clutch pedal bumpers.
Price Action: Ford shares closed 7.9% lower at $22.4 a share on Wednesday. The stock is up 3% so far this year.
