Lamborghini Gallardo Recall Addresses Malfunctioning Warning Lights

A number of Lamborghini Gallardos might have a warning light on that keeps disappearing every time the ignition is being turned off, which is why certain versions of the previous-gen supercar have been subjected to a recall.

The safety campaign involves 1,152 units of potentially defective Gallardo Coupes and Spyders in the United States, produced between June 23, 2010 and November 20, 2013.

An ECU software issue is responsible for erasing trouble codes every time the ignition is being switched off. This means that drivers can’t be warned of a potential problems, as the warning lamps don’t illuminate, and continuing to drive the car with a faulty system can increase the risk of crash and/or injury, says the NHTSA.

Owners of the Gallardos included in this recall will be notified by the automaker soon. Subsequently to scheduling an appointment with an authorized Lamborghini dealer, the company’s technicians will inspect the car and reflash the engine software, free of charge.

The NHTSA expects the recall to commence on December 14. Meanwhile, owners who would like to find out more about this safety campaign can contact their Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236, or Lamborghini Customer Service at 1-866-681-6276.

Manufactured between 2003 and 2013, the Gallardo remains the firm’s best-selling model to date. Over 14,000 units left the assembly lineduring this time, including numerous special editions and derivatives. The Gallardo was eventually replaced by the Huracan, another highly successful model, which already hit the 11,000-unit production mark earlier this year and looks set to overcome the Gallardo over its lifespan.
