NEWS: GM calls back 822,000 vehicles in 6 new campaigns
Detroit News  @ July 24, 2014

JULY 2014 -- General Motors Co. said Wednesday it is recalling 822,685 vehicles worldwide — including 717,950 vehicles in the United States — in six new recall campaigns.

In the latest of a long string of callbacks, most are for minor problems. None are related to ignition switch defects that have plagued the automaker.

The recalls mean GM North America has issued a record 60 recall campaigns this year affecting 28.77 million vehicles worldwide and 25.48 million in the United States. GM revised downward its June 30 recall of Malibus, Impalas and other vehicles for ignition switch problems by 1.02 million vehicles to 6.6 million worldwide.

The biggest recall announced Wednesday covers 475,000 newer cars and trucks worldwide (414,333 in the U.S.) with power height-adjustable driver or front passenger seats. A bolt that secures the seat could fall out, letting the seat move up and down. Affected models include the 2011-12 Chevrolet Camaro; 2010-12 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain; 2011-12 Buick Regal and LaCrosse; and 2010-12 Cadillac SRX. GM is aware of one crash and three injuries linked to the defect. Dealers will replace the bolt.

MORE RECALL INFO: 

“These recalls signify how we’ve enhanced our approach to safety,” said Jeff Boyer, GM’s vice president of Global Vehicle Safety. “We are bringing greater rigor and discipline to our analysis and decision-making. If we identify an issue — large or small — that might affect the safety of our customers, we will act decisively.”

GM had decided on four of the recalls last Tuesday, and GM CEO Mary Barra disclosed the higher total before a Senate committee.

Eric Ibara, director of residual values for Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com, said GM’s latest recalls “involve models that are currently being sold by the various GM brands, unlike earlier recalls on discontinued models. Going forward, attention will be focused on whether sales and values are impacted on these models.”

More than half of GM’s 29 million vehicles recalled this year are ignition-switch related, including 2.6 million Cobalts, Ions and other cars linked to at least 13 deaths. GM has recalled nearly all nameplates of 2014 models except the Volt and some versions of models like the Spark EV.

Other recalls announced Wednesday include:

■ 124,008 -- 2014 Chevrolet Caprice; 2014 Chevrolet SS; 2014-2015 Chevrolet Silverado LD and HD; 2013-14 Cadillac ATS; 2014 Cadillac CTS, 2014 Cadillac ELR; 2013-14 Buick Encore; and 2014-15 GMC Sierra LD and HD vehicles. Some may have an incomplete weld on the seat-hook bracket assembly. If the weld is incomplete, dealers will replace the lower seat track. Less than 1 percent of welds are expected to require fixes. GM is unaware of crashes or injuries.

MORE RECALL INFO: 

■ 120,426 -- 2011-13 Buick Regals and 2013 Chevrolet Malibus that use two bulbs in each front turn signal. The driver gets a rapidly flashing turn signal arrow in the instrument cluster if both bulbs in one turn signal are burned out; but if only one bulb on either side burns out, there would be no signal to the driver. Dealers will reprogram the body control module. GM knows of no crashes, injuries or complaints.

MORE RECALL INFO: 

■ 57,242 -- 2014 Chevrolet Impalas equipped with belt-drive electric power steering. Owners may experience reduced or no power-steering assist at start-up or while driving due to a poor electrical ground connection. If power steering is lost, a warning message is displayed on the driver information center and a chime sounds. The cars will revert to manual steering mode, requiring greater to steer, particularly at low speed. Dealers will check the ground and update the power steering control module’s software. GM is aware of one crash but no injuries.

MORE RECALL INFO: 

■ 1,919 -- 2014-15 Chevrolet Sparks imported from Korea assembled with lower control arm bolts that were not fastened to specification. The condition could result in separation of the lower control arm from the steering knuckle, resulting in loss of steering control. Dealers will make sure the bolts are properly tightened. GM knows of no crashes or injuries.

MORE RECALL INFO: 

■ 22 -- 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe/Suburban and GMC Yukon/Yukon Denali vehicles in the U.S. Roof carriers may have been attached with the wrong retaining nuts, resulting in holes or tears in the roof rail air bags if they deploy. Eight of these vehicles are in dealer stock and will be repaired before being sold.

NEWS: GM recalls 8.4M vehicles in 6 new campaigns
Detroit News  @ June 30, 2014

JUNE 2014 -- General Motors Co. is recalling 8.45 million vehicles in the U.S. in six new recall campaigns — including more than 8 million vehicles for unintended ignition key rotation linked to reports of three deaths and eight injuries.

The two new recalls for ignition switch issues are the latest major campaign since February, when GM began calling back 2.6 million vehicles linked to 13 deaths and 54 crashes.

One recall for unintended ignition key rotation covers 6.8 million vehicles in the United States including the 1997-2005 Chevrolet Malibu; 1998-2002 Oldsmobile Intrique; 1999-2004 Oldsmobile Alero; 1999-2005 Pontiac Grand Am; 2000-05 Chevrolet Impala and Monte Carlo; and 2004-08 Pontiac Grand Prix

The other covers about 620,000 2003-14 Cadillac CTS, 2004-06 Cadillac SRX cars.

GM said the fatal crashes occurred in older model full-size sedans being recalled for inadvertent ignition key rotation. There is no conclusive evidence that the defect caused those crashes, GM said.

“We undertook what I believe is the most comprehensive safety review in the history of our company because nothing is more important than the safety of our customers,” said GM CEO Mary Barra. “Our customers deserve more than we delivered in these vehicles. That has hardened my resolve to set a new industry standard for vehicle safety, quality and excellence.”

GM said it will boost the amount it is setting aside to cover recall repairs to $2.5 billion in the first half of the year, up from $2 billion.

GM CEO said earlier this month the automaker was conducting an ongoing review of all outstanding safety issues with the goal of resolving all outstanding issues by the end of the month, which is today.

Earlier this month, GM recalled about 4 million cars for ignition switch problems in two separate campaigns. GM linked the recall of 3.4 million Impalas and other cars to eight crashes and six injuries.

GM also recalled more than 510,000 current-generation Chevrolet Camaros for ignition switch problems linked to three crashes in which air bags failed to deploy.

In the previously announced Impala ignition switch recall, GM said it will rework or replace the ignition keys on some 2000-14 cars in the U.S. because the ignition switch may inadvertently move out of the “run” position if the key is carrying extra weight and experiences a jarring event. That causes the engine to stall, disabling power steering, power brakes and air bags.

That recall affects various Buicks, Chevrolets and Cadillacs from model-year 2000-14. GM said just one of the models included in the U.S. recall for ignition switch problems — which totals 3.16 million — is still in production: the Impala Limited, which is sold to rental fleets. The total number being recalled in North America — U.S., Canada, Mexico and exports — is 3.36 million.

With the new recalls announced today, GM has called back more than 25 million vehicles in the United States this year in 54 separate campaigns.

That means GM has shattered the all-time record for most vehicles recalled in a single year by an automaker. Ford Motor Co. recalled 21 million vehicles in 1981, but it was only to warn them that 1970-79 model-year cars and trucks could roll away — not to make any mechanical fix.

NEWS: GM recalls 472,000 vehicles in 3 new campaigns
Detroit News  @ June 27, 2014

JUNE 2014 -- General Motors Co. said late Friday it is issuing three new recall campaigns covering about 472,000 vehicles worldwide.

The latest recalls mean that GM has called back about 20.5 million vehicles worldwide this year including 18 million in the United States.

The largest of the recalls announced Friday covers about 465,000 new SUVs and pickup trucks that could accidentally shift into neutral while driving — or roll away if the parking brake is not set in unattended vehicles. It affects some 2014-15 Chevrolet Silverados and GMC Sierras; the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban; and the 2015 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL.

Dealers will recalibrate transfer-case control module software. GM said that in these vehicles, the transfer case may electronically switch to neutral without the shifter being moved. If this occurs while a vehicle is in motion, no power will go to the wheels. If the vehicle is parked, it may roll away if the parking brake is not set. GM is not aware of crashes or injuries related to the issue.

The recall covers 392,459 pickups and SUVs in the U.S. and 53,607 in Canada. An additional 20,874 were sold elsewhere.

MORE RECALL INFO: 

GM also is also recalling nearly 4,800 Chevrolet Caprice police cars and 2014 Chevrolet SS sport sedans in the United States for windshield wiper problems. If the motor gear teeth become stripped, the wipers may not operate. Dealers will inspect, and replace if necessary, the windshield wiper module assembly. GM is unaware of any crashes or injuries.

MORE RECALL INFO: 

The rear shock absorbers in 1,939 2014 model-year Chevrolet Corvettes in the U.S. with the FE1 or FE3 suspension may have insufficient welds that could lead to a fracture or reduce the shocks’ service life. Dealers will replace the shocks. Thirty-three additional vehicles were sold in Canada and another 82 were exported. GM is unaware of crashes or injuries.

NEWS: General Motors has told dealers in the U.S. and Canada to stop selling 2013 and 2014 Chevrolet Cruzes because of a potential defect in air bags
Detroit Free Press  @ June 26, 2014

JUNE 2014 -- General Motors has told dealers in the U.S. and Canada to stop selling 2013 and 2014 Chevrolet Cruzes because of a potential defect in air bags made by beleaguered air bag supplier Takata.

A stop-sale order is not a recall, but it could have an immediate impact on Cruze sales, at least in the final days of June. Introduced in 2009, the Cruze is GM’s top-selling car. GM has sold 119,330 Cruzes this year through May, or 18.4% more than it did in the first five months of 2013.

The air bag issue is not related to the defective ignition switch at the heart of GM’s recall of 2.6-million small cars from last decade that is tied to 13 deaths, more than 50 crashes and four investigations.

“Certain vehicles may be equipped with a suspect driver’s air bag inflator module that may have been assembled with an incorrect part,” GM spokesman Jim Cain said in a statement.

GM notified dealers of the stop-sale order on Tuesday. About 33,000 vehicles may have been built with the suspect part supplied by Takata. The vast majority are in the U.S. and Canada.

GM is in the process of lifting the stop sale. The company is getting close to being able to identify the cars with the potentially defective part. Once it does, dealers will be able to isolate those cars with the bad batch of parts and sell the cars that are OK.

The issue is different from a problem with the chemical degradation of Takata air bags on older model cars that caused seven automakers to recall millions of cars.

GM’s stop-sale order, first reported by Automotive News, is the company’s latest setback in a six-month period in which it has recalled more than 20 million cars, a number that exceeds its recalls in any year.

GM has been under intense scrutiny since February for recalling a defective ignition switch in older model Chevrolet Cobalts, HHRs, Saturn Ions and Skys and Pontiac G5s more than a decade after GM engineers noticed the defect.

In March, GM told Chevrolet dealers to stop selling 2013 and 2014 Cruzes with the 1.4-liter turbo four-cylinder engine to fix an axle that can fracture and separate without warning during normal driving.

Last month, GM issued another stop-sale order on about 3,500 new pickups and SUVs as the company investigated an undisclosed issue. READ MORE....

NEWS: GM recalls 3.4M cars for ignition switch problems
Detroit News  @ June 16, 2014

JUNE 2014 -- General Motors Co. said Monday it is recalling nearly 3.4 million cars for ignition switch problems worldwide after reports of eight crashes and six injuries. It is one of six new recall campaigns totaling 3.6 million vehicles that was announced by the automaker.

The recall — which is similar to GM’s delayed recall of 2.6 million older Cobalt, Ion and other cars linked to 13 deaths and 54 crashes due to faulty ignition switches — comes as the automaker’s woes continue to mount. On Friday, GM recalled more than 510,000 current-generation Chevrolet Camaros for ignition switch problems linked to three crashes in which air bags failed to deploy.

In the ignition switch recall announced Monday, GM said it will rework or replace the ignition keys on some 2000-14 cars in the U.S. because the ignition switch may inadvertently move out of the “run” position if the key is carrying extra weight and experiences some jarring event. That causes the engine to stall, disabling power steering, power brakes and air bags.

Recalled cars include:

GM spokesman said now-fired engineer — who received much of the blame for the delayed recall in GM’s investigation, was the “design-release engineer” for the switches involved in the new recall announced Monday. Now-fired engineer signed off on the original Cobalt ignition switch in 2002 that didn’t meet GM’s specifications and approved an upgrade in the switch in 2005 and didn’t change the part number, the report found.

GM spokesman said the switches in the latest recall did meet GM’s specifications. He noted that unlike the Cobalt and Ion recall, the automaker isn't replacing the ignition switches, only the keys. GM will add an insert to the ignition keys of the recalled vehicles to close the slot and leave a smaller hole through which a key ring could be attached. In vehicles where the key cover has been worn, new keys with holes instead of slots will be provided free of charge.

Fixes are expected to begin in the next few weeks. Until then, owners of recalled cars are urged to remove additional weight from key chains and drive with only the ignition key.

GM said just one of the models included in the U.S. recall for ignition switch problems — which totals 3.16 million — is still in production: the previous-generation Chevrolet Impala, which is sold to rental fleets as the Impala Limited. The total number being recalled in North America — U.S., Canada, Mexico and exports — is 3.36 million.

In addition to the ignition key recall, GM also announced U.S. recalls for 165,770 vehicles in these five actions:

68,887 2013-14 Cadillac ATS and 21,863 2014 Cadillac CTS sedans. In some vehicles with automatic transmissions, the shift cable may not be fully secured to the shifter bracket or transmission bracket. If the shift cable comes out of the brackets, the driver may not be able to shift in or out of gear. GM is unaware of crashes or injuries.

57,192 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500/3500 HD and 2015 GMC Sierra 2500/3500 GMC Sierra HD pickups to inspect for proper attachment of power steering hose clamps to the power steering pump. If hose comes loose, loss of power steering and power brakes would result. GM knows of no crashes or injuries.

16,932 2011 Cadillac CTS sedans with all-wheel drive. On some vehicles, a gasket leak where the constant velocity joint meets the rear propeller shaft may cause the rear propeller shaft to separate or become loose, making contact with the vehicle floor above and causing the rollover sensor to inflate roof-rail air bags. GM is aware of 15 unintended deployments, but injury data is unclear.

712 2014 Chevrolet Corvettes with optional Competition Sport Seats, because an unbelted child and door trim may block the passenger seat side air bag vent. Dealers will replace the bag. GM is unaware of any injuries related to this condition, but advises customers to not allow small children in the front seat until it’s serviced.

184 2014-15 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups with vinyl floors and accessory all-weather floor mats purchased new with the vehicle. The mats can slip under the driver’s feet because the vinyl floors have no attachments to secure them in place. Customers are advised to take the floor mats to their dealer for a full refund. GM is unaware of any crashes or injuries.

GM has issued 44 recalls this year calling back 20 million vehicles worldwide, including 17.7 million in the United States — by far an all-time record. The tally includes some vehicles that have been called back more than once.


NEWS: GM recalls 510,000 Camaros for ignition problem linked to 3 crashes
Detroit News  @ June 13, 2014

JUNE 2014 -- General Motors Co. is recalling more than 500,000 vehicles because the airbags could fail to deploy in a frontal crash if a driver’s knee bumps the key fob and causes the key to move out of the “run” position.

The Detroit automaker said it is recalling 510,000 2010-14 Chevrolet Camaros after reports of four minor injuries linked to three crashes where the air bags failed to deploy, said GM spokesman Alan Adler. The automaker doesn’t have conclusive evidence that the airbags failed to deploy because the key moved to the “accessory” or “off” position.

The issue is similar to the problem that was linked to the delayed recall of 2.6 million older Cobalt, Ion and other cars but not the same. In those cases, a heavy key chain could cause the ignition key to move out of position — and the issue has been linked to 13 deaths and 54 crashes. GM was fined $35 million for failing to recall the vehicles for more than a decade, and last week, GM CEO Mary Barra fired 15 employees and disciplined five over the issue. The Justice Department is investigating and a House committee will a hold a hearing on the issue next week.

GM said the issue may primarily affect drivers sitting close to the steering column and was discovered by GM during internal testing following the ignition switch recall earlier this year. The Camaro ignition system meets all GM engineering specifications and is unrelated to the ignition system used in Chevrolet Cobalts and other small cars included in the ignition switch recall, GM said.

GM will change the Camaro key to a standard design from one in which the key is concealed in the FOB and is opened by pushing a button. The change will make the ignition key and FOB independent of each other, so that inadvertent contact with the FOB won’t move the key from the “run” position. There are 464,712 Camaros from the 2010-14 model years in the U.S. included in the recall and nearly 50,000 elsewhere.

In total, GM has now issued 38 recall campaigns and called back nearly 16.5 million vehicles worldwide this year — an all-time record number of vehicles called back in a single year.

GM said it expects to have parts in a couple weeks.

Separately, GM also announced three other recalls involving a total of 65,121 cars in the U.S., all three of which were reported to the NHTSA on Wednesday. Including Canada, Mexico and exports, the total recall population is 69,839.

The other recalls are:

■28,789 Saab 9-3 convertibles from the 2004-11 model years for an automatic tensioning system cable in the driver’s side front seat belt retractor that could break. If the cable were to break, seat belt webbing spooled out by the driver would not retract. Dealers will replace the driver’s side retractor in the recalled vehicles. In addition, GM has issued a special coverage, so that if the same repair is required to the passenger side retractor it will be covered for the life of the vehicle. GM is unaware of any crashes, injuries or fatalities due to this condition.

■21,567 2012 Chevrolet Sonic compacts equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission and a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine for a condition in which the transmission turbine shaft may fracture as a result of a supplier quality issue. If this were to occur in first or second gear, the vehicle could not upshift into third through sixth gears. If the turbine shift fractured while in one of the higher gears, the vehicle would coast until it was moving slow enough to downshift into first or second gear. In both instances, a malfunction indicator lamp may illuminate. If driven in this condition for a long period of time, all forward gears may become inoperable. The engine would continue to run and all power accessories would function. Dealers will replace the transmission turbine shaft. GM is unaware of any crashes, injuries or fatalities related to this condition.

■14,765 2014 Buick LaCrosse sedans because a wiring splice in the driver’s door may corrode and break. That may communicate incorrect information to circuits that control the door chime and allow passenger windows, rear windows and the sunroof to function when the vehicle is turned off and the driver is not in the vehicle. In addition, a chime will not sound when the driver’s door is opened if the key is in the ignition. GM is unaware of any thefts, crashes, injuries or fatalities related to this condition.


NEWS: GM recalling 105,000 vehicles in four campaigns
Detroit News  @ June 6, 2014

JUNE 2014 -- General Motors Co. said Friday it is issuing four new recall campaigns covering nearly 150,000 vehicles in the United States — including three new recalls for air bag problems.

The largest recall involves 69,500 2014 Chevrolet Silverado LD, 2014 GMC Sierra LD and 2015 Silverado HD, Tahoe and Suburban and 2015 GMC Sierra HD and Yukon and Yukon XL models worldwide, 57,512 in the U.S. because the “base radio may not work, preventing audible warnings if the key is in the ignition when the driver’s door is opened. Nor would there be an audible chime if a front seat belt is not buckled. If they had this condition, the trucks would be out of compliance with motor vehicle safety standards covering theft protection, rollaway protection and occupant crash protection. Dealers will reprogram the radio control module free of charge.”

The Detroit automaker is also recalling 36,012 worldwide, 31,520 in the U.S., 2012 Buick Verano and Chevrolet Camaro, Cruze and Sonic compact cars for a defect in which the shorting bar inside the dual stage driver’s air bag may occasionally contact the air bag terminals. If contact occurs, the air bag warning light will turn on. GM said if the car and terminals are contacting each other in a crash, the air bag will not deploy. Dealers will replace the steering wheel air bag coil, which will eliminate contact any between the shorting bar and the air bag terminals. GM is aware of one crash with an injury where the relevant diagnostic trouble code was found at the time the vehicle was repaired. GM said it is aware of other crashes where air bags did not deploy but it is not known if they were related to this condition. This is the second time since 2012 that GM has expanded the recall population. Its previous recall for this condition involved 7,000 of these vehicles.

GM is also issuing two recalls of each less than 100 vehicles. GM is recalling 61 2013-2014 Chevrolet Spark and 2013 model year Buick Encores manufactured in Changwon, Korea from Dec. 30, 2012 through May 8, 2013 because the vehicles may have a condition in which the front passenger airbag end cap could separate from the airbag inflator. In a crash, this may prevent the passenger airbag from deploying properly.

GM is also recalling 33 2014 Chevrolet Corvettes in the U.S. because an internal short-circuit in the sensing and diagnostic module could disable frontal air bags, safety belt pretensioners and the Automatic Occupancy Sensing module. GM dealers will replace the module on the affected vehicles. GM is unaware of any crashes or injuries related to either of the small recalls.

NEWS: General Motors adds 1.7 million more vehicles to recall list
Detroit Free Press  @ May 20, 2014

MAY 2014 -- General Motors today issued a new series of four recalls, spanning 2.4 million U.S. vehicles for a variety of issues and doubling the charges against second quarter earnings from $200 million to $400 million.

The decision brings to 29 the number of GM recalls. Globally, the automaker has now recalled more than 15 million vehicles in 2014, the company’s all-time record and more than 14 million Toyota recalled in 2009 and 2010.

GM said it had not identified any deaths associated with the latest round of recalls, which are unrelated to an ignition switch defect that has resulted in several government investigations and a slew of lawsuits.

For one of the recalls, GM ordered dealers to stop selling the 2015 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV told 224 customers who took possession not to let anyone sit in the front-passenger seat until the problem is fixed. The large SUVs have an insufficiently heated plastic weld that attaches the passenger side air bag to the instrument panel assembly. The problem could cause the an airbag to not deploy correctly.

The new recalls are:

■ 1,075,102 units of the 2004-08 Chevrolet Malibu and the 2005-08 Pontiac G6 because of a shift cable that could deteriorate, causing the driver to shift into unexpected gears. The company said the issue has been connected to 18 crashes and one injury. The company said the Malibu and G6 recall was related to an issue that resulted in an April 29 recall of some 2007-08 Saturn Aura sedans.

■ The 2009-14 Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia full-size crossovers and 2009-10 Saturn Outlooks, reflecting 1,339,355 vehicles, to fix a front safety belt that could wear out and break over time. The crossovers are made in Lansing area plants.

■ 1,402 2015 Cadillac Escalades and Escalade ESVs (as described above).

■ 58 heavy-duty 2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra fullsize pickups “because retention clips attaching the generator fuse block to the vehicle body can become loose and lead to a potential fire.”


NEWS: General Motors adds 1.7 million more vehicles to recall list
Detroit Free Press  @ May 14, 2014

MAY 2014 -- The number of General Motors vehicles recalled in 2014 topped 10 million today after the automaker issued five new recalls affecting more than 2.7 million U.S. vehicles. The new issues were collectively blamed for as many as 17 crashes and no deaths.

The largest recall in today’s batch was for 2.44 million cars that could have brake lights malfunction due to corrosion of a wiring harness through micro-vibration.

The issue affects 2004-2012 Chevrolet Malibu, 2004-2007 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx, 2005-2010 Pontiac G6 and 2007-2010 Saturn Auras. GM said it was aware of “several hundred” complaints connected to the problem, as well as 13 crashes causing two injuries and no fatalities.

The company also recalled:

■477 units of the 2014-15 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks, and a few of the brand new 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe SUV to fix a for a tie-rod defect that could lead to a crash. With this condition, the tie rod can separate from the steering rack and a crash could occur without prior warning. The company is asking owners of these new vehicles to have them taken by flatbed to their dealer, where the inner tie rods will be inspected for correct torque, and, if necessary, the steering gear will be replaced.

■140,067 Chevrolet Malibus with 2.5-liter engines from the 2014 model year for an software issue that could cause the vehicles’ hydraulic brake boost system to be disabled, making it more difficult to stop the vehicle. The company said it was aware of four crashes but they may not be connected to the defect.

■111,889 Chevrolet Corvettes from the 2005-07 model years that could lose low-beam headlamps after the automaker received several hundred complaints. The company said 2008-13 model-year Corvettes would also be fixed. The issue has not been blamed for any crashes, injuries or deaths.

■ 19,225 Cadillac CTS 2013-14 models for windshield wiper failures.

■ 8,208  Chevrolet Malibu and Buick Lacrosse 2014 Models for brakes.

In the affected vehicles, increased resistance in the Body Control Module (BCM) connection may result in voltage fluctuations in the Brake Apply Sensor (BAS) circuit. These fluctuations can cause one or more of these conditions: the brake lights to illuminate without the brake pedal being pushed; the brake lights to not illuminate when the pedal is pushed; difficulty disengaging the cruise control; moving the gear shifter out of the 'PARK' position without pushing the brake; and disablement of crash avoidance features such as traction control, electronic stability control, and panic braking assist features. Any of the above failure conditions increases the risk of a crash. GM will notify owners, and dealers will attach the wiring harness to the BCM with a spacer, apply dielectric lubricant to both the BCM and harness connector and the BAS and harness connector, and will relearn the brake pedal home position, free of charge.

NEWS: General Motors adds 1.7 million more vehicles to recall list
Detroit Free Press  @ March 29, 2014

MARCH 2014 -- General Motors is expanding its ignition switch recall by nearly a million cars and recalling about 680,000 new vehicles for unrelated defects, reflecting a compounding series of quality problems that threaten to distract consumers.

The automaker on Friday added 970,700 vehicles to its ignition switch recall — bringing the total number to more than 2.5 million — after acknowledging that 5,000 small cars in the 2008 through 2011 model years may have had good switches replaced with bad ones.

The ignition switch recall — which previously covered 1.6 million small cars from the 2003 through 2007 model years — now includes all versions of the Chevrolet HHR, Chevrolet Cobalt, Saturn Sky, Saturn Ion, Pontiac Solstice and Pontiac G5.

All of those vehicles were made through 2010, except the HHR, which was also made in 2011. The expanded recall affects 824,000 vehicles in the U.S., 132,000 in Canada, 5,700 in Mexico and 9,000 in the rest of the world.

Separately, the company announced late Friday that it is recalling 490,200 pickup trucks and SUVs made within the last year and is recalling about 190,000 units of the Chevrolet Cruze sedan from the 2013 and 2014 model years.....

All of its 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 pickup trucks — its best-selling line of vehicles — as well as brand-new 2015 Chevrolet Suburban, Chevy Tahoe, GMC Yukon and Yukon XL SUVs with 6-speed transmissions.

The truck and SUV recall, which covers 490,200 units in the U.S., is aimed at fixing a “transmission oil cooler line that is not securely seated in its fitting,” GM said in a statement. The situation has created at least three “incidents” with no injuries, GM said.

“If the line is not securely seated and transmission oil leaks from the fitting, the oil could contact a hot surface and result in a vehicle fire,” GM said.

The 2013 and 2014 Cruze with 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline engines, accounting for about one-third of dealer inventory for the compact sedan. The company said the vehicles need new right-front axle half shafts that “can fracture and separate without warning.”

GM said the Cruze defect has affected at least several dozen vehicles, according to its own warranty data, but that it is not aware of any related crashes or injuries.

NEWS: Cadillac recalls ELR plug-in coupe
Detroit Free Press  @ March 29, 2014

MARCH 2014 -- As General Motors reels from its ignition switch recalls, it also announced a tiny recall this past week on one of the super high-tech cars that it has been advertising heavily lately.

It's the 2014 Cadillac ELR, a plug-in electric luxury coupe. The recall covers those cars not equipped with adaptive cruise control and manufactured between Sept. 26, 2013, and Feb. 14, 2014.

In those cars, the electronic stability control system software may inhibit certain diagnostics, preventing the system from alerting the driver that the system is partially or fully disabled. If the driver is not alerted to an stability-control malfunction, he or she may continue driving with a disabled system. The result could be a crash.

The solution sounds fairly straight-forward. GM will recalibrate the electronic brake control module for free. Notices go out April 17.

NEWS: GM recalls another 1.8 million vehicles amid safety probe
Yahoo News  @ March 17, 2014

MARCH 2014 -- General Motors announced its second massive recall in two months on Monday as it works to contain a growing scandal over the safety of its vehicles.

The latest recall of nearly 1.8 million vehicles linked to three new problems comes as a result of an internal probe into why it took the largest US automaker so long to acknowledge a deadly ignition defect.

Monday's recall covered three different defects unrelated to the ignition problems, none tied to reports of accidents or injuries, GM said.

The bulk of the vehicles recalled Monday -- more than 1.5 million -- were sold in the United States. Some 97,000 were sold in Canada and the remainder were sold in other markets around the world.

Of the vehicles recalled Monday, some 1.3 million were due to a defective service air bag warning light.

The defect could prevent air bags and seat belts from deploying during a crash.

That recall affects Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia models from the 2008-2013 model years, Chevrolet Traverse from the 2009-2013 model years, and Saturn Outlook from the 2008-2010 model years.

A failure to comply with a head impact requirement for unrestrained occupants led to the recall of 355,000 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana from the 2009-2014 model years.

A problem with a brake booster pump which has been linked to two engine fires in unsold vehicles at dealerships led to the recall of 66,000 Cadillac XTS full-size sedan from the 2013 and 2014 model years.

MARCH 2014 -- General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2014 Buick Regal, LaCrosse, Verano, and Enclave, and Chevrolet Impala, Malibu, Cruze, and Traverse, and GMC Acadia vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions. In the affected vehicles, the transmission shift cable adjuster may disengage from the transmission shift lever. As such, these vehicles do not conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 102, "Transmission Shift Lever Sequence, Starter Interlock, and Transmission Braking Effect." They also fail to conform to FMVSS number 114, "Theft Protection and Rollaway Prevention." If a vehicle's shift cable disengages from the transmission shift lever, a driver may be unable to shift gear positions and the indicated shift position may not represent the gear position the vehicle is in. Should a disengagement occur while the vehicle is being driven, when the driver goes to stop and park the vehicle, the driver may be able to shift the lever to the "PARK" position, but the vehicle transmission may not be in the "PARK" gear position. If the vehicle is not in the "PARK" position there is a risk the vehicle will roll away as the driver and other occupants exit the vehicle or anytime thereafter. A vehicle rollaway increases the risk of injury to exiting occupants and bystanders. General Motors will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace any affected transmission shift cable adjusters, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in late March 2014.

Detroit News @ January 10, 2014

JANUARY 2014 -- General Motors Co. said Friday it will recall 370,000 full-size pickup trucks for fire risks after eight reported fires — and the automaker is urging owners not to leave trucks unattended while idling.

The Detroit automaker said it will recall the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra to reprogram software that could lead to overheating of exhaust components, potentially causing engine compartment fires.

GM is contacting customers to alert them of the potential issue, which often is signaled by a continuous yellow “check engine light” and an “engine power reduced” message in the driver information center. GM has confirmed eight fires from this condition, “three of which were on customer owned vehicles, but no injuries. All occurred in areas with very cold weather.”

Recall letters will be mailed Jan. 16, but customers can contact dealers for appointments beginning early next week., GM said The repair will take about 20 minutes. Until then, customers are urged to avoid leaving their trucks to idle unattended.

GM told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Friday it would recall about 303,000 trucks with 4.3-liter V-6 and 5.3-liter V-8 engines in the U.S. Approximately 67,000 additional trucks that were exported and sold in Canada and Mexico also are being recalled. Trucks with 6.2-liter V-8 engines are not part of the recall.
