WASHINGTON - The government is reviewing potential turn signal malfunctions in three General Motors Co. models - the 2002 Chevrolet Malibu, Oldsmobile Alero and Pontiac Grand Am.

In the GM case, the government said it was reviewing nearly 400,000 passenger cars.

NHTSA said it has received 42 complaints about a turn signal malfunction that leads to flickering or total failure of the turn signal lights and the indicator on the instrument panel.

In 2003, GM conducted a recall of 2000-2001 models of the Malibu, Alero, and Grand Am to replace defective hazard switches that caused the turn signals and hazard lamps to fail. GM said then that the hazard switch caused the problem.

In December 2004, GM said it would replace the hazard switch at no cost for 1999-2000 model year vehicles of the Alero, Grand Am and Malibu sedans under 10 years or 150,000 miles.
