Buick LaCrosse Recalls
During certain driving conditions, the air bag sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) may activate a testing mode. If a crash were to occur during this mode, the frontal airbags and seat belt pretensioners would not deploy, increasing risk of injury to driver and front passengers.
The air bag inflators for the front seat mounted side air bags may rupture, spreading metallic fragments to strike occupants. This could cause serious injury or death.
The headlights and daytime running lamps may fail to operate, causing a lack of visibility for the driver, as well as to oncoming vehicles.
The headlights and daytime running lights may stop functioning.
One or both of the front seats may fall to their lowest vertical position without warning.
The weight on the key ring, combined with a jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine.
Wiring in the drivers door may fail, resulting in failure of the chime that sounds when the door is opened with the key in the ignition. Also, the module that shuts off power to accessories may not function properly, allowing vehicle windows to continue to function unintentionally.
Braking performance may be reduced unexpectedly.
The adjuster that adjusts the position of the shifter cable may fail, preventing operation of the shifter and causing the shift indicator to be inaccurate.
On vehicles equipped with eAssist, the engine may not start and/or could stall while driving. Additionally, a burning smell and/or fire could develop in the trunk.
