2008 Cadillac Escalade EXT Recalls
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
The under hood module for the heated washer system may overheat and catch on fire.
The wiring to the washer system fluid heater may overheat. This can create a burning smell, smoke, and possibly a fire under the hood.
