Cadillac Escalade Recalls

Ignition Switch

The ignition switch actuator can bind causing the ignition switch to stick in the "start" position. If this were to occur the actuator can unexpectedly release, cause the ignition switch to snap back into the "Accessory" position. This would cause the engine to turn off with an associated loss of brake and steering power assist. If these conditions were to lead to a crash the airbags may not deploy as expected. Dealers will inspect and replace the ignition lock housing as necessary to correct this concern.

Passenger Frontal Air Bag May Not Deploy Properly

The instrument panel top cover on the passenger frontal air bag may have been manufactured using an incorrect spacer fabric, resulting in the air bag not deploying properly. Dealers will replace the instrument panel top cover free of charge to resolve the concern.

Engine Stalls From Electrical Module Short

The chassis electrical module can short due to internal contamination. This can result in the vehicle stalling. Dealers will replace the chassis electronic module free of charge to resolve the concern.
