2013 Cadillac Escalade RecallsEngine 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.
All late model vehicles are equipped with a "Shift interlock" system that prevents vehicles with and automatic transmission from being shifted out of the Park position under certain conditions. Some of these vehicles are being recalled because they may have been assembled with a broken park lock cable or a malformed steering column lock actuator gear. Failure of these components can allow the shifter to be moved out of the Park position with the ignition key removed or in the off position. This can cause the vehicle to roll away unexpectedly increasing the risk of injury or a crash. Dealers will inspect the recalled vehicles and replace the steering column as necessary.
