2004 Cadillac XLR Recalls

Turn Signal and Daytime Running Light May Burn Out Prematurely

The daytime running lights (DRL), turn signal, and parking lamps all share the same light bulb, which may burn out prematurely from vibration in a loose socket or from air entering the bulb. If this were to occur, awareness of the driver's presence would be reduced and driver's intentions may not be known, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the socket and bulb in both lamps free of charge. The recall began July 31, 2006. The GM recall number is 06013.

The Engine May Not Return to Idle in Very Cold Climates

In temperatures between -22 and -40 degrees F, and if one of the accelerator pedal return springs breaks, the engine may not return to idle within three seconds as required. If this were to happen, more braking effort may be needed to stop the vehicle. Dealers will replace the accelerator pedal assembly. The recall began March 8, 2005. The GM recall number is 05018.

Rear Brake Lines May Be Too Close to the Exhaust

On certain vehicles, the rear brake lines may be close, or come into contact with the exhaust manifold. This could heat the lines and boil the brake fluid; the lines could also wear from contact. If the brake fluid boils, or leaks, effectiveness of the rear brakes would be reduced and a crash could occur.

Dealers will inspect the left engine exhaust manifold clip for alignment and placement on the body mounted stud. If it's correct, they will reposition the clip on the brake lines and reinstall the clip on the stud. Dealers will ensure that both rear brake lines have the proper clearance to the left exhaust pipe and the machining tab on the rear differential housing will be removed. The brake lines in the affected areas will be inspected for damage and will be replaced if there are signs of wear-through on the nylon overcoating. The recall began January 18, 2005. The GM recall number is 04086.
