Oxygen sensor failure may occur, resulting in the illumination of the Check Engine Light.



The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to an evaporative emission (EVAP) system fault. Our technicians tell us these EVAP system faults can be difficult to diagnose but it is not uncommon to find a failed charcoal canister or a loose or worn gas cap.

The driver's side power window master switch may lack enough proper lubricant to protect the sliding electrical contacts of the switch. This can cause a short circuit of the switch, leading to overheating and melting of the switch. Dealers will inspect the switches and apply lubricant to them if no abnormality is found. If a problem is found, the switch circuit board will be replaced. These inspections and repairs will be performed free of charge to resolve the concern.

The steering column assembly contains electrical connections for the driver's airbag, commonly called the "clock spring". This spiral cable assembly includes a Flexible Flat Cable (FFC). Due to the shape and location of the FFC's retainer, the FFC could become damaged when the steering wheel is turned. If the FFC is damaged, the driver's airbag could be deactivated. The failure of the driver's airbag to deploy when required increases the risk of injury to the driver. When the parts are available, dealers will replace the spiral cable assembly to correct this concern.

These vehicle were sold without the required load carrying captivity modification label. Dealers will mail the corrected label to vehicle owners. Owners have the option of requesting that the dealer install the label. This recall is expected to begin on May 27, 2010.
