Recall applies to bi-fuel optioned Cavalier only. Federal standards require at least two levels of instrumentation illumination and the lights are stuck at the full level, making it difficult to see objects outside of the vehicle at night. Dealers will replace the fuel type indicator switch, which includes the instrumentation illumination control.
