Chevrolet Cavalier RecallsBrake Lights and Turn Signals May Not Work
The brake lights and rear turn signals may stop working due to insufficient contact between the socket and bulb. Inoperative tail lamps may not communicate the driver's intentions, increasing the risk of a crash. If both tail lamps become inoperative, the cruise control will not engage. Dealers will inspect the rear lamp bulb socket assemblies and apply grease or replace them if needed. The recall began January 18, 2005. The GM recall number 04083.
On 37 vehicles, the passenger-side rear safety belt may have been installed with an incorrect nut and bolt. In a severe crash, the upper seat belt anchorage may separate, reducing the effectiveness of the seat belt and increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will inspect the safety belt anchorage and install a new nut and bolt. The recall began August 23, 2004. The GM recall number is 04056.
