Certain vehicles are being recalled because of concerns with the brake lights and cruise control operation. The brake lights can come on when the brakes are not applied and/or the cruise control may disengage. These functions are controlled by the Body Control Module (BCM). Your GM dealer will reprogram the BCM to correct this concern.
Chevrolet Impala Recalls
On vehicles equipped with the "police" option package, one or both of the front lower control arms may fracture. A broken control arm can result in the loss of control of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace both front lower control arms to correct this concern. The General Motors recall number is 12104.
The upper power steering hose may be misrouted, causing it to be damaged from the heat of the catalytic converter. Power steering fluid may leak onto the catalytic converter, resulting in an engine compartment fire. Dealers will inspect the upper power steering hose routing and make the necessary repairs to correct this concern. The General Motors recall number is 11224.
General Motors is recalling 2009–2010 Chevrolet Impala models because the webbing on the front safety belt may not have been properly secured to the lap belt anchor pretensioner. This may cause the seat belt to function incorrectly and not restrain the occupant during a crash, which increases the risk of injury. Dealers will inspect the belts and reinstall the anchors, if necessary, free of charge.
General Motors is recalling 2009 Chevrolet Impala models because the passenger-side front air bag inflator could fracture at an inflator tube during a deployment. If this happens, pieces of the inflator tube could strike and injure vehicle occupants and prevent the air bag from fully deploying. Dealers will install a new passenger-side front air bag.
On some vehicles, the fuel tank may be missing the adhesive that bonds the barrier layer to the outer shell. This may allow fuel and/or fuel vapors to leak out between the layers, increasing the risk of fire. Dealers will inspect the serial numbers on the fuel tank and replace it if needed. The recall began November 13, 2006. The GM recall number is 06160.
The left front seat manual adjuster is not mounted in the proper location and could separate from its bracket in a crash. Dealers will inspect and replace the adjuster as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
General Motors is recalling 2004 Chevrolet Impala, Monte Carlo, and Pontiac Grand Prix models because they were produced with lower than specified torque on both front brake caliper to steering knuckle attachment bolts. If one or both bolts fracture, reduced braking and steering control could cause a crash. Dealers will tighten both bolts to the specified torque.
