A wiring problem with the fuel pump control system may shut down fuel flow to the engine, resulting in a stalled vehicle, as well as power steering and power braking system failure. Loss of engine power, braking and steering assist can result in an unsafe driving condition that could result in a crash. Dealers will inspect and replace wiring that controls the fuel pump to correct this concern.
A software problem turns off the front parking lights (side lamps) after approximately 5 minutes in affected vehicles. These are an important part of keeping others aware of a driver's presence, and vehicle safety requires they remain lit while in use. Dealers will update software that controls the parking lights to correct this concern.
The brake system uses fluid in hydraulic lines to operate the brake on each individual wheel. These vehicles are being recalled because junctions of these fluid lines could develop leaks. Loss of brake fluid can reduce braking efficiency, increasing the risk of a crash or personal injury. Dealers will inspect the affected brake line junctions and tighten them as necessary to correct this concern.
Passenger airbags in many late model vehicles are designed not to deploy if a child or child seat occupies the front passenger seat. Because of a wiring issue in the passenger front seat, the passenger airbag could deploy when it should not. Unintended deployment of the airbag in the event of a crash would increase the risk of injury to the seat occupant. Dealers will repair the seat wiring to correct this concern.
272 vehicles are being recalled because fasteners may have been installed incorrectly which secure the power steering pump pulley and accessory drive belt to the engine, as well as the positive cable on the alternator. Failure of these to stay secure can cause a loss of vehicle control, unsafe driving conditions and possibly result in fire.
All late model vehicles are equipped with a tire pressure information label. These vehicles are being recalled because "none" may be indicated for the recommended spare tire pressure. As a result the spare tire may not be properly inflated and ready to use if the need arises. Dealers will inspect the affected vehicles and attach a new tire pressure label as necessary to correct this concern.
A power steering hose may collapse and restrict fluid flow, causing loss of power steering assist. Dealers will replace the hose free of charge to resolve the concern.
The software for the restraints control module (RCM) may be faulty. This could cause parts of the restraint system to not work as designed. Dealers will upload new software for the RCM free of charge to resolve the problem.
The right rear brake line may rub on the rear subframe bracket and develop a fluid leak. Dealers will inspect the brake line for signs of wear, make necessary bracket and line adjustments, and replace any lines found wearing free of charge to resolve the problem.
297 vehicles are being recalled because one or both rear tow adjustment links may come loose from the rear sub-frame. These adjustment links are used to help control rear wheel alignment. If a tow link were to come loose a loss of directional control could result, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the nut and washer assembly on the rear toe links to correct this concern.
