The brake lights and rear turn signals may stop working.
Please contact your GM dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
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.
