A mixture of snow/water and salt can seep through the interior carpet on the drivers side resulting in an electrical short in a wiring harness connector under the carpet. If left unchecked this could lead to a fire. Dealers will inspect the kick panel wiring harness connector and if necessary install a new harness connector and waterproof seal.
All Car Recalls
In certain vehicles the hood release cable may have been installed incorrectly, as a result the latch may not fully engage, leaving the secondary latch in the open position with the hood is closed. If the primary hood latch is released and the secondary latch fails while driving the hood could open unexpectedly, blocking the driver's vision and increasing the risk of a crash. To correct this concern dealers will modify the angle of the hood release mechanism to provide additional length to the release cable.
The fuel rail is a tube that carries fuel to the fuel injectors. A sealing cap on the fuel rail may leak, increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the affected fuel rail to correct this concern.
The fuel injection system uses tubes called fuel rails to get the fuel to the fuel injectors. These fuel rails can leak. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the affected fuel rails to correct this concern.
The fuel rail is a tube that carries fuel to the fuel injectors. The fuel rail may leak, increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the affected fuel rail and corresponding seals to correct this concern.
An electrical resistor is contained in the cooling fan electrical control system. This resistor can overheat and/or melt, increasing the chance of an electrical fire. Dealers will replace the cooling fan resistor and multi-fuse unit. Vehicles with a 1,8L engine will also have the engine control module software updated.
Sensors on board the vehicle detect the presence of a seated passenger and may not be calibrated correctly. These sensors determine whether the vehicle's airbag systems should be deployed in the event of a crash and may turn them off, causing risk of injury to a passenger. Dealers will recalibrate the vehicle's passenger sensors free of charge.
Vehicles fitted with a trailer lighting module are being recalled because the module's software may falsely detect an electrical short in the system, shutting power off to the trailers electrical system. Signals, braking and safety lamps on the trailer may turn off automatically, resulting in unsafe towing conditions. Dealers will replace the trailer light module with a new unit and corrected software, free of charge.
The vehicle's front hubs were assembled with too little torque on fasteners, resulting in a loose assembly that does not attach the brakes correctly. Faulty braking may result, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will tighten loose fasteners to correct specification to correct this concern.
The Push-to Start/Stop button may be pushed inadvertently causing the engine and vehicle to turn off unexpectedly and the vehicle to stop, increasing the risk of a crash. If a crash were to occur with the vehicle off the airbags and seatbelt restraints may not function as intended, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will relocate the Push-to Start/Stop button and reprogram the Powertrain Control Module to correct this concern.
Because of a manufacturing issue, the fuel pump may fail prematurely due to improper nickel plating of certain internal components. If the fuel pump were to fail the engine would stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the fuel pump on affected models to correct this concern.
In certain states, where salt is used to de-ice the roads, corrosion can occur at the four-way joint connector of the hydraulic braking system leading to a brake fluid leak. This fluid loss can result in longer than expected stopping distance, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will apply an anti-corrosion wax to the four-way joint connector area to correct this concern. Some vehicles previously recalled of this concern may not have been repaired correctly. In addition, owners of vehicles outside of the affected states may request this recall be performed. Please contact your dealer to determine exactly how this recall affects your vehicle.
Vehicles with accessories (running boards, etc.) installed by SET are being recalled due to incorrect installation. Fasteners used to attach these accessories were installed with incorrect torque, and may detach resulting in unsafe driving conditions.
The ignition switch actuator can bind causing the ignition switch to stick in the "start" position. If this were to occur the actuator can unexpectedly release, cause the ignition switch to snap back into the "Accessory" position. This would cause the engine to turn off with an associated loss of brake and steering power assist. If these conditions were to lead to a crash the airbags may not deploy as expected. Dealers will inspect and replace the ignition lock housing as necessary to correct this concern.
In the event of a crash where the side curtain airbags are deployed a headliner plate can detach, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will correct this concern by adding industrial adhesive strips to secure the headliner plates.
