GM Recalls Certain 2000-2002 SUVs Due to Stop Lamp and Rear Hazard Lamp Failure

The multifunction switch may have a short circuit, which may cause the stop lamps and rear hazard lamps to fail. Stop lights that fail to operate may cause a crash. Dealers will replace the hazard switch carrier. (Note: This campaign is an expansion of a previous recall; see 01V364)

Turn Signals May Operate Like Hazard Flashers

The turn signals may operate like hazard flashers when intending to signal for a turn. The driver may not be able to clearly signal their intentions, increasing the risk of a crash.
