Recall 16V844000

Windows Close Automatically When Using Key Fob Or Closing Convertible Roof

Recall Details

The convertible roof control module may be incorrect for the vehicle, and may allow the windows to automatically close when closing the roof, or when activated remotely by a key fob. This could cause occupant injury. Dealers will replace the convertible roof control module free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The power windows may close automatically when closing the convertible roof, or when remotely using the key fob (remote control). This could cause the windows to close when not expected by passengers inside the vehicle, and could result in injury.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Buick must be performed by a General Motors dealership. General Motors will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in December, 2016. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local General Motors dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with. The General Motors recall number is 16126.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2016 Buick Cascada vehicles manufactured December 2, 2015, to February 24, 2016. The affected vehicles may have had the original convertible roof control module (CRCM) replaced with an incorrect CRCM, that allows the windows to close automatically when the roof is closed and can allow the windows to be closed remotely using the key fob. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 118, "Power-Operated Window Systems."
Consequence
If the windows close automatically or can be closed remotely, the unexpected closure can increase the risk of injury to the passengers.
Remedy
GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the CRCM with correct module, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 9, 2016. Owners may contact Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300. GM's number for this recall is 16126.
Notify
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
