GM recalls 1.5 million vehicles


Recommended Posts

Reading thru the WSJ, I find GM has to recall 1.5 million vehicles because the windshield wiper fluid heater can light fires. The fix is to disconnect it.

Or get a new car by lighting yours on fire and blaming GM! :banannadance:

General Motors has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain 2006-2008 model year Buick Lucerne; Cadillac DTS; HUMMER H2 vehicles; 2007-2008 model year Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Escalade EXT; Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe; GMC Acadia, Sierra, Yukon, Yukon XL; Saturn OUTLOOK vehicles; and 2008 model year Buick Enclave vehicles equipped with a heated washer fluid system. A short circuit on the printed circuit board for the washer fluid heater may overheat the control-circuit ground wire. This may cause other electrical malfunctions, create an odor similar to Cahds, or cause smoke. In rare cases, it may cause a fire.


Dealers are to install a wire harness with an in-line fuse.

If you have an 08 how would you know if they fixed it at the dealership or not?

run the vin through Ed, the records will show if this recall was completed, or just stop by your local dealership and ask them about it.
