CADILLAC
Model(s):
ELDORADO, SEVILLE
Year(s):
1996
Manufacturer:
GENERAL MOTORS CORP.
NHTSA ID:
95V224000
Recall Date:
n/a
Units Affected:
1,408

Affected Component: Equipment:electrical.

Summary: The analog instrument panel cluster on these vehicles could have an internal short circuit disrupting the pass key system, causing failure of the instrument panel gauges and tell-tales, and a possible no-start condition. This does not conform to the requirements of fmvss no. 101, "controls and displays;" no. 108, "lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment;" and no. 208, "occupant crash protection. ".

Conequence: Consequence of non-compliance: if the short circuit occurs while driving, the instrument panel cluster will go blank, causing loss of gauge function and all teel-tale indicators except for abs, sir, park brake and service engine soon. The loss of all tell-tales for seat belts, turn signals, high beam, hazard, oil pressure, coolant temperature, and others result in noncompliance with these safety standards. .

Remedy: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the instrument panel cluster. .

Notes: System: interior; instrument panel electronic message center; fmvss nos. 101, 108 and 208. Vehicle description: passenger vehicles. Note: owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact cadillac at 1-800-458-8006. Also contact the national highway traffic safety administration's auto safety hotline at 1-800-424-9393. .

Manufacturer:
GENERAL MOTORS CORP.

Recall Date:
March 4th, 2004
Units Affected:
483,477

Affected Component: Fuel system, gasoline:delivery:hoses, lines/piping, and fittings.

Summary: Some passenger vehicles equipped with 4. 0l v8 engines have a condition in which the nylon tubing used in the fuel rail construction may degrade and crack. Additionally, the 1995 model year uses a unique underhood fuel return line that may crack. Cracking of the fuel rail or return line tubing can result in a fuel leak into the engine compartment. .

Conequence: Fuel leakage, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire. .

Remedy: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the engine fuel rail with a new stainless steel fuel rail. Dealers will also install a revised chassis fuel return line. The recall began on june 2, 2004, for 1996-1997 oldsmobile aurora vehicles. Owners of 1995 cadillacs and 1996-1997 oldsmobile aurora were sent letters on august 6, 2004. Additional letters to owners will be forthcoming. Owners should contact oldsmobile at 1-800-630-6537. .
