General Motors is recalling some 250,000 mid-size SUVs from the Chevrolet, GMC, Buick, Isuzu, and Saab brands for driver’s door electrical short circuits, Automobilemag.com reports. Meanwhile, Suzuki is recalling about 100,000 Forenza and Reno vehicles for wiring issues.
GM’s recall includes the 2006-2007 models of the Chevrolet Trailblazer, GMC Envoy, Buick Rainier, Isuzu Ascender, and Saab 9-7X. GM says that, in colder locations where corrosion is high, water can get into the driver’s door switch panel and short it out.This could result in inoperable power locks or windows or cause the panel to overheat, resulting in smoke or a small electrical fire.
GM is still formulating its plan to contact owners and fix the problem.
Suzuki is recalling the 2004-2006 Forenza and the 2005-2006 Reno for headlamps that can shut off or fail completely. Suzuki says that bad wiring contact can melt other wires leading to the headlamps. The company will start the recall in September and attach heat shrink crimps to headlamp wires.
