May 19, 2014 NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 14V261000

Daytime Running Light Module Overheating

If the DRL module melts due to the heat generation, it could cause a vehicle fire.

 

NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V261

Manufacturer General Motors LLC

Components EXTERIOR LIGHTING

Potential Number of Units Affected 218,000

 

Summary

General Motors is recalling certain model year 2004-2008 Chevrolet Aveo vehicles equipped with daytime running lights (DRL). In the affected vehicles, there may be heat generated within the DRL module located in the center console in the instrument panel, which could melt the DRL module.

 

Remedy

GM will notify owners, and dealers will install a revised DRL module, inspect the wiring connector for heat damage, and clean the DRL circuit grounds. Owners were sent interim notices on August 14, 2014. The recall began on February 6, 2015. Owners may contact General Motors customer service at 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet). General Motors recall number for this campaign is 14236.

 

Notes

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.

Condition

General Motors has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in all 2004-2008 model year Chevrolet Aveo, 2004-2006 Chevrolet Epica (Canada), 2004-2007 Chevrolet Optra (Canada) and 2005-2008 Pontiac Wave/G3 (Canada). Some of these vehicles have a condition in which heat generated within the headlamp switch, which is located on the left side of the steering column, can deform a plastic actuator within the switch intended to lift the headlamp switch contacts. As this actuator deforms, the headlamp switch contacts can close. If carbon has formed on the headlamp switch contacts, it could cause a resistive short and melt the switch, which could cause a fire.

In addition, a metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor (MOSFET) within the DRL module, which is located under the instrument panel, may operate in an unintended state due to an external cause. While in this state, if the over temperature protection circuit and heat sinking capability of the DRL module do not adequately protect the DRL module, the DRL module could melt and cause a fire.

 

Correction

Dealers are to install a revised DRL module, inspect wiring connectors for heat damage and clean DRL circuit grounds. Note: Optra model vehicles also receive a new multifunction signal switch and jumper relay kit.
