2004 - 2005 Cadillac XLR: Campaign: Exterior Lighting - Turn Signal Malfunction

MAKE/MODELS: MODEL/BUILD YEARS:
Cadillac / XLR 2004 - 2005

MANUFACTURER: General Motors Corp.
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID NUMBER: 06V263000 MFG'S REPORT DATE: July 12, 2006

COMPONENT: Exterior Lighting: Turn Signal
POTENTIAL NUMBER OF UNITS AFFECTED: 7689

SUMMARY:
On certain passenger vehicles, the Daylight Running Lights (DRL), turn signal, and parking lamps use the same bulb. The bulb may become damaged from vibration within a loose fitting socket or air entering the bulb due to an inadequate seal. Both of these conditions will cause the bulb to burn out prematurely.

CONSEQUENCE:
If this were to occur, the driver would notice that the arrow in the instrument panel would flash faster than normal when the turn signal is activated. The loss of the DRL and turn signals could fail to warn others of the driver's presence or intentions and could lead to a vehicle crash.

REMEDY:
Dealers will replace the socket and bulb in both lamps free of charge. The recall began on July 31, 2006. Owners may contact Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339.

NOTES:
General Motors Recall No. 06013. Customers may also contact The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
