Report Date: September 24, 2012 at 11:22 AM NHTSA Campaign ID number: 12V454000
Vehicle Make / Model: Model Year(s): CHEVROLET / SONIC 2013
Manufacturer: General Motors LLC Mfr's Report Date: SEP 17, 2012
Component: EXTERIOR LIGHTING:TURN SIGNAL Potential Number of Units Affected: 4,716
Summary: General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013 Chevrolet Sonic vehicles manufactured from May 29, 2012, through August 29, 2012. When a turn signal lamp fails to operate, the Body Control Module (BCM) in these vehicles does not detect this condition and will not indicate the condition to the driver. Thus, These vehicles fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."
Consequence: If the driver is not aware that the turn signal is not functioning and does not have the light repaired, other drivers may not be alerted that the vehicle is turning, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: GM will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the BCM and the vehicle's key fobs, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on October 3, 2012. Owners may contact the Chevrolet owner center at 1-866-694-6546.
