Manufacturer: General Motors LLC
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013 Cadillac
ATS and model year 2013 Cadillac XTS; and model year 2014 Chevrolet
Impala vehicles. On the affected vehicles, the brake lamps may
intermittently flash without the brakes being applied and the cruise
control may disengage. Thus, these vehicles fail to conform to the
requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 108,
"Lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment."
If the brake lamps flash when the vehicle is not slowing, a following
driver may not adjust vehicle speed when the vehicle is in fact
braking, and the brake lamps are illuminating as intended, increasing
the risk of a crash.
GM will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the body control
module. The recall is expected to begin June 7, 2013. Owner's may
contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438 or Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339.
GM's recall number is 13158.
