General Motors (GM) is recalling certain model year 2006 Chevrolet
Trailblazer EXT and GMC Envoy XL and 2006-2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer,
GMC Envoy, Buick Rainier, SAAB 9-7x, and Isuzu Ascender vehicles.
Fluid may enter the driver's door module, causing corrosion that could
result in a short in the circuit board. A short may cause the power
door lock and power window switches to function intermittently or
become inoperative. The short may also cause overheating, which could
melt components of the door module, producing odor, smoke, or a fire.
A short in the circuit board could lead to a fire, increasing the risk
of personal injury. A fire could occur even while the vehicle is not
in use. As a precaution, owners are advised to park outside until the
remedy has been made.
Owners will be contacted and dealers will test the driver's door
module. If the module is functioning properly, a protective coating
will be applied. If the module is not functioning properly, it will be
replaced. These repairs will be done free of charge. GM will notify
Buick, Chevrolet, and GMC owners, Isuzu and Saab will contact their
respective owners. The recall is expected to begin July 24, 2013.
Buick owners may contact the owner center at 1-800-521-7300, Chevrolet
owners at 1-866-694-6546, GMC owners at 1-866-996-9463, Isuzu owners
