2014 Buick LaCrosse Recalled for a Corrosion Problem That Could Affect Circuits


Just the Facts:
  • GM is recalling 14,765 2014 Buick LaCrosse sedans because a wiring splice in the driver's door may corrode and break, leading to some vehicle functions turning on when the vehicle is off and the driver is not in the vehicle.
  • Dealers will inspect the driver door window motor harness and, if necessary, replace an electrical splice.
  • GM said it is unaware of any thefts, crashes, injuries or fatalities related to the problem.

DETROIT — GM is recalling 14,765 2014 Buick LaCrosse sedans because a wiring splice in the driver's door may corrode and break, leading to some vehicle functions turning on when the vehicle is off and the driver is not in the vehicle, the automaker said on Friday.

Dealers will inspect the driver door window motor harness and, if necessary, replace an electrical splice.

GM said it is unaware of any thefts, crashes, injuries or fatalities related to the problem.

"A wiring splice in the driver's door may corrode and break," GM said in a statement. "That may communicate incorrect information to circuits that control the door chime and allow passenger windows, rear windows and the sunroof to function when the vehicle is turned off and the driver is not in the vehicle."

In addition, a chime will not sound when the driver's door is opened if the key is in the ignition.

This recall is part of a larger GM recall of four vehicles announced by the automaker on Friday covering 581,367 vehicles.

No information about the new LaCrosse recall has been posted on the Web site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle recalls in the U.S.

Edmunds says: GM said in the case of the LaCrosse recall, customers will receive letters from GM letting them know when they can bring their vehicles into the dealership. Courtesy transportation will be provided "as needed," according to GM.
