Recall: No. 1 of 5
Recall Ref: R/2004/153
Exact Model:
Description: If the voltage is low the fuel shut off may not occur
Build Date:
Numbers: 5600
Defect: The possibility exists that an interruption of, or low voltage supply to, the power train module, may allow the vehicle to be accelerated with the steering column lock still engaged. Additionally, the column lock may, under certain circumstances remain locked when the ignition key is in the on position thus preventing the steering wheel from being turned.
Action: Likely to be affected vehicles will be recalled at which time the PCM will be reprogrammed. At the same time the steering lock will be checked for correct tolerance and replaced if necessary.
Launch Date: 09 November 2004
Recall: No. 2 of 5
Recall Ref: R/2004/185
Exact Model:
Description: Possibility that the ECL will not perform normally
Build Date:
Numbers: 143
Defect: The vehicle uses an Electronic Column Lock (ECL) to prevent the steering wheel being turned when the ignition key is removed. It has been identified that the following two conditions could prevent the correct operation of the steering lock. 1. If the power-train control module suffers low voltage or an interruption, whilst the engine is being cranked, the vehicle can be driven with the steering locked. 2. During quick cranking, the ECL lock pins may not fully withdraw, which will result in either a noise or rattle, or if there is insufficient clearance, the steering wheel will not turn. If one of these conditions occurs, directional control will be affected.
Launch Date: 26 November 2004
Recall: No. 3 of 5
Recall Ref: R/2005/153
Exact Model:
Description: Power steering hose may fracture and leak fluid
VIN: 1G1YY24U255133110
Build Date:
Numbers: 1
Defect: The power steering hose is not manufactured to specification. Under extreme steering manoeuvres the hose may fracture and leak fluid. If this were to occur, power steering assistance would be lost and vehicles fitted with Hydro-boos power brakes, would lose power brake assistance. In addition, if the fluid were to spray onto a hot surface, this could result in an engine bay fire.
Action: Recall affected vehicles and replace hose with a quality assured item.
Launch Date: 14 December 2005
