General Motors is recalling 193,652 2006 and 2007 model year Chevrolet Trailblazer and GMC Envoy SUVs for a potential water leak in the driver-side door that could cause a short in the right-side electrical panel module. The recall also affects the Buick Rainier, Saab 9-7x
, and Isuzu Ascender SUVs.
Owners are advised to park their vehicles outdoors until the module can be inspected or replaced by a dealership, as the issue poses a potential fire hazard.
The driver-side door switch panel could malfunction if fluid leaks into the module. This could cause intermittent or non-operation of the power door lock and power window switches. An electrical short could result in odor, smoke, or fire.
GM will contact affected owners, and electrical modules will be inspected and a protective coating applied to properly functioning modules. Defective modules will be replaced. Chevrolet owners can call 866-694-6546, Buick owners can call 800-521-7300, GMC owners 866-996-9463, Isuzu 800-255-6727, and Saab 855-880-0808.
