Transport Canada issues latest recalls
Ottawa, Ontario – Transport Canada has released its latest recalls, which may affect some Mercedes-Benz, Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Infiniti vehicles.
Vehicles affected: 49
On certain vehicles, the accelerator pedal might not have been fully fastened to its mounting studs during vehicle assembly. The mounting studs will maintain the position of the accelerator, but over time may not maintain a consistent position, which could make it more difficult to operate the accelerator. Dealers will inspect the pedal assembly and, if required, install two nuts.
Vehicles affected: 7,400
On certain vehicles, the anti-lock brake system (ABS) control module software may cause the rear brakes to lock up during certain braking conditions. Dealers will reprogram the ABS electronic control unit.
Vehicles affected: 1,400
On certain vehicles, the software program in the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) module may cause the windshield defrosting and defogging functions to become inoperative. Dealers will reprogram the HVAC module.
Vehicles affected: 7,484
On certain vehicles, the stop, tail and turn signal lamp functions may be too dim when viewed at certain angles. Dealers will replace the rear combination lamps.
