2006 Buick Lacrosse. Consumer writes in regards to head lamp driver module recall notice. The consumer stated while driving, the windshield wipers started operating on their own. The consumer stopped and inspected the vehicle and discovered smoke coming from the fuse box. He disconnected the battery cable, but smoke was still coming out. He removed the cover from the fuse box and a part of the fuse box had melted and smoke continued to come out but after a minute it stopped. The wipers extended over the windshield and would not work even when the battery was re-connected later. The fuse box and wiring harness had to be replaced.

I had to be to work by 6:00 am on the date of the incident. I entered my vehicle at 5:30 to leave and discovered upon ignition that the low beam headlamps were out of service. After checking the fuses under the hood and finding no issues, I was forced to make my 20 minute/9 mile drive using the high beams for visibility (with no daylight). The low beam headlamps remain out of service. (note: Low beam bulbs were replaced approximately two months ago)

The contact owns a 2006 Buick Lacrosse. The contact stated that the headlights shorted intermittently for the low beams and the contact had to apply the high beams as an interim repair. As the failure progressed, the low beams would illuminate and then shorted with no warning. Months later, the low beams failed to work entirely. The vehicle was taken to the authorized dealer who stated that the part was not available to repair according to NHTSA campaign number: 14V755000 (exterior lighting). The contact was also waiting for the part to become available to perform the repair for NHTSA campaign number: 14V355000 (electrical system). The manufacturer was notified of the failure and was unable to provide a reasonable timeframe to schedule the two recall repairs. The failure mileage was unavailable.

Low beam headlights go out, sometimes they will not come back on until car ignition is turned off and back on sometimes they dont come back on at all, very dangerous, GM has a recall but they say my VIN number is not covered, I have talked to local dealer as well as General Motors concerning this issue with no positive response. It appears this issue will be just like the key switch issue, people will have to die before anything is done
