2001 Cadillac DeVille ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION NHTSA Campaign #14V355000
Summary: This defect can affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2005-2009 Buick LaCrosse, 2006-2011 Buick Lucerne, 2000-2005 Cadillac DeVille, 2006-2011 Cadillac DTS, 2006-2014 Chevrolet Impala, and 2006-2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the weight on the key ring and road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine.
Consequence: If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy if the vehicle is involved in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Additionally, a key knocked out of the run position will cause loss of engine power, power steering, and power braking, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
Actions: GM will notify owners, and dealers will install two key rings and an insert in the key slot or a cover over the key head on all ignition keys, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact General Motors customer service at 1-800-521-7300 (Buick), 1-800-458-8006 (Cadillac), and 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet). GM's number for this recall is 14299. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #14V355000 »
2001 Cadillac DeVille SEAT BELTS:FRONT:RETRACTOR NHTSA Campaign #02V227000
Summary: Certain passenger vehicles contain driver and front passenger lap and/or shoulder belt retractors that may not remain locked up as designed during a crash in which the belt pretensioners deploy.
Consequence: In such a crash, this could result in an increase in injury for that occupant.
Actions: Dealers will install a retainer kit in the driver and passenger safety belt pretensioner. Owner notification began January 31, 2003. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Cadillac at 1-800-458-8006. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #02V227000 »
2001 Cadillac DeVille STRUCTURE:BODY NHTSA Campaign #01V172000
Summary: Vehicle description: Certain sedans, hearse, and limousine vehicles fail to comply with requirements of FMVSS no. 201, "occupant protection in interior impact." These vehicles have sunvisor center supports with certain radii less than the 3.2mm required by the standard.
Consequence: Radii less than 3.2mm can increase the possibility of certain types of injuries, like lacerations, if an occupant contacts the support during a crash.
Actions: Dealers will replace the sunvisor center supports with redesigned supports. Owner notification began November 28, 2001. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Cadillac at 1-800-458-8006. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #01V172000 »
2001 Cadillac DeVille SEAT BELTS:FRONT:BUCKLE ASSEMBLY NHTSA Campaign #00V347000
Summary: Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles, hearse, and limousines. Some of these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of FMVSS no. 209, "seat belt assemblies." These vehicles have seat belts that may not meet the 30-pound push button release effort requirement of the standard.
Consequence: High release efforts could make it more difficult for a crash victim to release the belt and exit the vehicle.
Actions: Dealers will inspect the seat belts and, if necessary, modify the latch plates or replace the retractor. Dealers will also add "snap on" latch clips to eliminate the potential of inverted latch plate insertion. Owner notification is being conducted in phases. The first phase began May 29, 2001, and the second phase began July 6, 2001. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Cadillac at 1-800-458-8006.
