Summary: Certain passenger vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 124, 'accelerator control systems.' If one of the two accelerator pedal return springs fails and the temperature is -22 degrees F to -40 degrees F, the engine may not return to idle within three seconds, as required.
Consequence: If this were to occur, greater brake pedal force and a longer distance may be required to stop the vehicle.
Actions: Dealers will replace the accelerator pedal assembly. This recall began on March 8, 2005. Owners may contact Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339 or Pontiac at 1-800-620-7668. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #05V046000 »
2004 Pontiac Grand Prix SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC NHTSA Campaign #04V287000
Summary: Certain passenger vehicles were produced with lower than specified torque on both front brake caliper to steering knuckle attachment bolts. With improper torque, the clamp load at the joint may not be adequate to prevent movement between the caliper bracket and knuckle.
Consequence: Depending on whether one or both bolts backs out or fractures, the result can be locking of the affected wheel during braking and an abrupt steering input in the direction of the locked wheel, reduced braking and noise from the affected wheel, or severing of a brake hose, increased brake pedal travel, and reduced steering control. Reduced braking or steering control could cause a crash.
Actions: Dealers are to tighten both bolts to the specified torque. Owner notification began on June 28, 2004. Owners should contact Chevrolet 1-800-630-2438 or Pontiac 1-800-620-7668. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #04V287000 »
2004 Pontiac Grand Prix STRUCTURE:FRAME AND MEMBERS NHTSA Campaign #04V299000
Summary: Certain passenger vehicles have a condition where the front frame rear body mount bracket may fracture.
Consequence: If ignored, the bracket would fracture and degrade to the point where the intermediate steering shaft could separate, resulting in loss of steering control and a crash could occur.
Actions: Dealers will inspect the front frame assembly and replace it if necessary. The recall began on August 16, 2004. Owners should contact Pontiac at 1-800-620-7668. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #04V299000 »
2004 Pontiac Grand Prix SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:FOUNDATION COMPONENTS:HOSES, LINES/PIPING, AND FITTINGS NHTSA Campaign #03V331000
Summary: Certain passenger vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 135, "passenger car braking systems." On some of these vehicles, the right rear brake hose fitting may not be tightened properly, and a brake fluid leak could occur.
Consequence: If enough fluid leaks, the brake pedal will be lower than normal, and stopping distances will be longer. If this occurs when stopping distance is limited, a crash could occur.
Actions: Dealers will tighten the right rear brake hose fitting to the proper torque specification, and add brake fluid if necessary. Owner notification began August 28, 2003. Owners should contact Pontiac at 1-800-620-7668. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #03V331000 »
