  2. 2001 Saturn SC1 POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION:PARK/NEUTRAL START SWITCH NHTSA Campaign #00V310000

    • Date Announced: OCTOBER 12, 2000
    • Vehicles Affected: 65,000

    Summary: Vehicle description: Certain passenger vehicles, equipped with automatic transaxles, fail to comply with the requirements of FMVSS no. 114, "theft protection." These vehicles were built with an improperly adjusted automatic transaxle park lock cable assembly. If improperly adjusted, it is possible to shift from the "park" position with the ignition key removed.

    Consequence: This condition increases the risk of a crash resulting from the unintended movement of parked vehicles.

    Actions: Saturn is asking owners and retailers to perform a functional check of the automatic transaxle park lock cable assembly operation, and if necessary, to have the cable adjusted. If owners are not comfortable performing the functional check themselves, they can have their dealer perform this inspection for them.
