Saturn Recall 00082: GM/FMVSS 114/Park Lock Cable Assembly

2000 Saturn SL

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

Power Train — Automatic Transmission — Park/Neutral Start Switch

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.
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.
