Power Liftgate Software recall
I was just wondering if anyone else has seen the latest Enclave recall. I happened to be on the Buick Owner Center had noticed that I had a new notification. Lo and behold, there was another recall.... Guess the letter will be in the mail soon.
GM Recall #: N150240
NHTSA Recall #: Awaiting#
Date Issued: Jun 23, 2015
Recall Title: Power Liftgate Software
General Motors has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 2008-2015 model year Buick Enclave, 2009-2015 model year Chevrolet Traverse, 2007-2015 model year GMC Acadia, and 2007-2010 model year Saturn Outlook vehicles with the power liftgate option. Vehicles with a power liftgate have a Prop Rod Recovery system intended to stop the liftgate from falling if the liftgate’ s gas struts are incapable of supporting the door. However, in vehicles with weakened gas struts, the liftgate may operate in an unexpected manner while in the Prop Rod Recovery mode, including falling rapidly and without warning.
Safety Risk Description:
If this condition occurs, it may introduce the opportunity for injury due to contact of the liftgate door with a person’s head/body.
Dealers will reflash the power liftgate actuator motor ECU a new software calibration intended to mitigate the condition, free of charge. Additionally, dealers applying the reflash remedy to a vehicle will verify power liftgate operation following the reflash to determine whether its liftgate gas struts need to be replaced as well.
