Condition


General Motors has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain 2006 model year Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT and GMC Envoy XL; 2006-2007 model year Buick Rainier, Chevrolet TrailBlazer, and GMC Envoy; and 2005-2007 model year Saab 9-7X vehicles currently or previously registered in Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, Europe, Japan, and Russia. If fluid enters the driverís door module, it may cause corrosion that could result in a short in the circuit board. A short may cause the power door lock and power window switches to function intermittently or become inoperative. In rare cases, a short may cause overheating, which could melt components of the door module, producing odor, smoke, or a fire.

Correction


Dealers are to test the driver's window and door lock switches for proper operation. If the switches function properly, dealers are to install a protective coating to the door module. If the switches do not function properly, dealers are to install a new door module.
Owners of 2005-2007 model year Saab 9-7X vehicles delivered in the U.S. or Canada will receive a separate notification and be addressed by Saab Authorized Service Centers. This bulletin applies to those 2005-2007 model year Saab 9-7X vehicles delivered outside of the U.S. and Canada that are subject to this safety recall.

Vehicles Involved


All involved vehicles are identified by Vehicle Identification Number on the Investigate Vehicle History screen in GM Global Warranty Management system. Dealership service personnel should always check this site to confirm vehicle involvement prior to beginning any required inspections and/or repairs. It is important to routinely use this tool to verify eligibility because not all similar vehicles may be involved regardless of description or option content.
For dealers with involved vehicles, a listing with involved vehicles containing the complete vehicle identification number, customer name, and address information has been prepared and will be provided to US and Canadian dealers through the GM GlobalConnect Recall Reports, or sent directly to export dealers. Dealers will not have a report available if they have no involved vehicles currently assigned.
The listing may contain customer names and addresses obtained from Motor Vehicle Registration Records. The use of such motor vehicle registration data for any purpose other than follow-up necessary to complete this recall is a violation of law in several states/provinces/countries. Accordingly, you are urged to limit the use of this report to the follow-up necessary to complete this recall.
