    GM's RecallaPalooza has finally hit my Regal.... Not too worried about this one.

    GM Recall #:
    N120212

    NHTSA Recall #:
    Awaiting#

    Date Issued:
    Jul 22, 2014


    Recall Title:

    Turn Signal Lamp Outage Indicator Not Working

    Recall Description:

    General Motors has decided that certain 2011-2013 MY Buick Regal built with RPO TT4 or T4A and 2013 MY Chevrolet Malibu built with RPO T4A vehicles fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 108 - Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.

    Safety Risk Description:

    The subject vehicles are equipped with front turn single that utilize 2 bulbs in each front turn signal. In certain subject vehicles if both front turn signal bulbs burn out in either front turn signal lamp, the failure of the turn signal lamp is indicated to the driver by the turn signal arrow flashing rapidly in the instrument cluster; however, if one of the two front turn signal bulbs on either side burns out, there is no indication to the driver.

    Repair Description:

    Dealers are to reflash the body control module free of charge.

    Will get this done in the next year when I am due for another oil change, state inspection, tire rotation service..... no rush.

    Bummer.

    Is it just me or is GM dragging their feet with LED's?

    The LEDs look great. How long would they last and what is the cost to replace them?

    I do not know if it the European roots of this car but changing out almost every traditional bulb in this car is extremely easy to do. It is a really nice feature in a modern vehicle.

    I have only changed out one rear turn bulb but have scouted out all the other locations and you can get to them with just your hands without having to disassemble much of anything.

    My Malibu was affected as well. The issue is justified IMO- it's been a noticeable problem since we bought it. It will be very interesting to see how long it will take for a dealer to notify me that the parts are available to repair it. I'll probably have traded it before then!!
    Get used to more.

    Is the part you are waiting to come in the software? This one looks like it will be a SW update only.

    Guess I will be getting this recall done sooner than later.

    I just discovered my FM radio is completely out and my AM radio will only produce whisper level sounds if I crank the volume all the way up. Pandora, XM radio, USB, and CD all are working normally. Wonder if a Software update will fix this or if it is a circuit card issue. Last time I knew FM was working properly was in July while I was on vacation in Rhode Island listening to my old hometown radio stations.

    If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire Uzzy.
