GM Recalls 35,302 Buick Park Avenues

Recall From: General Motors Corporation

Models: Buick Park Avenue Years: 2000-2001

Number Involved: 35,302

Dates of Manufacture: November 1999 - August 2000

Noncompliance: Certain passenger vehicles fail to comply with requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 104, "Windshield Wiping and Washing Systems." These vehicles have a wiper system microprocessor that is susceptible to voltage transients, which can cause a "latch-up" condition in the system controller. If microprocessor "latch-up" occurs, the customer will not be able to operate the system in both the low-speed and high-speed modes required by the standard.

Remedy: Dealers will replace the windshield wiper motor cover which contains the microprocessor. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was expected to begin during December 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Buick at 1-800-521-7300.
