DETROIT September 5, 2003; Dow Jones reported that General Motors Corp. plans to recall about 783,000 certain 2000 and 2001 Chevrolet Malibu, Oldsmobile Alero, and Pontiac Grand Am cars to replace hazard-warning switches.

In a press release Friday, GM said the hazard-warning switches that may malfunction due to exposure to rapid temperature changes and a soldering process, which could cause the warning and turn signals to work intermittently or not at all.

GM said it hasn't received any reports of crashes or injuries caused by the malfunction, and expects new replacement parts to be available in the first quarter of 2004.
