General Motors Co. (GM: Quote) and Isuzu have announced the recall of more than 240000 sport utility vehicles in the northern United States, Canada and overseas over power door lock issues that may lead to fires.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, unwanted fluid may enter the driver's door module, causing 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. The short may also cause overheating, which could melt components of the door module, producing odor, smoke, or a fire.
Vehicles involved are certain 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT and GMC Envoy XL and 2006-2007 Chevrolet TrailBlazer, GMC Envoy, Buick Rainier, Saab 9-7x and Isuzu Ascender SUVs sold or registered in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia.
Owners will be informed by GM when the appropriate correction has been determined.
GM shares closed Friday's trading at $22.01, up $0.68 or 3.19 percent. In after-hours trading, the shares declined and closed at $21.91.
