2014 Cadillac ELR Recalled for ESC Issue
General Motors is recalling 2014 Cadillac ELR plug-in hybrid models not equipped with adaptive cruise control. In affected Cadillac ELR models, the electronic stability control (ESC) sensors may not indicate if electronic stability control is partially or fully deactivated. Issue: Software on the affected 2014 Cadillac ELR models could prevents the proper notification if the electronic stability control is not enabled. If the driver is unaware that ESC is disabled, they could drive with a higher risk of losing directional control of the vehicle, increasing the probability of an accident. A total of 656 ELR models are affected. Fix: GM will notify owners, and dealers will recalibrate the Eletronic Brake Control Module (EBCM), at no cost to owners. The recall is expected to begin April 17, 2014. Owners may also contact Cadillac directly at 1-800-458-8006, using recall number 14087, or The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or at www.safercar.gov.
