Recall on 31,661 GM and Saab vehicles

General Motors of Canada is recalling 31,661 vehicles because the headlamp driver module (HDM) may not operate properly in high underhood temperatures, in which case the low-beam headlamps and daytime running lamps could fail to illuminate. 
Loss of daytime running lamps and low-beam headlamps could reduce the driver's vision and make the vehicle less visible to other motorists, which could result in a crash.

While a correction has yet to be determined, you should note that this condition does not affect the high-beam headlamps, marker lamps, turn signals, or fog lamps. 

Affected models include:

  • 2006-2009 Buick Allure;
  • 2006-2007 Buick Rainier;
  • 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer and Trailblazer EXT;
  • 2006 GMC Envoy and Envoy XL;
  • 2006-2008 Saab 9-7X.
