What is a recall? The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, generally in cooperation with the vehicle manufacturer, issues recalls when a motor vehicle or item of motor vehicle equipment (including tires) does not comply with a Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard or when there is a safety-related defect in the vehicle or equipment. Work dictated by a recall is generally completed at no charge to the vehicle owner, regardless of whether you are the first owner or a subsequent owner. Please contact your service facilities for additional details and to confirm that this recall is relevant to your particular vehicle.

Defect Description

FMVSS NO. 124, "ACCELERATOR CONTROL SYSTEMS" REQUIRES TWO ENERGY SOURCES ON THE ACCELERATOR CONTROL CAPABLE OF RETURNING THE MOTOR CONTROLLER TO THE "IDLE" POSITION. ALTHOUGH THESE VEHICLES ARE EQUIPPED WITH TWO SOURCES OF ENERGY (SPRINGS) ON THE ACCELERATOR CONTROL SYSTEM, ONE SPRING (LOCATED ON THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL) IS NOT CAPABLE OF RETURNING THE ACCELERATOR POTENTIOMETER TO THE "IDLE" POSITION. THIS DOES NOT CONFORM TO THE REQUIREMENTS OF FMVSS NO. 124.

Defect Consequence

CONSEQUENCE OF NON-COMPLIANCE: THE ENGINE SPEED MAY NOT RETURN TO IDLE INCREASING THE POTENTIAL FOR A VEHICLE CRASH.

Defect Corrective Action

SOLECTRIA IS REDESIGNING THE ACCELERATOR CONTROL POTENTIOMETERS TO CONTAIN TWO INDEPENDENT TORSIONAL SPRINGS, EACH CAPABLE OF RETURNING THE POTENTIOMETER TO THE IDLE POSITION. DEALERS WILL UPGRADE THE VEHICLES INVOLVED WITH THE NEWLY DESIGNED ACCELERATOR CONTROL SYSTEMS.
