Dealers will inspect the pivot bolts. If they weren’t fixed at the factory, dealers will put adhesive on the nut and retighten it. Canadian safety regulators say the problem can cause the brake lights to stay on longer than expected.
GM says the recall should begin shortly.MORE NEWS: 73-Year-Old Woman Killed By Comfort Sheep At Cultivate Care Farms Near Boston
