General Motors has issued a recall for certain examples of the 2016 and 2017 model-year Cadillac CT6 luxury sedan over the light intensity of the park/position lamps.
The problem: affected vehicles fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 108, which relates to the vehicle’s “Lamp, Reflective Devices and Associated Equipment.” The light output of the forward Park/Position lamps may exceed the maximum values permitted by Standard 108, causing them to be brighter than compliant lamps.
The hazards: forward-facing Park/Position lamps that exceed the maximum allowed brightness may distract other drivers or make it difficult for them to see, increasing the risk of a crash.
The fix: dealers will install replacement right and left-side in-line headlamp jumper harnesses, which should correct the condition. This repair will require two separate in-line headlamp jumper harnesses and should take about 40 minutes for a dealership technician to complete.
Affected components: forward-facing Park/Position lamps.
