44 NOLN | www.noln.net ing lamp in the instrument cluster during the vehicle start-up bulb-function check. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 105, "Hydraulic and Electric Brake Systems." Without the brake lamp illuminating during the vehicle start-up bulb-function check, the driver has no confirmation that the lamp is working and, therefore, may not know whether or not the lamp will il- luminate if the brake fluid level is low. If the operator is unaware that the vehicle has low brake fluid, there would be an in- creased risk of a crash. DVUSA will notify owners, and DVUSA and Dodge dealers will correct the instru- ment cluster software, as necessary, free of charge. 2016 Buick Cascada General Motors LLC is recalling certain Buick vehicles manufactured December 1, 2015, to February 24, 2016. e affected vehicles may have had the original convertible roof control module (CRCM) replaced with an incorrect CRCM, that allows the windows to close automat- ically when the roof is closed and can allow the windows to be closed remotely from distances beyond 11 meters using the key fob. As such, these vehicles no longer meet the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 118, "Power-Operat- ed Window Systems." If the windows close automatically or can be closed remotely in ways that do not meet all the requirements of FMVSS 118, the unexpected closure can increase the risk of injury to passengers. GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the CRCM with the correct mod- ule, free of charge. 2016 Nissan Titan Nissan North America, Inc. is recalling certain Titan XD vehicles manufactured August 7, 2015, to September 1, 2016. e affected vehicles may not have had the temporary fuel tank breather tube cap removed during the vehicle's assem- bly, and the fuel tank breather tube may not have been connected to the bed rail. As a result, the fuel tank may not have the proper ventilation, possibly causing the fuel gauge and the distance to empty me- ter to both display inaccurately. If the fuel gauge reads incorrectly, the vehicle can run out of fuel without the driver being aware, increasing the risk of a crash. Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the fuel tank breather tube, replacing the fuel tank, fuel sending unit and/or fuel tank breather tube, as neces- sary, free of charge. 2017 Jeep Wrangler Chrysler is recalling certain Jeep Wrangler vehicles manufactured November 1, 2016, to November 3, 2016. e affected vehicles may have a fuel tank that has cracked or a broken control valve, possibly resulting in a fuel leak in a rollover event, debris in the fuel tank and/ or the potential of over fueling the vehicle. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a fire. Chrysler will notify owners, and Jeep dealers will inspect the fuel tank and re- place the fuel tank and sending unit, as necessary, free of charge. 2017 Bentley Bentayga Bentley Motors, Inc. is recalling certain vehicles manufactured March 1, 2016, to September 30, 2016. During the assembly process, the af- fected vehicles may not have had the seat mechanism and instrument panel joints properly tightened. If the seat mechanism and instrument panel joints were not tightened, they can loosen, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash. Bentley will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and tighten the seat mecha- nism and instrument panel joints, as nec- essary, free of charge. 2008-2009 Kia Sportage Kia Motors America is recalling certain Sportage vehicles manufactured August 9, 2007, to May 13, 2009. e wire harness cover on the Hydrual- ic Electronic Control Unit (HECU) may be improperly sealed, allowing water to get onto the HECU circuit board. If the water is contaminated with salt, such as could occur from melted snow, the wire harness connector pins may corrode and the cir- cuit board may short circuit. If the HECU short circuits, there is an increased risk of an engine compartment fire. Kia will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the connector pins for corrosion. If no corrosion is found, the connector cov- er will be replaced. If corrosion is present, the dealer will replace the HECU assembly and the connector cover, free of charge.
