2010 Chevrolet Equinox Recall for Defective Defroster and Defogger System

On December 18, 2009, General Motors Corp. announced a recall of more than 59,000 2010 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain vehicles for failure to comply with the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard No. 103, “Windshield Defrosting and Defogging Systems,” and No. 101, “Controls and Displays.”

The software in the center instrument panel can cause the controls for the heating, air conditioning, defrost, and radio to become inoperative, as well as the panel illumination. The company warns that driving without a functioning defrost system can decrease visibility and increase the risk of accidents.

General Motors informed owners that dealerships can replace the computer module in the center instrument panel for free. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438 or GMC at 1-866-996-9463.
