GM recalls 121,000 Cadillac ATS cars for fire risks

David Shepardson, Detroit News Washington Bureau
The Detroit News

General Motors Co. said Wednesday it is recalling 121,000 Cadillac ATS cars for fire risks linked to a fault in the rear defogger system.

The recall includes 97,000 2013-16 ATS sedans in the U.S and 24,000 in Canada, Mexico and outside North America. GM said it is aware of four fires but no injuries, fatalities or crashes. The Detroit automaker says less than 1 percent of the recalled vehicles are expected to have the condition.

GM says the issue could pose a risk of a fire inside the rear pillar on the driver’s side of the vehicle.

GM said some of the recalled ATS cars may have been manufactured with “critically weak terminal connectivity in the coil antenna module, which powers the rear defogger system. If the module has the condition and is subjected to excessive cycling or continuous operation, it may overheat and a fire may develop inside the rear pillar on the driver’s side of the vehicle.”

Dealers will update the Electronic Climate Control module software to remove the automatic rear defogger “on” function.
