VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

8/23/2014 - JENISON, MI
WHILE DRIVING SUDDENLY THE CAR JERKED (LIKE A TRANSMISSION ERROR) AND THEN THE MESSAGE ON THE DISPLAY WOULD SHOW "SERVICE ESC" AND "TRACTION OFF". I BROUGHT THE CAR IN FIRST TO RUN AN ELECTRICAL TEST, WHERE THEY REPROGRAMED A SENSOR (COST=$158.95). A FEW DAYS LATER THE VERY SAME ISSUE HAPPENED AND AT THIS TIME WHEN I CAME TO A STOP SIGN I WENT TO ACCELERATE AND MY CAR HAD SHUT ITSELF OFF. I THEN BROUGHT IT IN WHERE THE FOUND CODES REGARDING THE MANIFOLD ABSOLUTE PRESSURE (MAP) SENSOR PROBLEMS. THE SERVICE PLACE THEN MONITORED BOTH THE COMPUTER DATA FOR THE MAP SENSOR AND THE ACTUAL SENSOR DATA DURING TEST DRIVE AND FOUND THAT WHEN THE PROBLEM OCCURS THE COMPUTER DATA DROPS OUT BUT THE SENSOR DATA REMAINS THE SAME, THEY SUGGESTED THAT IT COULD BE A POSSIBLE WIRING PROBLEM, AND I AGREED TO HAVE THEM REPLACE THE SENSOR.(COST+$275.15). NOTHING HAPPENED UNTIL A FEW WEEKS LATER AND THE VERY SAME ISSUE OCCURRED. MY HUSBAND PLAYED AROUND WITH SOME WIRES AND HAD NOTICED THAT THERE WAS A POSSIBLE WAY THAT CONDENSATE COULD GET INTO WHERE THE SENSORS WERE AND SO HE FIXED THAT ISSUE. I HAVE NOT HAD THIS ISSUE SINCE THEN. JUST WANTING TO SEE IF THERE IS A RECALL FOR THIS PROBLEM AND TO GET A PROPER FIX.

SERVICE BRAKES

8/23/2014 - JENISON, MI
I NOTICED WHILE DRIVING ONE MORNING MY BRAKE LIGHTS WERE ILLUMINATED, BUT I WAS NOT DEPRESSING THE BRAKES. WHEN I PUSHED THE BRAKE PEDAL, THE BRAKE LIGHTS WENT OFF. AT THIS VERY SAME TIME WHEN I TRIED TO SET THE CRUISE CONTROL, IT WOULD NOT ALLOW ME TO DO SO. THIS HAS BEEN AN ON-AGAIN, OFF-AGAIN ISSUE. SOME DAYS IT WORKS CORRECTLY BUT OTHER DAYS THE SAME PROBLEM PERSISTS. I RESEARCHED ONLINE AND SAW THAT THERE WAS A RECALL BY GM FOR THIS EXACT PROBLEM, RECALL ID# 14V252000, BUT WHEN I CALLED THE DEALERSHIP AND THEY CHECKED MY VIN # THEY SAID THAT MY CAR WAS NOT UNDER THE RECALL, AND THAT THEY WOULD HAVE TO TAKE MY CAR AND SEE IF IT HAPPENS TO THEM IN ORDER TO FIX IT. I READ THE RECALL AND IT IS EXACTLY THE ISSUE THAT I AM HAVING. PLEASE HELP AND ADD MINE, AND I'M SURE OTHERS, VIN#'S TO THIS RECALL BEFORE SOMETHING HORRIBLE HAPPENS!
