Recalls

US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID: 99V089
Potential Number Of Units Affected: 99,269


Summary:
These vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of FMVSS No. 102, "Transmission Shift Lever Sequence". A retaining clip, which secures the linkage of the transmission detent lever, can become loose under a combination of possible driver shifting maneuvers and allow the link to become disconnected from the manual valve. If the link disconnects, the indicated gear on the transmission lever (PRNDL) may differ from the actual hydraulic state of the transmission. If the driver selects "drive" and the transmission is actually in "reverse", a vehicle crash could occur.

Remedy:
Dealers will replace the manual valve/link assembly with a replacement manual valve/link kit, featuring a spring-type retainer. Owner notification was expected to begin during May 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Oldsmobile at 1-800-442-6537.

Dates of Manufacture:
August 1998 - January 1999

Manufacturer Recall Number:
99011
