GM Recalls 106,000 1986 Vehicles for Faulty Headlight Switch

October 14, 1986

DETROIT (AP) _ General Motors Corp. recalled about 106,000 1986 cars and trucks Tuesday for possible replacement of headlight switches that could cause the lights to flicker or go out, the company said.

The 1986 cars and trucks were assembled by GM’s Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Pontiac and GMC divisions.

The push-pull type switch, used on many of GM cars and trucks, may have been built with electrical contacts that could cause malfunctions, GM said.

GM also recalled about 250 of its 1986 GMC Brigadier and General heavy-duty trucks for replacement of the throttle return spring assembly.

The automaker said it has received no reports of accidents or injuries caused by either defect.
