Date Owner notified by MFR Oct 12, 1998
Date: Received Date: Sep. 28, 1998;   Recorded Date: Sep. 29, 1998;  
Campaign Id: 98V097001
Recalled Vehicles: 1998 GMC Envoy
Component: Exterior Lighting.     Manufactured by: General Motors Corp.
Affected Vehicles: 3,116
Recall Summary: The daytime running lights were built with a candela value greater than 2,600, are located less than 100mm from the turn signals and hazard warning lamps, and are not deactivated when the turn signal or hazard warning lamps are activated. This does not comply with fmvss no. 108, "lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment. "
Consequence: This condition would make it difficult for drivers of oncoming vehicles to see the turn signal, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
How to Fix: Dealers will install a new body control module and reprogram the vehicle with a new calibration that will turn the daytime running lights off when the turn signal or hazard warning flasher is activated.
