NHTSA Upgrades Investigation Into Chevrolet Trailblazer Electrical Fires

June 19, 2012 by Parrish Law Firm, PLLC

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is upgrading an investigation into 340,000 Chevrolet Trailblazer in connection to electrical fires in driver-side doors, reports The Detroit News.

The NHTSA’s investigation was sparked by reports of 28 door fires connected to a defect in the Trailblazer’s driver’s-side power master switch. Some of the fires occurred while the SUV was uninhabited with no key in the ignition.

General Motors Co. has agreed to cooperate fully in the investigation, and will expand its examination into the Trailblazer’s sister models.

NHTSA has collected a total of 83 complaints, 66 in which the owner claimed that the door module had burned or melted, and 17 in which the window switches performed erratically or were not working.

We will keep you updated as the investigation continues.
