For the Corvette, 111,889 examples from the 2005 to 2007 model years are being recalled because of a potential loss of low-beam headlamp operation. When the engine is warm, the underhood electrical center housing could expand, causing the headlamp low-beam relay control circuit wire to bend slightly. After the wire is repeatedly bent, it can fracture and separate, leading to a loss of low-beam function.
Models from the 2008 to 2013 model years are also affected but will be covered under a Customer Satisfaction Program. GM says it is aware of several hundred complaints as a result of the condition but no crashes, injuries or fatalities.
