A Potential 424 Affected Units

This recall may not involve as many vehicles as some of the other automotive recalls, it is equally as important. Dorman Products Inc. is expected to issue a recall on power window switches. However, as of yet, there is not a remedy for the problem, and there is no time table scheduled. Owners that believe they have an affected part can contact Dorman customer service at 1-800-523-2492. Although there are not unique vehicles or models involved, part numbers for two separate brands include...

  • Dorman-brand part numbers 901-601 and 901-370

  • Solutions-brand part numbers 730-7444-1 and 730-7630-1

Cars with these parts fail to comply with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 118, which deals with power-operated window systems. The switches are equipped, with an anti-pinch function, that does not work properly. Activating the item, intentionally or not, can lead to personal injuries. A finger, or another body part, which is in the way of the window rolling up, can become pinched, lacerations may occur, and in some circumstances, it may even lead to the amputation of an appendage.

The auto-up function is the malfunctioning piece and rather than stopping or retracting the window will continue moving upward. As you can imagine, this can be a harrowing experience, and one that should be avoided, whenever it is humanly possible. It is of particular importance to pay extra close attention to this information if you have children. Little fingers are always finding their ways into places that they do not belong, and even if they are aware of the problem, their little mind's may not be able to comprehend what is happening. Protecting your child is always a necessity, but all of the precautions in the world do not account for recalls.
