Recall Category: Electrical System – Ground Cable on the Starter Motor may break

NHTSA Safety Notification 20V554000 reports the Ground Cable connecting the Starter Motor to the vehicle frame may break at the starter-side eyelet, resulting in an Engine No-Crank or Engine Slow-Crank condition, causing the vehicle not to start.

According to the NHTSA, if the Cable is broken and repeated attempts are made to start the vehicle, the Starter may ground through the steel braiding of the Power Steering Hose, allowing it to heat up and possibly rupture, increasing the risk of a fire.
