This bulletin applies to 2013-2015 Cadillac XTS models. In “rare” cases, the brake pedal may not raise or seem to be stuck down after a normal braking event.
The condition may occur in high temperature and humidity conditions and may not be repeatable. The brake lights will remain on and the brakes may drag after the pedal is released. A pop, click or snap noise may be heard when the pedal is applied or released.
If the concern is intermittent, allow the engine to idle for 30 minutes, on max heat and floor mode to try to induce the concern.
The condition may be due to a bind in the brake pedal pivot bushing, in which case the brake pedal arm must be replaced.
NOTE: Be sure to use the two new retaining clips that are supplied with the new brake pedal arm. To identify the correct brake pedal arm to order, refer to the electronic parts catalog for the specific vehicle model and year.
