This bulletin applies to 2010-2015 Cadillac SRX vehicles. In “rare” cases, the brake pedal may not raise or seem stuck down after a normal braking event.
The condition may occur in high temperatures and humidity conditions and may not be repeatable. The brake lights will remain on and brakes may drag after the pedal is released. A pop, click or snap noise may be heard when the brake pedal is applied or released.
If the concern is intermittent, allow the vehicle to sit 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.
If the condition is verified, replace the brake pedal assembly and be sure to use the two new retaining clips that accompany the new brake pedal arm.
