Stuck Brake Pedal

Jan. 29, 2020

This bulletin applies to 2010-2015 Buick LaCrosse and 2011-2015 Regal vehicles. In “rare cases,” the brake pedal may not raise or may seem stuck down during a normal braking event.

The condition may occur in high temperature and humidity conditions and may not be repeatable. 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 pedal is applied or released.

If the concern is intermittent, allow the vehicle 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.

If this condition is verified, replace the brake pedal arm. Be sure to use the 2 new retaining clips that accompany the new brake pedal arm.
