Yeah recall 10183A only covered '05, '06 and '08. Problem is there all the time? Usually will work after you turn the car off, cancel RAP (open and close drivers door) and sometimes wait one minute before turning the key on. Really, most of the time just turn the car off and right back on is sufficient to clear the condition temporarily. Most of these were bad assist motors.

Yes! 800$ out of my pocket,and not one dime from GM.Said it was out of warranty and past mileage! Typical response as the problem obviously still exists and just sweep the problem under the carpet.

Juniorm321, $800 out of your pocket sucks. What was the problem? Post the details of the repair (parts, labor, etc.) so that someone else might benefit from your experience.

I am having the same issue here. Just spoke to a service tech at local GM dealership and she stated that there are no service recalls or special policies on my vehicle. It is a 2009 and I'm getting close on mileage. Any ideas on this or is it safe to continue to drive it? PS still works just fine, however it flashes the message!

VIN - 9F234448
Mileage - 976xx
