Holden Captiva fuel pump recall - the latest Holden Captiva recall affects only six vehicles.

Another Holden Captiva recall is underway, this time to fix a potential fuel pump fault.

Affecting a total of only six vehicles, the recall affects current edition models of the Holden Captiva with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission recall notice saying the vehicles could stall, or refuse to start.

The recall comes about after it was found that during service, some CG Holden Captiva 5 and 7 vehicles may have been fitted with a Fuel Pump Flow Control Module that is potentially susceptible to internal contamination, which may lead to an electrical short.

If the defect occurs, the vehicle may display a ‘check engine’ light on the instrument cluster. This may be accompanied by an engine stall, or a failure of the engine to start, posing a potential accident hazard to the vehicle occupants and other road users.

Holden will write to the owners of the six affected vehicles.

The recall comes after another Holden Captiva recall was launched last week, also affecting Captiva 5 and 7 vehicles and related to a potential ignition switch fault – check out the details here.
