Holden Captiva Ignition Switch Recall

Holden Captiva recalled over issue with ignition switch.

Holden Captiva Ignition Switch Recall - this Captiva recall affects only vehicles fitted with a manual transmission.

Another recall for the Holden Captiva has been initiated, this time there’s an issue with the ignition switch.

Being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, the Holden Captiva Ignition Switch recall affects Series 1 CG Captiva 5 (Maxx) & Captiva 7 models fitted with manual transmissions only.

The fault could see Holden Captiva SUVs move unintentionally.

The ACCC recall notice advises that affected vehicles were built between the 22nd of February 2007 and the 25th of November 2010.

A wear condition in the ignition key cylinder actuator trigger may allow the vehicle starter motor to crank the engine if the key is left inside the ignition key cylinder and in the “OFF” position, while the vehicle is parked.

If, when the vehicle is parked, the ignition key is left in the ignition cylinder, the manual transmission is left in gear and the park brake is insufficiently applied, the vehicle may move unintentionally when the starter motor cranks the engine.

Holden will write to all affected customers to notify them of required action.
