GM Recall to Repair Heated Washer Fluid System08/29/08 GM is recalling 944,000 trucks, cars and SUVs equipped with the automaker's heated washer fluid system. A short on the circuit board that controls the heater may overheat the circuit ground wire and cause electrical components to malfunction, creating an odor, smoke or a possible fire.
