GM Recalling 14,245 Vehicles to Fix Potential Fire Problem

General Motors will recall 14,245 Cadillac DTS and Buick Lucerne cars with V8 engines because of a potential problem with the starter and alternator cables that can cause fires.

The cables can come into contact with the power steering return line, GM said in a statement. This can lead to a leak in power-steering fluid, battery drain and a hole in the line.

If the power steering fluid comes into contact with hot metal in the engine, this could cause a fire.

There have been four fires reported but no injuries GM said.

The cars affected are from the 2010 and 2011 model years.
