Owners of 2005-06 Pontiac GTO models may complain that the hazard flasher in the car can't be turned off once activated. According to GM, the problem usually is intermittent and the result of a defect in the body control module's (BCM) internal relay.
Updated BCMs are available to eliminate the condition.
Order part No. 92176590 for 2005 models, and part No. 92179694 for 2006 vehicles.
