General Motors (GM) is recalling about 10,000 certain model year 2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V and 2006-2007 Cadillac STS-V vehicles.

In the affected vehicles, the electrical terminals of the fuel pump module may overheat resulting in the melting of the flange material. If the flange melts, a hole may be created allowing the fuel pump to leak fuel.

This can cause the car to stall, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. Additionally, leaking fuel in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.

GM will notify owners of the recall, but has not yet provided a notification schedule. Dealers will replace the fuel module and fuel tank jumper harness, free of charge.

Owners can contact Cadillac customer service at (800) 458-8006 for more information. GM's number for this recall is 14405.
