GM ANNOUNCES TWO SAFETY RECALLS

 DETROIT, March 1 /PRNewswire/ -- General Motors (NYSE: GM) said today it is conducting two recalls to correct specific safety-related conditions on certain passenger cars and school bus chassis units. Owners are being notified.
 The first recall involves approximately 7,000 1991-model Pontiac Grand Prix coupes. These vehicles could exhibit a condition in which fog lamps, low beam head lamps and high beam head lamps can be operated simultaneously. This condition can overload the head lamp circuit breaker and result in a loss of head lamps.
 GM dealers will install a new fog lamp relay, circuit breaker and circuit breaker terminals to correct the condition. No accidents or injuries have been reported as a result of the condition.
 The second recall involves approximately 7,500 Chevrolet and GMC Truck 1989-91-model B6 and 1993-model B7 school bus chassis units equipped with 6.0L engines. These vehicles could exhibit a condition that could allow the throttle cam lever to disengage from the throttle drive shaft allowing the engine to go to wide open throttle. Should rpm reach 4,000, the governor is actuated, preventing the engine from exceeding that level. Vehicles can be stopped by depressing the service brake pedal even if this condition exists. No accident or injury reports have been received.
 Dealers will inspect the vehicles for proper throttle cam lever to shaft attachment and replace the throttle drive cover assembly, if necessary.
