CATEGORY:     SAFETY CAMPAIGN

ATTENTION:    ALL DMC DEALERS/SERVICE MANAGERS

SUBJECT:      SAFETY CAMPAIGN NO. RA-0003 (RECALL)
              INERTIA SWITCH
              ALL 1981 MODEL YEAR VEHICLES - VIN 560-7199
              1982 MODEL YEAR VEHICLES - VIN10001-11127

DMC is initiating the above referenced safety campaign
because it has been determined that a safety related
problem exists with the inertia switch.

There are two modes of malfunction:

     A)  The inertia switch can go to an open circuit
         condition which will result in the fuel pump
         becoming inoperative.

     B)  In the event of a collision, the inertia switch's
         internal contacts may remain closed and therefore
         would not interrupt fuel pump operation.

We are requesting DMC dealers to replace and relocate the
inertia switch on all 1981 model year DMC vehicles from
VIN 560 to 7199 and replace the inertia switch on 1982
model year vehicles from VIN 10001 to 11127.

NOTE:  The inertia switch for 1982 was relocated in pro-
       duction.

Notice:  Vehicles modified at the Quality Assurance Centers
         prior to shipment to dealers can be identified by
         white paint markings on the inertia switches.
         However, dealers should verify this modification
         on all vehicles within the above VIN range during
         pre-delivery inspection.

Enclosed please find:

     1)  A copy of the notification letter sent to all
         De Lorean owners.

     2)  Repair procedures and reimbursement instructions.

                                          Continued. . .

IMPORTANT - SAFETY RECALL NOTICE Dear De Lorean Owner: This notice is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act. De Lorean Motor Company has determined that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in the fuel cutoff system of 1981 and 1982 De Lorean vehicles.

Dealers will receive necessary parts and instructions by July 19, 1982. Contact your dealer immediately for an appointment.

    partially remove the service interval mileage counter bracket
    located in the driver's footwell to gain access and remove the
    inertia switch.

    NOTE:  Retain the removed switch for return shipment.

3)  Using a "broken line" portion of the diagram in Figure 1 as
    a template, mark the two (2) pilot hole locations as indicated.

4)  Drill two 3.9 mm (5/32 inch) pilot holes at the marked positions.

5)  Position and secure the new inertia switch (P/N 111209) with
    the supplied screws (P/N SP 10828) in its new location.

    NOTE:  New switches can be identified by a white paint marking

7)  Perform the following test procedures:

    a)  With the inertia switch plunger in the down position,
        start the engine.

    b)  With the engine running, lift the inertia switch plunger -
