[FR Doc. 05–7207 Filed 4–8–05; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–59–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Petition To Modify an Exemption of a Previously Approved Antitheft Device; General Motors Corporation National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Department of Transportation (DOT). ACTION: Grant of a petition to modify an exemption from the Parts Making Requirements of a previously approved antitheft device. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice grants in full GM’s second petition to modify the exemption of the previously approved antitheft device for the Cadillac DeVille vehicle line beginning with model year (MY) 2006. This notice also acknowledges GM’s notification that the nameplate for the Cadillac DeVille vehicle line will be changed to Cadillac DTS beginning with the 2006 model year. NHTSA is granting GM’s petition to modify the exemption because it has determined that, based on substantial evidence provided by GM, that the modified antitheft device described in GM’s petition is likely to be as effective in reducing and deterring motor vehicle theft as compliance with the partsmaking requirements. PO 00000 Frm 00106 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 18457 The exemption granted by this notice is effective beginning with model year (MY) 2006. DATES: Ms. Rosalind Proctor, Office of International Policy, Fuel Economy and Consumer Programs, NHTSA, 400 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20590. Ms. Protctor’s telephone number is (202) 366–0846. Her fax number is (202) 493– 2290. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: On April 27, 1990, NHTSA published in the Federal Register a notice granting in part the petition from GM for an exemption from the parts-making requirements of the Theft Prevention Standard (49 CFR Part 541) for the MY 1991 Cadillac DeVille vehicle line. The DeVille was equipped with the ‘‘PASSKey’’ antitheft device (see 55 FR 17854). On June 2, 1999, NHTS published in the Federal Register a notice granting in full GM’s petition for modification of the previously approved antitheft device for the Cadillac DeVille vehicle line beginning with the 2000 model year. The DeVille was equipped with the ‘‘PASS-Key III’’ antitheft device (see 64 FR 29736). On February 15, 2005, GM submitted a second petition to modify an exemption of its existing antitheft device. GM’s submission is a complete petition, as required by 49 CFR 543.9(d), in that it meets the general requirements contained in 49 CFR 543.5 and the specific content requirements of 49 CFR 543.6 GM’s petition provides a detailed description of the identity, design and location of the components of the antitheft system proposed for installation beginning with the 2006 model year. GM’s petition also informed the agency of its planned nameplate change for the Cadillac DeVille to the Cadillac DTS nameplate beginning with the 2006 model year. GM stated that the Cadillac DeVille will continue to be built on the existing ‘‘K’’ car platform from which the Cadillac DeVille line is currently built. GM stated that the current antitheft device (‘‘PASS-Key III’’) installed on the Cadillac DeVille vehicle line provides protection against unauthorized starting and fueling of the vehicle engine. GM stated that the antitheft device is designed to be active at all times without direct intervention by the vehicle operator, and that no specific or discrete security system action is necessary to achieve protection of the device. The device is fully armed immediately after the vehicle has been turned off and the key has been removed. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\11APN1.SGM 11APN1
