GM Cars, Trucks, SUVs Recalled for Chassis Control Module Defect
Fullsize Trucks, SUVs, Crossovers Affected
General Motors has announced a recall on a total of 117,651 vehicles sold in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico for potentially faulty chassis control module. The recall affects a broad range of models, including the 2013-2014 Chevrolet Suburban/Tahoe, GMC Yukon/XL SUVs, and Silverado and Sierra HD trucks. Other models affected by the recall include the 2013-2014 Cadillac Escalade and 2014 Buick Enclave, GMC Acadia, and Chevrolet Traverse fullsize crossovers. A total of 4,500 unsold vehicles are currently in dealer inventory and are being held until the recall service can be performed.
Metallic slivers have been found to potentially cause a short within the module, which could result in the vehicle stalling or failing to start. Error messages resulting from this condition could be displayed as a check engine light or “service trailer brake” message on the Driver Information Center. Replacement parts are not yet available, and dealers have not been notified when the recall campaign will officially begin. No crashes, injuries, or deaths have been reported related to this recall.
