The engine may stall and fuel may leak due to overheating of the electrical terminals in the fuel pump module, resulting in the melting of the flange material. Dealers will replace the fuel module and fuel tank jumper wiring harness free of charge to resolve the concern.
Due to an incomplete weld on the seat hook bracket assembly, the front seats in the affected vehicles may not stay secured in place. A seat that does not stay secured increases the risk of occupant injury in a vehicle crash. Dealers will inspect the lower seat track and replace it as necessary to correct this concern.
The weight on the key ring and/or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine and increasing the risk of a crash. In the event of a crash, if the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy as expected. Dealers will provide two replacement key rings, and vehicles with slotted keys will receive key inserts to correct this concern. Note: Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring.
The roof rail air bags may deploy unexpectedly due to excessive vibration from the vehicle's drive shaft. Dealers will replace the rear drive shaft assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.
Due to a failure of the transmission shift cable brackets, the shifter indicator may read the wrong gear as selected. If "park" is selected, but not actually engaged, the vehicle may move unexpectedly. Dealers will inspect for proper shift cable mounting and ensure proper routing free of charge to resolve the concern.
The windshield wipers may fail in certain conditions, such as turning the vehicle off while leaving them turned on, followed by being covered by ice and snow. Dealers will replace the front wiper module free of charge to resolve the concern.
The retaining nut for the brake booster pushrod at the brake pedal may not have been tightened correctly during vehicle assembly. The nut could loosen and allow the pushrod to separate from the brake pedal. This would result in loss of braking ability, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the pushrod retention nut and tighten it to the correct specification if necessary. The General Motors recall number is 11318.
The lock nuts securing the toe link portion of the rear suspension may loosen and cause a clanking type noise. In some cases, the toe link could separate and cause the rear wheel to turn in and out uncontrollably. This can result in a loss of vehicle control, which increases the risk of a crash. Toe links will be inspected and replaced as necessary and new lock nuts will be installed. At this time, there is no scheduled start date for this recall. The GM recall number is 11029.
