2005 GMC Canyon RecallsGM Recalls 2004–2011 Vehicles Due to Inaccessible Top Tether Anchor for Child Safety Seat
General Motors is recalling certain 2004–2011 Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, and Isuzu regular and extended cab models without a rear seat and equipped with a 60/40 front bench split seat for failing to comply with federal safety standards on child restraint anchorage systems. The top tether anchor for the front center seat is not accessible and the manual provides no instruction on its use. In order to correct the problem, dealers will cut a hole in the back panel trim cover to allow access to the top tether anchor and will provide supplemental instructions on the use of the top tether.
General Motors is recalling various 2004–2009 models in twelve Southern and Southwestern states, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands due to contamination in the brake lamp switch, which may cause the brake lamps to fail or stay on continuously. This could lead to a crash since other drivers may not be aware of the operator's intentions. Dealers will inspect and replace the necessary components free of charge. For more information, call Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438, GMC at 1-866-996-9463, or Isuzu at 1-800-255-6727.
The brake lights may fail to illuminate, or illuminate at all times. In this condition, the cruise control will not function. If towing a trailer connected to the brake lamp wiring, the trailer lights will also be affected. A following driver may not know when the brakes are applied, increasing the risk of a rear-end crash. Dealers will replace the brake lamp switch assembly. The recall began December 5, 2006. The GM recall number is 06030.
