Chevrolet Camaro recalls

 

For Models: Chevrolet Camaro

Body, Interior & Misc., June 20, 2014

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The driver may accidentally hit the ignition key with their knee, moving the key out of the run position, turning off the engine. If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy if the vehicle is involved in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Additionally, loss of power steering, and power braking, could increase the risk of a vehicle crash. Note: Until the recall has been performed, drivers should adjust their seat and steering column to allow clearance between their knee and the ignition key. Dealers will remove the key blade from the original flip key/RKE transmitter assembly, and provide two new keys and two key rings per key.

Body, Interior & Misc., September 26, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Certain vehicles are being recalled because the required airbag warning label mounted on each of the sunvisors may peel off. Without the warning label, front seat occupants may not know the risks of airbag deployment, increasing the risk of injury should they deploy during a crash. Owners will be instructed how to inspect the label. If necessary dealers will replace the sunvisor as necessary.

Body, Interior & Misc., January 24, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The driver's front airbag includes a safety device called a shorting bar - this prevents unexpected deployment of the airbag when it is removed from the vehicle. In this case, the shorting bar may intermittently contact the airbag terminals while it is installed in the vehicle. This could result in illumination of the airbag warning light or the airbag may not deploy when necessary. Failure of the airbag to deploy would increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the steering wheel airbag coil to correct this concern.

For Models: Chevrolet Camaro, Chevrolet Camaro SS

Engine, May 6, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The main cable between the battery and the starter motor may come into contact with the starter motor housing, and over time the cable insulation could wear through and create an electrical short. The short could result in an engine stall or no start condition, and in some cases, a fire could occur. Dealers will reroute the positive battery cable to ensure adequate clearance.
