The front seat mounted side air bag inflators may rupture and spread metallic debris through the passenger compartment, possibly causing occupant injury or death. Dealers will replace the side impact air bag modules free of charge to resolve the concern.
Chevrolet Camaro Recalls
The driver's and/or passenger's seat may suddenly drop to its lowest position because a bolt securing the height adjuster can fall out. This unexpected movement of the driver's seat could cause a distraction, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the height adjuster bolts in both front seats to correct this concern.
The bolts fastening the steering intermediate shaft to the steering gear and the lower ball joint to the lower control arms may not be properly torqued. This could cause the components to separate, resulting in the loss of control of the vehicle. Dealers will inspect and tighten these components as necessary free of charge to resolve the problem.
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.
The driver's front air bag has a shorting bar which may intermittently contact the air bag terminals. This would cause the air bag to not function as designed in an accident. Dealers will replace the steering wheel air bag coil free of charge to resolve the problem.
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.
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.
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.
