Chevrolet Silverado 1500 HD Recalls
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
The wiring to the washer system fluid heater may overheat. This can create a burning smell, smoke, and possibly a fire under the hood.
A damper on the fuel rail may come loose and cause a fuel leak. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire.
The tire and loading information label on the driver's side door frame may be inaccurate. A misprinted label could lead to overloading of the vehicle, which could possibly lead to tire failure and a crash.
One of the power steering hoses may not be able to contain the pressure of the system and may rupture. If this were to happen, power steering assist would be lost and steering effort would increase. On vehicles equipped with hydro-boost brakes, braking effort would also increase. If power steering fluid were to spray on hot engine parts, an engine compartment fire could also occur.
The second row center seat belt may be difficult to position correctly on smaller passengers.
