Chevrolet Silverado 3500 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 brake pedal may become loose and may stop working, resulting in loss of braking ability and increasing risk of an accident.
When deployed in a crash, the passenger front air bag inflator can rupture. As a result, metal fragments from the inflator can strike occupants.
The engine may shut off unexpectedly resulting in loss of engine, steering and braking power.
A hose that provides ventilation to the fuel system may become detached due to a loose clamp. This could result in a fuel leak and fire hazard.
The front seats may not stay secure to the vehicle in the event of a high load or an accident. This can cause risk of occupant injury.
The fusible link for the auxiliary battery can melt due to too much current being drawn from it. This can increase the risk of a fire.
A clamp for the power steering hose may fail at the pump or the gear, resulting in a power steering fluid leak. This could cause a fire hazard and a possible loss of power steering assist, which could lead to an accident.
For vehicles equipped with a vinyl floor covering, the driver's side floor mat anchor may be missing. This could allow a floor mat to shift and cause the accelerator pedal to get lodged and stick in a position where it accelerates the vehicle without being commanded by the driver.
