Chevrolet Suburban 1500 RecallsIgnition Switch
The ignition switch actuator can bind causing the ignition switch to stick in the "start" position. If this were to occur the actuator can unexpectedly release, cause the ignition switch to snap back into the "Accessory" position. This would cause the engine to turn off with an associated loss of brake and steering power assist. If these conditions were to lead to a crash the airbags may not deploy as expected. Dealers will inspect and replace the ignition lock housing as necessary to correct this concern.
A fault can develop with the Electric Power Steering resulting in sudden loss of power steering assist, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the power steering assist motor kit to correct this concern.
The chassis electrical module can short due to internal contamination. This can result in the vehicle stalling. Dealers will replace the chassis electronic module free of charge to resolve the concern.
