A wiring concern in the engine compartment could result in an engine stalling or no start condition, and possibly an engine compartment fire.
General Motors will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning May 6, 2009. If you are experiencing electrical or starting problems, or you don't receive notification and you feel you should have, please contact your Chevrolet dealer. It’s helpful to have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call. The General Motors recall number is 09121.
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.
