Chevrolet RecallsSoftware Defect May Prevent Airbags From Deploying
If the airbag system is in a diagnostic test mode during a crash, the deployment of the frontal airbags and seat belt pretensioners will not occur. Dealers will reflash the system software. In the event the vehicle has had a previous airbag deployment, the airbag sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) will be replaced free of charge.
Wiring for the passenger side occupant detection system can be worn through by the passenger seat frame. This can cause the passenger side air bag to not operate properly in an accident, and additionally can cause the rest of the restraint system to fail. Dealers will double wrap the wires with anti-abrasion tape and replace damaged wires as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
The ignition key may be able to be removed from the ignition switch without having the transmission shift lever securely in the park position. This could allow the vehicle to roll unexpectedly. Dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the key cylinder lock housing free of charge to resolve the concern.
