Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD RecallsBrake Pedal Comes Loose And Fails To Operate
The brake pedal may loosen and fail to operate properly, due to the loosening of a pivot nut. Dealers will inspect the brake pedal pivot nuts and add thread adhesive, tightening the nut as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
In a crash that deploys the passenger front air bag, the inflator of the air bag can rupture, causing metal debris to strike vehicle occupants. Dealers will replace the front passenger air bag inflator free of charge to correct the concern.
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.
