Chevrolet Tahoe RecallsIgnition Key Cylinder Binds
The ignition key cylinder may bind, resulting in the key sticking in the "start" position inadvertently. This can result in the key snapping back unexpectedly into the "accessory" position, and cause vehicle stalling and loss of safety features. Dealers will replace the ignition lock housing free of charge to resolve 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.
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.
