Additional information:

Among the 66 NHTSA has announced this October comes news of the following:

General Motors LLC (“GM”) has recalled an estimated 30,289 model year 2016-2018 Chevrolet Express and GMC Sierra vehicles equipped with a single, manual, rear climate control module (“CCM”). If the temperature is set to Maximum Heat or the mode knob is set to Maximum Floor Vent and an electrical short occurs, components within the CCM may overheat.

According to the NHTSA, if the CCM overheats, there is an increased risk of a fire in the vehicle’s headliner.

GM will notify registered owners, and dealers will remove the electrical insulation from a wiring connector within the CCM to remove the fire risk, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule for this recall. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM’s number for this recall is 18299.
