Additional information:

Among the 81 (eighty one) recalls the NHTSA announced this month comes news of the following:

General Motors LLCGeneral Motors LLC (“GM”), a Detroit, Michigan, establishment, has recalled an estimated 350,371 model year 2019-2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 Trucks marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

NHTSA Safety Notification 19V888000 reports that the battery positive (B+) cable rings may have been manufactured with excessive glue, potentially causing an intermittent electrical connection between the B+ cable and alternator.

According to the NHTSA, an intermittent electrical connection between the B+ battery cable and the alternator could cause the vehicle to stall, increasing the risk of a crash. The intermittent connection could also lead to electrical arcing, which could generate sufficient heat to damage surrounding material, increasing the risk of a fire.

GM will notify registered owners, and dealers will inspect for the presence of glue or other contamination at the B+ cable attachment to the alternator and clean the connection and reattach the B+ cable connection, as necessary. If arcing has damaged the cable, nut, or alternator, the dealer will replace the damaged components. All services will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 27, 2020. Owners may contact Chevrolet Customer Service toll-free at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC customer service at 1-888-988-7267 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”). GM’s designation for this recall is N192273510.
