GM Recall #: 2020760

GM Recall #:
2020760
NHTSA Recall #:
Awaiting#
Date Issued:
Feb 03, 2016
Recall Title:

Brake Pedal

Recall Description:

General Motors has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 2015 2016 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500/3500 Heavy Duty Pickup Trucks and Chevrolet Tahoe PPV vehicles. The brake pedal pivot nut on these vehicles may become loose, causing the brake pedal to be loose or inoperative.

Safety Risk Description:

If the brake pedal becomes loose or inoperative, the driver may be unable to safely stop the vehicle through application of the brake pedal, increasing the risk of a crash. A loose pedal may also interfere with the accelerator pedal, increasing the risk of a crash.

Repair Description:

Dealers will add adhesive to the nut and reinstall the bolt at an increased torque, free of charge.

I read this last month. If I had one I would crawl under the dash and double nut the bolt, if there was room, till the dealer fixed it. Something about the pedal interfering with the accelerator pedal would make for one crazy drive.

I checked mine as soon as I got the recall notice. Appeared fine. Now I check it every once in a while until I can swing by the dealer.

I had mine checked by the dealer a week ago since I had it in for warranty work.

Dealer needs to join GM-Trucks.com. I had a notice on 2-15.

I had mine done when I had mine in for Warranty work a few days ago. They squirted some lock-tite on the threads and re-installed and re=torqued the nut.

BTW, here is a new GM problem. We experienced this several times on our last trip. If you have a dual-zone heat/c system (separate temp control knobs for driver and passenger) in either a Silverado or a Colorado pick-up (and I assume the GMC versions of those trucks, too) there may be a glitch in the software that operates the heat/ac system. On a purely random basis, the temperature of the passenger side would increase from wherever Yvonne had it set to 78 degrees (never 77, never 79, always 78 degrees.) You typically wouldn't notice it until the passenger side got pretty warm.

Two trips to the dealer...no problems found. No fault codes set, nothing. Today, one of the technicians called GM and asked about it (why they didn't do this earlier I don't know) and was told that GM is aware of it, and is working to write a patch to their software to fix it. The dealer said they don' know when that might be, but it isn't dangerous, just maybe a little uncomfortable and annoying, so go ahead and use it, and he'll call me when they have a new software download ready for the heating system.

Has anybody else experienced this?

Not exactly. I don't have the uplevel zoned climate control but I know I have a software issue. The AC will simply turn itself on. It has happened when its below zero outside, driving down the highway at 75mph with the heat blasting on high. Here comes the AC. People have told me that's normal, its turning on to lower the humidity. That's BS. Why is it blowing out the dash vent right in my face. They did not design a truck to blow AC in your face on a sub zero day. Needless to say you can't make it happen when you're at the service dept.

Also. Sometimes the touchscreen radio will just lock up after a couple of hours. No sound and none of the controls work. You have to pull over and shut off the truck, then restart. It needs a reboot. Again, you can't make it happen at the dealer.

Since the HVAC is tied into the touchscreen I really think both issues are tied together and related to a software bug.

I guess when it go's in for the brake pedal recall I think I'm going to request they re flash everything. Great truck though.

The bolt is in a blind hole iirc so a nut is out of the question.
