Recall Date: 05-11-2009 Affected Vehicles: 42,540
Component:
Exterior lighting:headlights
Summary:
"dope, inc. is recalling 42,540 combination corner and bumper lamp assemblies of various part numbers sold for use as aftermarket equipment for various passenger vehicles. these headlamps fail to conform to the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard no. 108, ""lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment."" these lamps do not contain the required amber side reflectors."
Consequence:
Decreased lighting visibility may result in a vehicle crash.
How to Fix:

Recall Date: 08-28-2007 Affected Vehicles: 175
Component:
Equipment:electrical
Summary:
Certain cequent 90 degree 7-way right angle adaptors sold by distributors in tow packages for aftermarket sales to tow 5th wheel rv travel trailers. due to incorrect wiring of the harness, the trailer lights may not operate properly.
Consequence:
If the trailer lights are not working properly, a vehicle crash can occur.
How to Fix:
All of the defective tow packages are still at the distributor level and have not been sold to any consumers.
Recall Number: 5042 Recall Date: 04-22-2005 Affected Vehicles: 90,242
Component:
Parking brake
Summary:
On certain pickup trucks equipped with manual transmissions and built with either pbr parking brake systems or trw parking brake systems, the parking brake friction linings may wear to an extent where the parking brake can become ineffective in immobilizing a parked vehicle.
Consequence:
If the parking brake does not hold, unintended vehicle movement could occur, which could result in a crash.
How to Fix:
Dealers will install a low-force spring clip retainer for vehicles equipped with a pbr parking brake system. on vehicles equipped with the trw parking brake system, dealers will install a redesigned parking brake cable assembly. the recall began on july 29, 2005. owners may contact chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438 or gmc at 1-866-996-9463.
Recall Number: 5037 Recall Date: 04-22-2005 Affected Vehicles: 1,359,824
Component:
Seat belts:rear
Summary:
On certain crew cab pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles, the 2nd row center occupant seat belt routing may make it difficult to position the lap portion of the safety belt low around the hips of occupants, especially smaller occupants, seated in this position. appropriate use of a child seat or booster seat, as recommended for small children, does improve the fit condition for this user group. in addition to instructions on proper infant and young child restraint (with child seats or boosters), special verbiage for restraining older child is included in the owner's manual. also, the suggested seat belt fit/routing for adults, irrespective of seating position, is described in the owner's manual text.
Consequence:
A lap portion of the seat belt routing that is not low and snug on the hips can allow the lap belt to ride up on an occupant's abdomen instead of fitting low around their hipbones, and therefore, can expose them to more risk of abdominal and internal organ injury.
How to Fix:
Dealers will cut open the guide loop, remove a portion of the loop, and then the remaining two sides should be folded over and secured with a retainer free of charge. the recall began on july 21, 2005. owners may contact cadillac at 1-866-982-2339, chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438, gmc at 1-866-996-9463, or hummer at 1-800-732-5493.
Recall Number: 4038 Recall Date: 05-11-2004 Affected Vehicles: 736
Component:
Seat belts:front:anchorage
Summary:
Certain extended and regular cab pickup trucks and cargo vans converted to compressed natural gas (cng) fail to conform to the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard no. 225, 'child restraint anchorage systems.' these vehicles have one seating position, the center rear seat, equipped with child restraint lower anchorages.
Consequence:
The standard requires child seat lower anchorages in two seating positions for vehicles with three rear seating positions. the standard cab and cargo van vehicles, which only have front seating positions, have an air bag off switch to disable the front passenger air bag and do not have child restraint lower anchorages in the passenger seat. the standard requires passenger seat child seat lower anchorages in vehicles with an air bag off switch. however, the standard does not require vehicles with only front seating positions to have lower anchorage provisions if the vehicle is not equipped with an air bag off switch.
How to Fix:
To bring the standard cab and cargo van vehicles into compliance, dealers will inject epoxy into the air bag off switch to prevent air bag activation, relocate the switch behind the instrument panel and then install a cover over the resulting opening. the sun visor label and owner's manual will also be changed. the correction for the extended cab vehicle will consist of changing the front passenger seat to a seat that has child restraint lower anchorages. the recall began on september 9, 2004. owners should contact chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438 or gmc at 1-866-996-9463.

Component:
Equipment
Summary:
Aftermarket pickup truck over-the-rail bedliners manufactured for installation on 1999-2004 chevrolet silverado and gmc sierra pickup trucks. the toggle wing assembly used to attach the bedliner to the truck bed is not engaging fully in the stake pocket of the pickup truck.
Consequence:
The bedliner can become detached from the pickup while it is motion, possibly endangering following motorists or pedestrians.
How to Fix:
Durakon will issue a press release in attempt to notify customers that could have purchased the defective bedliner. if you purchased either a durakon allstar of patriot overrail bedliner since august 1, 2003, for 1999 to 2004 chevrolet silverado or gmc sierra trucks, or purchased one of these pickup trucks with either brand bedliner already installed, you should return to an authorized durakon dealer so that the bedliner can be inspected and, if necessary, repaired with a newly designed toggle wing fastening system, or if required, replaced with a new bedliner free of charge. please call the durakon hotline at 1-800-933-4200 to find the nearest authorized durakon dealer.
Recall Number: 4007 Recall Date: 03-17-2004 Affected Vehicles: 3,662,211
Component:
Structure:body:tailgate:hinge and attachments
Summary:
On certain pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles, the galvanized steel tailgate support cables that retain the tailgate in the full open (horizontal) position may corrode, weaken, and eventually fracture. if both cables fractured, the tailgate would suddenly drop and strike the top surface of the rear bumper.
Consequence:
Anyone sitting or standing on the horizontal surface of the tailgate when both cables fractured could be injured by falling from the tailgate. on vehicles that have had the bumper removed, the tailgate may drop even lower. additionally, if there is cargo on the tailgate the cargo may fall off if the support cables fracture.
How to Fix:
Dealers will replace the cables. interim owner notification began on april 7, 20004. the recall began on september 24, 2004, when replacement parts were available, and will continue through october 29, 2004. owners should contact cadillac at 1-866-982-2339, chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438 or gmc at 1-866-996-9463, or visit www.mygmlink.com, and enter your vehicle identification number.
Recall Number: 4004 Recall Date: 02-04-2004 Affected Vehicles: 68,875
Component:
Service brakes, hydraulic
Summary:
Certain sport utility vehicles, pickup trucks, and passenger vans fail to comply with the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard no. 135, ?passenger car brake systems.? some of these vehicles were produced with an out-of-specification brake hydro-boost housing relief valve bore.
Consequence:
Consequently, the valve o-ring seal may fracture. steering efforts may be slightly increased while braking or parking. under certain driving conditions, a fractured seal may require a slight increase in the applied brake pedal effort to achieve the same vehicle deceleration rate as prior to the seat fracture.
How to Fix:
Dealers are to replace the hydro-boost relief valve. the recall began on june 18, 2004. owners should contact cadillac at 1-866-982-2339; chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438; gmc at 1-866-996-9463; or hummer at 1-866-486-6376.
Recall Number: 3001 Recall Date: 01-23-2003 Affected Vehicles: 110
Component:

Summary:
"certain pickup trucks fail to conform to federal motor vehicle safety standard no. 212, ""windshield mounting."" some of these vehicles lack a continuous urethane bonding bead between the body surface and the windshield. "
Consequence:
in vehicles with this condition, the windshield may not be retained in accordance with the safety standard during a vehicle crash.
How to Fix:
Dealers will remove, reseal, and reinstall the windshield. owner notification began on january 28, 2003. owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020 or gmc at 1-800-462-8782.
