In the affected vehicles, the chassis electronic module may be internally contaminated, resulting in an electrical short.

Consequence: If the module experiences an electrical short, the vehicle could stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

What Owners Should Do: GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the chassis electronic module, free of charge. The recall began on December 26, 2014.

Due to an incomplete weld on the seat hook bracket assembly, the front seats in the affected vehicles may not stay secured in place during a high load condition such as a crash.

Consequence: A seat that does not stay secured increases the risk of occupant injury in a vehicle crash.

What Owners Should Do: GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the seat hook bracket assembly weld and replace the lower seat track, as necessary, free of charge.

Component: POWER TRAIN:TRANSFER CASE (4-WHEEL DRIVE)

Problem Summary: General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra vehicles, and model year 2015 GMC Yukon and Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe vehicles. In the affected vehicles, an electrical signal short may cause the transfer case to shift to neutral without the driver's input.

Consequence: If the transfer case switches to neutral while the vehicle is parked and the parking brake is not in use, the vehicle may roll away increasing the risk of injury to bystanders.
