Vehicles Affected: Approximately 3,100 model-year 2014-15 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks manufactured between Jan. 24, 2014, and Feb. 26, 2014; and model-year 2015 Chevrolet Suburban SUVs manufactured on Feb. 12, 2014, and Chevrolet Tahoe SUVs manufactured between Feb. 6, 2014, and Feb. 13, 2014
The Problem: The ignition lock actuator may bind, making turning the key difficult or causing the ignition to get stuck in the Start position. If this occurs, the ignition may suddenly snap back into the Accessory position, causing a loss of engine, steering and braking power; this increases the risk of a crash in which the airbags may not deploy, increasing the risk of an injury.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the ignition lock housing for free.
