Component not known


00V055
On certain light duty trucks equipped with 4-wheel disc brakes, the Antilock Brake System (ABS) motor contains an out-of-specification spring clip. This clip could allow the motor bearing to become misaligned. If misalignment occurs, eventually the ABS would be non-functional. The base brakes would remain fully functional, but the Dynamic Rear Proportioning (DRP) system, which optimizes front to rear brake balance, would become inoperative, increasing the likelihood of a crash.
Dealers will replace the brake pressure module valve assembly. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification will begin during April 2000. Owners who 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.

00V228003
Certain passenger vehicles, light duty pickup trucks, sport utility vehicles, and mini vans equipped with TRW seat belt buckle assemblies fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 209, "Seat Belt Assemblies." The buckle base of these seat belt assemblies were not properly heat treated and do not pass the load bearing requirement of the standard. In the event of a vehicle crash, the occupant may not be properly restrained.
Dealers will inspect the vehicle's rear safety belt buckle assembly date codes and, if necessary, will replace any rear safety belt buckle assembly. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during September 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Buick at 1-800-521-7300; Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020; GMC at 1-800-462- 782, Oldsmobile at 1-800-442-6537; Pontiac at 1-800-762-2737; or Saturn at 1-800-553-6000.

00V258001
Certain light duty pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles were built with incorrect payload information on the vehicle certification label. The payload shown on the label is greater than the maximum validated payload. If the vehicle is loaded to the incorrectly labeled payload, it may not ride and handle in the manner that the driver expects. This could result in a loss of control of the vehicle or an inability to stop the vehicle within expected stopping distances.
Owners will be sent a new label for installation on the driver's door of the vehicle. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Oct. 18, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free label within a reasonable time should contact GMC at 1-800-462-8782, Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020, or Oldsmobile at 1-800-442-6537.

99V220
On certain pickup truck and sport utility vehicles equipped with 2-wheel drive, the right-hand antilock brake system (ABS) module feed pipe and/or brake crossover pipe tube nuts could have been tightened without seating the pipe-flared-ends enough to withstand normal assembly and vehicle inputs without partially unseating. If this occurred, the seal could have been broken during vehicle assembly, or brake fluid cycling, and a leak could occur, increasing the brake stopping distance. If so, the vehicle would not comply with requirements of FMVSS No. 105, "Hydraulic and Electrical Brake Systems".
Dealers will inspect the brake pipe union for signs of brake fluid and, if necessary, install a new brake pipe union. Owner notification began during late August 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020.
