01V283
Some sport utility vehicles were built with a range shift collar in the transmission transfer case that contains cracks. This condition could result in a complete fracture of the range shift collar and subsequent loss of vehicle forward and reverse gears, and the inability to maintain "Park" position. Among other things, this increases the risk of a vehicle crash resulting from unintended movement of a parked vehicle.
Dealers will replace the transfer cases and update the control module calibration. The manufacturer reported that owner notification was to begin during October 2001. 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.

01V334
On certain sport utility vehicles equipped with 4-wheel drive, the calibration of the transfer case control module could cause insufficient high-speed gear engagement. If the gear is not engaged, the vehicle can roll when the transmission is in "park," and a crash could result without warning.
Dealers will update the transfer case control module calibration to increase gear engagement. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Nov. 6, 2001. 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.

02V121
This is an expansion of an earlier recall (02V-121). On certain sport utility vehicles, a fuel filter fitting can become disconnected. If this were to occur while attempting to start the engine, a no-start condition would result and fuel would be pumped out the fuel filter onto the ground. If the fitting becomes disconnected while the vehicle is in motion, the engine would stop due to inadequate fuel supply and cause a loss of power steering assist. If an ignition source were present, fuel leakage from a disconnected fuel filter fitting could result in a fire.
Dealers will replace the fuel filter quick connect retainers. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was expected to begin during September 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020, GMC at 1-800-462-8782, or Oldsmobile at 1-800-442-6537.

02V222
Certain passenger cars, minivans, and sport utility vehicles have an air bag inflator on the driver's side that could fracture at a weld during a deployment. Pieces of the inflator could strike and injure vehicle occupants, and the air bag cushion would not inflate fully, reducing the capability of the bag to protect the driver.
Dealers will inspect and replace, if necessary, the air bag module assembly on the driver's side. The manufacturer reported that owner notification was expected to begin during September 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Buick at 1-800-521-7300, Cadillac at 1-800-458-8006, Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020, GMC at 1-800-462-8782, Oldsmobile at 1-800-442-6537, or Pontiac at 1-800-762-2737.

02V273
Certain sport utility vehicles are missing welds on the rear floor plan. In a crash, missing welds could degrade performance of the third row seat and safety belt anchorage, and occupants could receive greater injuries.
Dealers will inspect the vehicle for missing welds. If missing welds are found, GM will exchange the vehicle for an equivalent vehicle or provide a refund of the purchase price. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Oct. 4, 2002. Owners should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC at 1-800-462-8782

Component not known


03V151
Certain sport utility vehicles were built with a left-front brake pipe with a circumferential score at a random location along the length of the pipe as the result of the manufacturing process. If the brake pipe partially or fully fractured, brake pedal travel would immediately increase and front brake performance would be reduced, a crash could occur.
Dealers will replace the left-front brake pipe. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule for this campaign. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020, GMC at 1-800-462-8782, or Oldsmobile at 1-800-442-6537.

03V250
Certain minivans, passenger cars, and sport utility vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 225, "Child Restraint Anchorage System." The owner's manual does not explain the meaning of the location symbols for the lower universal anchorage system.
Owners will be provided with a supplement for their owner's manual. It describes and shows the location symbols for the child restraint anchors that are located in the vehicle. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during August 2003. Owners may contact Buick at 1-866-608-8080, Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339, Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438, GMC at 1-800-996-9463, Pontiac at 1-800-620-7668, or Oldsmobile at 1-800-630-6537.

04V046
The windshield wipers on these sport utility vehicles may fail to turn on, unexpectedly stop working, fail to turn off/on by themselves (moisture sensitive wiper system), or the washer pump may operate continuously because water can enter the wiper module and either cause a short circuit or corrosion of components within the module. Driver visibility could be reduced, which could result in a crash.
Dealers will cover the windshield wiper module vent hole with a patch. Also, the wiper motor, circuit board, and electrical connector will be inspected for signs of water intrusion and/or corrosion and be replaced as required. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during the third quarter of 2004. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438; GMC at 1-866-996-9463; or Oldsmobile at 1-800-630-6537.
