Component not known


98V242
On these extended cab, 4-wheel drive pickup trucks, the steering gear to frame attachment bolts were not properly tightened. Over time, these bolts can loosen, allowing the steering gear to move, resulting in an unresponsive steering feel and noise to the driver. If this condition is ignored, the bolts can wear or fatigue to the point of breaking or the bolts can back out. If all the bolts break or back out, the steering gear will separate from the frame, resulting in a loss of steering control.
Dealers will retighten the steering gear to frame bolts to the proper specifications. Owner notification began Oct. 6, 1998. 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.

04V129
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. 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.
Dealers will replace the cables. 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; Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339; or GMC at 1-866-996-9463.

04V045
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. 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 also require an increase in the applied brake pedal effort to achieve the same vehicle deceleration.
Dealers are to replace the hydro-boost relief valve. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during the second quarter of 2004. Owners may contact Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339; Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438; GMC at 1-866-996-9463; or Hummer at 1-866-486-6376.

01V125
Certain 2-wheel drive pickup trucks fail to comply with requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 120, "Tire Selection and Rims for Motor Vehicles other than Passenger Cars." The problem was caused by a computer error that resulted in the certification label listing tire size and inflation pressure information that differ from the tire size and the inflation pressure information for the tires on the vehicle. If the vehicle owner or someone servicing the vehicle inflates the tires according to the pressure specified on the label versus the appropriate pressure for the tires, the tires could be under-inflated or over-inflated depending on the tires mounted on the vehicle. If the tires are under-inflated, it could reduce the tread life of the tire, and the tire could degrade to a point of allowing sudden air loss. If the tires are over-inflated, it could reduce the tread life of the tire and increase susceptibility to road hazard damage. If sudden air loss or a road haz...
Owners will be provided with a new label and installation instructions. However, a dealer can install the label if the owner so desires. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during May 2001. Owners who do not receive the free label within a reasonable time should contact GMC at 1-800-462-8782 or Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020.
