2000 GMC Jimmy
Utility 2D SLS 2WD
Frontal Moderate Overlap Test Results
|US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID:||99V220|
|Potential Number Of Units Affected:||3947|
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 GMC at 1-800-462-8782.
