US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID: 99V220
Potential Number Of Units Affected: 3947


Summary:
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".

Remedy:
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.

Dates of Manufacture:
March - July 1999

Models Involved:
S10 Truck, Sonoma, Jimmy, Blazer
