US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID: 01V107
Potential Number Of Units Affected: 301


Summary:
Certain sport utility vehicles were built with a misrouted positive battery cable assembly that could come in contact with the steering shaft universal joint. Over time, this contact could cause a wear-through of the cable assembly conduit and cable insulation, exposing the wire core and resulting in intermittent electrical shorting. This could result in erratic movement of the voltage gauge or total battery discharge in a few hours. Also, the cable insulation and conduct could ignite if enough current is discharged at the point of contact, resulting in an underhood fire.

Remedy:
Dealers will inspect the positive battery cable for proper routing and re-route the cable in necessary. The cable will also be inspected for wear of the conduit and cable insulation, and will be replaced if necessary. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began April 23, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact GMC at 1-800-462-8782.

Dates of Manufacture:
August - October 2000

Summary:
On certain sport utility vehicles equipped with rearward folding head restraints on the second row seats, two potential pinch points exist on each of the folding head restraints when the restraints are folded rearward as the seatback is folded down. If a person were to insert his or her finger into the pinch point when the head restraint folds, it could trap and pinch the finger, causing injury.

Remedy:
Dealers will install protective covers over the pinch points. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during November 2002. Owners should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020, GMC at 1-800-462-8782, or Cadillac at 1-800-458-8006.

Dates of Manufacture:
