Summary Certain light duty pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles have loose or missing rear wheelhouse plugs. Under certain vehicle operating conditions, exhaust gases can flow forward and accumulate in the rear wheelhouse. These gases could flow into the passenger compartment if the plug is missing or loose and could cause possible illness, unconsciousness, or death.
Summary Some pickup and utility trucks have an internal component in the outboard seat belt retractors for the 2nd and 3rd row of seats that could be cracked. With repeated actuation of the locking mechanism, the crack could spread to the point such that the seat belt would no longer lock. In a crash, increased occupant injury could result from the no-lock condition.

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.
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.
