Summary

General Motors, LLC (GM) is recalling certain 2014 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Silverado 2500, Silverado 3500, Suburban, Tahoe, GMC Sierra 2500, Sierra 3500, Yukon, and Yukon XL vehicles originally sold, or ever registered, in the states of AL, CA, FL, GA, HI, LA, MS, SC, TX, PR, AS, GU, the MP, and VI or “Zone A.”

Additionally GM is recalling certain 2011-2014 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Silverado 2500, Silverado 3500, Suburban, Tahoe, GMC Sierra 2500, Sierra 3500, Yukon, Yukon XL and 2011-2013 Cadillac Escalade EXT, Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado 1500, and GMC Sierra 1500 vehicles originally sold, or ever registered, in the states of AZ, AR, DE, DC, IL, IN, KS, KY, MD, MO, NE, NV, NJ, NM, NC, OH, OK, PA, TN, VA, and WV or “Zone B.”

Additionally, GM is recalling certain 2010-2014 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Silverado 2500, Silverado 3500, Suburban, Tahoe, GMC Sierra 2500, Sierra 3500, Yukon, and Yukon XL and 2010-2013 Cadillac Escalade EXT, Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado 1500, and GMC Sierra 1500 vehicles originally sold, or ever registered, in the states of AK, CO, CT, ID, IA, ME, MA, MI, MN, MT, NH, NY, ND, OR, RI, SD, UT, VT, WA, WI, and WY or “Zone C.”

These vehicles are equipped with non-desiccated passenger frontal inflators containing phase-stabilized ammonium nitrate (PSAN) propellant. These inflators may explode due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to high absolute humidity, high temperatures, and high temperature cycling.

 

Remedy

GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front passenger air bag inflator with an alternate one, free of charge. Interim letters notifying owners of the safety risk are expected to be mailed beginning March 1, 2021. Second notification letters will be mailed once the remedy is available. Owner notification letters were mailed to 40 VIN owners on May 11, 2021. A second owner notification letter was mailed to all other owners on January 24, 2022. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020; Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006; and GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM’s number for this recall is N212328800.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

 

Check if your Vehicle has a Recall

 


Condition

TK Holdings Inc. (“Takata”) has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in the passenger-side frontal airbag inflators installed as original equipment in certain 2010 -2013 model year Cadillac Escalade EXT vehicles; certain Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado 1500; certain GMC Sierra 1500 vehicles; and certain 2010-2014 model year Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV vehicles; certain Silverado 2500/3500, Suburban, and Tahoe vehicles; and certain GMC Sierra 2500/3500, Yukon, and Yukon XL vehicles. The determination was made that the propellant in these inflators may degrade after long-term exposure to high humidity and temperature cycling, which could cause the inflator to rupture during a deployment. An inflator rupture may cause metal fragments to pass through the airbag and into the vehicle interior at high speed, which may result in injury or death to vehicle occupants.

 

Correction

Dealers will replace the passenger-side frontal airbag inflator.

GMT900 Front Passenger Airbag Recalls Dealer Frequently Asked Questions:

 

Q1) Why are there five different recall bulletins?  Why not one?

The United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) determined priority groups for all Takata airbag safety recalls.  These priority groups are determined by the age of the vehicle in combination with the heat and humidity levels where the vehicles have resided throughout their life.  The older the vehicle and the hotter and more humid the climate, the higher the priority group (Priority Group 6 is the highest priority group, Priority Group 10 is the lowest priority group).  Having separate recall bulletins allows GM to better manage the sending of owner letters allowing us to better manage the customer flow into the dealers and provide the parts necessary to make the repair.

 

Q2) Why are the Priority Groups numbered 6 through 10?  What happened to 1 through 5?

Priority groups 1 through 5 are associated with prior Takata airbag safety recalls that have already been launched on vehicles like the Pontiac Vibe and 2007-08 Silverado/Sierra 2500/3500.

 

Q3) When are the owner letters being sent?

GM began sending Advisory Letters (e.g. informing owners the repair is not available currently) February 22, 2021 to the owners in Priority Groups 6 through 10. GM began sending Parts Letters (e.g. informing owners’ parts are available and to contact their dealer) to the owners in Priority Group 6 for light duty pickup and sport utility vehicles March 1, 2021. GM began sending Parts Letters to the owners in Priority Group 6 for heavy duty pickup owners beginning June 1, 2021. GM sent Parts Letters to all owners in Priority Group 7 beginning July 1, 2021. GM began sending Parts Letters to all owners in Priority Group 8 beginning September 20, 2021, with Priority Group 9 following on October 1, 2021. GM will begin sending Parts Letters to all owners in Priority Group 10 starting on January 14, 2022.

 

Q4) Why am I not able to run these new recalls through the Maxis Dealer Field Action Report System in Global Connect for Priority Groups 7 to 10?

All VINs involved in Priority Groups 6-10 are now in “Open” status and will now be visible in the Maxis Dealer Field Action Report System.

 

Q5) Can we repair vehicles when the IVH status is “Incomplete-Limited or No Parts” for Priority Groups 7 to 10?

All VINs involved in Priority Groups 6-10 are now in “Open” status and may be repaired to close the recall.

 

Q6) What if my dealer is not located in a hot and humid area and my customers have received Advisory Letters for Priority Groups 7 to 10?  Can I still perform the recall repairs and  close the recall for my customers?

All VINs involved in Priority Groups 6-10 are now in “Open” status and may be repaired to close the recall.

 

Q7) Why are the old recall bulletins gone (e.g. 49151, 49152, and N202324210)?

As part of GM’s agreement with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), GM agreed to launch five new recall bulletins for Priority Groups 6 through 10.

 

Q8) What if I have a job card that was opened under one of the old recall bulletins?  How do I get paid?  How does the recall get closed? A8)

The labor codes in the three old bulletins are still valid even though the VINs have been moved to their new recall population.  Submit your warranty claims according to the terms of the old bulletin.  GM will ensure that the repaired VIN gets closed in the NEW recall.  Please submit all warranty claims promptly.

 

Q9) The bulletins for Priority Groups 7 to 10 state the following: 

“Important: * Part # 84255088 Front Passenger Airbag Inflator Kit (Single Stage – HD pickup trucks) is in very limited supply and will be replaced by a new service part in the very near future. Once the new part is released, part # 84255088 will be obsolete and unusable for this field action. These parts cannot be returned due to their hazardous goods shipping restrictions. DO NOT order this part for shelf stock in your inventory, this is a field fix part only. Only order this part for a customer vehicle that is being serviced”.

Does this mean if I install part number 84255088 in a 2500/3500 pickup, the recall will have to be done again?

No, the recall will not have to be done again.  The recall will be closed with the use of part 84255088.  GM put this comment in the bulletins to encourage dealers to not order this part number for shelf stock because a replacement part is in development now.  If you have a truck in your used inventory or a customer vehicle that needs to be repaired, part 84255088 is acceptable to use.

 

Q10) Can old part 84255088 be installed in a Priority Group 6 heavy duty vehicle now that the new part is available?

The job card date will determine which HD part and labor code to use.

For job cards opened prior to June 1, 2021 the old part number 84255088 and labor code 9105357 must be used in order to avoid claim rejection. This part number does not require the serial number to be recorded on the job card.

For job cards opened June 1, 2021 or later, the new HD part numbers 84594241 (airbag kit) and 84594242 (bracket) and labor code 9105713 must be used in order to avoid claim rejection. Vehicles repaired with the new part number 84594241 MUST have the serial number of the new part number recorded on the job card.

 

Q11) Can new part 84594241 (airbag inflator kit) be installed on a heavy-duty vehicle in Priority Groups 7 to 10?

No. The new part number 84594241 is associated labor code 9105713 and can only be used on Priority Group 6 heavy duty vehicles at this time. The claims will reject for Priority Groups 7 to 10.

 

Q12) Why is XPO Logistics is not returning my phone calls to arrange pickup of  my used inflators?

Due to COVID, the XPO Logistics team is working remote and are unable to man their phone line at this time.  If you need to schedule an airbag return, please contact XPO Logistics at the following email address:  SCFIELDACTION.14305@XPO.COM.  GM will inform dealers via Global Connect when XPO Logistics is back on site and monitoring the phone number included in the return instructions.

1 Associated Investigation

Air Bag Inflator Rupture
NHTSA ID: EA15001
Dated opened: February 24, 2015

The Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) opened PE14-016 in June 2014 based on six inflator rupture incidents involving consumer owned vehicles produced by five vehicle manufacturers. All six vehicles were operated in Florida or Puerto Rico at the time of the rupture and for the majority of their service life, and were equipped with inflators produced by Takata, a tier-one supplier of automotive air bag systems.

During the course of PE14-016, ODI determined that five additional vehicle manufacturers used inflators of a similar design and vintage also supplied by Takata. No evidence of field failures was found in vehicles produced by these five additional manufacturers. Nonetheless, at ODI’s insistence, all 10 vehicle manufacturers initiated a regional recall within approximately two weeks of the opening of the investigation. The regions recalled initially included Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, areas with high absolute humidity and climatic conditions believed to be a significant factor in the inflator ruptures. As part of the recall actions, inflators removed from remedied vehicles are to be returned to Takata for testing.

Takata’s initial test results on passenger inflators from remedied vehicles indicated a much higher than anticipated rupture frequency for inflators returned from Florida. Accordingly ODI requested all 10 manufacturers expand the regional recalls for passenger inflators to include other geographic areas where high absolute humidity conditions exist, including the Gulf States and other coastal areas. Takata’s testing of the passenger inflators to date continues to indicate this geographic area as having the highest risk, with no ruptures occurring from inflators returned from outside the expanded recall regions. During PE14-016 four additional passenger inflator field events occurred, all in vehicles from the same expanded geographic region.

Also during PE14-016 four additional driver inflator field events occurred including two in vehicles from regions not known for high absolute humidity, specifically California and North Carolina. Accordingly, ODI requested all five of the affected vehicle manufacturers currently using the subject Takata driver inflators expand to nationwide recalls. Significantly, neither of the affected vehicle manufacturers or Takata provided any explanation to account for these two driver air bag inflator ruptures outside the area of high absolute humidity. Takata testing of returned driver inflators indicates a lower rupture frequency as compared to passenger inflator testing. All test ruptures reported by Takata to date have occurred on inflators returned from high absolute humidity areas.

The investigation now includes all manufacturers and vehicles known to be affected at this time. ODI’s investigation will focus on, among other things, root cause analysis, other potential defect consequences, identification of affected vehicles scope, and adequacy of the remedy.

The five ODI reports cited above can be reviewed online at https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/SearchNHTSAID under the following identification numbers: 10537899, 10568848, 10585224, 10605877, 10651492
