Summary

General Motors, LLC (GM) is recalling certain 2003-2023 Chevrolet Express Cutaway and GMC Savana Cutaway incomplete vehicles equipped with wiring for an optional rear heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system.

Remedy

Dealers will properly seal the rear HVAC blower motor circuits at the left side B-pillar, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed May 22, 2023. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GMC’s number for this recall is N222386050.

Check if your Vehicle has a Recall

 


Condition

General Motors has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 2003-2023 Chevrolet Express Cutaway and GMC Savana Cutaway incomplete vehicles. These vehicles are equipped with an unused circuit that a final-stage manufacturer may elect to use to install an optional rear HVAC system. If the final-stage manufacturer leaves the circuit’s connectors or cut wires unsealed, exposure to moisture or contamination may, over time, cause corrosion. In rare cases, this could result in high current draw through the circuit at the vehicles’ lower left side B-pillar. Unintended release of excessive heat from the circuit may pose a risk of a vehicle fire and increase the risk of injury.

 

Correction

The rear HVAC blower motor circuit(s) at the left side B-pillar will be properly sealed to prevent moisture exposure.

Chronology :

On December 6, 2022, GM opened a product investigation to investigate two alleged fire incidents involving 2013 and 2014 Chevrolet Express Cutaway incomplete vehicles.

Between January 12, 2023, and March 27, 2023, GM’s investigator analyzed vehicle inspection reports from the two subject vehicles and retrieved and analyzed field data for all Express Cutaway and GMC Savana Cutaway (which shares a design with the Express) sold for model years 2005 through 2023, comprising approximately 167,000 units. Analysis of the field data, including legal claims, identified a total of eight potentially related complaints, six of which alleged fires. GM was provided notice of those fires on: 06/08/2018, 05/13/2019, 06/20/2019 (two incidents), 12/01/2020, and 12/12/2022.

GM’s investigation determined that an unsealed rear HVAC blower motor circuit could corrode over time, which in rare cases could cause excessive heat in the circuit that could lead to a fire. On March 30, 2023, GM’s Safety Field Action Decision Authority (SFADA) decided to conduct a safety recall. GM is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this condition. 2003 and 2004 model year vehicles use the same wiring design and are included in the recall population.
