General Motors stated on Thursday it is issuing recalls for over 900,000 vehicles globally in two separate campaigns to address brake software issues and fire risks.
The largest American automaker is recalling over 550,000 2019 light-duty Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Cadillac CT6 and GMC Sierra 1500 vehicles because of a potential software glitch that could disable car brake systems and notifications.
The error, which GM stated was rare, may result in the vehicle’s electronic stability control or anti-lock brake system becoming disabled. GM stated the car’s diagnostic system will not illuminate the instrument cluster alert. Dealers will reflash the software to address the concern.
The automaker is also recalling over 400,000 2019-2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 trucks because battery positive cable rings may have been produced with excessive glue, potentially resulting in a fire risk or stalling.
The automaker dealers will inspect vehicles for glue or other pollution and replace damaged components if necessary.
One fire has been reported and no injuries associated with the campaign. Some vehicles are covered by both recalls. The recall was prompted by a report of a stall by a GM worker in Canada.
The recalls consists of 814,000 vehicles in the United States.
