5/16/2014 - HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NY
VEHICLE WAS STOPPED, WAITING TO ENTER ROAD, DASHBOARD LIT UP LIKE A CHRISTMAS TREE AND SMOKE STARTED POURING FROM UNDER THE HOOD. TURNED VEHICLE OFF, CALLED A TOW TRUCK AND IT WAS TAKEN TO OUR MECHANIC. THE SEALED INTERNAL FUSE BOX AND WIRING HARNESS CONECTIONS HAD CAUGHT FIRE AND BURNED, DAMAGING THE MAIN FUSE PANEL THAT COSTS $450 TO REPLACE AND THE MAIN WIRING HARNESS CONNECTED TO THE FUSE BOX. I HAVE READ SEVERAL COMPLAINTS FILED BY OTHER SILVERADO OWNERS FOR THE SAME REASON BUT THEIR VEHICLES COMPLETELY BURNED TO THE GROUND. HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE TO INJURED OR KILLED BY THIS BEFORE THERE IS A RECALL? PLEASE HELP!

THE CAB TO OPERATOR COMMUNUCATION STARTED SLOWLY DIMINISHING. EVENTUALLY ALL AUDIBLE BEEPS, DINGS AND MUSIC ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE CAB WERE SHUTOFF. THE SPEED CONTROL CRUISE WAS NOT ACTIVATION, BUT THE BUTTON WOULD LIGHT UP. CURRENTLY THE LEFT SIDE OF THE TRUCK, IN THE CAB, IS OUT OF POWER. I AM CONCERNED, DOES THIS AFFECT THE AIR BAG SYSTEM TOO? THE TRUCK DOES A SELF DIAGNOSTICS MONTHLY AND NO ISSUES WERE NOTED, BUT THEY WERE OBVIOUS ISSUES THAT A DIAGNOSTIC SHOULD HAVE PICKED UP A NOTEABLE CHANGE. THE LIGHTING ISSUE I EXPERIENCED WERE WITH EACH TAILLIGHT. I WOULD RANDOMLY BLOW TAIL LIGHT BULDS. A CLOSER LOOK SHOWED CORRSION AND OBVIOUS SHORTING, BUT NO FUSE WAS FAULTED. BULD WAS BURNED AT THE CONNECTORS. FURTHER REVIEW IT WAS NOTICED TAHT EACH TAIL LIGHT HAD WATER IN THE BOTTOM. TRAVELING CASED THE WATER TO SHORT OUT AND DAMAGE THE BULB, LEAVING ME WITH NO REAR LIGHTING RANDOMLY. I HAVE SINCE DRILLED HOLES IN THE BOTTOM OF EACH TAIL LIGHT AS THERE IS NOT WAY TO REMOVE THE MOISTURE. I HAVE ALSO INSPECTED THE BULB SEALS AND FIND THEY ARE FIRMLY PRESSING ON TO THE SEALING SURFACES, WHICH ARE CLEAN AND FREE FROM ROAD DUST AND GRIME...PLUS THEY ARE HIDDEN INSIDE THE BODY OF THE TRUCK. IN SUMMARY, I WOULD LIKE TO RECEIVE SOME LEVEL OF DETAIL REGARDING THE ELECTRICAL ISSUE, FOCUSING ON HOW IT CAN BE REPAIRED. REGARDING THE LIGHTING, THIS IS CONCERNING AND SHOULD BE A CONSIDERATION FOR RISK ASSESSMENT DURING DESIGN.
