ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

9/21/2017 - MONTGOMERYT, TX
WHILE DRIVING AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS, TRUCK HAD MASSIVE ELECTRICAL ISSUES WHICH CAUSED THE TRANSMISSION TO DOWNSHIFT TO 2ND GEAR. I ALMOST LOST CONTROL. WHILE THIS WAS HAPPENING, THE DOOR LOCKS CYCLED ON AND OFF OVER AND OVER AS WELL AS THE DOOR CHIMES COMING ON CONSTANTLY. HVAC DEFAULTED TO FULL HEAT FROM AIR CONDITIONING MODE. STABILITRACK SYSTEMS SHOWED INOPERATIVE AS WELL AS ABS SYSTEM. THE RAPID DOWNSHIFT FROM CRUISE TO 2ND GEAR CAUSED TIRES TO LOCK UP. I ALMOST LOST CONTROL. IF IT WOULD HAVE BEEN WET OR SLIPPERY, I WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO MAINTAIN CONTROL. THE VEHICLE ENGINE REVVED TO 4-5 THOUSAND RPM, AS IT DOWNSHIFTED AND MY SPEED DROPPED LIKE I WAS LOCKING THE BRAKES. I COULD HAVE BEEN REAR ENDED AND THE DECELERATION CAME ON WITH NO BRAKE LIGHTS, AS IT WAS HAPPENING WITH THE TRANSMISSION RAPID DOWNSHIFT. I CONTACTED GM VIA THEIR CHAT LINE, REFERENCE 8-3312054896. THEY TOLD ME IT WAS 8 YEARS OLD AND BOUGHT OVER-SEAS SO I WAS OUT OF LUCK FOR HELP WITH REPAIRS. IT IS PRESUMABLY CAUSED BY FAULTY BATTERY CABLES. THIS CONDITION IS REPORTED REPEATEDLY ON THE INTERNET I.E. YOUTUBE AMAZON ETC. THESE PARTS ARE NOT NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR COMPONENTS AND SINCE THEY CAUSE MASSIVE SAFETY RELATED CONTROL ISSUES THEIR MANUFACTURING QUALITY IS IN QUESTION. I WANT TO REPORT THIS ISSUE TO HELP PREVENT SOMEONE ELSE POSSIBLY HAVING AN INJURY TO THEIR LOVED ONES BECAUSE OF A KNOWN CONDITION THAT COULD BE REPAIRED WITH A 125.00 PART. I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER BUCKALEW CHEV IN CONROE TX. AND THEY SAID IT WAS THE BATTERY CABLES. I HAVE THAT INVOICE. I HAVE THE TRANSCRIPT FROM THE INITIAL CHAT WITH GM.

THIS IS AN AIRBAG CONCERN, THERE IS CRACKING IN THE DASH BOARD NEAR THE PASENGER AIRBAG. THIS STARTED TWO MONTHS AGO, BUT THE CRACK KEEPS DEVOLPING. I HAVE ALSO HEARD OTHER CASES OF 2007-2013 GM VEHICLES. I DON'T KNOW IF THIS AFFECTS THE AIRBAG. THIS IS A CONCERN BECAUSE I HAVE HEARD OTHER COMPLAINTS. THE VEHICLE WAS STATIONARY WHEN IT STARTED. I THINK IT'S BECAUSE OF THE WEAK PLASTIC.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

SAFETY BULLETING 14515 + CHASSIS ELECTRONIC CONTROL MODULE INTERNAL CONTAMINATION + 2007-2014. MY 2009 CHEVROLET SILVERADO 1500 IS HAVING A PROBLEM THAT THE ELECTRIC GOES OFF AND ON WHEN DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY AFTER HITTING THE BRAKE PEDAL. THIS IS INTERMITTENT AND DOES NOT HAPPEN ALL OF THE TIME. IT SEEMS VERY DANGEROUS, SOMETIMES WHEN IT HAPPENS THE DOOR LOCKS GO UP AND DOWN. I TALKED TO THE CHEVROLET DEALER IN TEMPE, FREEWAY CHEVROLET, AND THEY STATED MY TRUCK WAS NOT PART OF THE SAFETY RECALL BULLETIN 14515 EVEN THOUGH OTHER 2009 CHEVROLETR SILVERADO 1500S WERE PART OF THE RECALL. I WOULD THINK THAT CHEVROLET WOULD BE GLAD TO FIX IT BEFORE A CRASH, SORT OF LIKE TOYOTA SHOULD OF FIXED THEIR BRAKING AND ACCELERATION PROBLEM BEFORE SO MANY CRASHES. IS IT TRUE THAT EVEN IF THE TRUCK IS HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM AS THE RECALL, WHICH IS A SAFETY RECALL, IT MAY NOT BE COVERED FOR IT IS NOT LISTED?

AT ABOUT 90,000 MILES THE CRUISE CONTROL STOPPED WORKING AND WHEN IT IS WARM OUTSIDE THE PASSENGER'S SIDE DOOR ELECTRICAL LOCK WILL NOT WORK. IT TRIES TO PUSH LOCK TO UNLOCK POSITION, BUT ONLY PUSHES IT HALF WAY. I HAVE READ A LOT ABOUT THESE CONCERNS ON THIS MODEL VEHICLE. IS THIS 2 RECALLS? IT SHOULD BE. THIS IS NOT A CHEAP FIX.
