SEAT BELTS

7/28/2014 - ROBBINSVILLE, NC
I WAS DRIVING ON A 2 LANE ROAD WITH HEAVY WOODS ON EACH SIDE AND A DEER RAN OUT OF THE WOODS IN FRONT OF ME. I HIT THE DEER WITH THE FRONT OF MY EQUINOX. I IMMEDIATELY SMELLED THE FUMES FROM THE AIR BAG BUT DID NOT SEE WHERE THE AIR BAD DEPLOYED. ONSTAR CAME ON AND ASKED IF I WAS OK, THAT THEY WERE ADVISED MY AIR BAG HAD DEPLOYED. THE IN DASH SENSOR IN MY CAR ALSO ALERTED THAT THE AIR BAG HAD BEEN DEPLOYED. MY STEERING WHEEL APPEARED NORMAL, BUT A SMALL GAP AROUND THE AIR BAG COVER. IT APPEARS THAT MY AIR BAG HAD ATTEMPTED TO DEPLOY BUT THE BAG ITSELF DID NOT INFLATE. THE DAMAGE WAS FILLED ON INSURANCE AND GM WAS NOTIFIED OF THE INCIDENT DUE TO THE FACT THAT MY AIR BAG DID NOT FUNCTION CORRECTLY. THE VEHICLE HAS BEEN TAKEN TO THE DEALERSHIP WHERE IT WAS PURCHASED TO HAVE THE AIR BAG & SENSORS REPLACED. GM DID OPEN A CLAIM WITH MY COMPLAINT AND SAID THAT IT WOULD BE 20 TO 30 DAYS FOR AN INVESTIGATION TO BE DONE.

ENGINE

5/31/2014 - MASON, OH
I WAS DRIVING ON I-71N AROUND 3:30 ON MY WAY HOME DURING THE SPEED LIMIT OF 65 WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN THE DISPLAY SHOW AN ENGINE LIGHT AND A MESSAGE SAYING REDUCING POWER MODE AND THE SPEED DROP TO 20 EVEN THOUGH I HAND MY FOOT ON THE GAS ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR. LUCKILY I HAD JUST MOVE LANE FROM IN FRONT OF A 18 WHEELER AND WAS ABLE TO PULL OVER STILL IN DANGER BECAUSE THE LANE I MOVED TO STILL HAD TRAFFIC COMING. I TURN THE CAR OFF SINCE IT WOULD NOT GO AND SIT FOR ABOUT 5 MINUTES. I STARTED IT UP AND WAS ABLE TO MAKE IT TO THE DEALER SERVICE. THEY FOUND THAT FOLLOWING CODE P2101, P2119. THEY PERFORM DIAGNOSTIC TEST ALL WIRING TO THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR TEST OK REPLACE THROTTLE BODY ASSEMBLY AND RECHECK FAULTS, PASSED. WHAT THEY TOLD ME IS THAT THE SENSOR DID NOT KNOW I WAS GIVING THE ENGINE GAS SO IT REDUCE THE ENGINE SPEED. THIS IS SCARY TO KNOW IT COULD HAPPEN AND I COULD HAVE BEEN INJURED OR EVEN KILL. I WAS LUCKY.
