General Motors is recalling approximately 3,241 model-year 2021-2022 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD and 3500 HD trucks; and GMC Sierra 2500 HD and 3500 HD trucks due to a brake valve issue. In affected vehicles, the bolts that attach the brake pressure modulator valve assembly may not be adequately tightened and could fail to seal the two sub-assemblies, allowing water into the valve. Water in the brake pressure modulator valve could cause an electrical short circuit, increasing the risk of a fire.
GM will begin notifying owners on Nov. 15. Owners can call Chevrolet at 800-222-1020, GMC at 800-462-8782, or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will replace the brake pressure modulator valve assembly. Owners are advised to park outside and away from other structures until the recall repair is completed.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
