2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD Recall
Jul 7, 2014GM has announced that they are recalling certain model year 2014 and 2015 Chevy Silverado HD vehicles equipped with a base radio and a internal amplifier. They stated that the radios in the affected vehicles may become inoperative, and as a result, there would be no audible chime to notify the driver if the door is opened with the key in the ignition or no audible seat belt warning indicating the seat belts had not been buckled. Without an audible indicator, the driver may not be aware that the drivers door is open while the key is in the ignition, increasing the risk of a vehicle rollaway. Additionally, there would be no reminder that the drivers or front seat passengers seat belt is not buckled, which would increase the risk of injury in a crash. GM will notify owners, and dealers will update the radio software, free of charge. Owners may contact GM at 1-800-462-8782.
