  1. 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe ELECTRICAL SYSTEM NHTSA Campaign #14V070000

    • Date Announced: FEBRUARY 11, 2014
    • Vehicles Affected: 22

    Summary: Monroe Truck Equipment (Monroe) is recalling certain model year 2006, 2008 and 2009 Chevrolet C7500 vehicles, 2005-2006 Chevrolet Tahoe vehicles, and 2009 Ford F-350, and F-450 vehicles, equipped with Sure Power-brand battery equalizers or DC-DC converters containing a particular epoxy sealing, aka 'potting', compound. The specific potting compound used in the subject products for insulation was found to be capable of conducting electricity after being exposed to heat.

    Consequence: Once electrically conductive, the material is capable of melting and burning, increasing the risk of a fire.

    Actions: Monroe will notify owners, and Sure Power will replace the equalizers or converters, free of charge. The recall began on March 24, 2014. Owners may contact Monroe at 1-608-328-8127.

  2. 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe WHEELS:CAP/COVER/HUB NHTSA Campaign #07E106000

    • Date Announced: DECEMBER 17, 2007
    • Vehicles Affected: 130,000

    Summary: Certain federal-mogul replacement wheel hub assemblies with the brand names: National, Carquest P/nos. 515020, 515021, 515025, 515053, 515054, 515059, and 515060, shipped between January 23, 2006, and December 20, 2007, sold for light duty and medium duty trucks. The inboard retention nut used to maintain hub bearing assembly can loosen resulting in an ABS light indication, noise, and/or wheel separation.

    Consequence: Wheel separation can result in a vehicle crash.

    Actions: Federal-mogul will notify customers and will replace the hub assembly free of charge. The recall began on February 7, 2008. Owners can contact federal-mogul toll-free at 877-489-6659.

  3. 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe AIR BAGS:FRONTAL NHTSA Campaign #06V417000

    • Date Announced: OCTOBER 31, 2006
    • Vehicles Affected: 794

    Summary: Certain vehicles originally built with cloth seats that were equipped with an automatic air bag passenger sensing system and later reupholstered with aftermarket leather seat cover kits are involved. Testing has indicated that the aftermarket leather seat covers can cause the passenger sensing system to malfunction.

    Consequence: If the passenger sensing system malfunctions, the front air bag on the passenger side may be disabled when it should be enabled, or enabled when it should be disabled. In either case, in the event of a crash that requires air bag deployment, a front passenger's level of injury may be increased.

    Actions: Because a replacement leather seat cover that is compatible with the passenger sensing system is not available, General Motors (GM) will repurchase these vehicles in accordance with the terms stated in GM's letter to owners. The recall began on November 6, 2006. Owners should contact GM at 1-877-477-1022 to begin the process of repurchasing their vehicle.

  4. 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE NHTSA Campaign #06E043000

    • Date Announced: MAY 19, 2006
    • Vehicles Affected: 88,303

    Summary: Certain replacement fuel filters, fram brand name P/N G3727, with date codes X52911 through X60801 sequentially or X600141 and a Mexico country or origin marking on the fuel filter housing manufactured from October 18, 2005, through March 21, 2006, sold for use on the vehicles listed above and on certain school buses. (to see the school bus engine sizes, click on "document search" and then "bus applications"). the connector on the fuel filter was not manufactured to honeywell's specification. As a result, the O-ring may not seat correctly on the fuel line.

    Consequence: This condition may cause an inadequate seal at the connection, potentially leading to a fuel leak. In the presence of an ignition source, a fire could occur.

    Actions: Honeywell will notify owners and replace the fuel filters free of charge. The recall began on October 18, 2006. Owners may contact fram customer service at 1-800-890-2075 (option 1).

  5. 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe SEAT BELTS:REAR NHTSA Campaign #05V163000

    • Date Announced: APRIL 22, 2005
    • Vehicles Affected: 1,359,824

    Summary: On certain crew cab pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles, the 2nd row center occupant seat belt routing may make it difficult to position the lap portion of the safety belt low around the hips of occupants, especially smaller occupants, seated in this position. Appropriate use of a child seat or booster seat, as recommended for small children, does improve the fit condition for this user group. In addition to instructions on proper infant and young child restraint (with child seats or boosters), special verbiage for restraining older child is included in the owner's manual. Also, the suggested seat belt fit/routing for adults, irrespective of seating position, is described in the owner's manual text.

    Consequence: A lap portion of the seat belt routing that is not low and snug on the hips can allow the lap belt to ride up on an occupant's abdomen instead of fitting low around their hipbones, and therefore, can expose them to more risk of abdominal and internal organ injury.

    Actions: Dealers will cut open the guide loop, remove a portion of the loop, and then the remaining two sides should be folded over and secured with a retainer free of charge. The recall began on July 21, 2005. Owners may contact Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339, Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438, GMC at 1-866-996-9463, or Hummer at 1-800-732-5493.

  6. 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:PEDALS AND LINKAGES NHTSA Campaign #05V103000

    • Date Announced: MARCH 18, 2005
    • Vehicles Affected: 707

    Summary: On certain sport utility vehicles, the brake pedal pushrod retainer may be missing. If the retainer is missing, the brake booster pushrod could disengage from the brake pedal.

    Consequence: This could result in a loss of brakes which could result in a crash.

    Actions: Dealers will inspect the vehicles for the brake pedal pushrod retainer and install one if it is missing free of charge. The manufacturer began contacting owners by telephone on March 10, 2005. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438 or GMC at 1-866-996-9463.

  7. 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe POWER TRAIN:MANUAL TRANSMISSION:SHIFT PATTERN INDICATOR NHTSA Campaign #05V055000

    • Date Announced: FEBRUARY 14, 2005
    • Vehicles Affected: 7,194

    Summary: Certain sport utility vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission, fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 102, "transmission shift lever sequence, starter interlock and transmission braking effect." Under certain vehicle starting conditions, the shift lever position indicator located in the instrument panel cluster may not illuminate. If the shift lever position indicator does not illuminate, the driver may not know which gear the vehicle is in.

    Consequence: The vehicle may move in an unintended direction resulting in possible injury to others outside of the vehicle.

    Actions: Dealers will reprogram the instrument panel cluster free of charge. The recall began on February 14, 2005. Owners may contact Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339, Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438, and GMC at 1-866-996-9463.
