2008 Chevrolet Express Owner Comments

problem #1

Express 8-cyl

While driving down the road at approximately 50 mph all warning lights on the dash lit up, the speedometer ceased to function, the radio cut out, the airbags were reporting as nonfunctional, the ABS system was reporting nonfunctional. Took vehicle to local mechanic who said the problem appeared to be caused by corrosion on the ABS sensor as well as corrosion on the power distribution cables into the fuse box. According to the mechanic GM was aware of the problem, as technical bulletins dating back to around 2005 were issued. He also stated should it happen at the time of an accident the air bags would likely fail to deploy, and the problem in general could lead to the possibility of a vehicle fire. According to him the entire problem could have been avoided by the manufacturer if they had made sure the cables were wrapped in shrink tube-thus eliminating the introduction of moisture to the electrical wires.
