    GM recalls 814K pickups, cars to fix brake, battery problems

    https://www.detroitnews.com/story/bu...ms/2697727001/

    Detroit – General Motors is recalling more than 814,000 pickup trucks and cars in the U.S. to fix problems with electronic brake controls and battery cables.

    The first recall covers nearly 464,000 Cadillac CT6 sedans and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 pickup trucks from 2019. The company says in government documents that a software error can disable the electronic stability control and antilock brake systems. T hat can increase the risk of a crash.


    The second recall covers over 350,000 2019 and 2020 Silverado and Sierra 1500 pickups. A cable connecting the battery and alternator may have too much glue on it. That can interrupt the electrical connection and possibly cause the trucks to stall or even catch fire

    Hmm this post has no comments in over a week.

    Funny how the "All electric" company can't figure out a lead acid battery and simple alternator. Electric connections catching fire would not be fun with a giant GM quality lithium-ion battery!
