18255 Tire Pressure Monitoring System Not Properly Calibrated – 2018 Chevrolet Express & GMC Savana

NHTSA Campaign Number: 18V509
Manufacturer General Motors LLC
Components TIRES
Potential Number of Units Affected 94

 

Incorrect TPMS Calibration/FMVSS 138

If the low tire pressure telltale is not illuminated at the correct tire pressure, the driver may have less time to react to a low-tire-pressure situation, which could affect the driver’s ability to control the vehicle in certain situations and could increase the risk of a crash.

 

Summary

General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain 2018 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vehicles with certain combinations of front-tire and gross-vehicle-weight option codes. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) may be incorrectly calibrated, causing the TPMS warning lamp to illuminate when tire pressure reaches 37 PSI, not 41 PSI. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 138, “Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems.”

Involved vehicles are marked “open” on the Investigate Vehicle History screen in GM Global Warranty Management system. This site should always be checked to confirm vehicle involvement prior to beginning any required inspections and/or repairs.

 

Condition
  • Some Takata airbag inflators are made with non-desiccated Phase Stabilised Ammonium Nitrate (PSAN) as a propellant. As it gets older, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can cause the airbag inflator propellant to degrade.
  • If the vehicle is involved in a collision, the airbag can go off with too much explosive force causing sharp metal fragments to shoot out and kill or seriously injure people in the vehicle.
Correction GM Holden dealers will replace the driver’s side frontal airbag module assembly.
