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 The Printed Circuit Board (PCB) may not have been secured properly into the casing of the Airbag Control Module, also known as the Sensing & Diagnostics Module (SDM).

In very specific side crash event scenarios, the condition may result in slightly delayed deployment of the side thorax and side curtain airbags. In the event of a very severe pot-hole strike or similar, there may also be a potential for unintended airbag deployment to occur. This may pose a risk of increased injury to a vehicle occupant.

Correction Replacement of SDM as outlined in the service procedure section below.

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 General Motors Canada has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in some 2012-2014 model year Chevrolet Orlando vehicles. Melting snow and water containing road salt may enter the vehicle and corrode a splice connection in the Electric Power Steering (EPS) Module circuit located in the main body wiring harness which runs along the driver’s door garnish trim area. Corrosion at this connection may lead to increased resistance in the EPS circuit which may result in an intermittent or permanent loss of EPS assist. Loss of EPS assist would increase steering effort and increase the risk of a crash resulting in injury and/or damage to property. The condition will set the power steering malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) in the IP.
Correction Dealers are to seal the affected connection or, if corroded, repair as instructed
