The answer is looking like "yes". General Motors is actively preparing "contingency plans" in case the automaker has to issue another round of recalls related to the Takata Airbag scandal. According to Reuters and Yahoo, a spokesman for the company acknowledged yesterday that the GMT-900 based Chevrolet Silverado, Tahoe, Suburban, GMC Sierra, Yukon, and Cadillac Escalade would be among the next vehicles recalled if the issue widened.

Engine Light, IAT sensor: codes P0113 and P0228

Gen V Small Block Engine, Drivetrain, & Exhaust Today, 09:29 AM
Weird thing happening, my check engine light came on and my scanner pulls P0113 and P0228. P0113 is IAT sensor and P0228 is Fuel and Air Metering.   I had to remove the airbox last night to replace a headlight, which requires me to unplug the IAT sensor right on the airbox. And then when I took the truck for a drive, I noticed the engine fans are running at full blast and then the engine light came on (solid light). Immediately turned off the truck, hooked up the sensor and checked the codes. Saw they weren't "hazardous" and drove to work.   Why would unplugging the IAT sensor cause a code to be thrown? I checked and made sure to reconnect it securely. Its on there fine.   And why are the engine fans going full blast?   Thanks guys.

First, sorry if this has been discussed, but a quick search didn't provide me any results.   So the TV ads are running rampant with year-end sales and so on... I noticed something that I can't believe I've missed it until now.  The view is of a 1500 Denali, 3/4 view where the front and driver's side is viewable, under a bunch of light bulbs.  The grille surround, front bumper insert, mirror caps and door handles are color matched!  Anyone else notice that?   **Not the greatest quality, but here is a screen cap I found on the intarwebz:   Why isn't that an option when building the vehicle?  That is exactly what I'd do to a Denali if I end up getting one.

I get a lot of air flow when choosing vent or feet or defrost. I have watched movement of the actuator located under the drivers side dash and it moves freely stopping at different points. Is there another actuator for the inbetween modes.   Thanks in advance for the help,   Bryan

Condensation on the inside of windshield

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins Today, 08:19 AM
Anyone had this issue. Haven't had a chance to post this since it happened a few days ago. but the other morning went out and my windshield was completed covered in condensation-- on The INSIDE!!!! 30 years of car ownership this is a first. Turned defrost on and it dried up pretty quick, but how does this happen. Even if vents from air system were left open there shouldn't be enough to cause this amount of moisture to build! This has to parallel the outside odor issue we continue to have as well. Has anyone else had this issue, is it possible their is a bad seal on the windshield? Questionable though because I've not seen leaking from car washes.... Thoughts please

2015 Suburban - noise in driver side center console

2015 Chevrolet Suburban/Tahoe, GMC Yukon, & Cadillac Escalade 20 Dec 2014
New to the forum, please forgive me if this topic has already been covered.  A month after purchase (purchased 7/10/14), I discovered a rattling noise (sounds like someone doing morse code) coming from the console, if you are sitting in the driver's seat, it's to the right of the driver's right leg.  There's a little storage compartment there (very narrow, sometimes I put my iPhone in it, not much else will fit) and if I push on it, the noise will go away.     About 3 weeks ago, I had the dealer look at it while my husband was in for an oil change, well of course the sound could not be duplicated.  The service guy told us that they found a lose antenna and they taped it down.  There is no way, an antenna is causing the rattling, sounds more like a screw or metal plate moving.  On the way home from the dealership, while driving 75 mph on the interstate, the rattling began again. Ugh.  I'm a busy mom to 3, and have not had the time to take it back in.  However, we are leaving on Christmas Eve and driving to see family 500 miles away.  I cannot listen to the rattle for that long of a trip.  So I'm taking the Suburban in on Monday morning to try to have it repaired.   The...

2014 vs 2015 changes I've noticed with my loaner....

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 20 Dec 2014
So, my 2014 GMC Sierra SLT is in the shop getting the radio replaced and the peek in update done.  They gave me a 2015 GMC SLT to drive.   I have noticed several changes...   The radio:  the 2015 doesn't have HD.  Also, radio displays the name of the XM station when you make it a favorite (2014 just had the number of the station).  I am hoping the updated radio I am receiving will have this feature.   Also, the new 4g wifi.  I don't use it, but it could be cool.   The seats:  the 2015 seems to have softer seats (both this one and mine have leather).   different buttons:  The 2015 has lights not he switches for the cargo lights and parking sensors (right on end of them, to let you know when they are on).   Cup holder insert:  I have the bench with the folding center console.  The rubber cup holder insert in mine is just flat black.  In 2015, it now has a type of diamond pattern to it.  Personally, i think the pattern would hold dirt and stains.   Sliding rear window:  this one has it and it works!

New Dash Cam - Black Box G1w - Want to hardwire, need help!

Just got my black box g1w in, only came with a cigarette lighter plug but I want to hardwire to a connection that only gives it power when ignition is turned on.

Seat Movement Issues

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins 01 Oct 2013
I had my truck into the dealership a few weeks ago for seat movement issues and it seems they added two small clips to fasten the seat cushion to the frame. At first it seemed it may be better (I think it was psychological), but I now have movement in the seat again. I see the clips are still there, but I get seat movement (lateral and forwards/backwards, not up and down) in turns and braking. It definitely feels like the bracket to me as the movement is small but sudden and clunks, not smooth like the cushion is sliding. Every time I get in the seat clicks/clunks a little in a manner that makes it seem as if it is taking up the slack in the bracket bushings or pivot points.   Anyone who has had the actual seat bracket replaced have any better luck fixing the issue?   is it the same bracket without a fix to address the slop in the bracket?   This is ridiculous to have this happen on such an expensive vehicle. I know it is a new model blah blah blah, but things like this fall under the basic fundamentals. Figure out how to make a seat!!! Venting over....Thanks for the help and otherwise I love the truck so far, but get frustrated over such elementary things going wrong.
