2000-2002 CHEVROLET TAHOE, SUBURBAN

 

2002 CHEVROLET AVALANCHE

 

1999-2002 GMC SIERRA

LOCATED IN THE SEVERE CORROSION AREAS LISTED BELOW

 

 

 

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

The breakpoints in this bulletin have been revised. Some vehicles were erroneously identified as registered in a corrosion area. A letter stating this, and removing them from the recall, was mailed to customers on April 21, 2006. Please discard all copies of bulletin 05068A, issued February 2006.

Condition

General Motors has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain 1999-2002 Chevrolet Silverado, 2000-2002 Chevrolet Tahoe, Suburban, 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche, 1999-2002 GMC Sierra, 2000-2002 GMC Yukon, Yukon XL vehicles located in the areas listed below. These vehicles may have a condition permitting corrosion to occur between the front hub/bearing assembly and the wheel speed sensor. If the brakes are applied while the vehicle is traveling at a speed of greater than 6 km/h (3.7 mph) but less than 16 km/h (10 mph), the corrosion may cause an unwanted anti-lock brake system (ABS) activation. If this condition occurred where stopping distance is limited, a crash could occur.

I already had this done. Do I need to get it checked out again?

Is it just the front that need to be cleaned? Can you elaborate on this??

 

I've got a 2000 in TN that does this

Hmmm, I bought my Yukon used last year, it's a 2000 and I have experienced the ABS activation while braking. Not having the VIN handy, I bought it in California and believe it's a CA vehicle, should I call a GMC/Chevy dealer and have it looked at? It's very troublesome coming to a stop sign. Doesn't do it all the time, just when I don't want it to :happysad:

 

Thanks

Most of the dealerships that I have dealt with are pretty good.

 

My truck was out of warranty and I was having trouble with the ABS just as the news about a recall leaked. I took it to the local dealership and they took care of it right away. I was not charged and have had no problems with it since.
