Has anyone heard of a electrical fire in the dash of their 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. Had my High Country one month with 1012 miles on it when the fire happened. The ac blower motor melted and burned all the wires in the dash. Nothing like leaving a restaurant and seeing your new truck full of smoke and flames on the windshield.
Hello, Names Brian, I've come to this site to post about a new purchase of a 2017 Silverado LD 4x4 Crew Cab Rocky Ridge that I purchased in November of 2016 from a dealership in Northern Virginia. I purchased this stellar truck pre-lifted with the Altitude package from Chevrolet, outfitted by Rocky Ridge. I had the truck for just over three weeks when the truck caught fire in my driveway (approx 3000 miles). I contacted GM, my insurance company (GEICO), and the dealership where I purchased the vehicle the evening of the fire. Geico had an adjuster come out to my house the very next day to assess the damages. after an extensive assessment by Geico, it was then determined that the Driver cooling fan malfunctioned and was indeed the cause of the fire. Almost a week later GM sent out a Federal fire investigator to assess the damages, GM had my truck towed 5 miles to my nearest non-RR Chevy dealer to have the investigation done on "neutral" grounds. at this time I then called Rocky Ridge to inform them of the incident. GM took 30-days to conduct their investigation, meanwhile supplying me with a rental at no cost. Day 31, GM called and told me to return the rental asap as they are not responsible for the fire, they determined that the wiring harness from the bull bar mounted LED lights that RR installed is what had caused the fire. At this point RR sent out their investigator to see what the heck is going on. RR had their team out in two days, much shorter time frame than GM. RR did their investigation and called both me and Geico to tell us both that their wiring was in fact still intact and that the two fail-safes in place (fuses and relays), were not affected. Mind you GM has not provided any proof as to why they're not responsible, they refuse to release any substantial supporting documents as to why they are not responsible. RR has provided photo documentation and well as a written report supporting their decision. My truck, since its a custom truck falls into a higher bracket as far as totaling goes. Typically a standard Silverado LD/LT 4x4 would be totaled @ approx $25,000. My truck has a limit of $45,000 or 75% of the vehicle. Since the damages were contained to the engine bay and did not destroy the engine or any major accessories it was deemed repairable. The fire occurred on December 18 2016, today is March 20 2017 and I still don't have my truck back.

Hey everyone. I have (had) a 2014 Silverado Crew Cab 5.3v8. Truck has (had) 48K miles and followed the manufactures maintenance schedule, I loved my truck. I drove it for about an hour, went from south Houston to the Woodlands. It was parked and off then it all went to hell. I was interviewing at a company and had to cut the interview short. I came outside and found my truck burned to a crisp, its a total loss. Interesting thing, the day before I got the oil changed and the truck checked out at a Chevy dealership. I need some advice. How would I bring this up to the dealership? Any chance I can get the dealership or Chevy to compensate anything? any thoughts or advice would be awesome. Will post more pics in comments. RIP Black Panther. EDIT: Insurance is involved. Was just wondering if anything else could be done. Not looking to put the blame on the dealer or Chevy.
