General Motors is recalling an estimated 2016-2018 30,289 Chevrolet Express full-size vans and GMC Sierra pickups equipped with a single, manual, rear climate control module for potential overheating problems.
Specifically, if the temperature is set to maximum heat or the mode knob is set to maximum floor vent and an electrical short happens, components housed inside the module may overheat. In the event of overheating, there is an increased chance of a fire in the vehicle’s headliner.
To fix the problem, G.M. will notify owners, and dealers will remove the electoral insulation from a wiring connector within the module, at no cost to owners.
Owners can reach Chevrolet customer service at (800) 222-1020 or GMC customer service at (800) 462-8782. The number for this recall is 18299.
