On certain vehicles, one or both of the side curtain airbags may have been incorrectly positioned during vehicle assembly. If this occurred, a portion of the bag may be restricted from fully deploying. The side curtain airbag will still timely deploy, meet and exceed applicable safety standards. This action is deemed a voluntary service campaign and is not being conducted under the Motor Vehicle Safety Act. Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, reposition the airbag.
2009 Ford F-150
Vehicles affected: 1,894
On certain vehicles, the brake lamp switch may have been incorrectly installed during vehicle assembly, which may cause a delay in brake stop lamp illumination when the brake pedal is depressed. Under light brake pedal application, the stop lamps may not illuminate. Dealers will remove the switch and reposition it correctly.
2010 Chevrolet Camaro
Vehicles affected: 112
On certain vehicles equipped with a V8 engine, the positive battery cable may contact the starter motor housing, which could cause chafe damage to the cable insulation. If the insulation wears through to the cable, it could create an electrical short, which could result in a no-start condition, cause the engine to stall without the ability to restart, or cause an engine compartment fire. Dealers will reroute the cable to ensure adequate clearance.

2009 Chevrolet Avalanche
2009 Chevrolet Colorado

On certain vehicles, the fuel system control module may be subject to water intrusion.

Dealers will replace the control module.
2009 Chevrolet Traverse
Vehicles affected: 909
On certain vehicles, the park brake cable link (connector) may fracture when the brake pedal is depressed.

2009 Dodge Ram
Vehicles affected: 4,900
On certain vehicles equipped with manual temperature control, the software programmed into the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) module may cause the windshield defrosting and defogging functions to become inoperative. Dealers will reprogram the software.
