2000 Chevrolet S10, Silverado, GMC Sonoma and  Sierra Trucks Recalled

Washington, DC (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has published the recall of certain 2000 Chevrolet S10, Silverado, GMC Sonoma and  Sierra trucks, manufactured in August 1999, because certain light duty trucks equipped with 4-wheel disc brakes, the Antilock Brake System (ABS) motor contains an out-of-specification spring clip.

This clip could allow the motor bearing to become misaligned. If misalignment occurs, eventually the ABS would be non-functional. The base brakes would remain fully functional, but the Dynamic Rear Proportioning (DRP) system, which optimizes front to rear brake balance, would become inoperative, increasing the likelihood of a crash.

Approximately 10,600 trucks are affected by this recall.  Dealers will replace the brake pressure module valve assembly.

The manufacturer has reported that owner notification will begin during April 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC at 1-800-462-8782.

[NHTSA Recall No. 00V055/GM Recall No. 00013]
