GM recalls over 800,000 vehicles over safety issues

General Motors Co. recalled a total of 814,366 of its model year 2019-2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Cadillac CT6 and GMC Sierra 1500 vehicles over a number of safety concerns.

The Detroit-based automaker issued safety recalls over a potential software glitch for 332,560 Chevrolet Silverado pickups, 821 Cadillac CT6 sedans and 130,614 GMC Sierra 1500 pickups.

The error could disable the vehicle's electronic stability control, or ESC, and antilock brake system, or ABS. GM said the vehicle's diagnostics will not illuminate the ESC and ABS warning lamps, increasing the risk of a crash.

The carmaker said it is not aware of any reports of accidents or injuries related to the issue. Dealers will reflash the electronic brake control module software to resolve the issue.

The broader recall also includes 242,655 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and 107,716 GMC Sierra 1500 pickups. The vehicles were recalled over a fire risk.

The carmaker said battery positive cable rings on the affected vehicles may have been manufactured with excessive glue, which could result in a fire or stalling. Dealers will inspect vehicles for glue or other contaminants and replace damaged parts if needed.

One incident of fire has been reported, but there are no injuries, the company said.
