In July 2021 General Motors (GM) opened an investigation into fuel pump failures after a review of warranty data from certain 2021 GM full size SUVs. The data showed that there was a higher than expected rate of fuel pump control modules replaced for vehicles built within certain months. As part of the investigation, GM looked at the returned parts replaced in warranty claims and found the condition was caused by a manufacturing issue at the Tier 3 supplier.
According to the defect report, certain 2021 Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC full size SUVs may have been manufactured with fuel pump power control modules which contain a defect that can cause the fuel pump to fail or operate intermittently. When this happens, fuel flow to the engine will be interrupted and the vehicle could unexpectedly stall.
|The Vehicles Affected Include:|
|2021 Cadillac Escalade|
|2021 Cadillac Escalade ESV|
|2021 Chevrolet Suburban|
|2021 Chevrolet Tahoe|
|2021 GMC Yukon|
|2021 GMC Yukon XL|
Owners receiving notices will be asked to return to their dealers to have the fuel pump power control module replaced. GM’s number for this recall is N212332040 and the NHTSA campaign number is 21V-739.
