GMC SIERRA 1500 2002 Safety Review #10160809

GMC SIERRA 1500 2002 car safety problem was reported on June 22, 2006.GMC SIERRA 1500 2002, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with EQUIPMENT:ELECTRICAL:AIR CONDITIONER . 2002 GMC SIERRA 1500 P/U W/4.3 LT. V-6, I HAVE HAD TO HAVE THE A/C CONDENSATION LINE COVERED THREE TIMES WITH THE FOAM INSULATION FROM MY DEALER. THEY ALSO HAVE TO CLEAN THE CORROSION FROM THE DISTRIBUTOR, REMOVE THE SCREEN IN THE BOTTOM OF THE DISTRIBUTOR, CLEAN THE SPARK PLUGS AND REPLACE THE CAP AND ROTOR ON EACH OCCASION. MY TRUCK IS CURRENTLY IN THE SHOP AGAIN TO HAVE THE DISTRIBUTOR REPLACED. THIS IS AT A COST OF AROUND $680.00 TO REPLACE THE DISTRIBUTOR , NEW PLUGS DUE TO FOULING AND WIRES. I HAVE SPOKEN WITH GENERAL MOTORS AND TO THE DEALER SEVERAL TIMES REGARDING THE TEMPORARY FIX (BAND-AID). THE AIR CONDITION CONDENSATION LINE IS LOCATED DIRECTLY ABOVE THE DISTRIBUTOR AND THEY REFUSE TO MOVE IT. IT HAS BECOME INCREASINGLY APPARENT THEIR REPAIR IS NOT A FIX BUT A TEMPORARY SOLUTION TO GET YOU OUT OF WARRANTY. THERE HAS BEEN A RECALL SENT TO ME BUT DOES NOT SHOW IN YOUR LISTINGS FOR THE SUBJECT VEHICLE. THIS PROBLEM IS VERY DANGEROUS, YOUR VEHICLE USUALLY GIVES NO SIGNS BEFORE LEAVING YOU STRANDED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE HIGHWAY. MY QUESTION IS WHY THE DEALER GETS AWAY WITH A TEMPORARY FIX AND NOT A RESOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM ? I BELIEVE THE AIR CONDITION CONDENSER LINE SHOULD BE RELOCATED AWAY FROM THE DISTRIBUTOR ALTOGETHER. GMC IS WELL AWARE OF THIS PROBLEM AND RECTIFIED THE RE-ENGINEERING OF THE A/C LINE ROUTE IN THE 2003 MODELS. *NM.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 27000 miles.

GMC SIERRA 1500 2002 Safety Review #10214265

GMC SIERRA 1500 2002 car safety problem was reported on Dec 08, 2007.GMC SIERRA 1500 2002, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:ANTILOCK:WHEEL SPEED SENSOR . ANTILOCK BRAKES ON 2002 GMC SIERRA TRUCK ACTIVATE FOR NO REASON AT SPEEDS OF 5MPH OR LESS MAKING THE VEHICLE UNSAFE TO DRIVE. THERE WAS A RECALL ON THE SENSORS FOR THIS REASON. I HAD MY SENSORS "TAKEN CARE OF" AND AFTERWARDS STARTED EXPERIENCING THIS EXACT PROBLEM. I WAS TOLD THAT THE HUBS ARE BAD AND THIS IS WHY THE ANTI LOCKS ARE COMING ON. THE SENSORS CAN NOT READ THE HUB "CORRECTLY". THE HUBS, WHICH ARE NOT A WEAR ITEM, CAN BE REPLACED FOR $1000. THIS IS ON A 2002 PICK UP TRUCK WITH 46,000 MILES ON IT AND IS GARAGE KEPT. THE HUBS ARE A NON WEAR ITEM. POOR ENGINEERING IS THE CULPRIT OF THIS PROBLEM. THE HUBS SHOULD BE REPLACED JUST LIKE THE SENSORS WERE. I WAS ALSO TOLD THAT ON MY GMC TRUCK I CANNOT HAVE THE ANTILOCK BRAKES DEACTIVATED. AS A RESULT, I HAVE TO SPEND THE $1000 TO MAKE MY TRUCK SAFE TO DRIVE. PROBABLY 40,000 MILES IN THE FUTURE I CAN REPLACE THE HUBS AGAIN FOR $1000. $1000 TO REPLACE A NON WEAR ITEM. ANTILOCK BRAKES ARE ON A VEHICLE TO MAKE THE VEHICLE SAFER. THE ANTILOCKS ON MY GMC MAKE THE VEHICLE UNDRIVABLE BECAUSE OF BEING UNSAFE. IT SHOULD BE POSSIBLE TO DEPEND ON YOUR BRAKES TO MAKE YOU STOP. WITH MY VEHICLE I CAN'T STOP. THIS IS NOT A WEAR ITEM THAT IS CAUSING MY PROBLEM. THIS IS POOR ENGINEERING! THIS SHOULD BE COVERED UNDER A RECALL, SAME AS THE SENSORS WERE COVERED UNDER A RECALL. GMC WILL COVER THE SENSORS BUT NOT WHAT THE SENSORS ARE LOOKING AT. *TR.Mileage was 45000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):2GTEK19T621.

GMC SIERRA 1500 2002 car safety problem was reported on Apr 30, 2009.GMC SIERRA 1500 2002, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, ELECTRIC . MY ISSUE WITH MY 2002 GMC SIERRA 1500 REGULAR CAB LONG BED IS RELATED TO AN ABS WHEEL SENSOR RECALL. I HAD MY TRUCK SERVICED IN DEC 2005 FOR THE RECALL PROBLEM. THE NATURE OF THE PROBLEM IS CORROSION AT THE ABS WHEEL SENSOR WHICH CAUSES THE ABS BRAKING SYSTEM TO ACTIVATE AT LOW SPEEDS WHEN STOPPING WHICH IN TURN INCREASES THE STOPPING DISTANCE. THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE THAT CANNOT BE NEGLECTED. I HAD GONE TO THE BOB ROSS BUICK/GMC DEALERSHIP IN CENTERVILLE, OH ON 4/30/2009 ┐ ORIGINAL DEALER WHERE I PURCHASED THE TRUCK. THEY PERFORMED AN INSPECTION FOR $64.95 PLUS TAX AND 10% SHOP SUPPLIES CHARGE. THEY TOLD ME THAT SINCE THE TRUCK WAS ALREADY SERVICED FOR THE RECALL, THAT I AM NOT COVERED TO RE-REPAIR/REWORK THE TRUCK FOR THE RECURRENCE OF THE PROBLEM. I CONTACTED GM CUSTOMER CARE AND WORKED WITH A REPRESENTATIVE NAMED AL AND THEN AFTER HE SAID HE COULDN'T DO ANYTHING FOR ME FROM GM CORPORATE I WAS CONNECTED TO GM DISTRICT SPECIALIST DONALD HOWELL (1-800-790-5700 X41958). DONALD ALSO EVENTUALLY SAID THAT GM WOULD NOT HELP WITH GETTING THE WORK PERFORMED. THE SERVICE REQUEST # FOR MY CASE IS 71-758818423. MY REQUIREMENT FOR RESOLUTION IS THAT GM REPAIRS THE ISSUE AT NO COST TO ME, MOST PREFERABLY BY REPLACING THE ABS WHEEL SENSORS WITH NEW ONES LESS LIKELY TO CORRODE. I┐M SURE THAT THE NEW PRODUCT DESIGN HAS THE CORROSION ISSUE IN MIND AND HAS FOUND A WAY TO AVOID IT. AS THE REPAIR HISTORY OF MY VEHICLE SHOULD STATE, THE ABS WHEEL SENSORS WERE CLEANED AND THEN SPRAY PAINTED WITH A ┐CORROSION RESISTANT PAINT┐ TO FIX THE ISSUE IN DEC 2005. AS AN AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEER WHO WORKED FOR GM/DELPHI FOR 14 YEARS OF MY PROFESSIONAL CAREER, I KNOW THAT WHAT WAS PERFORMED PREVIOUSLY IS NOT A PERMANENT FIX. I ALSO AM WILLING TO BET THAT I AM NOT THE ONLY CUSTOMER WITH RECURRENCE OF THIS ISSUE. HAD IT BEEN FIXED CORRECTLY THE FIRST TIME ┐ WITH NEW ABS SENSORS - THEN THE PROBLEM WOULD NOT HAVE RECURRED. I SHOULD ALSO BE REIMBURSED FOR THE $76.46 I HAD TO SPEND FOR DIAGNOSIS. *TR.Mileage was 25880 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1GTEK14T42Z.

GMC SIERRA 1500 2002 car safety problem was reported on Apr 15, 2010.GMC SIERRA 1500 2002, manufactured by GENERAL MOTORS CORP. had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . 1. ANTI-LOCK BRAKES ACTIVATION AT LOW SPEEDS 3-5 MPH. 2. ALWAYS THE FIRST TIME APPLIED WHEN COLD AFTER THAT AT VARIOUS TIMES 3. THIS IS THE SAME CONDITIONS AS NHTSA 05V379000 OR GM 05068 WHICH STARTED IN 2005. THE TRUCK WAS LOOKED AT THEN WHEN THERE WAS NO PROBLEMS BUT WHEN THE PROBLEM IS HAPPENING NOW GM SAYS THAT IT IS ONLY A ONE TIME RECALL. THE DEALER LOOKED AT THE TRUCK AND SAID THE HUB WAS WORN AND NEEDED REPLACED FOR $500 PER SIDE. WHEN I QUESTIONED THE SERVICE REP IF THE BEARING WAS WORN HE SAID NO. I THEN ASKED WHAT WAS WORN SINCE THE HUB IS THE BEARING. HE SAID I DID NOT HAVE TO HAVE IT REPAIRED IF I DID NOT WANT TO. I EXPLAINED THAT I WANTED THE RECALL WORK DONE WHICH WAS CLEANING THE RUST FROM THE SENSOR. I ALSO STATED THAT THERE ARE MAGNETS ON THE HUB THAT PASS THE SENSOR CREATING AN ELECTRICAL IMPULSE SO IF THE BEARING WAS NOT WORN ARE THE MAGNETS WORN? HE SAID THE HUB WAS BAD AND NEEDED REPLACED. I DECLINED THE WORK. I COMPLAINED TO GM AND THEY SAID THAT I WAS TOLD IT WAS A BAD SENSOR AND DECLINED THE WORK OR FURTHER DIAGNOSIS. THAT WAS A LIE. I THEN DID THE RECALL PROCEDURE OF REMOVING THE SENSOR AND CLEANING THE RUST AWAY. THERE IS ALSO NO BEARING PLAY SO THE HUB IS NOT WORN. THE BRAKES NOW WORK FINE. SO A COUPLE OF THINGS HERE. IF THERE IS A SAFETY RECALL AND IT COMES BACK AS THIS DID SHOULD THEY HAVE DONE THIS WORK. SECOND THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT AT JOE BALL GMC IS RUNNING A SCAM AND MAKING MONEY ON PEOPLE THAT DO NOT KNOW BETTER. *TR.Mileage was 81000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1GTEK14T32E.

MOMENTS AFTER LEAVING THE DRIVEWAY AT OUR HOME, APPROACHING AN INTERSECTION AT ABOUT 25 MPH, I APPLIED THE BRAKES ON MY 2002 GMC SIERRA, AND THE PEDAL WENT TO THE FLOOR. I COULDN'T STOP THE VEHICLE BEFORE GOING THROUGH THE INTERSECTION. FORTUNATELY NO OTHER VEHICLES WERE IN THE INTERSECTION AND NO ACCIDENT OCCURRED. AFTER RETURNING THE VEHICLE TO THE DRIVEWAY I DISCOVERED BRAKE FLUID UNDER THE TRUCK BED AND DRIPPING FROM THE FRAME.I COULD NOT SEE THE SOURCE OF THE LEAK AS IT WAS WELL HIDDEN EITHER IN OR ABOVE THE TRUCK FRAME. I HAD THE VEHICLE BROUGHT BY FLAT BED TRUCK TO A LOCAL AUTO REPAIR GARAGE. THE MECHANICS FOUND THE BRAKE LINES TO BE HEAVILY RUSTED AND ONE HAD RUSTED THROUGH AND FAILED, CAUSING THE EARLIER BRAKE FAILURE. BECAUSE THE BRAKE LINE RUSTING WAS SO HEAVY, ALL THE BRAKE LINES WERE REPLACED. ALSO,, THE TWO FRONT BRAKE CALIPERS WERE REPLACED BECAUSE OF HEAVY RUST. THE RUSTED BRAKE LINES ARE AVAILABLE. THE CONSEQUENCES OF THIS WAS A REPAIR BILL OF $1149.78, AND HAVING MY TRUCK IN THE SHOP FOR SEVERAL DAYS. LUCKILY, NOBODY WAS HURT. IF THIS HAD OCCURRED LATER IN THE DAY IN THE SAME LOCATION IT MAY NOT HAVE TURNED OUT THE SAME. THIS IS THE THIRD MAJOR BRAKE REPAIR DONE ON THIS TRUCK. I AM THE ORIGINAL OWNER. I HAVE HAD TO HAVE THE BRAKE PADS AND ROTORS REPLACED TWICE. BOTH TIMES I WAS TOLD THE ROTORS WERE SO BADLY RUSTED THEY NEEDED TO BE REPLACED.

GMC SIERRA 1500 2002 car safety problem was reported on Jan 12, 2011.GMC SIERRA 1500 2002, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES . ON MY 2002 GMC SIERRA 1500 EXTENDED CAB 2WD THE ABS AND BRAKE LIGHTS GO ON AND OFF. I HAD MY LOCAL GM DEALER ADDRESS THIS ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS THEY HAVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT THE ABS BRAKE MODULE IS BAD. I ASKED IF THERE WERE ANY RECALLS ON THIS THEY SAID THEIR IS A BULLETIN OUT THAT THE GROUNDS COULD BE BAD SO I HAD THEM DO THIS FIX IT DID NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM ALSO THEIR WAS A RECALL TO FIX THE SPEED SENSORS IN THE WHEELS WHICH THEY FIXED ALSO DID NOT FIX THE PROBLEM. I DECIDED TO GOOGLE THIS TYPE OF PROBLEM TO SEE IF OTHER PEOPLE HAD THIS SAME ISSUE I HAVE FOUND HUNDRED OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WITH EXACT SAME ISSUE OR WERE IT HAS EVEN GOTTEN WORSE AND THE LIGHTS STAY ON ALL THE TIME. IT SEEMS TO AFFECT GM VEHICLES MADE FROM 1999 TO 2007 CARS AND TRUCKS BUT MOSTLY TRUCKS. TO ME THIS IS A BIG SAFETY ISSUE MOST PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW THAT WHEN BOTH OF THOSE LIGHTS ARE ON THEY HAVE NO ABS. I WAS LUCKY TO HAVE A GOOD SERVICE MANAGER WHO EXPLAINED THIS TO ME AND HOW OFTEN THIS PROBLEM OCCURS. THANK YOU. *TR.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 129000 miles.

GMC SIERRA 1500 2002 car safety problem was reported on Mar 04, 2013.GMC SIERRA 1500 2002, manufactured by General Motors LLC had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES . I WAS AT MY LOCAL COFFEE SHOP DRIVE THRU. I LEFT THE DRIVE THRU AND AS I APPROACHED THE EXIT, ROLLING VERY SLOW I EXPERIENCED THE DREADED GM BRAKE FAILURE. MY FOOT WENT TO THE FLOOR. LUCKILY I WAS ABLE TO USE THE EMERGENCY BRAKE BEFORE INVOLUNTARILY MERGING ONTO A BUSY SECONDARY ROAD. I UNDERSTAND RUST IS INEVITABLE BUT ALL OF THE BRAKE LINES ARE BEYOND REPAIR ACCORDING TO MY MECHANIC - HE WILL NOT REPAIR THEM ONLY REPLACE THEM. MY BIGGER ISSUE IS THE FACT THAT SINCE 1967 ALL CARS & LIGHT TRUCKS USE A DUAL MASTER CYLINDER ENABLING THE VEHICLE TO STOP INCASE OF BRAKE FAILURE. MY GMC AND APPARENTLY OTHERS HAVE THE SAME ISSUE - THAT EVEN WHEN A LINE BLOWS THE TRUCKS WILL NOT STOP! THE DUAL MASTER DOES NOT DO WHAT IT IS DESIGNED TO DO! THIS COUPLED WITH THE FACT THAT I ALSO HAVE BEEN PLAGUED WITH ABS LOW SPEED PROBLEMS SINCE 60K I REALLY FEEL THAT GM ENGINEERS AND BEAN COUNTERS NEED TO AGREE ON SAFETY. CONSIDERING THAT BRAKE LINES OF THIRTY YEARS AGO ARE BETTER THAN LATE MODEL PRODUCTS WOULD IT REALLY BE THAT MUCH FOR THE FEDS TO REQUIRE STAINLESS STEEL BRAKE LINES? MY 2002 SIERRA LOOKS GOOD BUT THE UNDERSIDE (CHASSIS, SUSPENSION PARTS AND BRAKE LINES) ARE NOT GOOD. THIS TRUCK IS NOT A GOOD INVESTMENT AND IT IS DEFINITELY FULL OF SAFETY ISSUES. IF I WAS IN TRAFFIC I AM SURE THAT I WOULD NOT BEEN ABLE TO STOP WITHOUT AN ACCIDENT. WE AS CONSUMERS DO NOT NEED THIRD BRAKE LIGHTS AND USELESS ABS BRAKES. WE NEED BRAKES THAT WORK WHEN PRESSURE IS APPLIED TO THE PEDAL! *TR.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 137925 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1GTEC14V52E.
