General Motors recently announced it is recalling more than 2,400 mid-size pickup trucks in connection to a previous recall citing an issue involving a faulty air bag deployment system.
In October, the Michigan-based auto giant instructed dealerships to discontinue the sale of the new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon trucks until such time when the wiring issue responsible for the faulty airbags can be fixed.
On Friday, December 5, GM reported that 2,432 vehicles are affected by the recall, 149 of which are located in Canada.
The recall states that incorrect wiring involving the driver side airbag is present in the affected vehicles. The faulty wiring essentially reverses the deployment sequence of the two-stage system which could result in the airbag deploying incorrectly, ultimately increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Dealerships have been instructed to reprogram the inflatable restraint sensing and diagnostic module at no cost to the customer.
