Sierra 2500 2WD V8-8.1L VIN G (2005)
THIS PROGRAM IS IN EFFECT UNTIL APRIL 30, 2011.
Certain 2002-2009 model year vehicles equipped with OnStar(R) may have a condition in which the vehicle's OnStar(R) system repeatedly makes
incomplete calls to OnStar(R) without the vehicle's occupant(s) input or knowledge. Customer initiated Blue Button call, Emergency calls, and
Automatic Crash Notification calls will also fail to establish a data connection with the OnStar(R) Call Center. Eventually, the customer's call will
connect as a voice only line and the customer will be able to talk with an OnStar(R) advisor; however, the advisor will not get crucial customer data such
as vehicle identification and location.
Dealers/retailers are to replace the OnStar(R) module (VCIM).
Involved are certain 2002-2009 model year vehicles equipped with OnStar(R), and built within these VIN breakpoints:
Some model years/models have only one vehicle involved.
Dealers/retailers are to confirm vehicle eligibility prior to beginning repairs by using GMVIS (dealers/retailers using WINS) or the Investigate
Vehicle History link (dealers/retailers using GWM). Not all vehicles within the above breakpoints may be involved.
For dealers/retailers with involved vehicles, a listing with involved vehicles containing the complete vehicle identification number, customer name, and
address information has been prepared and will be provided to dealers/retailers through the GM GlobalConnect Recall Reports. Dealers/retailers will not
have a report available if they have no involved vehicles currently assigned.
The listing may contain customer names and addresses obtained from Motor Vehicle Registration Records. The use of such motor vehicle registration
data for any purpose other than follow-up necessary to complete this program is a violation of law in several states/provinces/countries. Accordingly, you
are urged to limit the use of this report to the follow-up necessary to complete this program.

The General Motors Courtesy Transportation program is intended to minimize customer inconvenience when a vehicle requires a repair that is covered
by the New Vehicle Limited Warranties. The availability of courtesy transportation to customers whose vehicles are within the warranty coverage period
and involved in a product program is very important in maintaining customer satisfaction. Dealers/retailers are to ensure that these customers understand
that shuttle service or some other form of courtesy transportation is available and will be provided at no charge. Dealers should refer to the General
Motors Service Policies and Procedures Manual for Courtesy Transportation guidelines.
