The problem: in affected vehicles, the anti-rotation tabs on the positive battery cable terminal may come into contact with a fuse block assembly attachment post, causing a short circuit. This is due to the clearance between the positive battery cable anti-rotation tab and the fuse attachment post being small enough to allow contact in certain situations.
The hazards: drivers may get a low battery voltage warning or experience a dead battery. A short circuit of a positive batter cable to a fuse attachment post can cause battery drain or may lead to an under hood fire.
The fix: dealers will be instructed to remove a portion of the anti-rotation tab on both positive battery cable terminals near the engine compartment fuse block assembly attachments. These repairs will be performed at no cost to the vehicle owner. This problem only affected Chevy Express and GMC Savana vans equipped with the available 6.6 L8T V8 engine.
Affected components: positive battery cable terminal.
