General Motors (GM) is recalling nearly 50,000 model year 2010-2014 Chevrolet Tahoe Police Pursuit vehicles.

The affected vehicles, equipped with special equipment options for police or government service, may experience corrosion of the under-hood cooling fan assembly due to fluid intrusion, which may result in an electrical short circuit—increasing the risk of a vehicle fire.

All of the Chevrolet Tahoe Police Pursuit vehicles impacted by this recall were manufactured from August 24, 2009 through December 1, 2013.

GM will notify owners of the recalled vehicles, and dealers will replace the fan motor and shroud, extend the wiring, and re-orient the fan motor to reduce the risk of corrosion. All repairs related to this recall will be completed free of charge to vehicle owners.

GM has not yet provided a specific owner notification schedule for this recall. For further information, contact Chevrolet customer service at (800) 222-1020. GM's reference number for this recall is 16145.
