General Motors (GM) is recalling 392,459 model year 2014-2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, and 2015 GMC Yukon and Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe vehicles.

An electrical signal short in the affected SUVs may cause the transfer case to shift to neutral without the driver's input.

If the transfer case switches to neutral while the vehicle is parked and the parking brake is not in use, the vehicle may roll away increasing the risk of injury to bystanders. If the transfer case switches to neutral while the vehicle is being driven, the vehicle would lose drive power, increasing the risk of a crash.

GM will notify owners of the recalled Silverado, Sierra, Yukon, Suburban and Tahoe vehicles, and local dealers will re-program the software in the transfer case control module at no cost to vehicle owners.
