SHOW TRANSCRIPT

General Motors has issued recalls for more than 900,000 new vehicles worldwide as part of two separate campaigns to address brake controls and fire risks.

The first recall covers more than 550,000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, GMC Sierra 1500 and Cadillac CT6 vehicles. It was issued due to a rare software error that can cause the vehicle’s electronic stability control or anti-lock brake system to disable. 

The second recall involves more than 400,000 GMC Sierra 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 trucks. A cable connecting the battery and alternator may have been manufactured with too much glue. The excessive glue can interrupt the cable's electrical connection and potentially cause a stall or even a fire.

According to Reuters, the recall was prompted by a report of a stall from a GM employee in Canada.

Dealers are expected to begin implementing fixes for each of the issues on Jan. 27.
