This bulletin is being revised to add the 2004 model year and include specific DTCs in the title line. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 02-06-05-004 (Section 06 - Engine/Propulsion System).
General Motors Engineering, in an effort to determine the root cause of catalytic converter damage, has determined that aftermarket alarm systems incorrectly installed in vehicles have the potential to cause misfire codes and damage to the converter. These alarm systems use a circuit interrupt which utilizes the ignition circuit on the vehicles.
These alarm systems utilize mechanical relays and normal vehicle movement can trigger these relays to engage and disengage the ignition circuit while the vehicle is in motion. These disruptions of the ignition circuit, which occur in milliseconds, may cause more fuel to be commanded. Over time, this dumping of fuel on and off again can cause misfire codes and ultimately damage the converter assembly.
Important Engineering could not identify any alarms that utilize solid state circuitry that would eliminate this concern. Because of this, it has been determined that all alarm systems must be routed through the starter circuit in order to avoid this condition.
Dealers must be aware of this issue and take note of the wiring on vehicles with alarm systems that come in for repair, particularly for catalytic converter damage that seem to have no known root cause.

Product Safety - Windshield Wiper Motor Failure #03023 - (Oct 8, 2003) 03023 - Windshield Wiper Motor Failure 1994 Chevrolet C/K Pickup, Tahoe 4WD, Suburban 2WD
1995 Chevrolet C/K Pickup, C/K Crew Cab 4WD, Tahoe 4WD, Suburban, Astro Van
1996 Chevrolet Blazer, S10, C/K Pickup, C/K Crew Cab, Tahoe, Suburban, Astro Van

General Motors has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 1994 Chevrolet C/K Pickup, Tahoe, Suburban; 1995 Chevrolet C/K Pickup, C/K Crew Cab, Tahoe, Suburban, Astro Van; 1996 Chevrolet Blazer, S10 Pickup, C/K Pickup, C/K Crew Cab, Tahoe, Suburban, Astro Van; 1997 Chevrolet S10 Pickup, C/K Crew Cab, Suburban 4WD, Astro Van; 1994 GMC Sierra Pickup, Yukon, Suburban; 1995 GMC Sierra Pickup, Sierra Crew Cab, Yukon, Suburban, Safari Van; 1996 GMC Sonoma, Jimmy, Sierra Pickup, Sierra Crew Cab, Yukon, Suburban, Safari Van; 1997 GMC Sonoma, Sierra Crew Cab, Suburban 4WD, Safari Van; 1996 Oldsmobile Bravada vehicles. These vehicles may have a condition in which the windshield wiper motor may fail. These failures are the result of cracked solder joints on the controller circuit board near the wiring harness connector. Depending on which solder joints crack or the severity of the crack, the windshield wipers could work intermittently or not at all. If this were to occur in a severe weather situation, driver visibility could be reduced, which could result in a vehicle crash without prior warning.
Correction Dealers are to replace the wiper motor circuit board and cover.

Info - Driveline Clunk Noise When Shifting Between PARK and DRIVE, PARK and REVERSE or DRIVE and REVERSE #99-04-20-002C - (Jan 31, 2005) Driveline Clunk Noise When Shifting Between PARK and DRIVE, PARK and REVERSE or DRIVE and REVERSE 2005 and Prior GM Light Duty Truck Models
2003-2005 HUMMER H2
This bulletin is being revised to add model years. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 99-04-20-002B (Section 04 -- Driveline/Axle).
Important: The condition described in this bulletin should not be confused with the following previous bulletins:
. Info - Discontinue Flushing and Replacing Transfer Case Fluid Due to Bump/Clunk Concern (Corporate Bulletin Number 99-04-21-004A or newer).
. Clunk, Bump or Squawk when Vehicle Comes to Complete Stop or Accelerating from Complete Stop or Accelerating from Complete Stop (Replace Rear Drive Shaft Nickel-Plated Slip Yoke) (Corporate Bulletin Number 01-04-17-004B or newer).
Some owners of light duty trucks equipped with automatic transmissions may comment that the vehicle exhibits a clunk noise when shifting between Park and Drive, Park and Reverse, or Drive and Reverse. Similarly, owners of vehicles equipped with automatic or manual transmissions may comment that the vehicle exhibits a clunk noise while driving when the accelerator is quickly depressed and then released.
Whenever there are two or more gears interacting with one another, there must be a certain amount of clearance between those gears in order for the gears to operate properly. This clearance or freeplay (also known as lash) can translate into a clunk noise whenever the gear is loaded and unloaded quickly, or whenever the direction of rotation is reversed. The more gears you have in a system, the more freeplay the total system will have.
The clunk noise that owners sometimes hear may be the result of a buildup of freeplay (lash) between the components in the driveline.
For example, the potential for a driveline clunk would be greater in a 4-wheel drive or all-wheel drive vehicle than a 2-wheel drive vehicle. This is because in addition to the freeplay from the rear axle gears, the universal joints, and the transmission (common to both vehicles), the 4-wheel drive transfer case gears (and their associated clearances) add additional freeplay to the driveline.
In service, dealers are discouraged from attempting to repair driveline clunk conditions for the following reasons:
. Comments of driveline clunk are almost never the result of one individual component with excessive lash, but rather the result of the added affect of freeplay (or lash) present in all of the driveline components. Because all of the components in the driveline have a certain amount of lash by design, changing driveline components may not result in a satisfactory lash reduction.
. While some owners may find the clunk noise objectionable, this will not adversely affect durability or performance.
. For additional diagnostic information, refer to the appropriate Service Information.

Has there been any kind of recalls on the cats on S10's from 96 to 99? If so, which years and what conditions?
