General Motors announced the recall more than 90,000 vehicles in North America because they may have been repaired with defective parts.
The recall includes full-size trucks and SUVs from the 2007-2014 model years.
Recalled vehicles may have a defective ignition lock actuator that could make turning the ignition key difficult and cause the ignition key could remain stuck in the "start" position if the vehicle's interior temperature is too warm.
If the vehicle is driven with the key stuck in the "start" position, and the vehicle's interior temperature cools or the vehicle experiences a significant jarring event, the ignition lock cylinder could move out of the "start" position, rotate past the "run" position, and move into the "accessory" position.
If this occurs, engine power, power steering and power braking will be affected. Also, the timing of the key movement into the accessory position relative to crash sensing could result in the air bags not deploying in certain crashes.
Potentially affected vehicles include certain Chevrolet Silverado light-duty and heavy-duty pickups as well as Avalanche, Tahoe and Suburban; GMC Sierra light duty and heavy-duty pickups, and Yukon and Yukon XL; Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV and Escalade EXT.
While GM is recalling 90,000 vehicles, the company believes fewer than 500 vehicles are expected to experience this problem.
