WASHINGTON General Motors is recalling 58 2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD pickup trucks because retention clips attaching the generator fuse block to the vehicle body can become loose and lead to a potential fire, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

This recall is part of the 2.4-million vehicle action previously reported by Edmunds.

"In the affected vehicles, the retention clips that attach the fuse block to the vehicle body can become loose, allowing the fuse block to move out of position," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "If this occurs, exposed conductors in the fuse block may contact the mounting studs or other metallic components, causing a short-to-ground event.

"This could result in an arcing condition and combustible materials located nearby could ignite and result in an engine-compartment fire."

No crashes or injuries are linked to the recall, GM said in a statement.

The trucks are equipped with a 220-amp generator.

The affected Silverado HD trucks were built from January 8, 2014 through February 27, 2014. The affected Sierra HD trucks were built from January 9, 2014 through February 14, 2014.

Dealers will inspect the fuse block to verify that it is properly secured and repair it as necessary. No date has been set for the recall. Owners can contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC at 1-800-462-8782.

Edmunds says: If you own one of these trucks you can either wait for your recall notice or contact your dealer for next steps.
