05034A -- A/C SYSTEM WIRING OR DUAL STAGE AIRBAG MODULE WIRING
2005 CHEVROLET COBALT
2005 PONTIAC PURSUIT
THIS BULLETIN IS BEING REVISED TO INCLUDE ADDITIONAL LABOR TIME IN THE EVENT THAT THE VEHICLE IS BROUGHT IN WITH AN INOPERATIVE A/C SYSTEM. DISCARD ALL COPIES OF BULLETIN 05034 ISSUED MAY 2005.
Certain 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac Pursuit vehicles have one of two conditions, 1) the steering column mounted airbag module wiring may be reversed. The driver's air bag will deploy under the same conditions (see "When Should An Air Bag Inflate?" in your owner's manual) and the vehicle meets the occupant protection requirements of the Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. In the event of a moderate frontal impact, however, the airbag would deploy fully instead of at the reduced level described in your owner's manual, or 2) vehicles equipped with a 2.2L engine (L61) and air conditioning (C67), voltage spikes from abnormal fan switching can damage the air conditioning pressure sensor transducer, resulting in a loss of air conditioning. Damage is more likely to occur if the abnormal fan switching occurs when the vehicle is being driven in city traffic and when the outside temperatures are 70 °F (21 °C) or higher. The spikes can also cause the engine to operate in a reduced power mode. If this occurs, the Driver Information Center will display "ENG PWR REDUCED", and the maximum throttle opening will permit a speed of about 30 mph (48 km/h).
Dealers are to 1) modify the circuitry to the airbag module, or 2) install wiring to isolate the voltage spike.
Involved are certain 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac Pursuit vehicles built within these VIN breakpoints:
Important: Dealers should confirm vehicle eligibility through GMVIS (GM Vehicle Inquiry System) prior to beginning program repairs. [Not all vehicles within the above breakpoints may be involved.]
For dealers with involved vehicles, a Campaign Initiation Detail Report containing the complete Vehicle Identification Number, customer name and address data has been prepared and will be loaded to the GM DealerWorld (US) Recall Information, GMinfoNet (Canada) Recall Reports. Dealers will not have a report available if they have no involved vehicles currently assigned.
The Campaign Initiation Detail Report may contain customer names and addresses obtained from Motor Vehicle Registration Records. The use of such motor vehicle registration data for any purpose other than follow-up necessary to complete this program is a violation of law in several states/provinces/countries. Accordingly, you are urged to limit the use of this report to the follow-up necessary to complete this program.
Parts required to complete this program are to be obtained from General Motors Service Parts Operations (GMSPO). Please refer to your "involved vehicles listing" before ordering parts. Normal orders should be placed on a DRO = Daily Replenishment Order. In an emergency situation, parts should be ordered on a CSO = Customer Special Order.

The General Motors Courtesy Transportation program is intended to minimize customer inconvenience when a vehicle requires a repair that is covered by the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. The availability of courtesy transportation to customers whose vehicles are within the warranty coverage period and involved in a product recall is very important in maintaining customer satisfaction. Dealers are to ensure that these customers understand that shuttle service or some other form of courtesy transportation is available and will be provided at no charge. Dealers should refer to the General Motors Service Policies and Procedures Manual for Courtesy Transportation guidelines.
Submit a Product Program Claim with the information indicated below.
Install A/C Jumper Harness
Add: Replace A/C Refrigerant Pressure Sensor

** Submit courtesy transportation using normal labor operations for courtesy transportation as indicated in the GM Service Policies and Procedures Manual for vehicles within the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
Refer to the General Motors WINS Claim Processing Manual for details on Product Recall Claim Submission.
General Motors will notify customers of this program on their vehicle (see copy of customer letter included with this bulletin).
Dealer Program Responsibility
All unsold new vehicles in dealers' possession and subject to this program must be held and inspected/repaired per the service procedure of this program bulletin before customers take possession of these vehicles.
Dealers are to service all vehicles subject to this program at no charge to customers, regardless of mileage, age of vehicle, or ownership, from this time forward.
Customers who have recently purchased vehicles sold from your vehicle inventory, and for which there is no customer information indicated on the dealer listing, are to be contacted by the dealer. Arrangements are to be made to make the required correction according to the instructions contained in this bulletin. A copy of the customer letter is provided in this bulletin for your use in contacting customers. Program follow-up cards should not be used for this purpose, since the customer may not as yet have received the notification letter.
In summary, whenever a vehicle subject to this program enters your vehicle inventory, or is in your dealership for service in the future, you must take the steps necessary to be sure the program correction has been made before selling or releasing the vehicle.

GM bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, NOT a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform these technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See your GM dealer for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.
