General Motors is recalling 49,927 2010- to 2014-model year Chevrolet Tahoe Police Pursuit vehicles to address a fire risk, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The vehicles at issue were manufactured from Aug. 24, 2009, to Dec. 1, 2013. They’re equipped with special equipment options for police or government service.

In these vehicles, there may be corrosion of the under-hood cooling fan assembly because of fluid intrusion. This condition can lead to an electrical short circuit that increases the risk of fire, NHTSA said.

GM dealers will replace the fan motor and shroud, extend the wiring, and re-orient the fan motor to reduce the risk of corrosion. There will be no charge for this service.

Fleet managers can reach Chevrolet customer service at (800) 222-1020. GM’s number for this recall is 16145.
