I guess everyone isn't as smart as you are. He wasn't pulling anything, vehicle has to be in order to be cleared from recall, no one said there was no recall, he said it now only applies to 4500 and 5500 trucks. Gosh, I wish I was as smart as you(not). And I think you know where you can shove you Florida land!
Maybe the dealer guy got confused about how they are treating the 45/55/65's? https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/201...9V328-3409.pdf
From top of notification:
Attention: It is a violation of Federal law for a dealer to deliver a new motor vehicle or any new or used item of motor
vehicle equipment (including a tire) covered by this notification under a sale or lease until the defect or
noncompliance is remedied.
This recall applies to used inventory. For customer vehicles, you do not need to disable the engine-block
heater. If the customer requests the disable procedure be completed, you may proceed but advising the
customer to NOT use the heater block cord is sufficient. GM is developing a final repair that will restore
the functionality of the engine-block heater.
Dealers will be advised when the disable procedure and remedy for 2019 Chevrolet Silverado
4500/5500/6500 medium duty trucks is available. At this time, these new vehicles are on a stop delivery
order under N182206312.
All involved vehicles that are in used inventory must be held and not delivered to customers, dealer
traded, or used for demonstration purposes until the repair contained in this bulletin has been performed
on the vehicle.
Later in pdf it does say that this current 'procedure' does not apply to the 45/55/65's.
FWIW, the procedure says to cut the cord off at the heater, rather than extending it and cutting the plug of the end of cord at the wheelwell.
(I'm gonna guess that's so it's not possible to attach a new plug to the end of the cord)
