The National Highway Transportation Safety Agency recently approved a request by General Motors to recall four 2021 vehicle makes due to a malfunctioning air bag warning light. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Friday the cars in question include the Buick Envision, Cadillac CT4 and CT5, Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Corvette, Suburban and Tahoe, and GMC Yukon and Yukon XL.
The recall affects some 285,622 vehicles and the reason for the recall is software-related issues. The software issues could cause the air bag light to illuminate inconsistently and that resulted in a failure to notify the driver of an actual problem. Owners of the vehicles included in the recall will be informed by GM in writing later next month. GM will update the vehicles’ software free of charge to fix the problem, which the Detroit automaker reported to regulators last week. There is a worldwide shortage of computer chips and that has resulted in fewer cars being produced. If you own one of the included makes and models the NHTSA urges you to check for open recalls of their vehicles at https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls. Owners should enter their 17-digit vehicle identification number, which usually is printed on state registration documents.
The addition of Infotainment systems, increasingly complex navigation systems, lane departure avoidance systems and multiple onboard cameras, more and more software is being employed to drive these systems. These on board systems have led to more and more complex black box systems and the complexity of the systems, the software used to drive them and the world wide supply chain insufficiencies have led to many of these issues.
