GM will be issuing a recall for certain 2021 model year vehicles, and the list includes the Chevrolet Corvette.
GM has alerted the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to the software defect, though the NHTSA still doesnít have any official information yet.

Please note that the recall only affects 2021 models and as itís a software-related event, those owners will hopefully be able to take care of it via an Over the Air update.

Manufacturer Recall Number: N212338110
NHTSA Recall Number: AWAITING #

Recall Status Recall Incomplete

Summary General Motors has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 2021 model year Buick Envision vehicles; Cadillac CT4, CT5, Escalade, and Escalade ESV vehicles; Chevrolet Corvette, Suburban, and Tahoe vehicles; and GMC Yukon and Yukon XL vehicles.

A software problem exists in certain of these vehicles which would cause a sensing diagnostic module (SDM) communications fault to illuminate the airbag malfunction indicator lamp, but only on alternating ignition cycles.

As a result, an SDM communications fault would not consistently illuminate the airbag light on every ignition cycle to indicate a problem to the driver.

The U.S. governmentís highway safety agency approved a request by General Motors to recall models from four 2021 vehicle makes due to a malfunctioning air bag warning light.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Friday that 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 government said 285,622 vehicles were affected by the software-related issue, which could cause the air bag light to illuminate inconsistently and fail 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.

NHTSA urges people to check for open recalls of their vehicles at GM Recalls


Owners should enter their 17-digit vehicle identification number, which usually is printed on state registration documents.
