GM has issued a voluntary recall for certain 2020 - 2022 Corvette Stingrays over their transmission control module (TCM).
The faulty TCM units may be clearing diagnostic trouble codes incorrectly when the car is turned off.
Affected TCM’s may incorrectly clear the loss of communications Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) when the vehicle is keyed off after detecting a loss of communications with other control modules.
If the loss of communications fault persists, the TCM may not detect it again even after the vehicle is keyed back on. If this happens, the transmission could operate in a default mode with no DTC set and the malfunction indicator lamp not illuminated.
The fix: certified GM technicians will be instructed to inspect affected vehicles and reprogram the TCMS with updated software as needed. It should take techs less than one hour to complete the recall.
Affected components: Transmission Control Module (TCM).
• 2020-22 C8 Corvette Stingrays
Number of affected vehicles: As of the time of this writing, GM did not clarify the number of Corvette units affected by this recall.
