GM recalls 2021 Chevy Tahoe and other SUVs over traffic light issue
General Motors will notify owners of nearly 340,000 of its popular large SUVs of a recall. The problem is that the traffic lights of the vehicles remain on after the normal headlights have been switched on. According to National Highway Safety Administrationthe problem affects some 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and suburbs, Cadillac Escalades and ESVs, GMC Yukons and Yukon XLs.
The problem that forces the recall
NHTSA says having all the lights on at once could dazzle oncoming drivers and increase the possibility of a crash. It also goes against federal motor vehicle safety guidelines. GM says it has no reports of any accidents or injuries due to the traffic light situation.
How GM will fix the problem
Owners of the vehicles will be notified by mail beginning December 19, 2022. Owners should return the vehicles to the dealership where service technicians can update the software that controls the lights and correct the problem.
The NHTSA campaign number for this recall is 22V827. The GM number for this recall is N222382220.
