GM has issued a recall for some 2022 and 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 models due to an issue related to daytime running lights (DRLs) failing to deactivate. The recall of approximately 740,000 vehicles, which includes many other GM vehicles, affects both U.S. and Canadian models.
Affected vehicles fitted with faulty DRLs don’t deactivate when the headlights are turned on, and fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.”
DRLs that fail to deactivate could cause glare for oncoming drivers and increase the risk of a crash and injury.
Certified GM technicians will be instructed to update the body control module software at the dealership, or through an over-the-air (OTA) update, free of charge.
Besides the 2022-2023 GMC Sierra 1500, the recall also impacts several other GM vehicles, including:
2022-2023 Chevy Silverado 1500
2022-2023 Chevy Suburban
2022-2023 Chevy Tahoe
2022-2023 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL
2021-2023 Buick Envision
2020-2023 Cadillac CT4
2020-2023 Cadillac CT5
2022-2023 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV
