— General Motors daytime running lights have caused a recall of more than 338,000 vehicles equipped with running lights that may not deactivate when the headlights are on.
The daytime running lights must go off when the headlights are turned on due to the glare to oncoming drivers. The issue also violates federal safety standards.
The GM daytime running lights recall includes these model year 2021 vehicles:
- GMC Yukon
- GMC Yukon XL
- Chevrolet Tahoe
- Chevrolet Suburban
- Cadillac Escalade
- Cadillac Escalade ESV
GM learned of the problem following vehicle validation testing that found the daytime running lights didn't turn off on certain 2021 models. GM opened an investigation which traced the problem to the body control module software.
GM plans on mailing recall letters December 19, 2022, and dealerships will update the body control module software.
