Thanks to a member of the Corvette Forum, we have learned that 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 doesn’t have any official information yet.
Please note that the recall only affects 2021 models and as it’s 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.
