Affected vehicles include model-year 2021 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV SUVs, Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe SUVs, and GMC Yukon and Yukon XL SUVs. The daytime running lights may not deactivate when the headlights are on, which may cause glare, reducing visibility and increasing the risk of a crash.

As a fix, dealers will update the body control module software for free. Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC parent automaker GM will begin notifying owners Dec. 19, but those with further questions can call Cadillac at 800-458-8006, Chevrolet at 800-222-1020, GM at 866-694-6546 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
