General Motors (GM) has recalled more than 825,000 vehicles in the United States and Canada for a problem that prevents the daytime running lights from turning off when the headlights are activated, it was learned this Wednesday.
GM said in documents filed with the National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) that some 740,108 vehicles affected by the recall are in the United States and the rest in Canada.
The recall affects the 2020-2023 Cadillac CT4 and CT5 models; 2021-2023 Buick Envision; 2022-2023 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV; 2022-2023 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Suburban and Tahoe; GM Sierra 1500, Yukon and Yukon XL 2022-2023.
North American regulations require vehicles to drive on the road with the daytime running lights off when the headlights are activated, fearing that the increased glare could cause accidents.
GM identified the cause of the problem in the software of a control module that under certain circumstances may work.
The automaker told US federal authorities that from January 2023 it will update the software free of charge to fix the problem.
