General Motors will be notifying the owners of nearly 340,000 of its popular large SUVs about a recall. The problem is that the vehicles’ running lights stay on after the regular headlights are on. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the problem affects some 2021 Chevrolet Tahoes and Suburbans, Cadillac Escalades and ESVs, GMC Yukons and Yukon XLs.

The Problem Forcing the Recall

NHTSA says that having all the lights on at the same time could cause glare for oncoming drivers and increase the possibility of a crash. It is also against federal motor vehicle safety guidelines. GM says it has no reports of any crashes or injuries because of the running light situation.

How GM Will Solve the Problem

Owners of the vehicles will be notified by mail starting December 19, 2022. Owners will have to take the vehicles back to the dealership where service technicians can update the software that controls the lights and correct the issue.

The NHTSA campaign number for this recall is 22V827. GM’s number for this recall is N222382220.
