General Motors (GM.N) said on Wednesday it was recalling 825,000
trucks and SUVs in North America because daytime running
lights may not deactivate when the headlights are on, potentially causing excess glare.
The largest U.S. automaker said the recall covers various Cadillac CT4 and CT5; Buick Envision
Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Suburban
Tahoe, GMC Sierra 1500, Yukon, and Yukon XL vehicles from the 2020 through 2023 model years.
GM said the body control module software will be
updated by a dealer, or through an over-the-air update to address the issue.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said the vehicles do not comply
with a U.S. federal vehicle safety standard and glare could reduce visibility and increase the risk of a crash.
The recall is an expansion of a recall GM announced in November for the sale issue
GM said it is not aware of any injuries or accidents related to the recall.
The recall was prompted after a GM engineer submitted
a report about the issue in October prompting a company investigation.
