GM Recalls Certain Cadillac ELR Vehicles Due to Software Issue
about 650 vehicles are included in the recall
what's being recalled?
General Motors (GM) is recalling certain model year 2014 Cadillac ELR vehicles not equipped with adaptive cruise control.
what's the problem?
In these vehicles, the electronic stability control (ESC) system software may inhibit certain ESC diagnostics, preventing the system from alerting the driver that the ESC system is partially or fully disabled. As such, these vehicles fail to conform with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 126, 'Electronic Stability Control Systems.'
If the driver is not alerted to an ESC malfunction they may continue driving with a disabled ESC system which may result in loss of directional control, increasing the risk of a crash.
GM will notify owners of the recalled Cadillac ELR vehicles, and dealers will recalibrate the Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM), free of charge.
