General Motors is recalling 3,203 model year 2021 Cadillac Escalades and Escalade ESVs.
The front passenger seat belt and airbag status telltale lights in the overhead console may be set to "night mode" when the vehicle is started using remote start or when the vehicle is turned off and re-started after approximately ten minutes without opening the door.
In daytime, if night mode is active, the telltale lights may not be visible.
If the telltale lights are not visible, the driver and front passenger may not know that the front passenger is unbuckled or has a deactivated airbag, increasing the risk of passenger injury.
What to do
GM will notify owners, and dealers will update the software free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin February 1, 2021.
Owners may contact Cadillac customer service at (800) 458-8006. GM's number for this recall is N202319980.
