General Motors (GM) is recalling 3,203 model year 2021 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV vehciles.

The automaker notes 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, agency report said.

In daytime, if night mode is active, the telltale lights may not be visible.

The company said if the telltale lights are not visible, the driver and front passenger might not know that the front passenger is unbuckled or has a deactivated airbag, increasing the risk of passenger injury.

In regard to what to do to correct the error, GM will notify affected owners, and dealers will update the software free of charge.

The current recall is expected to begin February 1, 2021.

In the meantime, owners may contact Cadillac Customer Service on (800) 458-8006, and GM’s number for this recall is N202319980.
