General Motors LLC is recalling 40,638 model year 2014-16 Buick Lacrosse and Chevrolet Spark EV, Caprice PPV and SS vehicles; 2014-17 Buick Encore and Chevrolet Corvette, Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 vehicles; 2015-16 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Tahoe, Trax, Suburban and Silverado 2500 and 3500 and GMC Yukon and Yukon XL vehicles, and 2015-17 GMC Sierra HD 2500 and 3500 vehicles. While being previously remedied for another recall (16V-651), the affected vehicles may not have received the complete software update necessary to remedy the recall condition. Without the update, certain driving conditions may cause the air bag sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) software to activate a diagnostic test. During this test, deployment of the frontal air bags and the seat belt pretensioners would not occur in the event of a crash.GM will notify owners, and dealers will reflash the SDM software. Vehicles that have had a previous air bag deployment will have the SDM replaced. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. GM's number for this recall is 17287.
