the problem: the sensing diagnostic module - which senses a crash and deploys the necessary airbags - may not power down correctly when the vehicle is shut off, causing it to be inoperative when the vehicle is restarted and unable to detect a crash or command the necessary airbag deployment, increasing the risk of an injury in the event of a crash.
the fix: dealers will reprogram the sensing diagnostic module with updated software for free.
what owners should do: gmc manufacturer gm did not immediately provide an owner-notification schedule. owners can call the automaker at 800-462-8782, the national highway traffic safety administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
