GMC has announced it is recalling 88,129 Terrain SUVs for faulty software that could prevent airbags from deploying in a crash.
The recall affects 2018 model year Terrain vehicles and according to the American automaker, the issue occurs if a software module fails. If this does occur, an airbag sensor might not power down properly when the vehicle is turned off, causing it to possibly not operate properly when the vehicle is restarted. As a result, the Terrain’s airbags may not deploy in a crash.
If an affected vehicle does have the issue, an airbag warning lamp will illuminate and the driver information center will display a “service restraint system” message. In addition, warning chimes will sound.
