2019 Buick and Chevrolet - Illuminated Airbag Warning

On 2018-12-03 11:41:15

According to the defect report, the sensing diagnostic module (SDM) may have not been activated before the vehicles were shipped. This means that the airbags will not deploy during an accident and could increase the risk of injury to occupants.


The vehicles affected by this recall include:


  • 2019 Buick Encore
  • 2019 Chevrolet Spark
  • 2019 Chevrolet Traverse
  • 2019 Chevrolet Trax



Drives will be alerted of a problem through an airbag malfunction indicator lamp illuminated on the instrument panel when the vehicle is turned on. Most other SDM functions, such as seat belt reminders, event data recording and post collision notification will also not work.
