DETROIT – General Motors has issued a recall of one 2021 model-year Chevrolet Tahoe and one GMC Yukon to remedy an incorrect programming of the vehicles’ brake system control module (BSCM) during a dealer service appointment.
A company investigation uncovered the problem, and it has since issued service updated N212340971 with the proper programming information.

According to federal National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Part 573 Safety Recall Report 21V-579, the safety risk is: “Stability control, traction control, and anti-lock braking may not perform as intended in certain low traction conditions. Braking performance will be reduced when towing a trailer equipped with trailer brakes. There may be increased risk of a crash.”
The problem occurred in the Chevy Tahoe and GMC Yukon when dealer service technicians “entered an incorrect vehicle identification number (VIN) in the service tool, resulting in programming a calibration designed for another vehicle configuration.”
These two vehicles are the only ones affected, according to the agency’s reporting based on GM’s investigation.
Dealers have been notified as to the recall and owners are scheduled for notification beginning Sept. 13.
