Cadillac parent company, General Motors, has recalled certain units of the Cadillac XT4 in Canada to address an issue with the luxury crossover’s automatic headlamps.
The problem: Canadian regulations state that automatic headlights must illuminate when the ambient lighting level drops below 1,000 lux. However, the automatic headlights in affected vehicles may not illuminate soon enough when darkening outdoor ambient lighting conditions are detected.
The hazards: if the automatic headlamps do not illuminate soon enough, visibility could be reduced, thereby increasing the risk of a crash.
The fix: affected units of the Cadillac XT4 will be inspected by a dealership technician, and the body control module (BCM) software will be updated. This service will be performed at no cost to vehicle owners.
Affected components: automatic headlights, body control module.
