2021 Cadillac CT5 Gets Fix For Engine Control Module

A service update has been issued by Cadillac to address an issue affecting the engine control modules in certain units of the 2021 Cadillac CT5 luxury sedan. 

The problem: certain units of the 2021 Cadillac CT5 with the turbocharged 2.0L I4 engine (production code LSY) have an engine control module (ECM) that may not properly diagnose, may not set a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC), or may not illuminate the malfunction indicator light (check engine light) if certain issues with the vehicle’s catalytic converter were to occur. 

The hazards: if a fault occurs with the catalytic converter and the ECM does not diagnose or set a code, the vehicle owner may not be made aware of said fault. 

The fix: an update for the ECM will be made over-the-air (OTA). This procedure may be performed remotely by the customer. Alternatively, customers may take their 2021 Cadillac CT5 to a preferred Cadillac dealer to have the procedure performed by a technician. 

Affected vehicles: 2021 Cadillac CT5

Number of affected vehicles: Cadillac did not indicate how many units of the 2021 Cadillac CT5 may be affected by this condition. 

Affected components: engine control module (ECM).

It’s important to note that this is a service update, not a recall, meaning that it will expire at the end of the vehicle’s New Vehicle Limited Warranty Period.
