General Motors has started a service update to address an issue in certain examples of the 2022 model-year Buick Envision compact crossover due to a software issue that may cause the right-hand-side reading lamps to become inoperative.
The problem: in affected vehicles, the passenger-side reading lamps in the front and rear may be inoperable when the user attempts to switch them on manually due to a software glitch that was inadvertently caused by a previous over-the-air-update.
The hazards: this problem does not pose a safety or reliability risk to affected vehicles, however owners will want to ensure this problem is addressed, as the vehicle’s passenger side reading lamps will not work otherwise.
The fix: dealer technicians will be instructed to inspect the overhead console reading lights in affected vehicles and replace them if necessary. These repairs will be performed at no cost to the vehicle owner.
Affected components: passenger-side overhead console reading light.
