Customers affected by a recent constraint for the heated and ventilated seat features in the 2022 Chevy Camaro will be happy to learn that GM is now retrofitting these features as part of a new GM customer satisfaction program.
Previously, the heated and ventilated seat features for the 2022 Chevy Camaro were under constraint as a result of the global microchip shortage, per previous GM Authority coverage. Heated front seats are tagged with RPO code KA1, while ventilated front seats are tagged with RPO code KQV. Both features are usually equipped as standard on 2022 Chevy Camaro 2LT, 3LT, 2SS, and ZL1 trim levels.
Now, however, a new GM customer satisfaction program makes units of the 2022 Chevy Camaro affected by this constraint eligible for a free dealer retrofit. Dealers are instructed to replace the front seat heater control module, reprogram the body control module, and for some vehicles, reprogram the HVAC control module.
It should be noted that some vehicles may require an additional retrofit of the left and right front seat cushion ventilation blower in order to restore functionality of the ventilated seat feature. Unfortunately, the GM customer satisfaction program detailed here does not address this separate constraint for the front driver and passenger ventilated seat cushion blower motor, which is expected to be covered in a future customer satisfaction bulletin.
That said, several other GM vehicles beyond the 2022 Chevy Camaro that were affected by recent constraints for the heated and ventilated seat features are covered under the new customer satisfaction program, including the Cadillac CT4, Chevy Malibu, Buick Encore GX, and others.
As a reminder , the 2022 Chevy Camaro is offered with a variety of engine options, including the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG gasoline engine, the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT1 gasoline engine, and the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine. The GM Alpha platform provides the bones, while production takes place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan.
