2022 Chevy Colorado Heated Seat Retrofit Under Way7
Customers who own a 2022 Chevy Colorado affected by a recent constraint for the heated seat comfort feature are now eligible for a feature retrofit under a new GM customer satisfaction program.
Per previous exclusive GM Authority coverage, certain units of the 2022 Chevy Colorado were under constraint for the heated seat feature. Affected units were produced between November 15th of 2021 and February 21st of 2022, with the constraint put in place as a result of the global microchip shortage.
The heated seats feature for the 2022 Chevy Colorado is tagged with RPO code KA1. The feature is included with the Luxury Package, tagged with RPO code PCK.
The heated seat constraint for the 2022 Chevy Colorado has since been resolved. However, for those customers affected by the constraint, this comfort feature is now available for a free dealer retrofit. Dealers are instructed to replace the front seat heater control module, reprogram the body control module, and in some vehicles, reprogram the HVAC control module.
As GM Authority has covered previously, several other GM vehicles affected by the recent heated seats constraint are also available for a free dealer retrofit, including the Chevy Camaro, Cadillac CT4, Chevy Malibu, and Buick Encore GX, among others.
As a reminder, the 2022 Chevy Colorado is the eighth model year for the second-gen pickup, ushering in only a few small updates and changes compared to the preceding, lightly updated 2021 model year. Under the hood, the 2022 Chevy Colorado can be had with a few powerplant options, including the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine, which is rated at 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, and the 2.8L I4 LWN turbodiesel Duramax, which is rated at 181 horsepower and 396 pound-feet of torque. The naturally aspirated 2.5L I4 LCV gasoline engine, rated at 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque, is no longer available.
The Chevy Colorado rides on the GMT 31XX platform, while production takes place at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri.

Need to get busy on Silverado. Customers are wearing my a $ $ out. Call GM don’t call me. I can’t do squat. I’m really sorry about the delay, I just can’t help.
Well written article Jonathon! Appreciate the summary of vehicles approved and in process for retrofits. Nice reminder to show GM progress on retrofits. Also appreciate the reminder of the Colorado configuration.
GM is just a WOKE talking head company. I’ve spent my last nickel on GM vehicles.
If you find one that’s different, let us all know. They’re all in the same club.
Saw someone mention they had to wait for their F350 for nearly 11 months after ordering it. The whiners on this page are funny, like it is just a GM problem they can fix.
Look at the sales posted, GM had huge gains and moved more vehicles because they would send them out with a few luxury items missing so it at least gets sold and used rather than sit on a lot for months on end. Both the consumers and sellers win in that instance. The buyer doesn’t have to get the vehicle if it is missing a few items at the moment, but it doesn’t mean they won’t complain it seems like mikey and his seats… He knew it wasn’t working but chose to buy and complain.
Anybody know when the chips will be ready for installation on 2022 GMC SIERRA 1500 limited edition. Still waiting
As I understand, all GM vehicles are now in process for heated seat retrofit. Have not heard anything about ventilated seat and heated steering wheel retrofit for any GM products, but my dealer says it’s going to be 3 separate events. My 2500 is almost 1 year since I picked it up, still not even able to schedule appointment. My dealer says it’s going to be January or February at the earliest. For those who say we purchased vehicles with known missing parts, what they don’t understand is that we were all told would have all of the missing parts within 60 to 90 days. As many people are approaching 1 year ownership without even the first of multiple parts being retrofit, while watching brand new vehicles show up on dealer lots with all the parts, one has to wonder at what point this is going to go from a supply issue to a legal issue for GM.
