Like a variety of different Chevy models, the 2022 Chevy Blazer was previously affected by a constraint on the crossover’s heated and ventilated seats. Now, however, dealerships have begun to contact 2022 Chevy Blazer owners affected by this constraint informing them that their vehicle is now available for a feature retrofit.
For those readers who may have missed it, the 2022 Chevy Blazer was one of several Chevy vehicles affected by a constraint on heated and ventilated seats as a result of the global microchip shortage. The availability of these features was put under constraint last November, with affected units produced between November 15th, 2021, and February 21st, 2022. As GM Authority covered previously, GM resolved the constraint for these features in February.
Now, customers who purchased a 2022 Chevy Blazer affected by these constraints are eligible for a free feature retrofit. Dealers are contacting affected customers and encouraging them to bring their vehicle in, with technicians instructed to replace the front and rear seat heater control modules, reprogram the body control module, and on some vehicles, reprogram the HVAC control module. Some vehicles also require an additional retrofit of the right and left front seat cushion ventilation blower.
Normally, the 2022 Chevy Blazer offers heated front seats (RPO code KA1) as optional on 2LT trim levels via the Convenience and Driver Confidence Package (ZL5). Heated front seats are normally included as standard on 3LT, RS, and Premier trim levels. Meanwhile, heated rear outboard seats (RPO code KA6) and ventilated front seats (RPO code KU9) are normally included with the Enhanced Convenience Package (RPO code ZL8) on 2022 Chevy Blazer RS and Premier trim levels. These features are not offered for 2LT and 3LT trim levels.
As a reminder, the 2022 Chevy Blazer is offered with two engine options, namely the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine and naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine. Under the skin is the GM C1 platform, with production taking place at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico.
