The problem: starting on December 2nd, 2021, GM built certain 2022 and 2023 model year Chevy Corvette Stingrays without a functional Rear Park Assist feature. Customers who purchased these vehicles were given a $50 credit in lieu of the feature’s absence and a promised future retrofit.
GM produced the Corvettes without a functional Rear Park Assist feature due to the semiconductor shortage, which was affecting GM and many other automakers at the time. For instance, the Chevy Camaro and the Chevy Silverado pickup were also affected, but these models are not included in this specific retrofit program.
The fix: the retrofit described in the service bulletin is carried out at dealerships. The dealer will replace the Rear Park Assist control module, program it, and then set up the serial data gateway module, which restores the Rear Park Assist feature to functionality.
The retrofit program is in effect until March 31st, 2026.

- 2022 Chevy Corvette C8 Stingray
- Only 2023 Chevy Corvette Stingrays with an early production date were affected out of the 2023 model year.

Number of affected vehicles: it’s unclear at this time how many vehicle units are affected by this issue in total.
Owners should: affected Chevy Corvette owners were notified of the non-functional Rear Park Assist feature at the time of purchase. They were also notified that they would be eligible for a retrofit at no additional cost once the necessary parts became available. 2022 and 2023 Corvette owners with questions about the retrofit can call Chevy’s customer service number, referencing the GM customer satisfaction program number below.
