Certain units of the 2022 Cadillac CT5 and 2023 Cadillac CT5 built with a missing park assist feature during the semiconductor shortage are now eligible for a retrofit, after GM expanded Customer Satisfaction Program N222375790 to include a number of additional vehicle models.
Normally, the Rear Park Assist feature (RPO code UD7) is standard on the Luxury trim level of the Cadillac CT5 for both the 2022 and 2023 model years. However, because of the constraint, some 2022 CT5 Luxury trim sedans were produced without rear park assist from January 24th, 2022 to the end of the model year.
The constraint on Luxury trim units of the 2023 Cadillac CT5 affected certain vehicles built between start of production and September 2022. RPO code 00Y is included on the window stickers of 2022 and 2023 CT5 Luxury trim vehicles produced without this General Motors active safety feature to make them readily identifiable.
Turning to the other trims and variants, the Premium Luxury trim and Sport trim of the standard Cadillac CT5, the CT5-V and the CT5-V Blackwing are all normally equipped with the Front and Rear Park Assist feature (RPO code UD5) as standard for the 2022 and 2023 model years. Notably, this is a different system the rear park assist (UD7) with which the base Luxury trim is equipped.
Front and rear park assist was unavailable on the Premium Luxury and Sport trims of the 2022 Cadillac CT5 for units produced between January 24th, 2022 and the end of the model year. This is also the case for the 2022 CT5-V. Constraint on the park assist feature also began on January 24th for the 2022 CT5-V Blackwing but was lifted sooner, by April 10th.
The 2023 CT5-V Blackwing was shielded from the constraint and was produced with fully operational front and rear park assist. However, for the Premium Luxury and Sport trims of the 2023 Cadillac CT5, and the 2023 CT5-V, the feature was unavailable from the start of production through September 2022. All affected 2022 and 2024 CT5 sedans carry a window sticker RPO code 00Z.
Park assist availability was limited for other Cadillac models at the same time. The specific nameplates affected were the Cadillac CT4, the CT4-V, the CT4-V Blackwing, and the Cadillac Escalade luxury SUV. Certain trim levels of these vehicles were shielded from the constraint.
Owners of affected 2022 or 2023 Cadillac CT5 units are eligible to have the rear park assist or front and rear park assist feature retrofitted to function at no charge. Cadillac dealership personnel are instructed to fix the problem by replacing the park assist control module and setting up the serial data gateway module to restore park assist. The program is in effect through July 31st, 2026.
