Subject:   18195 - Safety Recall - Sensing and Diagnostic Module Fault State

Models:   2019 Chevrolet Corvette equipped with ZR1 (Performance Package -Special Coupe)

To:           All General Motors Dealers

Condition:  General Motors has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 2019 model-year Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 vehicles. In these vehicles, if the sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) is exposed to extremely hard braking and sustained acceleration events under certain track conditions, the SDM may enter a fault state and will not return to normal operation until battery power is removed from the system. In this faulted state, the SDM will not provide crash sensing or deploy air bags in the event of a crash.

Correction:  Dealers will reprogram the SDM with updated software.

General Motors is releasing Safety Recall 18195 today.  The total number of U.S. vehicles involved is approximately 489.  Please see the attached bulletin for details.
