Cadillac Lyriq recalled, discontinued due to Dash screen problem

About 60 percent Cadillac Lyriq’s the dash is occupied by the screen, by my unscientific estimate. Then, if the 33-inch screen goes dark, that’s a pretty significant problem. General Motors acknowledged one such problem with the luxury brand’s electric SUV this week.

It’s a software glitch, which can be triggered by opening the door during the car’s start or disable animation when it’s parked, follow GM agency. That can lead to a blank screen, which can only be remedied by powering the vehicle on. The Lyriq’s ultra-wide display houses both the dashboard and infotainment functions, so this is a big deal when it’s out.

Seeing as GM still hasn’t delivered many Lyriqs, this recall is only a small batch, including only 186 units. The sale is also temporarily suspended for this model, presumably because GM is working on installing a software fix for its unsold SUVs.

Based on National Highway Traffic Safety Administration data, 16 owners have complained about this error. Unfortunately, it’s not something that can fly through the air. Lyriq owners will have to bring the vehicle in for service so technicians can install the patch. Notices will be sent to stakeholders on November 7.

My Ford Fiesta’s Sync system has an issue where occasionally media simply won’t play for no obvious reason, and turning the car off and on doesn’t always set things right. It’s annoying, but at least I don’t have to rely on that center screen as a backup camera; nor to check how fast I’m going, nor my estimated range. You would’ve hoped that with every automaker becoming increasingly dependent on software and displays, they’d take more care to ensure everything’s reliable. Strangely, the opposite has happened. Cars have become very similar to video game in that way.
