Anyone seen this? includes 2020 -23 CT4 and CT5 sedans.
Looks like this one should be. (Blue text)Not all updates are available to the end user OTA. Some computer updates must be performed at the dealer. Most of the time, it’s to ensure a safety/compliance issue has been addressed.
It is an OTA fix. But how do we go about scheduling that or making it happen?
OTAs should get pushed to the car. Go to system>updates on the nav screen and you can check. System>preferences to configure how they are delivered. System>about to see update history.Mine is in garage that has WiFi so should get updated. Is there a way to check if/what updates it may have received?
As far as when the owner has it, they have to initiate the update process on the screen. IDK if it can be "forced" to a car. It seems the update file is pushed to the car automatically (like a cell phone update), unless you happen to check for updates and your timing is such that it is available and hasn't already been downloaded.I have a related question. For OTA available updates, what happens to cars that haven’t been delivered? Are they still able to receive those updates or not until someone configures it on the car? I ask because this may be one of if not the one thing keeping my car on hold at auto port and not being delivered. I’m curious to know if they’ll have to manually update the car or if it will be pushed over the air. Doubt the community knows that kind of detail but would love to find out somehow
Yeah, I would think the car would be shipped and any OTA or recall would be done on the dealer lot.After thinking about this, I doubt any car other than in the consumers hand or at a dealer lot would be updated OTA (or otherwise) since you have to acknowledge the update by starting the car or otherwise turning it "on". I can't imagine GM holding up cars and them doing it at the plant, or goat lot. It's not just CT4's and 5's. It's other Cadillacs plus Buick, GMC's, Chevy's. It would be a nightmare for GM to do it, as opposed to a dealer with 5, 10 or 30 vehicles on a lot.
PDI nonexistent at my dealer as I found out the hard way.Agreed. It would just be easier to ship them, and have the dealer do it as part of the PDI.
