Bought my 22 Blazer in December and received email a couple months ago that the process was starting and would be notified when it’s time. Have heard nothing. I am going to be angry if I don’t get them by December. It is ridiculous to be waiting a year for something that the new customers are receiving now.
I have not even received an email the process is starting. I tried chatting with Chevy again today and they said it is being done in phases but wouldn’t give any additional info.They said the dealership has contacts on more information again. My dealership has been working with me but they can’t find anything out either. The process is very frustrating

I understood when I received my local Chevy dealer's allocation for my 2022 3LT and configured it, the chip would be missing and provided afterwards.
What I did not realize was just how long it would take, for me it is going on 6 months, with no projected date, just I will receive a letter, my local dealership has no way to check a projected date also, so I am told. My real question is, this chip controls the total use of features that have been disabled since I received the vehicle, Will Chevrolet honor a 3yr or 36,000 miles base on the date the chip was installed, and those features are now working?

Thus, in legal thoughts, how can you be given a bumper-to-bumper warranty until everything is installed and working?

You're supposed to get an email from GM, not the dealer when the chip is in and to go in and have it installed. The dealer you purchased from should have a letter in their deal jacket that they were supposed to give to you so you can bring that letter in once you've got the notification from GM the chip(s) are in. If you do not have said letter, then you need to contact your purchasing dealer and get a copy of the letter so you'll be ready once you're notified by GM. That is how it's supposed to work. Your dealer won't know once you've been notified by GM, hence the reason for the letter at the time of purchase by the dealer. All of us that are missing chips are being dealt with the same way and you should have received a small discount at the time of purchase because the chip(s) were missing.

Legally speaking, you don't have the chip(s) and they gave you a small discount for that, so there is no legal recourse. We're all at the mercy of the manufacturer right now for the notification.

It is a frustrating situation for sure. When I ordered it was months before they made the retrofit decisions. I found out once I learned it was at customs at the port. It was built12/21.

I still love my Blazer but after driving a 23 Traverse that has all the chips last couple weeks it’s going to be hard going back to missing those features again.

A quick update...

I received my letter from GM today in the mail to retrofit the chips for my heated seats front and rear. I purchased my Blazer in January 2022. Calling tomorrow for an appointment and, hopefully, a quick install.

I’m glad you finally have been notified.

I still haven’t received anything from GM however my dealership kept checking and my Blazer finally came up for the “recall” and were able to order my seat chips. Eta Wednesday for the parts. Purchased January 2022. Still no eta on steering wheel retrofit.

My Dealer is ordering the module that is associated with the heated seats, front & rear. From what they are telling me, if you have chips for the heated steering wheel and the seats, it will be two modules they order. Mine is just for seats, so they are ordering one. The module, from what they tell me, exists behind the radio. They would have to remove the radio and maybe other parts to get to the location.

Would be interesting if anyone else waiting for chips has been told the location of that/those module(s).

My dealership was only able to order the modules for my front heated/ventilated seats and rear heated seats. The heated steering wheel modules aren’t showing available yet.
I was not told where the modules are located and didn’t ask at all. only that it is a quick install and would be back to me same day.

Yeah, mine said probably same day, too. However, they said they have a bit of a backlog and couldn't guarantee they wouldn't keep it over to the next day. I'm in no hurry. They won't get me in until after Thanksgiving, so I'm estimating a couple of weeks from today before I get in. Man, I live in South Texas, so I really don't even need heated seats and steering wheel... lol. I like cooling my ass more than heating it. My wife, on the other hand, likes heating her ass more than cooling it.

Go figure... :rolleyes:

Lol completely understand that. I’m in California so I like both. Heat in winter and cooling in summer. Mine goes in Dec 5. If it wasn’t for thanksgiving they would’ve done it this week and I’m out of town next week.

I did finally get a letter from GM today. It only talks about the seats and said may still be waiting for other parts.
