I think when they say the drl will not turn OFF they really mean they will not DIM. I cannot think of one modern vehicle I've seen in real life that doesn't have an outer ring or a halo or a C or a whatever shape the drl shape may be that is not illuminated when the headlights are on. Certainly not any newer body style GM suv, I see them all over the place with headlights on and the C illuminated. I think the recall is for people like the OP who stated his drl now stays bright when the headlights are on and do not dim like they are supposed to. There is no way GM is going to make the C lights on the gm or chevy or the strips on the escalade go completely dark when the headlights are on, I just don't believe that to be true.Exactly correct. Except that the DRL’s will go off w/ the headlights once the Recall BCM software gets applied; as that is what the recall is for: Noncompliance w/ Federal Motor Vehicle safety standard requiring DRL to extinguish when headlights are on.
As for the illuminated front emblem they are dim already, at least ours is. It is tied to the parking lights so it only comes on when they come on (headlights or fog lights on or switch put in parking light position) and then the drls dim to the same brightness level of the emblem.
