Hi TeeJay. Thanks for contacting us today. This is typically a computer software glitch with GM cars. It is also possible that an electrical relay is either damaged, has a loose electrical connection or even an electrical glitch behind the dash. This is something you should have inspected by the GM dealership as it’s possible that this could be covered under a warranty.
