Another major car manufacturer is issuing a recall for an airbag issue.

General Motors has issued a recall of 4.3 million vehicles (3.6 million in the U.S.). The issue stems from a few cases of the car’s sensing and diagnostic module, which controls when the airbags are deployed would go into test mode, preventing the front air bags of inflation. It could also render the seatbelts useless.

The defect has reportedly been linked to one death and three injuries. The first case happened in May when a Chevy Silverado crashed and its airbags failed to deploy.

The current recall is for recent models (2014-2017) of GM’s Buick LaCrosse, Chevrolet Corvette, Silverado 1500, Chevrolet Tahoe, Suburban and Silverado HD and Cadillac Escalade.
