Wireless Phone Charging Option No Longer Available on Some 2021 Models

The Wireless Phone Charging option is no longer available on most 2021 Tahoe, Suburban and Yukon models beginning in July 2021 due to the industry-wide shortage of semiconductors. The wireless charging pad is located at the front of the center console. (Fig. 18)

Affected vehicles will have the added RPO 00C (Not Equipped with Wireless Charging). RPO 00C will be used to identify vehicles built without the wireless phone charging capability. Wiring, connectors and fuses related to wireless charging functions will remain unchanged.

The wireless charging pad mat with the charging graphic will be removed from the center console. (Fig. 19) The wireless charging module will be replaced with a non-functioning communications module that will not be capable of the wireless charging function.

Any vehicle that includes RPO 00C is not equipped with wireless phone charging technology, even though the vehicle also includes RPO K4C (Wireless Charging), which is retained based on other components that remain on the vehicle. Any vehicle with RPO 00C and RPO K4C cannot be updated to restore the wireless charging functionality.

These production changes regarding the availability of wireless phone charging are currently expected to remain in place for the remainder of the 2021 model year.
