Replace Accelerator Pedal
Rivian Automotive, LLC has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety existed in certain model year 2022 Rivian R1S and R1T vehicles that were built with an early revision accelerator pedal.
What Is the problem?
The accelerator pedal may not detect when the driver releases the pedal in hot cabin temperatures, failing to activate "auto-hold" or "park" as intended. If this occurs, the vehicle may not automatically go into “auto-hold” or “park”. This condition may cause the vehicle to creep forward. If this occurs, the driver will be required to take other action to place the vehicle into “hold” or “park”, such as depressing the brake pedal and/or pressing the “park” button. If the vehicle does not automatically go into “auto-hold” or "park”, this may increase the risk of a crash.
What will Rivian do?
Rivian has already implemented a new software update (2023.46.01 or 2023.50). Software update should take an hour to complete.
Rivian will also replace all subject accelerator pedals, free of charge.
What should you do?
At your earliest convenience, install software update 2023.46.01.
Rivian’s Service Support Team will contact you by end of February, 2024 once we’re ready to schedule your pedal replacement appointment.
