Recall is not released yet from GM as I stated in previous post in previous thread. The notice was dated 02/12/15 notifying dealers of the UPCOMING recall but states they are still waiting to get parts in order to release it. It also states: To correct this condition, a revised roof console accessory switch trim plate will be available that recesses the sunroof control switches deeper into the panel
I will post full letter again, all your questions are answered in there the best anyone will be able to answer them at this point:

STOP DELIVERY ORDER
Effective immediately, stop the delivery of certain 2013-2015 model year Cadillac ATS vehicles in new or used vehicle inventory. General Motors has notified Transport Canada and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) about an upcoming noncompliance recall that involves these vehicles. The GM recall number is 15119.
Until further instructions are received, all 2013-2015 model year Cadillac ATS vehicles that are in dealer new or used vehicle inventory and equipped with (RPO CF5) sunroof must be held and not delivered to customers, dealer-traded, released to auction, or used for demonstration purposes. It is a violation of federal law for a dealer to deliver a new motor vehicle or any new or used item of motor vehicle equipment (including a tire) covered by this notification under a sale or lease until the noncompliance is remedied.
General Motors has decided that 2013 – 2015 model year Cadillac ATS vehicles equipped with power-operated roof panel systems fail to conform to Canada/Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (C/FMVSS) No.118, “Power-Operated Window, Partition, and Roof Panel Systems”. The roof panels in these vehicles will auto-close when the non-recessed portion of the “Slide” or “Tilt” switches are pressed and the roof panel is open. Because these switches are not fully recessed, they can be actuated when performing the test procedure set forth in S6(a) of C/FMVSS No. 118, which results in the roof panel auto-closing when open.
To correct this condition, a revised roof console accessory switch trim plate will be available that recesses the sunroof control switches deeper into the panel.
We are working with the supplier to obtain the required parts as quickly as possible. When a sufficient quantity is available, the recall bulletin will be released and dealers can begin repairing vehicles.
The Investigate Vehicle History screen in the Global Warranty Management system will be updated the week of February 16, 2015 for this upcoming noncompliance recall. This action has been taken to assist dealers with determining which vehicles are involved so they can properly respond to customer inquiries. Please note the "N/A" under Release Date and the "Incomplete – Remedy Not Yet Available" message under Status. This means release of the recall bulletin is still pending and dealers should not attempt to perform any repairs at this time.
The attached file provides the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of the involved vehicles that have been identified as currently being in dealer new vehicle inventory. It is sorted by dealer Business Associate Code (BAC) for easy reference. Your dealership's BAC will not be listed if none of the involved vehicles are currently in your new vehicle inventory. A file identifying involved vehicles in dealer used inventory is not available.
Additional information will be provided in the near future.
