It's enough info to sue Boeing:
When it learned of the issue in 2017, Boeing says it conducted a safety review and concluded that the non-working alert did not affect airplane safety or operation. The review also concluded that the indicator could be decoupled from the optional indicator at the time of a future software update.

Yep it is still smoldering:

Pilots confronted Boeing with 737 Max fears after first fatal crash, audio reveals
Boeing appeared to play down concerns of a second crash
Audio release comes as House committee reviews FAA role


American Airlines (AA) pilots angrily confronted a Boeing official about an anti-stall system suspected in two fatal crashes of the manufacturer’s 737 Max aircraft, according to a new recording.

In audio obtained by CBS News, members of AA’s pilots’ union quizzed Boeing officials about the system – knowns as MCAS – in a tense meeting in November last year, weeks after a Lion Air Max crashed in Indonesia and four months before the loss of an Ethiopian Airlines Max. In total, 346 people died in the two crashes.

Boeing has been criticized for not disclosing how the MCAS anti-stall system worked – a move that allowed the company to avoid costly retraining.

“We flat-out deserve to know what is on our airplanes,” one pilot is heard saying in the recording.

“These guys didn’t even know the damn system was on the airplane – nor did anybody else,” another said.

The official, Boeing vice-president Mike Sinnett, claimed the Lion Air disaster was a once-in-a-lifetime accident.

He said: “I don’t know that understanding this system would’ve changed the outcome on this. In a million miles, you’re going to maybe fly this airplane, maybe once you’re going to see this, ever. So we try not to overload the crews with information that’s unnecessary so they actually know the information we believe is important.”

The pilots countered: “We’re the last line of defence to being in that smoking hole, and we need the knowledge.”
"Wat is het een gezellig boel hier".
