What's the Problem?
This recall affects all 2017-2018 and certain 2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV vehicles, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
"The high voltage battery could catch fire when charged to full or nearly full capacity," NHTSA said. "A battery fire increases the risk of injury."
GM is notifying owners and, as an interim repair, dealers will reprogram the hybrid propulsion control module 2 (HPCM2) to limit the full charge to 90%.
Until then, owners should activate either the Hill Top Reserve (2017 and 2018 models) or Target Charge Level (2019 models) feature in their vehicle to limit the charge level to 90%, or park outside.
This recall began on November 23, 2020.
