Chevrolet has announced that it has finally developed a solution to remedy the potential battery fire issue suffered by some 2017-2019 Bolt electric vehicles.
There it was a recall in 2020 on the car because five versions suffered battery fires. Now the company has developed a way to fix this problem. Bolt owners who are affected can take their cars to their local GM dealership, and a mechanic there should now be able to diagnose if their car needs to have any part of the battery replaced. 2019 Bolt EV owners can get services right now, depending on Hunting. The 2017 and 2018 models must wait until the end of May.
Since the recall, GM has implemented a 90 percent limit on Bolt EV batteries. Once you take your Bolt to the mechanic, they can also remove it if your car is in tip-top condition. Additionally, GM will install new software that can help detect battery problems before they reach a critical point.
GM says this diagnostic software will also be shipped to other Bolts and EVs in the future, as well as a safety measure.
