REDESIGN YEARS 2011
There is one recall and eight service campaigns of note:
2011-12 models have campaigns to: add a reinforcement bracket to protect the battery pack (11342E); inspect/secure the driver airbag retainers (12020B); and exchange the 120-volt charge cord with a new one (11188a).
2011-13 Volts have a service campaign to reprogram the power inverter module to prevent a “no start” situation (13202).
2012 models may be recalled to install a new brake pressure modulator valve to prevent the ABS module from not releasing pressure after activation (13184).
All Volts may have a “Battery too cold. Plug in to warm” message on the instrument cluster and the vehicle may fail to start at temperatures below -14-degrees Fahrenheit (2011-12) or -22 degrees Fahrenheit (2013-preset). This is the designed working temperature for the Volt. If you live where it can get colder than this, plan for a way to keep the car and battery warm.
2012-13 models may have a RESS battery coolant leak and need it refilled (14114), and the OnStar software needs an update (12187B).
2013 Volts may need the hybrid powertrain control module reprogrammed (12241).
2014 models may need refrigerant oil added to the A/C compressor (14122).
