General Motors voluntarily recalls GMC Hummer EV and BrightDrop EV600 for battery connector issue

General Motors has announced a “Customer Satisfaction Program” with the GMC Hummer EV and BrightDrop EV600 over a battery connector issue.

The recall by anything but its name is over specific models high-voltage battery pack connectors.

The issue is that the connector has the potential to corrode and let water enter the pack itself.

If there is an issue with the connector, a warning light may appear on the truck’s dash.

GM did not mention if there were any hazards associated with the issue but is fixing the problem free of charge.

Unlike other recalls we have seen in the past, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is not involved in this one as of yet.

However, if there are future issues, the NHTSA may get involved.

The fix is a simple one for owners.

GM certified technicians will apply more AC Delco RTV Engine Sealant to the connector.

This additional layer of protection should protect the connector from any future corrosion or issues with water.

As per GM, 424 EVs are impacted by this issue. This includes both the 2022 GMC Hummer EV and GM’s BrightDrop EV600.

GM will notify owners directly if their vehicle is included in the Customer Satisfaction Program.

If you are notified, the fix can be made by appointment at any local GM dealer.
