Looks like GM is having the dealer replace the whole airbag system and could take 2 weeks. If it takes longer, maybe I can work on a swap to a 2023 with lower MSRP and get Supercruise instead of Sun & Sound package this time.
Got a rental Trax for now. Not fun having to drive an ICE again.
Just drove past a Blazer on the way home. Don’t think it was electric. It looks a lot like a Bolt.guess I should expect to have to bring it back to the dealer a month or two after repair. If timing works out, maybe I'll just ask GM to let me MSRP swap to the Blazer EV I have reserved. LOL
Had the car in for service today. It turned out to be a faulty left rear side impact sensor.

Good idea. I can drive around the block and try. Yes, it does go away quickly.When I noticed OnStar not reporting the problem, I started taking photos... most of the time, the alert disappears before I can snap a pic
Hope @p7wang is fine alsoUpdate
I got lucky. It was a loose connector under the seat. Fretting corrosion was mentioned. Probally from sitting in the Lot. Tried to get to it myself but you gotta take the back of the seat and other part to get to it.
next question is the dealer found code DTC B0014,but neither OnStar or my OBD2 max could pick up the code. So the question is do you need
@The_DragonThey noted fretting corrosive which aggravated the connnection. But then you may ask why just that one connector.? May have been loose from initial install. The Nov people where probably pressured to perform fast. I guess.
Not sure why my 100$ scanner did not pick up the code
Are you sure they checked for the issue I had? Not sure you saw the Dealers tech narrative I posted.Looks like Lemon Law criteria has been met. 3 days from first repair + tomorrow would be 27 days so far = 30 days.
Maybe trade/repurchase for an Equinox EV RS, starting at $40K, would be better. We should be able to reserve the Equinox EV before my 1 yr ownership, which is March 2023.
Chevrolet will expand its lineup with the 2024 Equinox EV. It shares a name with the ICE model, but doesnât have much in common. In size it will be above the Bolt models and below the Blazer EV.www.carsdirect.com
Chevy's on a roll electrifying its future lineup, and the 2024 Equinox EV will be the electric offering in the brand's compact SUV portfolio.www.caranddriver.com
That may be the same or similar to what happened on my car. The connector was replaced under the seat that showed some fretting corrosion. Not sure why just the connectorThey diagnosed the problem coming from the wire harness under the drivers seat.
Cause they sat on those lots for months. Maybe not running them makes it worse.I don't understand how mine would corrode. Is it because of the vented seats blowing my moist air from my sweaty butt onto the connectors? LOL
So thier orginal diagnosis was the connector under the seat. That’s 3 out of 4. And 1 of those is unknown as no update.Well, that does not explain the connector failing again shortly after replacement. Well, I guess it could be the other side of the connector or a different connector this time. LOL
Wow PITAStill at the dealership. Guess I'll be driving the rental Equinox for a while. Fortunately, I got a new credit card with 0% APR until late Spring, so I just make the minimum payment for now and can carry over the balance.
Call (833 EV Chevy ) and report them. Everyone is getting loaners or rentals. That is very sloppy cust service. No other dealers there?loaner. So what should I do to push the issue with them for a rental? I need a car and I am sure they are going to take their time with it.
What? Two days to get a car.They didn’t even take the time test drive the car so ya, not looking good so far boys and girls.
