This post is a table summarizing the battery replacement recall remedy scheduling and completion. It is derived from posts in Post when you are Notified to have your Battery Replaced and other public postings. It was formerly post #53 of that thread.

Please post your updates in the thread linked above.

Tip: to find out if your car is eligible to schedule the remedy now, do one of the following:
If you see "incomplete" or "open", your car has an open recall that it is eligible to receive the remedy for. If you see "incomplete, remedy not yet available", your car has an open recall but cannot receive the remedy yet.

Quick summary so far of reported replacements or eligibility for replacement:
  • Specials = special cases (e.g. waiting at dealer with "bad battery codes", previously replaced battery in late 2018).
  • All = presumed all except for (possible) special cases for still waiting row.
  • Most, Many, Some, Few = as described, includes special cases other than still waiting row.
  • NR = none reported, presumed none except for (possible) special cases.
  • NDS = new dealer stock
  • KR, US = original battery origin for 2019 model year cars.

Patterns observed so far:
  1. Mostly 2019 cars with earlier build dates (including October 2018 that had a relatively large number of fires) have become remedy-eligible so far. However, some 2019 cars with earlier build dates (including October 2018) are still waiting.
  2. Some non-2019 cars have been reported of interest:
    1. Three 2017 cars have been reported as becoming remedy-eligible.
      1. Two of these have been at dealers since August awaiting battery modules.
    2. One 2018 car has been reported as becoming remedy-eligible -- not much detail regarding that car.
    3. One 2018 car that has been at a dealer since August with P0AA1 and P0BBD codes (from the first fire recall software) was still waiting as of October 19, 2021.
  3. Customers found out about remedy-eligibility in different ways:
    1. Checked myChevrolet mobile app or web site.
    2. Call from GM.
    3. Call from dealer.
  4. Remedy-eligibility appears to be updated frequently or daily, possibly as batteries are produced each day.

Mine still shows Incomplete "Remedy. Not Yet Available". I had it in the dealer several times for odd range reports (the guessometer was showing about 70-100 miles less than normal range during optimal temps). I was showing approx 47 kWH being added back from 'empty', but almost never anything in the 50's.

Also did both 'update' recalls. Currently set for hill top reserve. Regularly charge to 95%. Run it down to 30-70 miles. If I don't drive/discharge it this way, the range estimate gets all out of wack. Had a reset done and ran it dead 3 times per the dealer request (as low as I dared to drive it where there was no range estimate shown). eMPG is back in the 110-120 range.
Have you tried reading battery capacity estimate and cell group voltages through OBD-II as described at ?

Note that one of the cars that caught fire did so after previous customer complaints about reduced capacity / range.

So far, looks like still mostly 2019 cars, with customers finding out in various ways (checking myChevrolet or web site, call from GM, postal mail from GM, call from dealer).

However, there have been cases where a dealer incorrectly told a customer that their car was now eligible, only to back out because the car was not eligible and they could not get a battery. If a dealer calls, it is best to verify eligibility on myChevrolet or web site to be sure, especially if it looks like your car may be coming up earlier than expected (e.g. a dealer tells you that your 2022 car is eligible while most replacements are still happening to 2019 with Korea-made batteries).

There have also been cases where customers have found local dealers unable or unwilling to do the remedy for eligible cars, or incorrectly imposing additional requirements like having to bring the car in first for an inspection before they will order a battery. If that occurs, it may be necessary to call a GM EV concierge to get some GM assistance here.

Understand how to use the web sites, but it bugs me that without OnStar I can't check for recalls in the MyChevrolet app. I'm not going to pay OnStar for service just to get that. 2017 so all the free service offers (if there ever were any) are done.
2017 came with free OnStar Basic (or something like that) for 5 years. No 2017 has been in a customer's hands for more than 5 years, so you should still have the free OnStar Basic if you have a 2017 car.

However, there is some sort of bug somewhere which is causing the myChevrolet app to redirect to the web page where you need to put in the VIN, instead of directly showing your car's recall status. This has been occurring for the last few days (sometimes, it appears fixed and shows the recall status directly, but then later redirects to the web page).

Another update / observation as of November 4, 2021: it looks like new notifications of remedy eligibility have stopped or significantly slowed since late October, based on the reports in these forums. There have been no reports on these forums of new remedy eligibility checked on myChevrolet or the web site since October 22, 2021, although some postal notices were reported through October 26, 2021.

I have not been adding more Facebook reports, but it seems like the new notifications of remedy eligibility have stopped or significantly slowed since then as well.

Given that remedy work is still filling dealer service schedules, perhaps the bottleneck is, for now, at the dealers or moving the new batteries to the dealers. Perhaps that is why GM is doing a two week run of new Bolt EV and EUV production, but then shutting down production for another three weeks after that (perhaps to supply batteries for the next round of cars moved to the remedy eligible list).

Have you read the procedure? As far as "major" auto work goes, it is about a 3 out of 10 on the complicated scale. Any halfway decent tech (and I assume EV certified techs are going to be better as a whole than the average tech) should be able to handle this without incident.
Yes, the replacement procedure is conceptually quite simple. The main complexity is due to the fact that the battery weighs somewhere around 1,000 pounds and has high voltage, so careful handling with equipment like lift table and forklift or engine hoist is necessary, unlike for something much smaller like a 12V lead-acid battery.

I'm talking about the meta-procedure around how people get notified, which dealers can do the work, how batteries get ordered and shipped, how appointments for the work get scheduled and fulfilled, etc. That seems to be where a lot of the confusion lies right now in these early days.
Seems like notification is basically this:
  1. Car is moved to the remedy-eligible list.
  2. Postal mail is sent to customer, arriving a few days later.
However, the variation is that customers may find out earlier in Check for Recall in myChevrolet, or by putting the VIN in the web site. In addition, some have reported getting phone calls from GM informing them that their car is now remedy-eligible. There are also some dealers who have taken to calling customers, but some have been reported to have called customers in error before their cars became remedy-eligible.

On ordering and shipping, it seems like some dealers may not have carefully read the ordering instructions for getting the recall replacement batteries.

Some other observations:
  • Looks like most, but not all, of the 2019 with Korea-made batteries reported on these forums were moved to remedy-eligible in October.
  • It looks like there was a hiatus in moving cars to remedy-eligible since October 22, but I just saw two reports of new remedy-eligibility today on Facebook (not adding more Facebook reports to the table). So maybe the moving of cars to remedy-eligible is starting back up, if there was a hiatus.
  • (Revision) It looks like a forum member just reported their car being moved to remedy-eligibility today.

One Big Smoldering Question:

What is happening to the 99.9% of these battery packs which are truly fine.

1. Are the batteries being ground up and poured into waste sites? Recycled?
2. Are the battery packs being repurposed into something else?
3. Are the batteries being resold?

As much as I want a new battery pack and the longer range, the impact of throwing away this much functional power storage and delivery is concerning, no matter the benefit to me as an owner.
If any can be determined "safe" (including with restrictions that still allow for reasonable use), then they could at least theoretically be used for other purposes like grid storage. Any that cannot be determined "safe" (including with restrictions that still allow for reasonable reuse) will likely be recycled to mine the materials from them.

The real problem is that LG and GM have not yet found a non-destructive way of determining which packs or modules are "safe" (or "safe" within the usage parameters of a car). If they did have such a method, they could avoid replacing the ones found to be "safe".

No. None of that is required. If you show up with the battery below 90% SoC, and last charge at least 24 hours previous, the battery can be pulled immediately. GM claims they can tell both of these requirements with their laptop plugged into the OBD II port.
The revised service bulletin just say to ask the customer when the last charge was, since apparently the check through OBD-II / GDS2 sometimes gave false time since last charge.

Status: "Not yet"

Model year: 2019
Build date 06/2019
Battery origin: KR (battery P/N 688380169)
You may want to check frequently -- many 2019 cars with Korea-made batteries have been moved to the remedy-eligible category, so it is likely your car will be one of the earlier remaining ones.

Summary so far:
  • Still looks like mostly 2019 cars getting moved to remedy-eligible.
  • Looks like initial group moved to remedy-eligible October 8-22, 2021. Then a smaller group moved to remedy-eligible November 5-6, 2021.
  • Speed of getting work done is quite variable, depending on dealer willingness and knowledge of the remedy procedure.
  • Other year cars appear to be still those stuck at dealers waiting for module replacements due to "bad battery" codes and such (e.g. P0BBD).
  • However, Facebook A.H. recently had a replacement in a 2018 car with 185k miles and mostly charging to 100% and frequent deep discharges. No mention of being stuck at the dealer waiting for a module replacement. (I am not adding most Facebook reports now, but I added this one because it is interesting.)

It is a message dated November 8, 2021 from GM to dealers that "Additional 2017 - 2019 model year Chevrolet Bolt EV vehicles have been moved to ‘Open’ status in IVH and are now eligible for a battery module replacement." So it does look like the observed reports from November 5-6, 2021 match up with a batch of cars becoming remedy-eligible at that time.

That's Interesting. According to @Sean Graham (Telek), there were ~14k model year 2019 Bolts with batteries made in Korea. Battery replacements began about 1 month ago (10/14 according to the table in the first post of this thread), so that might indicate a battery production rate. If so, it implies that 140,000 batteries might be produced in as few as 10 months.
Yes, that could be the case (although 10/14 was the first known battery replacement on these forums, so the batteries must have started production before that and had time to get shipped). However, given that a significant number of customers who have been notified of remedy eligibility are still trying to get repairs at dealers, it could be that dealer issues are now the bottleneck. Perhaps GM realizes that and decided to have the two week run of new production to absorb batteries that would otherwise just be backlogged on dealer issues.

So far, still looks like mostly 2019 cars have become remedy eligible. The exceptions:
  • Cars that were already at the dealer waiting for battery modules (e.g. P0BBD codes and the like).
  • Cars that previously received replacement batteries in late 2018 (when the highest risk batteries were being made to put in 2019 cars).
  • A few 2018 cars, apparently with the highest risk use patterns (e.g. 185k miles with daily charging to 100%).

However, there are still some 2019 cars with Korea-made batteries that have not been moved to remedy eligibility.

Some on these forums who have reported remedy eligibility are still having trouble with local dealer unwillingness or inability to do the repair.

I can confirm at least one MY 2017 VIN has become remedy eligible as well. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you about recent charging history.
So far, the 2017 cars that I have seen reported as remedy eligible have been:
  • Cars that were already stuck at dealers for module replacements for other reasons (e.g. P0BBD triggered by the May software).
  • One car that had its battery replaced in late 2018 (when the highest risk batteries were made) for other defects.

So far, it looks like there is a lull in cars being moved to the remedy eligible category since early-to-mid November.

It still looks like mostly 2019 cars (with Korea-made batteries when specified), but a few 2017 and 2018 cars (not stuck at dealer waiting for batteries already or with previously replaced batteries during the high-risk period) have been moved to the remedy eligible category. However, there are still some 2019 cars with Korea-made batteries that have not yet been moved to the remedy eligible category.
