In the same boat with my BECM after 65k miles. When the failure happened I still was able to drive with the engine. I drove it directly to dealer I bought it from, but dropped that plan when they said no rentals and 7 days to look at. So I drove to work 20 miles away on gas with the dash telling me I had no charge and then full charge, Went to lunch it was dead and had to have it towed from the company parking lot to a different dealer. Rented car down the street. It took 2+ weeks for them to even look at it. And I had to be the one calling them. That is well outside all my GM,Ford, Honda service experience, You have my property on your lot…maybe give me an update on a regular basis? 3+ weeks plus and no promise date. Anyone know where the BECM assembly comes from? I suspect the production line was not longer in place. Are they always providing new BECMs? Can they qualify a “good” BECM from a salvage. GM seems to have miscalculated support for this vehicle. Long term I was worried more about the complex transmission(s) than an electrical control device. If they had a nice big mechanical switch in the back of the Volt where you could convert to 100% gas hybrid it would have been golden for drivers and service departments alike….

I took delivery of my '17 Volt LT on 3/14/2016...so, an early 2017. The BECM called it a day in late January of this year at between 47k and 48k miles. My dealership ordered the module early February of this year. They finally got one in on 4/25. They also swapped out my leaking oil pan, and I got the car back on 4/29. All is well again...
Good to hear, I would just love it if they could tell me New BECM - 4-6 weeks.

I just got my '17 volt back after 1 month; about a week after the part came in. My Premier had 65k miles on it when it "blinked". Everything seems normal, range about 45 miles.
