Friend has a 2012 Volt that was not charging...She took to dealership and has been repaired. Seems like this should be covered under the Voltec warranty. She called GM and they called the dealership. Dealership stated this was more of an electrical problem so she was charged.

Any help would be appreciated. Below are actual words on ticket.

Codes P1E00, POAA6, P1FFF, and B3205 checked for loss of coolant pulled battery drain plug, no coolant loss, all full , checked to find buttlin DOC#4838351 for updated calibration on HPCM and EBEC
Tech: 14 -CL
Programed HPCM-2 Programmed EBEC programmed ECM C learned codes and test drove

She was charged $245 for this. Should this be covered under the Voltec Warranty she has 78k miles? Thanks in advance.

Aren't' the HPCM-2 and EBEC computer/controllers specific to the Voltec drivetrain? If so I think this should be a warranty item. The key here is that dealerships only get paid 60-70% of the "retail" pricing when they bill GM for warranty work.
Well, that is what I was thinking as well; I am hoping one of the moderators or a Volt Tech could chime in with a definitive answer.

The hybrid powertrain control module 2(HPCM2) and the battery energy control module (BECM) both should have been programmed for this issue and both are covered under the Voltec warranty.

Tell them to look up this bulletin.

Exactly what she needed. Thank you very much.
