Thanks hadn't heard of this. Anyone else with more info? They just reprogrammed the hybrid control module because of the last recall.

Is this for just 2016's, 2017's both or just a small VIN range?

I was told there's over 31,000 2016-17 Volts involved, so maybe the car involvement isn't updated yet.

Thanks for sharing this info. I'll be on the lookout for a notice to come to my inbox.

If you dont mind me asking, what mishap did you have with an older OBDII reader? Did it throw some codes at you that weren't valid. I dont use one but am curious of the downside.

not a problem, I plugged in an older OBDII Bluetooth reader and it wiped part of the ECM NV ram. it took out the stored settings for oil life and the Learned crankshaft position sensor. I have a newer wifi version that does not give me the problem.

Thanks for the heads-up, audguy! So far, no recalls for my MY17 Volt.

A couple of weeks ago my check engine light came on and stayed on. I took it in to Rydell and they reprogrammed the power inverter module while I waited - "New software per PIP5410C reprogrammed PIM to latest calibrations". Seems to have solved the problem.

Nothing yet on my 2017 built 06/16. I may call my dealer, they had info on the last recall that the web sites didn't have.

Yup, got a call from my dealer yesterday for this, but doesn't show up in the MyChev app.

I'd be interested in knowing if you actively tried clearing a code?

I ask because I have a wired OBDII and am wondering if it's at least safe to just scans with these older units?

I didn't even bother with my old OBD2 reader. For $12 I dedicated one of these to our 2017 Volt:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B014MTAYK0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It reads and clears codes fine using Torque Pro. It also has a power-off button, to avoid parasitic drain on the battery. So I just leave it plugged in and powered off, unless the car is in for service.
Nice but doesn't appear to support iOS, or ship to Canada, I might have to do some shopping.
I'm thinking using older units to just scan should be safe. There is no reason it should attempt any "writes".
Also IIRC the CAN bus was on different pins than the older serial protocol types.
