Finally happened...2017 dead

Hi all, 2017 Volt here, almost 109k on the ol' ticker. Got to work yesterday with 22 miles on the GOM. Got in the car to drive home and it's at 1 with the CEL on. A few times restarting it, the number climbed from 1 to 22 then I got it started and drove straight to get a new 12v battery, thinking that was the issue. I had the original 12v battery and it said it needed to be charged (according to the guy at batteries plus). Got it changed, drove home and charged it overnight. Got in this morning and had the CEL and has the same faults as last night (see image). I will be getting the car towed to the Chevy dealer to get diagnosed with, probably a BECM. Any advice for me?

I absolutely loved my 2018 Volt, but the BECM and EGR problems were the 100% reason I traded it for a 2022 Bolt EUV. Those problems may or may not have eventually occurred on my Volt, but I'm not disappointed I made the switch.
I would love to switch to a Bolt but between the brutal winters in Wisconsin and slow charging time, I don't think that's the best choice for me at the moment.

I called GM on Wednesday and told them my whole story. Magically, my dealer called on Thursday saying the part has been shipped out and I should have my car back next week sometime! Now, if only GM will cover it with 9,000 miles over, I would be golden!
