Yes many have experienced this and no, don't worry. The special purpose fuses in question may not actually have blown but are known to send an error code and Volt cannot charge the traction battery or the 12 V battery until the fuse is replaced. Even after replacing the fuses the Volt may generate additional error codes requiring draining the battery coolant, dropping the traction battery, and inspecting/replacing the battery charging module. That part will almost certainly have to be ordered so it might be a few days before your Volt can be repaired. I recall I dropped my Volt off at the dealer on a Monday and received my Volt back on Thursday before noon. I received a 2016 or 2017 Volt LT as a loaner while my Volt was being repaired, the problem has not recurred.Okay guys, earlier this week I the above message along with an orange engine and red battery light. I took the 2017 Volt to the dealer yesterday for the required service.
The service manager called today saying that they will have to replace three high voltage fuses which were ordered and will be in Monday, 6/26. He said that the complete high voltage system will have to be shut down for instillation so it will take some time for the repair. He also said a service bulletin was issued by Chevrolet.
I searched for the bulletin, but found nothing. My question is has anyone heard of this condition and service bulletin, and should I be worried?
