After an over-the-air software upgrade, General Motors addressed a problem with non-functional modules in the 2023 Chevy Colorado with a new service update. If the problem is not fixed, it could drain the car’s battery. GM Authority has reported on previous battery drain problems with the 2023 Chevy Colorado.
This month, the 2023 Chevy Colorado received a new service update, identified by service update number N232425820. The upgrade is limited to cars made in 2023 model years.
A number of parts for the 2023 Chevy Colorado may become inoperable due to the most recent over-the-air software upgrade. Modules may fail to connect with car systems correctly or become stuck in boot mode. This problem can cause the battery to run low and prevent the car from starting.
GM is directing dealers to reprogram the module or modules that are stuck in boot mode or aren’t communicating in order to resolve this issue. These could be the gearbox control module, body control module, video processing module and front view camera. Depending on the specifications of the car, different labour times are needed to reprogram various components.
Units of the 2023 Chevy Colorado have experienced battery drain problems previously. The battery drain issue was first covered by GM Authority in July of last year and again in September. In December, GM issued a patch to address the problem.
Recall that the brand’s newest third generation will debut in the 2023 Chevy Colorado. The pickup has three engine options available: the Turbo 2.7L I4 L2R gasoline engine, the Turbo Plus 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine (deleted for the 2024 model year), and the Turbo High Output 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine (later renamed as TurboMax for the 2024 model year). The truck is outfitted with the GM Global B electronic architecture.
The foundation is provided by the 31XX-2 platform, and production is handled at the GM Wentzville facility in Missouri.
