GM Issues GMC Hummer EV Satisfaction Program For Corroding High Voltage Connector8
GM has begun a Customer Satisfaction Program for certain GMC Hummer EV models to address an issue related to the pickup truck’s high-voltage connector for the battery pack.
The problem: in affected vehicles, the high-voltage connector may corrode and allow water to leak into the vehicle’s high-voltage battery pack. If this condition occurs, a malfunction indicator light (MIL) will appear on the vehicle’s driver information to display to alert the operator of the issue.
The hazards: GM did not say what potential problems this condition could lead to, however it seems likely this problem could result in further damage to the high-voltage connector and/or battery pack if not properly addressed.
The fix: GM will instruct service technicians to apply additional AC Delco RTV Engine Sealant to the high-voltage connector, which should help to prevent corrosion and prevent water from leaking into the connector/battery.
Affected components: high voltage connector, lithium-ion battery pack.

Put some flex seal on it
Let the EV fires continue for the fools that buy them.
Wonder where this connector is located? Inside or exposed to weather(rain)?
There are multiple connector headers to seal. They are under the vehicle at the front and back of the battery pack.
Put sme grease on the connectors problem solved!.
Water and electricity, what could go wrong………….
Don’t worry by the time GM gets these new Ultium batteries right they will drop the entire program and move on to the next “big thing” and abandon all the sucketrs that bought into it rinse and repeat.
