2022 GMC Hummer EV Recalled For Improper Urethane Battery Pack Sealing23
GM has issued a product safety recall for the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup. The recall was issued for a problem with the Hummer EV’s battery pack, which may be improperly sealed, potentially leading to water entering the battery pack.
If water does end up entering the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup battery pack, it may result in a battery pack malfunction, leading to one or more malfunction indicator lamps to illuminate, as well as the display of a warning message in the Driver Information Center (DIC).
At present, GM is aware of three confirmed reports of water entering improperly sealed battery packs in the GMC Hummer EV. In two of these cases, the vehicles affected would not start, while in the third case, the vehicle lost propulsion while driving. The loss of propulsion while driving may increase the risk of a crash.
GM is now working on a remedy for this condition. The fix is not yet available, but when it is, GM will issue a recall bulletin and dealers will begin repairs on affected vehicles. GM will cover the inspection and repair costs associated with this recall at no cost to the customer.
Any customer that wants to check if their vehicle is affected by this recall can do so at the GM Owner Center website by visiting my.gm.com/recalls and entering their Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). Customers can also do the same by visiting the NHTSA’s website at vinrcl.safercar.gov/vin/.
To note, the GM recall number associated with this issue is N222380030. There’s currently a stop-sale order on affected vehicles. Customers who were scheduled to pick up their vehicle have been contacted by dealers that the delivery is delayed until the fix is performed.
Should this recall involve special instructions, they will be included in a forthcoming notification letter sent to customers. Additionally, GM will offer courtesy transportation for customers who are affected by this recall and are within the warranty coverage period for the warranty which is associated with the recall.
In related news, GM recently issued a customer satisfaction program for the GMC Hummer EV in regard to a corroding high-voltage connector, which could occur if water leaks into the vehicle’s battery pack.

Well, that didn’t take long, did it? Good grief, this company is one recall after the other.
You may want to at other makers they all have recalls constantly. Just all aren’t in the news.
Every car manufacturer has recalls. I’m a tech at a car rental company and we are currently doing a lot more recalls on Ford and Stellantis (Chrysler) vehicles than GM.
You may recall the story here about GM dropping college degree requirements for some of its jobs. I cautioned at that time about “what could go wrong” when trying to introduce new technologies at a rapid pace while using anything less than the best available talent. Did I tell you so?
To add, some of the jobs mentioned in those articles were engineering jobs.
As a civil engineer myself, it is simply a bag over the head, punch in the face. If you don’t have the education and credentials, you shouldn’t be anywhere near a vehicle design team. I can’t believe that GM would permit people to be “engineers” within their company, when some of these individuals are barely qualified to use a mop wringer.
Lowering standards brings nothing positive to a corporation.
Hogwash ! History of those proven capable of not only “designing” but developing and conceptualizing vehicles proves you flat wrong. “Education” does not qualify a person. Those gifted with god-given ability, talent and the drive necessary to be successful at any endeavor will succeed.
I tell you what Bill, I will design a bridge to span the Ohio River. Then we’ll allow a person to design a bridge spanning the same area that simply “loves to draw” . You can be the first person to take the maiden drive across the other guy’s bridge. Best of luck.
What a whopping, usual, leftoid deflection attempt! Trying, unsuccessfully, to segue from the subject of building and designing vehicles and vehicle systems to Bridge Building over major Rivers. Yep, we know who you voted for, it was FJB !
You decided that I am a hardcore Liberal from my post? You need help my friend. Again, best of luck to you.
going to college absolutely DOES NOT define someone’s credibility.
Here’s an uncomfortable truth…..juries in product liability lawsuits are influenced heavily by the lack of a diploma for someone responsible for engineering.
Actually, it depends on the ability of the defendant’s Attorney to provide substantial, concrete evidence of the experience of the designer and prior success of his/her or the Company’s designs. Also, greatly depends on the research as to the members of the jury and whether or not they have open or closed minds and are dumb enough to rely on education to decide on any issue. Product liability trials are such a broad subject and so variable it is wholly irrelevant to try and quote as a rebuttal but nice try. A piss poor design knowingly sold and continued to be sold by any entity, no matter what the education background of the designer is, is the key…..NOT “education” !
This just hot off the press after it was revealed a leaky GMC Terrain taillight can cause dead battery and engine start issues. I’m seeing a theme here.
Jeez, I wonder if GM knows they have to pay attention to details. I am just glad they caught the issue before anything happened. These kinds of things are confidence sapping for the reborn Hummer.
Here we go! Better park them outside away from the house!
Far, far away given the well-proven, extreme difficulty in extinguishing Lithium Ion fires !
On that note, a local fire department recently had to excavate a hole, put the “electric” vehicle in and bury it, battery side up – to stop it from re-igniting, post crash. I will NEVER own an electric vehicle.
Not questioning that it happened, but I’d love to have a link to local news (to share on the topic)
Just the very tiny tip of the iceberg… – a battery recall. 😉
The EV evolution is still very much in its infancy. It will take several more years, perhaps a decade or two, before EV batteries and their charging/computer controls/cooling systems/et al will be standardized. Remember Beta tapes? GM, sorry lower case gm, is now only in its second generation of EV’s. There is still much to learn about EV’s. I’m in my twilight years but I’m definitely interested in seeing where this technology goes and am very interested in them. But for me, I’ll wait another 5-10 years before I seriously consider an EV, if I’m still on this side of the ground. God bless the early adopters.
We have owned two Honda SUVs, accumulated over 160,000 miles, and had 1 recall to replace a Takata air bag. Neither ever visited a dealership for a needed repair. Detroit has a steep hill to climb to even get close.
Our 2006 GMC ranch truck has been a much better truck than recent GM models currently owned by people we know. Seems GM has regressed.
The GMC Terrain tail light fiasco is a bad sign.
GMC: We are Unprofessional Grade.
