Oh no, there’s more trouble on the horizon for Chevrolet. After every single Chevy Bolt EV had to be recalled due to the batteries catching fire, there are more EV problems. The 2024 Chevy Blazer EV has a few kinks to work out.

General Motors is dropping Apple CarPlay and Android Auto due to alleged safety concerns. However, this means that it will be creating its own software for vehicles like the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV.

The pressure is on as these new electric vehicles are put to the test, and so far the entire software system including the built-in navigation and charging screens are on the fritz.

General Motors has issued a stop sale for the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV to address this problem before any more units are delivered to customers.

Global Vice President of Chevrolet, Scott Bell shared that General Motors is aware that a limited number of customers have experienced software-related quality issues with their Blazer EV. Customer satisfaction is their priority, and as such a brief pause on deliveries will be taken.

To be specific, people are having trouble with their infotainment screens and with using DC fast charging stations.

The infotainment screens will flicker, go blank, or restart. They will also drop navigation directions and connections with phones are being dropped.

While charging, the screen may go black or say the EV is done changing in about three minutes. IT may lose the ability to fully charge or charge at all.

There might not be a recall for this issue because it’s being caught before a majority of vehicles have been delivered. General Motors says the problem isn’t related to safety, the Ulitium battery-powered platform, or Google built-in.

But the problem is also unknown. GM is working on a potential fix. It plans to release a software update to fix the tech issues. The update will require you to bring your vehicle in for service. It won’t be over the air.

Owners will be contacted with further information about how to schedule their update. It’s unclear how long this process will take, but engineers are working to deliver a solution as soon as possible.
