GM said today that it will be updating the software on about 4,000 units of the 2013 model Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrids to fix an issue that can cause the electric motor to shut down while in motion. The issue only affects 2013 model year Volts – when owners use the delayed charging function.

“We have received a few reports from owners that their electric motor has temporarily stopped working, resulting from a software anomaly when their vehicle is in the delayed time and rate charge mode,” said GM spokeswoman Michelle Malcho said.

Malcho said that when the motor shuts down, the steering and brakes still work – allowing the driver to come to a safe stop. After two to five minutes the vehicle starts functioning properly again.
