Wireless Charging Upgraded Kit

It looks like GM has a upgrade kit out for some 2016-2018 cars to have your wireless charger work with many other cell phones. I could not find the details of the bulletin but note # 7 as the bottom of the document says "GM Service Bulletin #18‐NA‐153 is available for certain 2015‐2018 model year customers that want to upgrade their wireless charger to have the latest compatibility".

Does anyone have access to this service bulletin and could post the details to see if it applies to the Impala?

The document i am talking about is located at the below website.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Yes it is available for 2016 - 2018 Impalas.
The kit is a customer pay install and is not covered under warranty and is for the most part a plug and play operation. Please note this just replaces the charging module and if your phone doesn't fit the charging pad now, it won't fit after the upgrade.

The MSRP of the retrofit kit is $99 USD. Labor time to install is up to your dealer and may vary, but GM recommends basing the time on warranty replacement time. So expect labor to be up to one hour.

Do you have a part number for the kit or a copy of the bulletin or installation directions? I would look into getting it for my car if I could install it easy myself and get the kit on line for a little cheaper.

The kit part number is 84526978.

This kit will not need any modifications in the Impala. To replace
1. Open the front consol compartment door (ahead of the shift lever)
2. Remove the compartment liner (just pulls out)
3. Remove the 4 bolts holding the module in place.
4. Remove the module from the console, unplug it
5. Plug in the new jumper harness and new module in the kit.
6. Install is reverse of removal.
7. Start vehicle and enjoy wireless charging!

Just what I wanted to hear, thank you Bart77 for the information.

I have a Galaxy S6 now and works great with the wireless charging in my car but I was going to upgrade to a Galaxy S7 but the GM charging list shows the S7 will only charge in my 2016 LTZ with the upgraded charger.

I am sure I can get the part cheaper on line and it should only take a few minutes to install.

I see no advantage from the old chart to the new if one has a Samsung.
Samsung s7 and others are still unusable with old or new charger. IF I read it right.

The way I read the chart is the Samsung Galaxy S7 (and S6/S7 Active and the S8/S9 Plus) will not work in my 2016 Impala now but WILL work if I upgrade to the Gen 2 wireless charging.

Note # 7 in the chart listed shows you can upgrade your 2016-2018 to work like a 2019 vehicle. As the S7 (and others listed) will work in a 2019 now, once you install the upgrade the S7 will work in your 2016-2018.

At least that is how I read the chart, maybe other can chime in with a opinion.

This is one of the features I wish my car came with, I have a 17 LT without the wireless charging, Does anyone know if the plug is there for me to just simply plug the unit into?

This is what I think of when I read the thread title. Realize I am probably the only one here that thinks that though.

I have a Samsung Note 8 and a 2016 Impala 2LTZ ME. I had to use a razorblade to modify the mat, but the factory 2016 charger charges my Note 8 just fine. It also worked with my S7 Edge and my Note7 before that. I have never had to upgrade anything.
