Dec. 2016 Impala recall 26180

Regarding this recall, has anyone gotten the service done? According to the letter received, the Chevy service dept. will inspect and replace the fuse box cover and/or the #66 fuse. Currently, my cover indicates a 10 A. fuse with a 5 A. in the slot. Calls to two local Chevrolet service depts. failed to gain any information other than an RO (repair order) had to be processed and a tech. go on the clock to check out the situation. I'd like to pin down the issue before having the service performed. I'm reluctant to have dealership repairs other than recalls or TSB's.

if it's a recall, take it in and have it done. looks like it's just at case of too small of fuse for the trunk release. or replace the 5A with a 10A yourself and save the trip.

i personally like free stuff however and it should be a 5 minute fix (including time for them to find the fuse, open the hood etc lol).

Any chance you can upload a copy of the notice? Thanks.

I didn't get far googling 26180 . I could find Impala and GM recall notices, but none with that number.

It's not a recall. It's a customer satisfaction program. The issue is that the 5 amp fuse is the correct fuse and the 10 amp listed on the cover is incorrect and a new fuse block cover is installed with the correct info on it.

Thanks Bart77. I suspected that and previously placed a piece of masking tape on the underside of the cover with 5 A on it for slot #66 until I get the next free service oil change and tire rotation. Doug, the correct number for what I understood was a recall is N162026180. See how that works.

Thanks again Bart77.
