My 2007 Dodge Charger R/T Daytona has 2 batteries. 1 in trunk and 1 in engine compartment. Never found out why there are 2 but selling for camaro so I guess it really doesn't matter to me anymore. Anyone know if they are changing things on production line to nip this thing in the butt?

Solstice any Sky have their battery up front on the right side...just behind the front wheel well.
the HHR and Cobalt have the battery in the back though so in you terms they must be sports cars....

All Corvettes from 1968 to 1982 had them in the back..

Problem was with the heat shrink covering on the cable from what I understand. Amazing what happens when the wiring is next to the exhaust manifold.

So, does this mean from now on, all Camaro's produced after the recall will not have this problem, or will all Camaro's have to have this done? If you don't mind, someone who knows this, just leave a message in my inbox, because i'll forget to check this page.

Cable

Yup, minor deal. As an owner of several cars that were first year NEW models, it all works out. Would go anywhere right now in my 05 C6...great car.

Worked at dealerships(mechanic) most of my life, this stuff is same old-same old......for Honda, Nissan...all of them.

Dang a recall already. Not good for the camaros. Even though it's minor, still that's not the point it's the fact that there is a problem so soon.
Well, at least its nothing major.

Glad I got my 2010 Mustang in this case. I read somewhere that GM had put a fraction of the cost into the 2010 Camaros compared to what other auto makers had invested. I just thought this was the case because GM had a TON of cars and knew what they were doing.. Any SS's in Indy? PM me if you are!

I just got back from my dealer and saw the recall bulletin and the fix instructions. The wiring problem was not due to being next to the exhaust manifold. It is the battery wire on the starter being too close to the starter and the starter bracket that could be a problem on some V8 engines.

The fix is to put special tape in certain areas on the battery wire and make sure it is routed away from any sharp edges. There is a sharp edge on the starter bracket that gets rounded off in the fix. Dealers are instructed not to deliver car until fix is done if it is on the recall list. If it happened once (which it has) it could happen again.

Good call on GM's part to fix with a recall rather than have everyone wait and let them do it before shipping our cars. Mine was built on 4-17 and has been at 4B00 ever since. It is on the recall list and it now shows 4300 (Intermediate Delivery) as of 5-5. I would rather have the dealer fix it than wait any longer than I have to.

Not all V8 cars seem to be on the recall list, only a few.

Got the call about an hour ago... GM is being very proactive about it. Stated it could take up to 1 hour and the parts if any would be in 24 to 48 hours so, I would be able to enjoy my car this weekend. . They where very adamant about not driving the car and they would flat bed it to the dealership. NOT MY CAMARO... Told them I would not drive it except when my dealer called ready for the repair. Small town, I only live 30 seconds away… Sounds like all that needs to be done is reroute the cable and they threw in a 100 gift certificate towards any future services. Very cool.

I thought I read somewhere that GM is giving free oil changes for your trouble.
