Condition/Concern
Some customers may comment on any of the following:
^ Service Power Steering message displayed on the driver information center (DIC)
^ Service Hybrid System message displayed on the driver information center (DIC)
^ Charging System indicator lamp on
^ Loss of power steering assist
^ Loss of 12 volt battery power
These conditions may occur immediately after start up after a cold soak in cold ambient temperatures at approximately -11°C to -20°C (12°F to -4°F).

Recommendation/Instructions
Note:
This concern can only be duplicated after a cold soak in extreme cold temperatures as noted above.
Engineering is aware of this concern and working on a part resolution. Once parts become available this PI will be updated. Please DO NOT replace any power steering components as this will not correct the concern.
Customer Information
Please communicate to the customer that we apologize for this inconvenience and that General Motors is working on a solution for this concern. Once a solution is available, this PI will be updated with additional details - allowing dealership personnel to contact the customer to schedule a service appointment and repair the vehicle. In the meantime customers should avoid this ambient temperature window (i.e. park in the garage, etc.) whenever possible.
