During the extended downtime, GM will "continue to work with our supplier to accelerate production of new battery modules and prioritize recall repairs," spokesman Dan Flores said in a statement. The plant has been down since Aug. 23.

GM began sending replacement modules to certain Chevy dealers this month, according to a customer memo obtained by Automotive News.

The battery module repairs will take about two days to complete, the memo said.

The recall is expected to cost as much as $2 billion, GM said. But battery supplier LG Electronics Inc. will shoulder the vast majority of the cost and expenses, the companies said Monday.
