  1. 12v Charging Logic

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I'm installing a ham radio in my 2017 Volt and purchased a low voltage disconnect box which will start a timer below 12.8 volts and either disconnect the radio after 2 mins or when voltage hits 12.4 volts, whichever comes first. Thinking into this prior to installation, I realized this system is...

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I'm very new to this forum, and I have a lot questions, so please bear with me. I had me 12v battery tested at AutoZone they couldn't give me any details other than it could use a charging. I tested it when I got home with a multimeter. It read 12.2v with the car off and 11.88 with the...

  6. Any 12V switched power in the roof of a LT???

    Gen2 Volt Accessories and Modifications
    I installed a homelink mirror last night in my '16 LT, but didn't wire it up yet. I pulled the overhead console down with my handy multimeter sitting there to look for potential places to wire tap, but then I noticed how small all of the connector pins were. No way the probes I had would work...
  7. 2016 12v Battery Changes?

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Does anyone know about what 12v battery is being used in the 2016 Volt and where they have located it? The Volt 1.0 setup makes it very difficult to jump start another car's dead battery because you need to access the Volt's battery under the trunk floor and access covers. This happened with...
