  2. USB music issue.

    Software & Programming/Code - Chevy Volt
    When I use my iPhone 5s through the lightning cable after about 10 mins it starts this scrambling noise. It sounds like the data is getting jumbled, almost like a bad cd. If we unplug the cable and plug it back in, it will start again within another 10 mins or so. We drove 2 and a half hours to...
  3. Using audio with iPhone 6 in my 2012 is really pushing my buttons

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Hello all, I recently bought a used 2012 (no nav) and like the car very much - except for the iPhone connection to the audio system. I have an iPhone 6 (iOS 9.02) and the bluetooth connections only enables pure phone features - no music at all. When I plug in the USB it immediately acts as an...

    Li-Ion Battery, Charging, Mgmt System - Chevy Volt
    Yesterday my 2012 Volt would not charge. 68k on it. The yellow light comes on when plugged in, but does not go to green. Then it turns off completely and there is no code or description shown in the message center. The engine light is displayed on the cluster. Today I took it to the dealer...
  6. Rear-Ended 2012 Volt, can it be repaired?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I was rear-ended by some idiot while stopped at a Yield sign. My Volt sacrificed itself to keep me from getting injured or killed, which I really appreciate. But now my insurance company is wondering whether the car should be replaced or scrapped, and I was wondering what folks here think...
  7. Is "service high voltage charging system" covered?

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Hey everyone! So I went to drive my Volt (2012, 47,000 miles) this morning around 10am and all was fine. Had it sitting in my garage for about 4 hours, went to drive it, and the message came up "Service High Voltage Charging System." I had not been expecting this so I turned the car off/on and...
  8. 2014 Volt-different charge time and range estimation from my 2012!

    Li-Ion Battery, Charging, Mgmt System - Chevy Volt
    SO, I've had my 2014 for a month now, have around 1000 miles and have figured out most of the differences from my 2012. Two things puzzle me: 1) Charge completion time actual performance. I have the car set up to start charging when it needs to to be ready to go at 6:45 AM. In my 2012, it would...
  9. Strange Instrument Cluster Issue

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Every once in a while, when I start my 2012 Volt, the instrument cluster gets stuck into a mode where it's showing the small icon, rather than the large animated icon, of whatever mode its in (electric or gas). The car seems to drive fine, but it's still concerning. I've attached a photo. I...

  12. Leasing a 2012?

    Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    Can you still lease a 2012? I was told that there are no leases available for the 2012 models which seems pretty stupid since there's so many 2012's still available where I am. Thanks, Jayson

  15. July Sales guesses

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    I have been noticing a lot more 'Hi, I'm new' threads on the board. It seems like there has been about as many as the month of March when the Volt almost sold 2300 domestic. It would appear all the deep discounting for 2012s is starting to move inventory. My analysis: This month is REALLY...
