  1. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I had trouble with my 2012 Volt (129k miles) earlier this month and it's ongoing. The first sign of trouble is that I got a reduced propulsion power message a few miles from my house and limped home to my garage. I forgot to charge it that evening, and the next day, my car took an unusually long...
  2. Li-Ion Battery, Charging, Mgmt System - Chevy Volt
    In 2019 my family was blessed to be given a 2012 Chevy Volt from a friend. They got a new 2017. They kept the original charger for the 12. In August of last year I replaced the 12v battery. We live in Indiana where it can get pretty cold, but it has not been horrible so far. I think the coldest...

  4. 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...
  5. 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...

    Reed Lalier chevrolet in fayetteville, NC: After my 3rd trip to the dealer this winter they solved the heat issue. background: The car could not provide heat despite maxing it out on the screen. After a control module here, a coolant leak into the cylinder head there, it was latter...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. 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. Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    Just want to say hi to everyone and thank everyone who has posted here. Helped me already a lot to understand my VOLT. Which is a used 2012 I own since a month. So far one of my best cars I ever owned. But that is probably nothing new to you. Living in the NoVA area the car is great. I am...

    2012 Volt displays "file authentication" error with "audio book" feature Good: I just found the "Audio Book" feature in my 2012 Volt Bad: It doesn't work. It displays a message that includes "file authentication"... I hope I'm not the first person to actually use this feature! Of course I...
  14. 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

  17. 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...
