  1. 2016 Recall N192273600 for HVAC?

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Gen2 Volt
    I am looking for some expert help and opinion here. I had a repair done "HVAC Compressor to Condenser Hose Leaks . Code P0534 Low Pressure". The dealer has told me that this is not part of the recall. I believe they were looking at the wrong part of the bill because I had the HVAC Valve...
  2. Air Conditioning Not Working

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hey everyone, I drive a 2013 Gen1 Chevy Volt and have been having some problems with my A/C. Recently I was not getting any cold air from my eco or comfort settings. The fan still blew air, the heater still blew hot air, and the heated seats still worked. The check engine light came on the other...
  3. Poor A/C Performance Weak Airflow Normal?

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    My 2012 Volt (113k mi) is at the dealer for an unrelated check engine repair (another thread...) but I am taking the opportunity to have them check the HVAC system for a problem with very weak airflow. Maybe I am mis-remembering but I just don't recall the AC on Auto being this anemic (on...
  4. Any possible Hack to disable A/C operation in Heating mode Eco & Max

    Mechanical Systems - Chevy Volt
    Hi All, In Australia where winters are fairly dry and most areas we DO NOT suffer from the the need to remove cabin condensation / fog, is there any way to override electronically, electrically or mechanically to stop A/C operation while heating. It is absolutely crazy that in Eco / Max...
  5. NEED INPUT ASAP re: presumed failing A/C compressor

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hey guys, so my car has been at the dealer for the phantom remote start issue, which they claim is now fixed, but I also asked them to replace the A/C compressor because, well frankly, it sounds like it's grinding itself to death whenever it runs when its hot outside. Granted, it is cold outside...
  6. Climate control would not come on

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Had my Volt for about a week. Drove to store while in ECO mode. When I started it up and drove home, the climate control was unresponsive. None of the selections worked, couldn't turn anything on. No fan, no a/c, no air flow at all. After I pulled into the garage, I turned the car off and got a...
  7. a/c

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    I love my 2013 Volt. I've had it one year and have a lifetime average of 226 mpg! However, I experience intermittent problems with the a/c blowing hot air for 5 minutes or so after it has been cold for some time. It has occurred both on battery and gas. I live in Arizona and the last thing I...
  8. Hot air when ICE kicks in while running the A/C

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Here's what happens... driving along with the A/C on Economy, temp set to 77, cabin is at temp so its pretty much steady state. Then either because I switch on MM or because the battery is depleted the ICE kicks on. Now I get hot air coming from the vents. I can compensate by adjusting the...
  9. No "OFF" switch for heating/AC ??

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I've searched the owner's manual, but it seems that there is no way to turn off the interior heat/AC system, or at least there is no simple "off" switch that does this. The manual says that you use the least energy in the "Fan Only" mode. Wouldn't it make sense if there was some way to shut off...
  10. Musky Smell Comming From A/C

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Is anyone getting a musky smell comming from their A/C unit. It started a few days ago. I have advised my chevy volt advisor and awaiting his reply. I was just wondering if anyone else is having the same issues .. We have 2 volts and it is the same on both of them. Running the car does not make...
