  1. Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    Looking for some guidance on resetting my range estimate. My range has reduced to 80km instead of 100km. This is a recent change without any real driving or temp changes. Got this document from the dealer which says I can reset the range but can't find the setting. It says:" GM encourages use of...
  2. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen2 Volt
    Hi- Our 2018 40K miles Volt has died TWICE on highway in past week, and the dealer is driving me mad. Both times it followed the same pattern: when the battery miles ran out and the car tried to switch to the ICE, it began shaking and then died. The first time, my husband got the unable to...
  3. CANADA
    So I just got a used Volt that had 44000km(27340mi) on it. I was under the impression that it had a range of 85km(53mi) when fully charged. But when I woke up this morning to my fully charged vehicle it only showed a range of 68km(42mi). Is this normal? I feel like this is a bigger...
  4. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Is it possible to operate the Volt without the traction pack installed? I’m considering an EV conversion for my other vehicle and want to use the batteries from my 2014 Volt. But I’d still like to drive the Volt’s ICE while the EV conversion is in works
  5. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    This post is the start of the next chapter of my experience with a failed battery on our 2013 Volt. As you read in this thread, my Volt went into limp mode after a couple of the cells fell out of range with the rest of the pack. As you will see on that thread, the error codes didn't immediately...
  6. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen2 Volt
    My Volt just got the software update last week from Chevy. I told them I was still receiving errors on my phone. He told me he reset the lights and ran diagnostics again that it was perfect. The day after my entire electric system failed. Check engine light on and Propulsion Power is Reduced...

    I have a brand new 12 volt battery that I purchased to attempt 1 time to start my 2011 Volt. Unfortunately, it was the main battery that was dead. This 12 volt will replace your old starter battery. Also available are multiple parts from under the rear storage compartment including the tire...
  10. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I've see people ask on the forums if their car will work gas-only AFTER the batteries die and I know the answer to that one. I know my 2012 is going to lose battery function some time in the next year or two (maybe) and if it made a difference, I would stop charging my functioning batteries and...

    Man, this sucks! Car is disabled. I hope dealership can explain this one. Under 30k miles/model year 2018.
  12. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Greetings to everyone. My Volt has been happy and well-behaved. Tomorrow we are leaving on a road trip, driving about two hours each way. I’d like to keep a decent reserve in the traction battery, “just in case.” Any reason I should NOT drive the entire time in Mountain Mode?
  13. Li-Ion Battery, Charging, Mgmt System - Chevy Volt
    I have a 2011 Volt. Started the day with a full battery of 28 miles. Went to work, parked with 22 miles. Hours later, I went to leave. The engine turned on and message saying "Propulsion Power is Reduced". The battery was now at 0. Worse yet, get home on the gas engine, but when I plug it in...
  14. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    The 8 year Voltec warranty on my 2013 Volt has about 9 months left to run. Other than the obvious (following the factory-recommended maintenance schedule) is there anything else I should be doing, testing, having checked by the Chevy dealer, now? Only 64,000 miles on the car, so I'll be...
  15. Want to Buy/Want to Trade
    Hello! There are more and more posts about Gen1 battery failures, I am in the same boat! If you aren't going to fix your Volt, I would like to buy it. I am in the Lexington, KY area so ideally I want to find something within a couple hundred miles. Message me to see if we can work something...
  16. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I plan to do a lot of camping. Problem is I still need to continue working online, and so I need to power my laptop that may pull as much as 240 watts at times. Does anybody have any recommendations as to the best way to add a 120v AC port? I think tapping into the high voltage system connected...
  17. Add Good Dealer/Bad Dealer For Service
    My 2017 volt has been leaving a residue under the car on my driveway like the photo below. I fear it is battery leakage but has anyone seen this or familiar with what this is and what causes it?

  19. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Hey all, My 2014 Volt won’t charge. A few months ago, I plugged it in and the fuse blew in the outlet, but I am sure I’ve plugged it in (to other sockets) since then with no issues. Tonight when I plugged it in with the standard portable charger, the box on the charger lit up green and is good...
  20. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Today as I was driving home, the ICE stopped running and the check engine light illuminated, I managed to coast into my driveway and attempted to restart the car, upon pressing the button all I got was the " Initializing, please wait" message for about 10 seconds then fade to black, even...
