  2. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 1 Volt
    From my research it seems like the symptoms are very similar and could be confused for one another, and I wasn't able to find a clear difference online. What would be some major things to differentiate between the two? My issues if you'd like to read more: 2015, 92000 miles My symptoms: -Car...
  3. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    I Have a 2012 Volt with approximately 130K miles. As can be expected in the hotter summer months, my "full charge" mileage has been reduced, but now that the weather has cooled some, especially at night when the car is charging, I've not seen the same mileage that I was getting this past spring...
  4. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 1 Volt
    Hi folks, I haven't posted here in quite a while -- because my Volt's been behaving nicely for a long time. But not now. A few days ago, just as I was about to leave with it on a long driving trip, it sprung the "Service High Voltage System" message on me. So I took Old Faithful, our...
  5. Use, Care & Maintenance - Gen 1 Chevy Volt
    Hi! I have a 2013 volt that is leaking coolant. There’s damage to a metal pipe underneath the body. I think it might be the coolant inlet hose? Coolant to the battery? They are metal. The dealer says this “ ENGINE COOLING COOLANT PIPES ARE DAMAGED AND RUBBING AGAINST THE OIL PAN AND COOLANT IS...
  6. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 2 Volt
    I keep having issues with my car dying if it's left for more than a couple days. The battery has been replaced, and the issue remains. I've now taken it to two different mechanics that say there's nothing wrong with the car, and no matter how much I tell them this is constantly an issue they...
  7. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 1 Volt
    In just the last several weeks, my 2015 Volt has started giving the momentary [c. 1-2 seconds, then disappears] message of "BATTERY TOO COLD, PLUG IN TO WARM". This occurs while driving, with the AC running. I am in Minnesota and the temps have been in the mid 80's F, so I'm going to guess it...
  8. Use, Care & Maintenance - Gen 2 Chevy Volt
    I have a 2016 Volt with 82K miles. Although the car drives great, I have noticed small charging nuances and was wondering if these are initial signs that the battery will need to be replaced soon, or maybe this is not the issue. I would appreciate an input, this gal is trying to learn about...
  9. Use, Care & Maintenance - Gen 1 Chevy Volt
    Hi guys, I'm here in Australia and looking at a 2013 Volt for sale, only 250 cars were sold in Australia, but lots in USA. My main concern before purchasing is the cost of replacing a battery on a 10 year old car. What is the cost of replacing in USA ( or Australia if any knowledge). When can...
  10. Use, Care & Maintenance - Gen 1 Chevy Volt
    Hi everyone, I am the brand new owner of a used 2011 Volt. I have only been able to charge it to 23 miles. I took it to the dealer to have them check it out. They say there is nothing wrong with it, it is just getting old. I would like more range of course, but don't want the battery to die on...
  11. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 2 Volt
    Hi all. For the last 4 years, our 2017 Volt has consistently had a range of 59 miles after a full charge overnight at home. Suddenly, 3 charges ago, the range was only 49 miles. My first thought was that the charge limit had dropped from 12 amps to 8 amps, but that wasn't the case. Now there...
  12. Use, Care & Maintenance - Gen 1 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...
  13. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 2 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...
  14. 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...
  15. Generation 1 Chevy 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
  16. Generation 1 Chevy 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...
  17. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 2 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...
  18. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 1 Volt
    I was driving from Sarasota to Tampa airport. The car gave me a msg "propulsion reduced". The engine light was on. The Closest Chev dealer was about 30 miles away. Airport same distance so to avoid missing my plane I went to the airport and plugged the car in (upon the advice of Chevy Service at...

  20. Generation 1 Chevy 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...
