  1. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I washed my 2016 Volt on a below-freezing day this winter, and I went home to plug in to charge, the door had icicles at that time, so I put a bit more pressure in pressing it in to open, it opened fine and I charged it overnight without thinking much about it, since this had occasionally...
  2. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen2 Volt
    Today I found a new sound that my Volt can make. I have read the manual, but did not find this listed. I unplugged my Volt and was immediately interrupted by conversation from my wife. During the conversation, I hung up the EVSE plug, then opened the driver's side door. As I opened the door, I...

It had chewed through the harness ($100) to the port door, and the door release cable ($65). They said it was recent and warranty...
  6. Electric Vehicle Batteries & Plug-In Charging
    I thought I would follow up with the Volt community about charging problems I was having at public (Chargepoint) charging stations. When I first got my 2013 volt it was charging at home and at public stations just fine. After about two weeks it stopped charging at public stations but was...
  7. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I purchased MY2012 in Sept. Over the last several months, the charge door would not release on the first attempt. After pressing the charge door button a second time, the door would always open. But in the last two weeks, the door stopped opening even after repeatedly pressing the button. I...
  8. Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
    (1) An option for delayed charging that simply allows the specification of allowed/disallowed charging times (does not involve departure time). Thus, for me, charging would begin at 12:00 midnight (off peak) and then when I get to work it would begin charging immediately without having to...
