  1. 2016 Charge door sensor broken and warning

    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. New Warning Sound - 3 Beeps

    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...
  3. Budget Illuminated Charge Port?

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    As I certainly do not wish to spend CAN$175 on the illuminated charge port option for my 2017 Volt, I'm looking to to forum for ideas. Occasionally I do need to plug the car in in the dark. Does anyone have any thoughts of an economical LED/sensor combination that could cut that cost to...

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. SOLVED - Charging problem at public stations

    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. Sticky charge door

    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. Carlarm's wish list for changes to the Volt

    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...
