  2. Check engine light, noise under hood, no onstar connection

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    2012 Volt was running fine on the generator when I made a quick stop. After starting it again, I noticed unusually loud noise (generator?) coming from under the hood. Upon driving 2 blocks home, I noticed the check engine light on, but the OnStar button was "dead" so I couldn't check for codes...

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Interesting: Saturday I purchased a Certified PreOwned Volt. I presume that because of the stay at the dealership the battery was depleted - in any case the battery being depleted I was running on the engine generated power. Now remember I purchased the car Saturday, well Saturday night while...

    Advice? Steady Check Engine Light came on yesterday at 1035 miles. Error code: P040B problem with emission system, engine exhaust. The car seems to drive fine, no problems I can observe. I put my first gas in Saturday at 998 miles, so is it possible that it is due to a loose gas cap (now...
