  1. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 2 Volt
    This morning when I got in my 2017 Volt my check engine light came on and diagnostics show two issues. One says it's with Active Fuel Management and the other is Emissions System (I assume it's the gas cap). I tightened the gas cap but haven't drove since doing that. Would these two issues be...
  2. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 1 Volt
    I have enjoyed driving my 2014 Volt to work for several years now. I bought it used with 8K miles and it now has around 51K. Last month, the car would not charge using the level 2 clipper creek charger in my garage. The check engine light stayed on and the car said it was initializing, then it...
  3. Generation 2 Chevy Volt (2016-2020)
    My 2017 Volt is having the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve) replaced this morning. Apparently this is covered under warranty even though the car is 4 1/2 years old; I'm not sure which warranty. I live in Austin Texas. July 5th 125 mile round trip day trip to a water park. On the way...
  4. Generation 2 Chevy Volt (2016-2020)
    Is there a noncritical reason a check engine light could come on? I bought the car yesterday and later in the evening my check engine light came on and stood on. This morning it was off and never came back on. I still took it to dealer for check up and they found nothing wrong? Should I be...
  5. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 2 Volt
    Yesterday my 2017 Volt (17,900 miles) wouldn't start. When I put it in reverse it displayed a "Shift to Park" message. (Had the shifter replaced a few months ago due to a similar problem.) It also displayed something like, "Can't charge car," even though the battery was fully charged. Engine...
  6. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 1 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...
  7. Use, Care & Maintenance - Gen 2 Chevy Volt
    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...
  8. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 2 Volt
    So, first a little recent history with the vehicle: I just bought my 2016 Volt w/ 46k mi around the beginning of November, and a few weeks ago the CEL lit up. I scanned for trouble codes with EngineLink + an LELink adaptor, and found P0401 (EGR flow insufficient). I spoke with CarMax, where I...

    Hello, I just bought a 2012 Chevy Volt, I'm driving and all of a sudden the Propulsion Power Reduced, Engine Not Available warnings and yellow check engine symbol appears, plus sometimes I get hard time starting to move, I put in D and nothing happens, just the bubble that resembles my driving...

    Sorry for the terrible electrical pun, I promise there will be more ;) Hello everyone! I've just purchased a salvage 2013 Chevy Volt.

    Hello everyone. I am owner of 2012 Volt. I bought it two weeks ago. I live in Europe, small country Lithuania and here we don`t have much charging points.

  12. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 2 Volt
    Two days ago, I was driving my car on the highway (~50mph), and as I was braking for a stoplight, I heard a "ding" and a Check Engine Light came on, accompanied by a message that said "Propulsion Reduced". I called OnStar, and they read the code as: P19FC "LION battery is not performing as...
  13. Generation 2 Chevy Volt (2016-2020)
    My Volt has 62 miles on it. Two days ago the Check Engine Light lit up and has stayed on. I find I am able to drive without any problems, the only issue is I cannot remote start. On the key fob I press Lock and then Start (holding it down until the lights flash, which they do) but there is a...
  14. Generation 2 Chevy Volt (2016-2020)
    Wife and I just leased our first domestic car two nights ago: 2016 Chevy Volt Premier with almost every option except the upgraded rims. We did it through the Costco program. The car had only 3 miles on it from the PDI until we test drove it. We drove it home with no problems and very...
  15. Generation 2 Chevy Volt (2016-2020)
    I drove out a 2016 Volt Premier from Momentum Chevrolet in San Jose CA on 24th Nov Evening. I drove the car to work on 25th for 60 miles and there was burning smell from AC vents after the car switched to GAS I called the dealership who assured me that this was normal. At 8 PM at night I tried...
  16. Generation 2 Chevy Volt (2016-2020)
    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...
  17. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    Weird event this morning. I went out to run an errand so I unplugged the car, got in and backed out of the garage before I noticed my battery level was at zero, my engine was running and the check engine light was on. Last night I had used up the battery so as I got home I did a temporary...
  18. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    OnStar ran diags and found the following DTC P1EC6,P1EC4, and P1E00. Dropped the car off at the dealership. Got a call from service advisor that car won't be ready until Saturday. Something about some gloves weren't sent with the part and won't get in until late in the afternoon. Got a call...
  19. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 1 Volt
    This week vin #126 went in for a check engine light issue that had existed for over 2 months. The car was running fine and since I use the engine so little it was not a priority. I took it to Fox Chevrolet in Baltimore. I had one other service experience 8 months ago that was uneventful...
  20. Accessories, Apps, Modifications - Gen 1 Volt
    I've had my 2013 Volt for five weeks. In that time it has spent seven days at the service center for two desperate issues. Today the check engine light came on for the third time. Anybody else have these issues with this frequency? Any suggestions?
