  1. it's winter, but AC always comes on...

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    OK, just to get this out of the way - Auto Defog is turned OFF. Besides that, it's currently clear and very low humidity. What's happening is that no matter how warm we set the desired temperature in our 2014 Volt, the Air Conditioning Indicator on the Climate Screen will almost always go to...
  2. Fan Only setting blows cooled air on very hot days?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    First time Volt buyer question - I just bought a 2015 Volt and noticed that on the recent HOT days (over 95 degrees, feels like 108+) the fan only setting blows cooled air. Is this due to the Volt automatically cooling the battery? The Climate Efficiency reading runs at only 7% to 9% (the same...
  3. Eco-conscious cars should allow upgrades without insisting we buy leather

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I am very excited to buy the 2016 Volt just as soon as I possibly can. I already have the electrician putting in the new charger! BUT... It looks like I'm going to have to buy leather in order to upgrade to the safety/tech packages. This seems to miss the point of why people might be buying...
  4. Problems with Climate Control

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I seem to be experiencing some climate control problems with my volt. Everything works fine with the exception of the "foot warming. It's blowing freezing cold air at my feet. I suspect I have something set up wrong. Any advise?
  5. 2013 Issues!!

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Facts: Leased new in March 2013; have 19047 miles as of Dec 10, 2014. Love the car; HATE the car. Because of so many problems, GM better give me a too-good-to-be-true deal to lease a 2016. In most of the dealership repair visits, they have provided a Volt. That's when I noticed a big...
  6. Problem with ECO setting

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    The day I bought my new Volt (last week), I headed across the desert from Southern CA to South TX. The first day of my trip, everything worked perfectly. On the second day, most things worked perfectly, but I was unable to select the ECO setting of the climate control. The button was grayed-out...
  7. climate settings - saved or not

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hi Guys- I know this has been brought up many times, but in my searches on this site, I still didn't find a clear answer. I ask for forgiveness in advance. *hands up in self defense* Sometimes my climate settings appear to be remembered (I get back in the car, it's still set to...
  8. Climate control would not come on

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Had my Volt for about a week. Drove to store while in ECO mode. When I started it up and drove home, the climate control was unresponsive. None of the selections worked, couldn't turn anything on. No fan, no a/c, no air flow at all. After I pulled into the garage, I turned the car off and got a...

  11. Climate Control in the Summer

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I am very close to purchasing a Volt (just waiting for the dealer to find the options I want, and for GM to put out its January incentives), but I had one quick question. It seems like much has been made of the climate control issues in very low temperatures and the trade-off between comfort...
  12. Why 65%?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    This morning, I'm driving (19 miles) without any HVAC (that I know of), no headlights, no wipers, no seat warmers, no defoggers, and my windows are up. I'm also in Fan Only mode--with the fan off. The outside temperature was about 51F (11C). With all this in place, why is my Climate Setting on...
  13. Fan Only Mode using 24% climate....question.

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I know that when it's hot the ac compressor will cool the battery regardless if you have any ventilation on. If I put it in Fan only mode it shows 24% climate and blows cool air. Then it drops back to 4% and doesn't blow cool air. The question is, am I really using more battery when the fan...
