  1. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 1 Volt
    After having no problems with my 2013 Volt, it now is completely dead in my driveway. When I pressed ignition yesterday, ALL warning lights came on, everything seemed locked, I could change gears, but nothing else worked. I tried a few times and then everything went black. The battery had...

    Yesterday I was driving my volt and got out of the house and hardly drive 2 miles when I started hearing wierd noise like grinding so I started to pull my car in safe side and shortly after that the car stopped working. It turns on and everything however when I put it in gear and try to move it...
  3. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 2 Volt
    I have a 2016 Volt Premier. - My second Volt. Last year, my 12 V battery died while I was camping, so I replaced it myself, without knowing how to pop the truck without power. Was really fun! :) . A few months later, my fuse harness connected to the 12 V battery went bad, so I must have...
  4. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 1 Volt
    Hey there, Happy owner of a 2013 Volt here. Well, happy until last weekend. I'd never had any problems with this car, but on Saturday it showed the "Service High-Voltage Charging System" message. Thankfully it was in my garage at home, so I was able to troubleshoot stuff over 2 days. I pored...
  5. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 2 Volt
    Hello! I am a proud owner of two Volts 2017, however I have a big issue with one :( I bought it crashed, because they don't sell those in my country in Europe. It was after an accident - safety belt blew up. I had it fixed and everything is ok now, but it won't start. Unfortunately, no...
  6. Use, Care & Maintenance - Gen 1 Chevy Volt
    My wife scraped the passenger side front fender of our 2013 Volt while backing out of a parking lot at ~5mph. The turn signal lamp got smashed, and the bumper came loose, but the inside didn't seem to have suffered any damage. That night however, the car didn't charge, and unfortunately the next...
  7. Electric Vehicle Batteries & Plug-In Charging
    Recently took a 6 hour drive and stayed the night at a hotel. Started with a full charge on the battery. When I stopped the car and after unloading I noticed when I went to lock the doors that the center consul was still lit and the Volt logo was on even though the car was turned off. Noticed...

  9. Accessories, Apps, Modifications - Gen 1 Volt
    UPDATE: Bottom line is DO NOT CONNECT A SCANGAUGE II TO YOUR VOLT, or Cruse, or I'm not sure what else.... The original charge problem was from the original EVSE that I got with the car. I would be at work charging, it would be raining. I would take it home and charge on 220, then the next day...
  10. Accessories, Apps, Modifications - Gen 1 Volt
    UPDATE: This happened a second time. See DEAD VOLT II. The end result, it was the EVSE in the rain caused the first two codes. It was me trying to reset them with a SCANGAUGE II that caused all the other errors! DO NOT CONNECT A SCANGAUGE II TO A VOLT! It requests so much info, it makes the cars...
  11. Chevy Volt News, Events
    Hello all, I've just read an article in EV World about Tesla's Roadster BRICK problem ... meaning that if you leave it unplugged for a long period of time, the batteries get totally discharged and get totally dead. The only solution is to replace the batteries at a cost of 40 000$ and NOT...
  12. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    I came out of the movie theater and tried to demonstrate to my friend how I can remote start my car. The car was unresponsive, even from a few feet away. Even the unlock/lock buttons didn't work. I almost freaked out, and then remembered to pop out the manual key. I opened my door and tried...
