    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy 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...

    My wife scraped the passenger side front fender of our 2013 Volt while backing out of a parking lot at ~5mph.

    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.

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    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...

  9. Key Fob / Remote Stopped Working Temporarily

    Generation 1 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...
