  1. 2016 - drivers display went blank

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Cadillac ELR
    I just drove the car about 70 miles with no issues. I stopped for about 5 minutes to get some food and when I turned the car back on the drivers screen was blank. If I hit the right-side selector on the steering wheel (like you would to change info on the display) the display comes back on for...

  3. Suggested Improvements to the Volt's Power Flow screen

    Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
    I bought a pre-owned 2015 Volt Base with 18,400 miles on it three weeks ago, and I like it very much. At first, I was fascinated by the Power Flow screen, and I kept it on all the time I was driving. However, my enthusiasm for the Power Flow display lasted only about two days. It provides a...
  4. Problem with Energy Screen Mileage Display

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen2 Volt
    Until recently, my Energy Screen seemed to work fine. Two days ago, the MPGe disappeared from the display and the lifetime MPG average is now wrong. I was hoping it would return to normal after a full charge, but it did not. Has anyone else seen that behavior and/or know the cause or...
  5. 2012 Volt no instant MPG display :(

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Hi All, Not sure if someone out there has wondered, why (at least the 2012) the Volt does not have an instant MPG display. I owned a Nissan Leaf previously and before that a Prius and those had instant MPG readout (Miles per KWh on the Leaf) the Volt seems to not have this, I know I can get the...
  6. Main Display won't power on

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I've heard of people having issues with their center console not turning on but my main console is the one having issues. I have no idea how fast I'm going, how much battery I have left, etc. It seemed to have started intermittently but then I noticed that whenever I let go of the brake, the...
  7. Blank / Dark Drivers Display

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    First let me say that I love this Group! You folks are the greatest resource for Volt information. I had a unique experience today with my 2012 Volt. I started my Volt today to do some errands and immediately noticed that the drivers display was completely dark, I adjusted the display...
  8. Newbie questions

    Software & Programming/Code - Chevy Volt
    Has anyone figured out how to access the display software? At some level there are some graphic assets that I'd really like to replace to reskin it so my state-of-the-art 2015 Volt doesn't have a dashboard from a 1999 e-com website! Heck, the Star Trek: Next Generation LCARS...
  9. ICE running due to no temperature display

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    After work, came back to my volt and the ICE started after I hit the blue button. Nothing special regarding the cold temperature these days. But after a few minutes driving, the ICE was still on so I checked the central consol and... no outside temperature was displayed!!! I had to drive for...
  10. Best $20 upgrade for the Volt

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I was tired of the finger smudges all over the screen so I stopped at the local mall and went to the Ghost Armor booth and asked them if I could purchase a 7" tablet screen protector that I would custom cut to fit my screen in the Volt. I have used their product on all my phones in the past and...
  11. Displays going dark - both behind the wheel and center console

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Anybody had a problem with their displays going dark? I've seen posts about the instrument cluster failing, but mine went dim tonight. I could still make out what was being displayed, but not well. Volt advisor had me check the Display config, but changing from Auto, to Night or Day did not...
