  1. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Ugh...so I took my car in for some body work at a local body shop. When they returned it, he said "the brakes don't seem to be working...be careful" to my son who picked it up. Well, the brakes were FAILED. Long story short, I had it towed to a local dealership in the northern Chicago area...

  3. Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    I've had my 2014 Volt for the past 22 months (13,000 miles) and charge it daily with my Siemens Level-2 evse. A few days ago the Volt would not charge, just go into fault. I grabbed the Voltec level-1 and got the same result. The Volt screen had a message instructing me to call On-Star...
  4. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Not sure what to do next. I have a 1.9 year old Voltec that worked fine for this time, but now I'm experiencing what seems like intermittant connection. I hear the double chirp of the horn randomly at night and then sometimes i'll get a disconnect alert via sms. The strange thing is that it only...
  5. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Today when I went to charge using the L1 EVSE that came with my 2012 Volt, I found that it didn't start charging my car when I connected it. The lights on the unit also would not come on. I connected it to other outlets I do know that work, with no success. Tomorrow I'm going to the dealer to...

    Well today is my first day of Volt failure. I got in my car and powered it on and the car did not move when shifted. The 'Initializing screen' when you first power on stays on for about 10 seconds. The two screens power on, but the car never says 'Ready'. I called OnStar and they found...
  8. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    :confused::(:mad: I have had my 2013 Volt for 6 months, have about 12,000 miles on it. I have parked it in my driveway everyday since outside in the elements and charge it there. I just got back from a trip in Michigan, ( I live near Columbus, Ohio, 368miles round trip) which emptied the charge...
  9. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    It was working, then it was not. It simply failed. No lights, and the handle light does not come on. The Volt does charge via the 120v EVSE. So it is not a Volt failure. Power is flowing to the unit, both fuses have continuity. Flipping the breaker off/on, allowing to sit overnight and flipping...
  10. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    When I plugged in my Volt today, I noticed the charger is recycling the red and green status, and the chirp from the vehicle did not sound. I have posted a video of the charger at Anyone who may have experienced this issue before?
