    Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    I was driving this evening with the fan only mode in the hvac selection. For the first 15 minutes of the drive it was fan half way speed just as usual only drawing 3%, then it shoot up to 80%, heater turned on and warm air started to come out, the temp was set to 70f.

    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...
