  1. Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    Blue 2013 Volt I'm not a car person and I have no intuition on how to proceed, but I hope to get some help sourcing salvage parts to install myself. Did I already pay way too much for the fender and rim? I've suffered a series of disasters this year. Most recently, my roommate had an accident...
  2. Chevy Volt Engineering and Design
    The Power Inverter Module (24279726) on my '12 Volt Premium has failed due to an internal coolant leak. The car will run on battery or ICE, and charge, but has a slew of code and there is coolant leaking out of the aux cable. I provided the dealer with a 'good' used module from a wrecked vehicle...
  3. Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    Hello, I have a 2014 volt that currently is making a loud screeching noise when I break. I begin to drive and it doesn't do it till about 15 minutes of driving. It's does it when I drive with the ICE. I charge it, but haven't driven it enough on electric to say it only does it on ICE. I hope...
  4. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Gen 1 Ampera/Volt 2015/32k miles When I press the power button, a loud hum starts about 3 seconds after. It stops if I either set the cabin heater Blower fan to 'OFF' or reduce the temperature to 'LOW'. Local Ampera (it's a UK car) Service agent changed the cabin blower motor fan (under the...
  5. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I have a 2012 volt without opt yk8, I was wondering if the volt is compatible with any 2011-2014 transmission?
  6. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    First, let me say thank you to everyone who has put a lot of time and effort into making this site what it is. As someone still stuck in the days of carbs and points, it has made the experience of owning a first-gen Volt a lot easier and enjoyable. From diagnosis of the most trivial to most...
  7. Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    I couldn’t find too many videos of a Gen 1, so figured I would post some from this weekend. Mods are a Whiteline rear sway, and some BfGoodrich Comp-2 A/S tires in the stock size. I’ve had the car for about a year and it is pretty much free from the gas savings commuting to school. I have been...
  8. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Last Friday, I picked my 2014 Volt up from the dealership after having the AGM battery replaced, the cabin air filter changed, and the oil changed. By Monday, every time I start the car, I am confronted with dual warnings for Stabilitrak and Airbag service. After clearing the messages, the...

    ⚡️Is a 2016 Bolt / Volt evse/charge cord backwards compatible with the 2013 Volt? I searched but could not find any backwards compatibility information regarding using a 2016 EVSE to charge a 1st generation 2013 Volt? Thanks everyone!
  10. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hey everyone, I drive a 2013 Gen1 Chevy Volt and have been having some problems with my A/C. Recently I was not getting any cold air from my eco or comfort settings. The fan still blew air, the heater still blew hot air, and the heated seats still worked. The check engine light came on the other...
  11. Care, Maintenance & Service - Gen2 Volt
    I recently took my '12 to a dealer I'd been to twice before, and was informed they no longer had a Volt Tech on staff. They'd had the one, and he left. I'm assuming it was just a rough patch, and they'll have a new Tech on staff soon, but it made me wonder. Are Volt Techs being de-prioritized...
  12. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hey all: Contemplating the following: • repair my 2011 - #2472 for between $3000 - $6000 depending on whether svc manager is able to approval for getting 50% discount on repair • trade in for an ICE • Trade in used Volt • Trade in for a new Volt - second opinion This is...

    This is a link to a bulb I now have in my Gen 1 Backup Light. https://www.amazon.com/JDM-ASTAR-Extremely-Chipsets-Projector/dp/B00NPIUFMM/ref=sr_1_15?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1499269715&sr=1-15&keywords=jdm+astar Brightest Backup Light I have ever seen. (1200) Lumens Xenon White. Well worth...
  14. Buying, Leasing & Selling - Chevy Volt
    When I got my Volt (Gen 1) in November 2013, gas prices were high, and it "seemed" like a no-brainer - buy a Volt. Now, though, over 3 years later, I do have a low-mileage Volt, but it's not worth a lot. In fact, I owe $18K on it, but KBB says my expected trade-in range is $9,535 to $11,306...
  15. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Has anyone found any aftermarket body trim panels that replace the cheap grey plastic along the bottom exterior of the gen1? I like how the car looks except for those plastic bits. I'm usually not a body kit type of guy, but I think it would look a lot more sophisticated if they were shiny and...
  16. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Since there is no spare tire, and the stock tires are weak and pop so easily, has anyone found another brand of tire that works on the volt and isn't so delicate? I know the tires were selected for certain reasons - noise, low rolling resistance, ride quality - but there are a ton of reports of...
  17. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I just did a back to back comparison this weekend at a dealership in a couple of used Gen1's, and honestly I couldn't tell the difference. I was expecting the bose to WOW me, but it didn't. Anyone else think the bose upgrade is wasted money?
  18. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    ... and I really liked it. I'm shopping for my first EV, and though I'm on the tesla model 3 reservation list, I'll probably get a used EV like the gen1 volt or used BMW i3 instead for about half the cost of the model 3. (dammit I misspelled the title. "POTENTIAL used gen1 volt buyer takes...
  19. Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    My 2012 Volt is due for its second yearly emissions test. It failed the test a year ago. I am almost entirely electric and the gas engine had not been run for weeks. So, after failing the test, I stopped plugging in, accumulated 100 consecutive gas miles, and passed the emissions test on the...
