  1. Hack achieved! ERDTT is now ERDTD (Engine Running Due To Driver)

    Gen2 Volt Accessories and Modifications
    What I wanted: Normal operation when desired Force off mode when making short trips below ERDTT temp. Force on mode when making long trips (further than full charge) but still want SOME heat (ie: ~34°) Well, this is exactly what I've got now. :D I've got 3 resistors I can choose from: a fixed...
  2. Chevy Volt vs Cadillac ELR - why not make your Chevy a Caddy?

    Software & Programming/Code - Chevy Volt
    So why haven't I heard about anyone reprogramming their Volt with ELR values? Software programs such as EFILive or HPTuners support the ECM (engine control module) but not necessarily all the hybrid parameters. HOWEVER, a GM MDI and GDS2 subscription would allow someone to program in the VIN of...

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications

  4. Newbie questions

    Software & Programming/Code - Chevy Volt

  6. Easy Dash Mounting of iPad Mini to Volt Dashboard

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    Are you envious of your Tesla-owning friends who have a much bigger center stack display than your Volt? Did you not spring for the Navigation option on your Volt and now regret it? Would you like to have the option of Internet radio, Stitcher, Podcasts, or Pandora? Would you like to have...
  7. Script to start the Volt

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    I've hacked together a small script to emulate the OnStar's remote start feature. The big advantage this has to what OnStar offers is that this can be configured (via Windows "Scheduled Tasks" feature) to run automatically at a set schedule. Because that was my intended purpose, it...
