  1. Sleeping overnight in a 2016/2017 volt

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I am interested in buying a 2017 volt when it comes to Seattle. I loved that one could put an air mattress in a Tesla and sleep in it heated overnight using just electricity to heat the car (no risk of carbon monoxide too). I have read that one can indeed closely fit an air mattress in a volt...
  2. Any possible Hack to disable A/C operation in Heating mode Eco & Max

    Mechanical Systems - Chevy Volt
    Hi All, In Australia where winters are fairly dry and most areas we DO NOT suffer from the the need to remove cabin condensation / fog, is there any way to override electronically, electrically or mechanically to stop A/C operation while heating. It is absolutely crazy that in Eco / Max...
  3. Solar: All In

    Alternative Energy - Solar, Geo-Thermal, Bio-fuels
    I leased a Volt three weeks ago, and am already considering installing a solar PV system (thanks in no small part to the GM-Volt community, who sparked my interest almost immediately; I've perused these forums daily for weeks, and am amazed at the level of knowledge and helpfulness). I'm in the...
  4. Horrible experience today

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Hello everyone. I had a very bad experience today with a local dealer today where I took my 2013 Volt for a repair and now I really need to vent out my experience. Here is a brief summary of what happened. 1. One of my park lamps got damage due to a rock or ice last week and called the dealer...
  5. In Cabin Fan Gone Rogue

    Software & Programming/Code - Chevy Volt
    I have a 2013 Volt. Yesterday while my wife was driving the car, the fan system suddenly went to full blast and all controls for the fan went dead. The car still ran. My wife drove the car into the garage and called me out before turning the car off. The fan controls on the right side of the...
  6. Too much heat from Climate Control in Mountain Mode

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hi, Anybody ever had this issue where the heater is stuck on maximum heat while in Mountain Mode even when you set the climate ontrol to to LOW? Here are the details: EDIT: Auto defrost if OFF. 1. Outside temperature 2 deg. Celsius (34 F). Depleted battery. Climate control set to 21* deg...
  7. No "OFF" switch for heating/AC ??

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I've searched the owner's manual, but it seems that there is no way to turn off the interior heat/AC system, or at least there is no simple "off" switch that does this. The manual says that you use the least energy in the "Fan Only" mode. Wouldn't it make sense if there was some way to shut off...
  8. Remote Start Best Practice

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    On a morning (50defg) I want to warm my car and cabin while still on power. While driving I find the Eco mode comfortable. Should I set the controls to Comfort level and higher temperature to gain the most boost on my remote start then remember to set them back when I start my driving? What...
