  1. Deadlocking the car and closing the windows

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hi there, My first post here. I have a 2012 Ampera which seems is exactly the same as the Volt apart from the Hold Mode. One issue I have is with locking the car. On all my previous cars with two presses on the lock button on the keyfob the car would be deadlocked, ie, the doors would not open...
  2. How to lock car and then do watersports? (salt water)

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Is there a good solution to leaving the Volt and going surfing/kiteboarding/windsurfing/swimming? Is there some take-with-you hard key solution beyond hiding a fob without a battery in/on the car and then going thru some gymnastics to start the car? The fob could be put in a plastic bag and...
  3. Lost a key, what years will interchange?

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    Recently on vacation my wife lost her key (we suspect it's at the bottom of the lake :mad:) My car is a 2013. Called the dealer and the quote was insane. However, I did find a fob from a 2014...will it work? Appreciate any input, did a search of the site and came up empty handed.
  4. 2011 remote key fob replacement rubber pad?

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    The rubber switch-button cover of my 2011 remote is starting to fall apart. Electrically and mechanically it's fine other than that. Is the rubber pad available as a replacement part? I suspect that it is functionally the same as any recent GM 5-button unit but the 2011 Volt has a plug icon on...

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    My wife and I recently bought a used 2014 Volt with a little under 20,000 miles on it. It has charging issues, but I have an appointment at a local Chevy dealer to fix that, and that's not my biggest concern right now. Sometimes while driving (twice in the 100 miles that we've driven it) the...
  6. Broken Key Fob

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    I've had my Volt a total of 2 weeks and 3 days. I usually just keep my key fob in my pants pocket because, well, you all know why. So I decided to just press the silver button to just flip out the key and noticed that it felt a little wonky. I can now just push the key back into locking...
  7. remote tote

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    To help protect my Chevy Volt keyfob from the gradual damage of daily use, I bought a set of leather keyfob protectors, "Remote Totes", like I got for my previous Nissan a couple of years ago when its keyfob broke off from the keychain. The extra large size works well for 2010 & newer GM vehicle...
