  1. Crazy lock problem

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I'm hoping someone can help me because I'm confounded by my Gen II 2016. I'm a surfer, so to lock my car, I use the blade (physical) key to lock the car so I can take it with me in the water. I leave the RKE in the car, remove the cover to the cylinder lock, and lock with the blade key. All...

  3. ChargePoint 120v Charger Door Stuck Open

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    I stopped at a ChargePoint station (combo 120v/240v station) to charge today and the 120v door was physically stuck open with a locking pin obstructing the ability to close the door. No matter what I did with my RFID card, it wouldn't release the pin. (I even tried plugging in my 120 charger...

  5. Charger Security device

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    I have read a couple of threads on how to secure the Volt's 110V charger when it is in use, but havent found a solution I was happy with. I have been backing over the cord to keep it secure under my tire, but am afraid of damaging the cord. I came up with what I think is a pretty good solution...
  6. What's that sound?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Just doing a sanity check here... Whenever my Volt's been sitting for awhile (15mins?), and I go to unlock one of the doors (side or hatch) I hear a ultra-quick series of clicks coming out of the rear of the car (driver's side). It's usually accompanied by a delay in unlocking the door; for...
  7. Door Locks Unlock While Driving

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    From time to time the door locks on my 2013 live an independent life. They unlock on their own while the car is being driven. Sometimes it is just one of the doors and other times it is both. If I re-lock them while driving, they might stay locked or the locks might pop up again a few minutes...
  8. Charger Disconnect Alarm Warning

    Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
    I've discovered that when you disconnect the Volt from a Charger while it's locked the alarm will go off a few seconds later. I suppose this is to prevent someone from removing your volt from a charger without your knowledge or permission. While I appreciate the intent, I'd rather not wake up...
