  2. Brand New 2019 Volt Pre - Button on Driver Door will not unlock the car, must use FOB

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I just purchased a new 2019 Volt; last one they were going to get. One thing that annoyed me but I chose to ignore is that I noticed the driver door button could be used to lock the car, but not unlock it. After reading the manual and looking at the setup options, I see this should work, but...
  3. Radio Presets Keep Disappearing

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen2 Volt
    I set my radio preset buttons to genres of music on my USB flash drive, but it from time to time erases them all! The radio (FM) presets seem to stay put, just the MP3 genres. Anyone else encounter this, and if so, was it a defect you had corrected on warranty, problem with the flash drive, or...

  5. Weak lift gate struts?

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Hi all, I bought my 2012 Volt yesterday and noticed the hatchback was harder to open than a different Volt I had previously test driven. The main difference is that on a flat surface I have to put muscle into pushing the gate all the way up for it to stay there- the one I test drove I pushed the...
  6. Chevy or the dealership standing behind the lemon would be nice

    Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
    Chevy or the dealership standing behind the lemon would be nice. Issues 1. Every time it gets cold the car acts up. 2. Dealership does not enter the service into Chevy's database, so when you call you "volt adviser" they have no record of you car being worked on. 3. Even when they pull...

    Hi all, we got a new 2013 Volt yesterday (Friday). So far only 10 miles of driving with it. Did have a problem last night. I tried to use the voice recognition system and after saying a command it would do nothing for thirty seconds and then reboot. Tried about twenty times, same result...
  11. Hot air when ICE kicks in while running the A/C

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Here's what happens... driving along with the A/C on Economy, temp set to 77, cabin is at temp so its pretty much steady state. Then either because I switch on MM or because the battery is depleted the ICE kicks on. Now I get hot air coming from the vents. I can compensate by adjusting the...
  12. iPod audio stops playing

    Software & Programming/Code - Chevy Volt
    I have 2011 Volt#639 and am delighted with it. There's a minor problem that has become more annoying. While listening to the iPod through the USB port, the audio will just stop. It doesn't fade down like on an incoming phone call or using the voice prompts, it stops abruptly. The time...

    My Eaton Pow-R-Station, 220v EVSE, was installed yesterday. The Volt charged as it should and everything seemed fine. BUT.... Once the car reached full charge, the EVSE switches off, then seconds later either the EVSE or the Volt decides it needs to continue charging so the EVSE turns back...
  15. Minor Problem - Cruise Control "Typo"?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I was just on the highway and I LOVE the way the Volt's cruise control works. Once you have it set a little window pops up on the display that tells you at what speed the cruise is set at....and the vehicle very accurately keeps the speed you have it set to. Once the cruise is set you can hit...
