  5. USB music stick malfunction

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Since I bought my 2013 (two years ago) I’ve used the same USB stick which contained all my music. A few times I’ve re-synced the stick with my PC as I’ve updated my collection.

  6. '17 Premier: 17-Month Ownership Update

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Took delivery in early July 2016, and besides a couple of software updates, I've experienced three issues all covered under warranty over the 24k miles I've driven. The 12-volt battery died. This was the worst problem because it wouldn't start and had to be flatbedded to dealer. Then, the...

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I bought my Volt 2014 from USA and found a strange glitch in the radio: I can tune to odd frequencies (such as 101.9 FM), but cannot tune to even ones (such as 101.8 FM). The problem is that most FM stations have even frequencies, and I cannot listen them. Please help me to fix this.

  10. 2015 Non Bose Upgrade

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I have always had something other than a stock radio so I simply couldn’t stand the Non Bose stock deal any longer. First thing I did was add an 8” powered Bazooka and tapped off of the rear passenger speaker wires at the post. For power I added an inline fuse to the existing fuse block on...

  12. 2012, not impressed with the stereo quality.

    Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
    Have had the 2012 Volt since Feb and am totally not impressed with the stereo. My other car is a 2003 Monte Carlo with the stereo up grade and I guess I am spoiled but this unit is poor quality. The high tones are way to "bright" and even with the high turned off and the mid set low it is...

  15. Strange center stack behavior

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Lately, when I first get in the car (2013 with factory nav) and am fiddling with the center stack (usually on XM, but sometimes on radio or playing from a flash drive), turning the volume control knob (the lower knob) changes the channel/station/song, rather than changing the volume. Very...

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    Costco has been selling the Cobra CDR 840 dashboard camera for a decent price. I picked one up last weekend and installed it in my 2013 Volt with the base radio.

    I was driving down the road and the radio randomly went totally blank. I hit the power button a couple of times then the background and music came on like when you initially get in the car. I thought is was odd and was a little afraid... what if the car randomly turned off. Not sure if the...
