  1. Is it even possible?:confused: Is it possible to control the engine rpm ?

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Hello everyone and thank you for all the good information over the years, I need to diagnose a vibration that only occurs at a mid range ICE RPM. I can not mimic the right RPM just using the gas pedal in park with the hood open. Is it possible for the dealer or even better my self to somehow...
  2. Rattle in the front dash solved

    Chevy Bolt EV Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs
    I had an annoying rattle that was occurring at 40-60 MPH that took me awhile to track down due to the way sound bounces around the cabin. Finally discovered that it was the plastic cover around the forward-looking camera behind the rear view mirror/screen rattling against the windshield. This...
  3. Rattle at high speeds or high wind.

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen2 Volt
    I have a 2017 Volt with 6000 miles on it, a solid 3000 of which are from high speed, long distance, trips on the Ohio turnpike (70 mph speed limit). I keep hearing an annoying rattle at speeds of 70 mph and above that is coming from somewhere in the rear. The rattle also occurs at lower...
  4. Left Side Dash Squeak

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I've had a 2017 Volt Base model for about 4 months now and loving it, except the squeak on the left side of the steering wheel. Has anyone else noticed anything like that? If I'm driving down the road, it will make noise and if I put my finger on it, it stops. It's to the left of the steering...
  5. Getting used to EV cars and hearing everything :: To fix or not try to fix rattle

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I've got a 2017 Premier which I bought from dealer with 5K miles. I've put on 2,500 miles and one thing I've noticed is a small rattle behind the infotainment system. I can repro the issue if I drive to 40 mph and let off the accelerator let is coast to 30. My wife and others aren't bothered...
  6. VoltShelf Owners: does it rattle?

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Apologies of this is in the wrong forum, but since feedback from VoltShelf owners for both Gen 1 and Gen 2 Volts are helpful and there's no "General Accessories" forum, I figured this was my best bet. I'm interested in getting a VoltShelf but am worried that it will rattle against the wide...
  7. 2013 Chevy Volt Rattles

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    First off, I really like my Volt. In fact, it is almost perfect except that it rattles like nothing I have ever owned before. I've had it in to the dealer for probably three weeks total over the past few months and they can't seem to fix it. I do believe they are really trying. Maybe these...
  8. Mysterious rattle.....

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Anyone experience or know the cause of a rattle in the upper left dashboard area around where the airbag and front of the driver side window meets? It happens with or without the engine running and I can't stop it when putting my hand on the various vent's, airbag or nearby pieces.... Thanks...
  9. Finally resolved a rattle coming from the rear/hatch area.

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Hi folks, 2014 Volt owner here. I absolutely love my car. One of the things that had been driving me nuts lately was a rattle from the rear of the vehicle whenever hitting bumps or rough road. I tried a few things to fix it, including backing out the rear hatch rubber stops, removing...
  10. A Great Service Experience at Ted Britt Chevrolet of Sterling

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    As you know me, I am a rather "glass half-empty" type and quick to criticize and point to errors and omissions. So this praise is indeed sincere and well-deserved. I had a short list of minor items that needed addressing so this morning I took my Volt to Ted Britt Chevrolet in Sterling. The...
  11. Passenger Side Airbag Cover Rattle/Tick

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    All, Volt #2 is experiencing a slight rattle (more like a ticking sound) from the passenger side airbag cover. It is particularly annoying since the rest of the car is so quiet. There was a nice previous thread about this problem but I'm hoping someone might be able to pass along thoughts...
  12. 12V Battery Strap/Belt Rattle

    Mechanical Systems - Chevy Volt
    Hi All: For the past few weeks a rattle from the rear of the car had been bothering me. After searching around a bit, I didn’t see anybody else having a similar problem. The rattle was triggered by small bumps or cracks in the road and was audible with the radio on. I’ve been trying to...
  13. Front end rattle

    Mechanical Systems - Chevy Volt
    HI. I've had my Volt for about two months. It has about 1700 miles on the clock. Now that the weather is warmer, I'm driving with the windows open more frequently. I've noticed and squeek-clack sound coming from the front end whenever I hit a bump. It sounds like a loose brake caliper. I'm...
