  1. Brake Warning Lights after "Hard Reboot"

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I recently went to fill the completely depleted gas. I got the car to a station and filled it, only to find the Charing System Light (12v) was illuminated and the car would not start.

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
