  1. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 2 Volt
    I own a 2018 Volt that I purchased in 2019 and my wife really loves this car and I do when she lets me drive it ;). I recently had a leaking windshield washer tank and consulting this forum I learned that other owners of similar volts had the same issue with the tank being punctured by a screw...
  2. Use, Care & Maintenance - Gen 1 Chevy Volt
    Hey everyone. I hit a large piece of debris on the highway on my way to work and it damaged the underside of the car. I was wondering if anyone out there with more experience with the volt can look at the photos and tell me if it's safe to drive or if it's just superficial damage to an...
  3. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    Couldn't find a relevant post so I wanted to ask everyone who had to replace or repair their first generation volt traction/high voltage battery: What was your typical use of the Volt like? How often and how far did you usually drive and charge? Did you notice the battery having issues after...
  4. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    Hi, My Chevy Volt 2012 has 102k miles and a decent service life. In late May 2021 the car failed to start, was jumped with AAA, and I drove it to Sunrise Chevy in Forest Hills, NY where this Volt had been serviced many times before. The car has not been fixed because (apparently) a part no...

  6. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    This question arose and was touched on in another thread, where I mentioned taking my Volt to the close-by auto repair shop that I've been taking my other/prior cars to for 10 years, without complaint. Someone responded that I should take it to a Chevy dealer, because they'd be more up-to-date...
  7. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen 1 Volt
    Hi - After a number of glorious years, my stock EVSE stopped working. The top light turns green and the bottom light flashes red three times, pauses, and then flashes red three times again. Rinse, repeat. I've tried different outlets with the same outcome. I took it to a dealership who...
  8. Electric Vehicle Batteries & Plug-In Charging
    I bought a 2013 Volt used that came with an EVSE from a previous model year. It is a Lear unit with the orange charge cord and black power cord noted as a 2012 replacement in Steverino’s thread on differences in Gen 1 EVSEs. This EVSE wasn’t talking nice to my car. I don’t know if it was...
  9. Generation 1 Chevy Volt (2011-2015)
    Hello, I recently totaled my 2013 Volt (not my fault). Most of the damage is up front, and it doesn't appear to be too deep - radiators will need to be replaced, etc. Charger module got scuffed, but it's probably fine. Steering wheel and knee airbags deployed. It looks like most of the...
  10. Chevy Volt Engineering and Design
    I was driving into work one day, climbed a hill just fine and as soon as I started down the hill the gas engine shut off and no acceleration, the only thing that was on was the display and the ACC lights. I had it towed to the Chevy dealership. They were able to charge the battery and got it to...

    Just turned over 90k miles on my 2011. I have the hatch strut recall and I wanted to take it in to the dealership before I reached 100k miles anyway. I just bought the car used a month ago. I have no idea what maintenance has been done. I'm going to have the tires rotated and oil changed...
  12. Use, Care & Maintenance - Gen 1 Chevy Volt
    A tree fell on my Volt Friday....poor car, it didn't deserve that! It's hit on all four sides, hood has a 2 foot dent, huge dents, etc. I've started the claim with my insurance company. I know my landlord at work where it happened has some coverage as well. Any advice on claims or repair? I...
  13. Electric Vehicle Batteries & Plug-In Charging
    First of all, I'd like to whole-heartedly thank and recognize all of you running and contributing to this site. I have been following the Volt since very early in its inception, and a lot of my information throughout the years has come from this site (even though I didn't join the forum until...
  14. Use, Care & Maintenance - Gen 1 Chevy Volt
    Can anyone tell me the best bet for purchasing a 2013 Volt Factory Service Manual set? I would prefer a CD or pdf version. I have found full printed set for about $300 (ouch) Thanks Jon

  17. Accessories, Apps, Modifications - Gen 1 Volt
    Has anyone had to have their Blink charger repaired? I'm curious what your experience was like with Blink. My charger died a week ago today. By dead, I mean that it won't do anything. It won't charge the car, nothing appears on the screen, etc.. When I flip the circuit breaker off and back...

    I had my volt #1569 in for a repair last week. This post is not about that but I will expand on that at the end. During the repair there was a recall made for the 120v charger that comes with the car. This repair was suppose to be included in the voluntary battery upgrade kit, but was left out...
