  1. 2016 Charge door sensor broken and warning

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I washed my 2016 Volt on a below-freezing day this winter, and I went home to plug in to charge, the door had icicles at that time, so I put a bit more pressure in pressing it in to open, it opened fine and I charged it overnight without thinking much about it, since this had occasionally...
  2. AC Solar Sensor and varying fan speeds

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I'm wondering if anyone is experiencing a noticeable variation in fan speed while in AUTO mode. I understand from reading the owners manual that the solar sensor (located on top of the dash) is partially responsible for change in fan speed based on the angle of the sun and how intense the sun...
  3. 2012 First Repair Out of Warranty

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    I've just had the Chevrolet dealer complete the first repair out of warranty on my 2012 Volt. The extended warranty I had purchased with the car expired last month. In August, as preventative maintenance, I did pay to replace the 12-volt battery. The first sign that I needed a repair was the...
  4. Gen 1 - 2012 - CEL at 68k miles - Code P0531

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    I have a 2012. CEL ( Check Engine Light) came on Sunday, car ran perfectly fine. I didn't post about it here or on facebook. I didn't call a Volt advisor as that information would have done nothing but wasted time, I just called my dealer myself Monday morning and made arrangements to drop it...
  5. Outside temperature slow to update

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    My 2013 Volt has always had a minor annoyance (and I do mean minor). The outside temperature reading on the display seems to take a long time to register the correct outside temperature. I notice it mainly when coming out of an underground parking garage, where it is usually around 85 degrees...
  6. TPMS Tire Sensor Info

    Wheels & Tires - Chevy Volt
    After trying to track down a set of TPMS sensors for a set of winter wheels I figured I'd share the best deal I found online after my dealer was quoting around $60 each for original equipment schrader's and like $100 for labor... :confused: You can buy the original TPMS sensors online if you...
  7. My first CEL... Mass Air Flow Sensor.

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    After over 19,000 miles without ever seeing an error.. Today my Volt's CEL came on. There were no messages displayed. I called OnStar and they told me I had Error P0111 and P0113. They said this was something to do with the air intake and it was not critical. It would probably clear it's...
  8. Bird attacked my Volt.

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    This may sound weird but while driving on the highway a small bird flew into my front bumper and popped one of my sensors into the bumper. I tried to see if I could get my hand in to pop it back in place but there are shields preventing access. Since the sensor alarms are now not working, I...
  9. Hid the Volt and auto headlights. How to remove light sensor?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    OK I'm gonna do some research and find out what the proper resistor is to keep the headlights from going on and off in a garage and just on and off and on and off and on and off and off again.lol I want to trick the auto headlights by making them think there is more daylight than there really...
  10. Parking sensor wouldn't stop

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    This afternoon I backed out of my garage. The front parking sensor was on solid when I started, which is not unusual, but it never stopped. Even when I was out of the garage it was still solid. I thought maybe I'd dragged out a cardboard box or something so I got out to look, but there was...
