  1. 2017 Is this code covered under warranty?

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Gen2 Volt
    I ran my own codes on my '17 Volt and got U1510. To my understanding, this is an active grille shutter issue. My Volt currently has 38k miles and therefore the bumper to bumper is expired but everything else (drivetrain, PZEV emissions, emissions, voltec, powertrain, emissions select state, and...

  3. Software Update Bricked the HPCM

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    I'm new to this forum but I've owned my 2012 Volt for almost 4 years now. It's been a fantastic car, one that I've thoroughly enjoyed. Some time ago, I received the dreaded "Service High Voltage Charging System" warning message. I did some research and took it in, aware that it was probably...
  4. 50k Service Items - Coolant Flush

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    I just hit 5 years and 47k miles on my 2014 Volt. I just brought it into the dealer for probably just my 3rd oil change. Outside of some issues with the charging port, brakes and creaking sounds from the axle I haven't spent much money on maintenance. I brought it in for the oil change and...
  5. Disappearing Volt Techs?

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Gen2 Volt
    I recently took my '12 to a dealer I'd been to twice before, and was informed they no longer had a Volt Tech on staff. They'd had the one, and he left. I'm assuming it was just a rough patch, and they'll have a new Tech on staff soon, but it made me wonder. Are Volt Techs being de-prioritized...

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    My name is Robert. I am new to the GM-Volt Forum. I own a 2012 Volt, which I purchased used from a dealership after it had just returned from a lease. I have owned it for over two years now. I purchased the extended warranty, which expired just 49 days ago. I love my car and have been happy...
  8. Low Battery Coolant 1 week after service -- is driving on Gas ok? Help need advice!

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Today is Dec 19th. One week ago I had routine preventative service on my 2014 Volt. It has about 35K miles on it. Today the "Service High Voltage Charging System" light came on at 2PM PST. OnStar says codes are P1E00, P1FFE, P1FFF. I looked under the hood and the Battery Coolant is...

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    So I had the "service high voltage charging system" back in April. Thanks to the info on here I took it into chevy and they told me my coolant was low but there were no leaks they could find so after topping me off and resetting the system I was back in business. Then yesterday I was driving...

  12. DoChevy dealers care about Volt owners? My recent Chevy service issues.

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Two months ago a front tire went flat so I called OnStar at 9:00 AM. After a completely wasted day of moronic tow companies not showing on time or not showing at all, I finally got my car out of the dealership at 5 PM with a bill about $40 more than every other local independent tire store...
  13. 3rd Year Volt Maintenance

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    So with 3 years and 39,700 miles on my 2012 Volt it was time to pay service a visit. Besides the safety and emissions inspections the car was due for new tires, the obligatory alignment to keep them healthy, and the N14274 lift gate strut rods replacement. Decided to go with the factory...
  14. Chevy or the dealership standing behind the lemon would be nice

    Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
    Chevy or the dealership standing behind the lemon would be nice. Issues 1. Every time it gets cold the car acts up. 2. Dealership does not enter the service into Chevy's database, so when you call you "volt adviser" they have no record of you car being worked on. 3. Even when they pull...
  15. 100,000 Miles of Great Ownership Experience

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    My 2011 Volt passed the 100,000 mile mark last Saturday while on the road to South Bend Indiana for a tremendous football victory by Northwestern over Notre Dame, but that’s another story. My ownership experience with my Volt has been almost as exhilarating as the victory of my Wildcats over the...
  16. What is this Power Module reprogramming service note?

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    So, I took my 2012 Volt into the dealer for its 2nd oil change (35K miles) and tire rotation. The dealer told me that there are two warranty services needed. 1. The battery coolant check and 2. Power Module reprogramming. I have heard of the first one. In fact, it was addressed last year...
  17. Dense Fog and TPMS

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Yesterday, way too early in the morning, I was driving in Central Penna in a rather dense and pervasive fog. Water was condensing and dripping all over the exterior of the Volt as it cut through the fog at 40-45 or so mph. Suddenly the flat tire with exclamation mark light started flashing on...
  18. 2G to 4G Canada OnStar

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    Hey, got a letter in the mail about a month ago, didn't give it much thought but now i'm curious. We all know the new volts come with OnStar's 4G network settings and the current version is 2G. In the letter, it stated that in Canada (maybe US as well) the 2G networks were being dropped and...
  19. service experience in San Jose area

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    If you don't live in the Bay Area, this won't be of interest, but if you have a Volt and are in the South Bay especially this might be useful reference information. My 2012 Volt (~39K miles) had the casing on a motor bearing fail yesterday, resulting in a lot of noise while driving. And, not...
