    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen2 Volt
    Hello all, Last night, I started getting the infamous “Action Required: Shift to Park” message on my 2018 Volt, with approx. 26,000 miles. Wiggling the shifter has made it go away each time. Searching the forum, though, I see mostly 2016 and 2017 models experiencing this issue. Have any other...

  5. Has anyone had to get their shifter fixed twice?

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I am getting the "shift to park" message sometimes when turning off the car.
