  1. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen2 Volt
    I have owned my fully loaded 2017 Volt Premier since November 2016. It has 22K miles on it and I drive it almost all the time in Electric mode and have had no issues at all so far. Last week, I started noticing something new: virtually every time I power the car off from operating it in...
  2. 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...

    Hi all- A couple weeks ago I noticed that when I turned on my volt (2017, 42k mi) the EV range was at 1 mi, then over 20 seconds slowly ramped up to full range. This happened a few times. The check-engine-light illuminated. Codes were as follows; P1E00, U2619, U2620, U2621, U2622, U2623...

    Yesterday my 2017 Volt (17,900 miles) wouldn't start. When I put it in reverse it displayed a "Shift to Park" message. (Had the shifter replaced a few months ago due to a similar problem.) It also displayed something like, "Can't charge car," even though the battery was fully charged. Engine...

    2017 Volt - 38k miles. I've owned the car 3 years and bought extended warranty when I purchased the vehicle used with ~7k miles. In three years, no problems. Recently, I started receiving a "Shift to Park" message which I was able to resolve through patience and methodically turning the...
  6. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I am getting the "shift to park" message sometimes when turning off the car. The gear select indicator is showing "P" but there must be more than one position sensor because it still displays "shift to park". I can usually get past this by squeezing the shift lock trigger. Sometimes I have to...

    After almost 3 years with my 2017 I finally got hit with the infamous "Shift to Park" error. Went to start the Volt this weekend, shifted to D, "Shift to Park. Action Required." Tried about 10 times. No luck. Got out of the car, went into the house. Went back a few minutes later. It...

    Yesterday when driving I noticed the service engine light displayed on the DIC and called OnStar to determine the error codes which they stated there was only 1 code which was P1E00 (The vehicle's electric system is not performing as expected. The HPCM (VIC) may or may not have another code...

    I would like to share an issue I experienced on Friday May 5th. While traveling to work, my 2017 Volt LT turned on the engine check light and requested me to shift to Park.

  12. Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen2 Volt
    I was driving and all of the sudden I was unable to accelerate. The console chimed and said required action shift to park. I stopped the car (luckily I was in a place to do so since I was unable to accelerate). The car then would do nothing. The engine light was on, the car had power (I had...
