  1. Can worn tires cause stabilitrack light to come on?

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    My stabilittrack light is almost always on. It initially goes on when I turn my wheels toward the right. But then it stays on. But when I turn the ignition off and then turn it back on the light goes off. My tires are pretty worn and I’m wondering if this can be because of the issue. How would I...

    Last Friday, I picked my 2014 Volt up from the dealership after having the AGM battery replaced, the cabin air filter changed, and the oil changed. By Monday, every time I start the car, I am confronted with dual warnings for Stabilitrak and Airbag service. After clearing the messages, the...

    Hi everyone, I purchased a 2018 Volt new in Scottsdale, Arizona in December 2017. The performance on my car is significantly above what Chevy has advertised as far as electric range and MPG.

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Wife and I just leased our first domestic car two nights ago: 2016 Chevy Volt Premier with almost every option except the upgraded rims. We did it through the Costco program. The car had only 3 miles on it from the PDI until we test drove it. We drove it home with no problems and very...
  7. MY 2012 Volt Traction Control (TCS) and StabiliTrak (ESP) Manual Deactivation

    Chevy Volt Engineering and Design
    After reading the 2012 Volt owners manual I found out the Traction Control (TCS) and the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) can be manually deactivated. This feature is nice because sometimes I like to have "fun". With the 2011 Volt the TCS and ESP cannot manually be deactivated. I am sure other...
