I don't know why it beeps so much. Often I'm at a stop sign and or a stop light and I'm not moving and the car in front of me is not moving and the Volt is beeping away every 2-3 seconds. Is this normal?

The beeping is part of the safety package, called "park assist", and you push the park assist button in the center console to turn off the beeping; but I would pretty much have to turn it off all the time. The safety package is supposed to detect objects that are too close to the car when you're driving in close quarters like a parking lot; gm calls this "park assist" I wonder if mine broke at some point, and became hypersensitive? Maybe I need a car wash? Althuogh the rest of the exterior is clean.

Does anyone else think their gen2 Volt's safety park assist falsely beeps way too much?

My 2017 beeps when I enter my garage and when I get near the wall. It has beeped once or twice in heavy traffic, but certainly not as often as yours, and never done it repeatedly.

I think I'm glad I don't have this feature. My Volt is already the "chattiest" car I've ever owned.

I use it all the time and it doesn't beep too much. Are you getting extremely close to the car ahead of you? Like 3 feet? Maybe you should check and be sure your sensors are clean.

Oh well. I probably after to take my Volt into my local Chevrolet Autonation dealer to have them look at it.

I did wipe off the sensors with my thumb; over lunch, which actually may have helped a little. I'll try using glass wax and a lint free cloth later. It seems to only be the front sensors that are over triggering. If its not due to sensor dirt, then I probably have to take my Volt into my local Chevrolet Autonation dealer to have them look at it.
