I had the same issue -- mine wouldn't set using the "buttons" on the door to lock the car (my normal routine). At first, I didn't realize you HAD to use the FOB to arm it (unlike my 2013).Doors lock set to automatic lock when door is shut, just like my 2012 volt. I did what you suggested, using the fob to lock, and still N.G.
While you're there, definitely have them test to make sure the vehicle's theft alarm (for it being STOLEN) is also working. I would be concerned that if the charge cord isn't working, the whole system might be busted.[/QUot
I thought of that also.
I checked the manual for a fuse related to the alarm, there are none, probably tied into some other item.
Would like to set off the base alarm to see if it functions, but have no idea to to set it off.
Any input would be appreciated.
Wait! The door alarm is completely different from the EVSE unplugged alarm. Which one are you trying to get to work? If it is the EVSE alarm, have you set your car to your "HOME" location for charging at Level 2? If you have, then this is what is telling the EVSE alarm system that you are at home and to NOT sound the alarm.Sort of an update to the alarm problem. Dealer hooked up his cord , I moved 30 feet from my Volt he opened the door and the alarm sounded almost instantly. As previously stated it will not sound in my driveway either with the 110 cord or the 220. Went across the street to a neighbors house , no alarm. Went to my sons house 15 miles away opened the door and the alarm went right off. Got to believe there is some kind of RF interference in my area. Had my 2012 Volt for 7 years and it worked all the time.
Not the most important item but would love to solve.
