Is there a way to keep the default charge rate at 12 amps? Mine resets every time to 8 amps and I have to go and change it back to 12 amps every time I plug in.
You can use location based charging, which sets your home location to always use 12 amps.Is there a way to keep the default charge rate at 12 amps? Mine resets every time to 8 amps and I have to go and change it back to 12 amps every time I plug in.
Settings for location based charging only remain active for ~6 months [Correction: 90 days], then you must set the Home Location again.I got it to work, thanks. RTFM, but what fun would that be. I also figured out all the other vehicle customizations on that screen.
Ironically, I answered this post even though I had never used 120v charging on my 2017 gen2 Volt -- I do use location based time of completion charging on my gen2 Volt. Otherwise, my car has always been charging at 240v 15A at home, and occasionally at 208v public chargers at 16A. I have also used 240v 12A charging using the 240v=>120v pigtail (a splurge).You can use location based charging, which sets your home location to always use 12 amps.
Charge Limit Preference Selection
The Charge Limit Preference setting allows the customer to select their vehicle’s charge level so it matches the capability of their charging location... The Charge Limit Preference setting resets to the Reduced 8 amp setting each time the vehicle is driven. Location Based Charging can be enabled to maintain Maximum 12 amp setting at a specified Home location. See “Location Based Charging” later in this section...
