Edit: Mine is a 2017 built in March IIRC #05698
not a problem, I plugged in an older OBDII Bluetooth reader and it wiped part of the ECM NV ram. it took out the stored settings for oil life and the Learned crankshaft position sensor. I have a newer wifi version that does not give me the problem.If you dont mind me asking, what mishap did you have with an older OBDII reader? Did it throw some codes at you that weren't valid. I dont use one but am curious of the downside.
A couple of weeks ago my check engine light came on and stayed on. I took it in to Rydell and they reprogrammed the power inverter module while I waited - "New software per PIP5410C reprogrammed PIM to latest calibrations". Seems to have solved the problem.
Yup, got a call from my dealer yesterday for this, but doesn't show up in the MyChev app.#17058: Service Update - P2097 (Post O2 Trim Diagnostic) False Failing - (Feb 10, 2017)

No VIN breakdown so all gen 2 Volts are affected.
I'd be interested in knowing if you actively tried clearing a code?not a problem, I plugged in an older OBDII Bluetooth reader and it wiped part of the ECM NV ram. it took out the stored settings for oil life and the Learned crankshaft position sensor.

Nice but doesn't appear to support iOS, or ship to Canada, I might have to do some shopping.I didn't even bother with my old OBD2 reader. For $12 I dedicated one of these to our 2017 Volt:
It reads and clears codes fine using Torque Pro. It also has a power-off button, to avoid parasitic drain on the battery. So I just leave it plugged in and powered off, unless the car is in for service.
