Hi all, 2017 Volt here, almost 109k on the ol' ticker. Got to work yesterday with 22 miles on the GOM. Got in the car to drive home and it's at 1 with the CEL on. A few times restarting it, the number climbed from 1 to 22 then I got it started and drove straight to get a new 12v battery, thinking that was the issue. I had the original 12v battery and it said it needed to be charged (according to the guy at batteries plus). Got it changed, drove home and charged it overnight. Got in this morning and had the CEL and has the same faults as last night (see image). I will be getting the car towed to the Chevy dealer to get diagnosed with, probably a BECM. Any advice for me?

I would love to switch to a Bolt but between the brutal winters in Wisconsin and slow charging time, I don't think that's the best choice for me at the moment.
Well, you got nothin' right now, and might have your Volt functional by spring. What's your plan for winter?

The same thought has crossed my mind but an 8-12 month wait here for an EUV.
all the more reason to order now, if it meets your needs. I want Ultium so I'm waiting for an Equinox EV, but you can bet I'll have that reservation in within hours of them opening for the right trim.

Buy one, try it, report back? I can't imagine any authorized service shop doing that though as long as that "incompatible" stays in the documentation, and it only got there because someone PUT it there.
