GM via dealer service department:
Do not remote start vehicle when charging the vehicle. There is a remote chance that could set the codes. So in the Northeast US with 0F outside I should run outside, unplug the Volt, remote start it to warm up, and then go back out when it is warmed up?? Sounded to me like a "Hail Mary" pass to give the customer some reason for codes to be set. Maybe I will add a on/off switch inside the house to the outside outlet that I use for charging the Volt.
It codes are set: Push the start button w/o depressing the brake peddle. Exit vehicle and shut the door. Wait a minute, reenter vehicle and start car. Codes should be cleared. This I kind of believe since when I went out to start car to take to the dealership I did push start button w/o the brake and when a few seconds later I started it with foot on brake check engine light was off. So kind of rings true.
