According to my 2017 Volts windows sticker, it's supposed to have the illuminated charge port. When I charge my volt nothing in the charge port lights up. I'm guessing since that option is dealer installed, the probably messed up the install somehow or the other possibility is there's some setting I need to use to activate the light for the port?

Thanks Les de NA5AA

The illuminated port looks different from the standard charging port. If it's on the window sticker and you don't have it, I'd bring the car back to the dealer. You were charged for it - so you might as well have it installed.

Check the VIN on the car/window sticker also to ensure you have the correct car.

The illuminated charging port is on my window sticker for $225.00, the VIN on the sticker matches my cars VIN, and it appears it may be installed since there is a off white plastic in the same shape as the illuminated one in the picture Nebula posted in this thread. It's either faulty or not connected. I'll contact the dealer and get it corrected.

Why are you posting in the 1st Gen forum if you have a 2017?

Some of the window sticker accessories are dealer installed. They are shipped from a local accessory warehouse with the VIN information on the carton. The accessories are supposed to be installed on the car before delivery, obviously this last step did not occur. The charging port is probably gathering dust in the Parts Dept., Give them a call.

I'd love to add this to my 2017. Cost wise it's not too bad at about $125 and my dealer claims it comes to about 2 hours labor. So about $300 to have it installed after the fact. Decisions Decisions.......

If you are good with tools and can follow written instructions, you can install it yourself and save the $175 labor cost.
