Hello everyone, glad to see there's a community for my car! In the past I've been a part of SaturnFans (99 SL1) and FitFreak (07 Fit Sport) and the resources there were invaluable.
I bought a used lease trade-in 2014 white with 67K for $13K in Oregon after my wife and I were rear ended at a light in the Fit. Long story short, got the car and it wouldn't charge. It also wouldn't blow hot air unless the ICE was actively running. Chevy Dealer fixed both. Charge port and heater module. I've been charging it with the portable charger snaked through a dummy switch from my shed.
Is there anything that is imperative that I check on the car? With my Saturn is was ETCS + Motor Mounts, both went bad, and the fit was coils and cat with the latter being bad.
Simple questions I'm sure, if I precondition 20 minutes before leaving, will I get most of the charge back if I'm using 120V 12AMP? Also when it comes to long distance freeway driving (200 miles) when should I activate mountain mode? At 0 miles or at 12-16 miles?
Thank you for your help.
