Hi kindly help, my Chevrolet volt 2013 battery is not charging. I have replaced the 12volts battery buy it keeps shutting down even if I jump start it it doesn't get charged. The dashboard dtc shows service battery charging system. The volt is out of the coverage of onstar so they cant run checks. Please advice if there is anything I need to reset.
Replacing my OBCM
You may have an issue with the Lear 3.3kW High Voltage Charger on your Gen1. The on board charger keeps the 12V AGM topped-off during the charging cycle and this can be tested by performing the following:
With the Volt OFF and 12V AGM connected, begin a charge by plugging in your EVSE. After a couple of min, check the DC Voltage between B+ and chassis ground. It should indicate @13VDC. Lift the negative cable off of the 12V AGM removing it from the circuit. Your Volt should continue charging uninterrupted and there should continue to be @13VDC present between B+ and chassis ground.
