Larry, when can I expect TPW? Thanks for the great info, all is welcomed.
Not sure Larry could come up with a TPW from that, other than to say "sometime after 3000". Schedule I've heard is first deliveries to initial target markets 12/10-2/11. Dealer demos 2/11. First deliveries to later markets 3/11-5/11. Second roll out deliveries 6/11 to end of MY '11 10/11.

Sounds like GM is now planning nationwide deliveries of MY '12 starting 11/11.

Of course there's probably lots of slop there, and who knows when any particular car gets delivered where. It wouldn't surprise me if a So. Cal. car ordered late January might have a build date in the June time frame. But it wouldn't surprise me if it's sooner. The whole scheduling of the production increase from 15,000 to 25,000 units isn't clear.

Who can give you a best estimate? Your dealer. Ask them were you are in their queue of orders, and when they expect to get production slots assigned. They very well may not know, but they might have an idea. Is your dealer saying they expect to deliver a MY '11 car, or a MY '12 car?

Looks like I may not have moved ahead of you after all.....stuck at 4B00 since 1/31.
I think stuck at 4B00 is shipping delay, probably due to weather.

Stuck at 3800 likely means they have to correct a problem or replace a part/s.:eek:

Welcome to the GM Volt forum and thanks for posting. At status code 1102 or 1100 your order is still in your dealers contol. Dealers are given allocation on how many of each model of car they can order each week for the entire month. Then each week they process their orders via a report called Consensus Report. Those are submitted by Tuesday night each week. If your dealer had available allocation and yours was the next in line he then processes your order and GM accepts the order for production Status 2000.


Regarding your question about the Target Production Week. That is usally assigned at status code 3000.

You might wish to speak with your dealer and find out exactly how many volt orders are ahead of you and if he has any allocation left in this months allocation report. The next allocation report should be sent out to the dealers around the 10th and will show available orders for the next period weeks 2-21 thru 3-14 I belive. Its fuzzy in my brain because I have not had my coffee yet this morning.

Here is a good explanation of our tracking process and there are links in my signature with more detals of the process.

Congrats on your order and good luck. Also please enjoy the Volt community and the GM Volt forum. Larry

When you enter your information on the ChevroletConnects.com site you will not show a status for approximately 2 hours for Chevrolet vehicles or until the following business day for GMC, Cadillac or Buick brands.

Production Tracking for Chevrolet vehicles is fully automated and update every two hours 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Tracking information includes production and logistics tracking so you will go from the point of the order all the way to delivery of your new Chevrolet car or truck.

Production Tracking for GMC, Cadillac or Buick vehicles Track by your order number.
We can only do Production tracking for valid US order numbers.
If your current status is 1100-3300, your order will be checked weekly on Wednesday or Thursday. Since orders do not get pulled into 2000 status until late Tuesday night.

If you are at 3400 with a future TPW, your order will not be checked until your TPW.

If you are at 3400 with a current TPW, your order will be checked daily (starting Tuesday) of that week. If you do not have a VIN by the Saturday of your production week, you will not have one until the following Tuesday.

The only orders that will be updated on Monday are the new orders entered in on Saturday and Sunday.

On your updates you may see a date in the notes section. That is your Target Production Week.

The current date reflects the last date your status was checked and a change occurred in your status. You will receive an email update even if your status does not change each time you get checked on global connect.

Once you receive a VIN number you will not receive further updates as we are not provided logistics data on these brands yet. If you contact your dealer they can contact the Dealer Business Center and receive updates. If they provide a railcar number for you we can assist in helping you to use the automated rail tracking system. It is important not to ever talk to live personnel at the railroads or the trucking companies.




Tracking Assistance threads.

There are several tracking threads available for you to post in..No vendors or spamming will be allowed.
In r thread please remember to post up enough information for us to properly answer your questions. Your VIN number, or Order number. Your current status. And of course your question. Your location might also be helpful in determining rail carrier information. Please understand we are all volunteers here. We are not GM employees nor do we charge for the services. We are folks just like you that have taken it on to ourselves to help our fellow GM car buyers. We try to man the threads 24/7 but sometimes we may not be on. So just post up the question and check back for your answer. Every post will get answered within hours which is remarkable since we are just volunteers. We do not speculate or guess what is happening. If we don't know the answer we will get one for you. Since we all have been thru this ride we know the roller coaster of emotions you are feeling. And we are here to help you thru them.

How do I get back to the Connects.com site from the forum?

Click on the big letter "T" at the top left corner or click on "GMtracking.com" at the top or bottom of whichever page you are on.

How can I view my window sticker online?

Simply go to the (brand)connects.com site and pull up your information. Then click on your VIN and it will link to the GM window sticker site. Window stickers usually don’t show up for a few days after the car has actually shipped from the factory so check back often until you see yours.

What do my status codes mean?

500, this is a dealer stock order code used to order common vehicles. Please contact your dealer to receive an actual active order number.
1100, Preliminary order accepted
2000, Order accepted by GM
2030, Order re-edited (if necessary)
2051, Order changed thru Web
2500, Order preferenced
3000, Order accepted by production control
3100, Order available to sequence
3300, Order scheduled for production
3400, Order broadcast
3800, Order produced
4000, Available to ship
4104, Bailment Invoice
4200, Shipped
4300, Intermediate Delivery
4B00, Bayed
5000, Delivered to the dealer
6000, Delivered to the customer
9000, Order Cancelled

What do common Railroad terms mean?

Delivered at Interchange
May switch tracks or the like then on to the next stop
After the interchange you may need to call Union Pacific. The railcar may change carriers.
Delivered at Industry
This is the end of the Rail journey. Rail Car is waiting to be unloaded. Then the Car is just waiting on a truck for the last leg.
ON HOLD
Hold can be anything, no real way to know why it is on HOLD. If it is a prolonged length of time contact the general manager and ask the reason
Bad Order
There is something wrong with the rail car (not your car)….a mechanical failure or the like.
CSX SHIPPING STATUS
Only two possible status for CSX ONHOLD OR SHIPPABLE
Constructively placed
Rail car has been put on a side track waiting to hook up to next ride or to another area depending on the situation
Placed at Customer Location
"placed at customer location" is in a position at the terminal to be unloaded. Is waiting to get moved over to the unloading area
WAY BILLED
The waybill update just means that they have the paper work for the railcar to continue
Diverted in Transit
Change in destination or routing OR instructions- may be a change in destination, route, name of consignee, name of consignor,
party to notify, etc. It is a change in instruction. It doesn’t mean the train itself is diverted. It could be something as simple
as a change made in the paperwork

How do I track my car on a railcar?

The first thing you will need is a railcar number. This can be received from your dealer by asking them to contact the Dealer Business Center and asking for it. You can also call Customer Service and ask an advisor for it. Not in all cases will your dealer provide you with a railcar number nor will the Customer Service Reps. I think a lot has to do with the relationship you develop with them. Once you have a railcar number, most important. Never talk to live personnel at the railroad! Only use automated phone system. If it attempts to transfer you to a live person please hang up. The railcar information we are provided by GM is given as a courtesy and if we call live personnel we will lose our data and ability to track
CSX
1. Call the CSX 1-800-235-2352
2. When prompted for location or weight, press "1" on your phone for location.
3. When prompted for the car initials, say ETTX (whatever initials you have) then wait for the next prompt. OR key in 32-81-81-92 (for ETTX)(letter and position on your phone)
4. When prompted for the car number, say 907048 or key in whatever your car number is
5. When prompted for next car say DONE.
6. That's it; enjoy your updated status report.

Union Pacific
1. Call UP at 1 800 877-5123
2. Follow phone prompts for Trace
3. Say the railcar number complete and clearly. Example ETTX123456 all together
4. Listen for your update

These automated systems can be frustrating. Keep in mind they are intended for use by folks that use them daily all day long. Like I said if you are being transferred to a live person please hang up and try again or simply post up and one of our team would be happy to help.

Yup, I guess our is in area 51 also. Our Volt has also been at 4B00 since 1/31. I thought that status 4B00 meant that the car has been readied to ship. My factory contact says ours is still in quality control but should ship in a few days. I sure hope that I am not running for mayor of area 51!!:)

At some point we will start seeing an interm transportation status 4300 followed by 4B00 which will truly be sequence for QC. But if you are just 4B00 I think it is just a weather related shipping delay. Larry

See my signature, one Mayor hat is enough for me. I hope the better weather sees things moving again. Charlie

Hi. This is my first post. I am in the SF Bay Area. I am also stuck at 4B00. My first 4B00 was on 1-26 and a second on 2-1. My dealer said it could be a weather issue. I'm little frustrated right now. This has been such a long journey. I have followed the Volt for about 3 years. I put in my $1,000 deposit in July. I have VIN #1172. I really hope to get my car this month.

I have Volt #1247 and it was picked up yesterday by the trucking company. I would expect that yours has to go by rail and might be another day or so.

Your dealer is telling you the truth...weather has held up the smooth flow of cars. As it clears they will be able to handle the load and get caught up quickly. As you can see by those that already have their Volt..It is so worth the wait.. keep checking your status and you should see the Cassens trucking update showing up soon. Larry

Cassens is reporting our car #1218 was shipped at 8:57AM today! Anyone have any idea how long it takes for the cars to reach the LA area? Our dealer is Rydell. I wonder if there's a chance of it getting here next week. Getting excited and annoyed - my folks are getting their Volt long before I get my Leaf. I wish there were a CamaroTracking for Nissan, could you work on that Larry? ;)

Where did it ship to? New Boston? With the weather we've been having, who knows. My car took 16 days from pickup to drop off, and that may be faster than is typical (weather was great over Christmas). Three weeks isn't uncommon, but it could happen faster. With the current weather, I wouldn't place any bets on it.

Things seem to take a long time in CSX land (basically east of the big muddy). Once your car transfers to UP it could be just a few days (like, maybe 3 or 4 if nothing pops up on the ride out).

Well its funny you mention that....lol We have actually been contacted by a couple other manufacturers about building a tracking service for them...But for the time being we are GM thru and thru...Hard to change spots when you get as old as Hylton and I...

Once its on a railcar it should take about 10 days give or take...There are still a ton of variables along the route and with this crazy weather cycle we have seen I would not even attempt to predict anything. Once we know its on a train, try your dealer and see if they will call the dealer business center and give you a railcar number. Then we can really track it across the US. Larry
