Re: Bolt Winter Range and Driving Experience

I totally agree... battery conditioning is based on the battery pack temp, not the ambient temps. I keep my car overnight in a heated garage, so battery is likely 50-60 degrees when I leave my house. Probably warmer if I’ve been charging. But even after getting cold-soaked for >12 hours in ambient t...

Re: Bolt Winter Range and Driving Experience

Members on another Bolt forum mention preconditioning as a way to heat the car that has less impact on battery levels. Could someone remind me what this is? There are actually two different types of “conditioning” with the Bolt, which is where most of the confusion comes from. PRECONDITIONING is ac...

Bolt Winter Range and Driving Experience

I’ve now got enough winter driving experience with my Bolt EV that I thought I would post a review and share my experiences. A bit about me. I live in a mountain resort town. I’ve put around 6000 miles on my Bolt in the first 5 months of ownership. My primary mission is to drive to and from work, an...

Re: Bolt EV Key Not Recognized

I’m 100% sure my issue was KeyPass. In my first month of ownership I had this problem apx 6 Times, all while KeyPass was enabled. Since disabling KeyPass, >4000 miles with not one single episode. Doesn’t meant there aren’t other issues that are caused by something else. But I believe my issue was a ...

Re: Winter Tires & Wheels

Toyo Celsius seems better all around than the factory tires. Dry road performance similar, perhaps slightly better. You can still chirp the tires on 0-60 full acceleration. Cornering is better. Wet road performance is significantly better than the factory tires. Haven’t had a chance yet to drive the...

Re: Winter Tires & Wheels

I recently purchased a set of Toyo Celsius all-weather tires. These are a 4 season tire that is rated for snow and has snow tire ratings comparable to a dedicated snow tire. I suspect I will only get 2-3 seasons out of them... but don’t have to worry about switching out tires twice per year. So far ...

Re: KeyPass

I’ve had major issues with KeyPass including car alarm going off and Key Fob not being recognized repeatedly. Since turning KeyPass off, 100% of those problems have gone away. Not really sure what KeyPass is supposed to do that the Key Fob and MyChevrolet app/OnStar don’t do. In my experience, KeyPa...

Re: Has anyone had this problem? Key Fob, Bolt won't start.

Have you got “KeyPass” enabled? If so, try disabling that and see if your problems go away. I was having all kinds of problems with KeyPass including alarm going off and Keyfob not being recognized. After disabling KeyPass, my problems have completely resolved and the Key Fob works perfectly. IMHO K...

Re: Driver seat making my Right leg numb ??

I’ll bet you a nickel you keep your wallet in your right rear pocket? If so, try moving that to your front pocket first. I frequently see what we sometimes refer to as a “wallet palsy” where men get pain or numbness in their sciatic nerve from sitting on their wallet. The Bolt seats will exacerbate ...

Re: Bolt EV Key Not Recognized

So does anyone know if Chevy support is still monitoring and responding to posts on this forum? It looks like they were in early days, but I don't think I've seen any replies from them in recent past.
