Re: little 12v battery under hood

Most everything in the car works off the 12V battery....lights, heat, radio, wipers, A/C, computer, etc. Of course the drive motor works off the main battery. There's a lot of discussion about how to check the 12V battery, but it seems that it doesn't give warning when it dies. And when it dies, yo...

Re: Electrify America rolls out new app and prices

Thanks, I've signed up. Hard to find in the play store, I opened the EA site, found the name of the ?developer? on EA's site. Search the play store for that.

Re: Wenatchee to Seattle

Hi all. Anybody driven on one full charge from Wenatchee to Seattle? Or more specifically, from Wenatchee to the Bremerton area. I have not, but I'm wondering why a charge stop isn't in the plans, at least as a contingency? I'd take Rt 2 to Monroe, then 522 to 405 to 5 to the Edmonds ferry, then Ki...

Sorry, base post was a spammer testing access that I thought I had deleted. Spammers will grab sort of random text from someplace and post it to test what happens. Then follow with spam postings.

Re: Problem: Full charge capacity dropping

Did you resolve this? Mine just dropped from 60kWh to 44kWh. The dealer said it was because I'm driving with too much weight and in hot weather (he wants to get rid of me). My advice to any potential Bolt buyers: but a Tesla. Chevy only cares about you up to the point you pay them. Don't confuse Ch...

Re: So are we all going to end up buying our cars after our leases are up?

By 2020 a 2017 Bolt will be akin to a Model T. Given that the 2019 Bolt only has marginal improvements over the 2017, you are expecting miracles to happen in the next year. I would be happy if they pushed up the QC rate on the 2020 Bolt from 55kW to 100+kW and changed nothing else. But I'm not hold...

Re: Bricked

I checked these forums are read a number of postings regarding the 12v low voltage system. Sure enough, I found the 12v battery to be completely dead. Silly me, thinking an electric car would NOT be vulnerable to a dead ICE car battery. This is certainly a design fault or oversight - there is just ...

Re: What "other" BEVs are for sale in Ohio?

VW e-Golf is available in WA, but not Colorado or Ohio. Almost 1000 sold so far this year...

WA is not a CARB state, so we don't get the CARB only cars.

Re: What "other" BEVs are for sale in Ohio?

The question is in the title. A friend (who is convinced that EVs are absolutely not for him) seems to think that BEVs are available from the major auto manufacturers "anywhere". I'm thinking that compliance cars are sold in California and a few other places, but not in Flyover Country. I...
