Re: Chevrolet announces update to all 2017-2019 Bolts with fast charging

The technical bulletin for this item 20-NA-053 states " Using SPS verify if the vehicle has the latest calibration in the K114B Hybrid / EV Powertrain control module 2." The bulletin continues - (paraphrasing): If not up to date - update module 2. If up to date give the car back to the cus...

Re: BoBattery failure - How good is the warranty going to be?

The Bolts new battery has arrived at the dealer. They have sent me lots of images. Very interesting for me. It is a brand new battery with the new style of cooling connections. GM customer care has been contacting us periodically to ensure we are informed and comfortable with what is going on. In co...

Re: BoBattery failure - How good is the warranty going to be?

So my Bolt went back to the dealer for actual battery capacity testing. It had to stay overnight. They gave me a loaner rental car. Next day - The dealer service manager communicated that the battery testing was completed and that cell 29 voltage indicated a problem. He said they were communicating ...

Re: BoBattery failure - How good is the warranty going to be?

The Bolt went into the dealer and had the "battery capacity reset" procedure done. It stayed overnight while this happened. After the procedure the service manager and I took a set of readings on the car using the torque - pro to get the data from the OBD2 port. On my way home it was notic...

Re: BoBattery failure - How good is the warranty going to be?

I heard back from my dealer 2 days ago and we had a phone discussion yesterday. I am pleased we are moving forward. We discussed the Bolts symptoms and why I believe that the battery needs diagnosing. They stated the first step of diagnosis is to bring the vehicle in and leave it overnight. They wil...

Re: BoBattery failure - How good is the warranty going to be?

I continue not hear back from Chevrolet about my Bolt's lack of battery capacity problem. Although I resent having to do it I have set myself up to get battery data from the OBD2 connection. I had to load a very invasive Bluetooth emulator program into my PC and purchase TorquePro. I also needed Ast...

Re: BoBattery failure - How good is the warranty going to be?

This not a range issue - although the indicated range is reduced. The issue is battery capacity. I think what I am up against is the fact that I live in Manitoba. As I understand it GM has the policy of not selling Bolts in areas that do not give a rebate of some kind to purchase one. Manitoba gives...

BoBattery failure - How good is the warranty going to be?

A few weeks ago we were coming home in our Bolt. The State of Charge meter was indicating 25% full. The vehicle gave us a low power remaining / propulsion power reduced warning and slowed the car. The SOC bars turned orange and black and started to disappear. Within 3 Km we were dead beside the road...

Re: Chirping when electricity stops

I have ordered an OpenEVSE charger. I am hoping that when I turn it off (sleep) that the Bolt will not chirp. I am an Arduinoist so the Opensource charger will work well for me. I do not understand why one would build an EV that if the utility turns off charging with OnStar it does nothing but if th...
