Re: MyChevrolet App questions

But is the precondition feature only part of a paid tier of on star or is it part of the 10 years free that supposedly comes with a new 2020 (which I just purchased)? Precondition is all I care about and when I set up on star they made it sound like I had to have the paid tier to have that feature....

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

Have you ever had a Bolt EV charging experience greater than 44Kw? I understand the higher amp DCFCs are more prevalent up in NorCal. I haven't done that much DCFC but my personal best was 46kW at a newer EVGO unit near Sacramento, CA. -- I'm hoping this update improves my 2017 Bolt's DCFC performa...

I've had the exact same issue with EA chargers in the SF Bay Area.

The Bolt manual states our car will DCFC at "up to 75kW"..

One of the drivers at a recent EV event in my area created this fellow (drinking the poison nectar through a straw) to illustrate the issue at hand. ..

Re: buzzing, humming, fan blowing while charging???

Hi Nils, It sounds like your Bolt's battery management system is activating the liquid cooling function. Mine has done this in hot weather as well at the end of a level 2 charge. At the end of each regular charge cycle when the green indicator light stays solid there is a 'battery conditioning' whic...
