Re: Bricked

Although I guess I understand your issue, a month is a long time to leave any car. The Bolt certainly has the possibility of a work around for your unique situation. The Bolt has the ability to be remote started from an app on your phone. On a long trip as you describe, you could start your car up o...

Re: Madera Electrify America DCFC Station Underway

JeffN, Thanks for posting! I just returned from my nearby Electrify America station where I have made numerous attempts to charge with no luck. I really didn't need to charge but was anxious to see if this would fix my issue. Indeed it did. Worked like a charm. The build date on my Bolt EV is August...

Re: Madera Electrify America DCFC Station Underway

JeffN, Thanks for the information. I watched the video. I will return to the Electrify America station in my area when I get a chance and give this procedure a try. I'll report my experience. Incidentally, the cables (short length) and connectors at the Electrify America stations look exactly like t...

Re: Madera Electrify America DCFC Station Underway

A word of warning about Electrify America Stations. Please don't let your expectations overflow! I live in Memphis Tennessee. Electrify America just went live with their station here, which is the only DCFC station which supports SAE/CCS in a metro area of a million plus residents. The two closest s...

Re: Set time zone on clock?

That said, I have used the MyChevy app 'KeyPass' to unlock/lock my car. With a new realization that I don't know as much as I think I do (I mean I'm pretty smart, but obviously I can be wrong), I'm gonna wade back into the deep water. Keypass and Mychevy app work slightly differently. Yes they both...

Re: Set time zone on clock?

After reviewing the conversation I did a test of my own and to my astonishment I have concluded that I am WRONG! OMG! (Sorry i had to have a dramatic moment). Convinced that I was still right I browsed every page of the owner's manual and failed to find out where the clock setting signal is coming f...

Re: Set time zone on clock?

I don't know anything about this but it seems odd that GM would design a system to update time only from a device that not all vehicle owners may have. If you look at the point you just made, That's why GM has a manual setting for the clock. It could also be argued that "it seems odd that GM w...

Re: Set time zone on clock?

I know the time zone is set by OnStar, to which I no longer have a paid subscription. Are you sure about that? I was under the impression that the infotainment time was kept updated through Apple car play or Android auto by cell phone data received when you connect your smartphone to the car using ...

Re: Preconditioning: Why does it turn parking lights on?

This is true of all GM cars with remote start (or remote pre-conditioning if you prefer that term). GM cars with an internal combustion engine will start the engine and pre-condition the cabin heat or A/C and the lights will illuminate. As for our all-electric Bolt EV the car powers on and begins pr...
