Re: Bolt keeps honking at me...

That's a little like saying "I've never had an accident, so I don't want to pay the extra cost of having seatbelts or airbags in my car". "Less expensive ways"? It's software, running thru the same speaker as the horn, isn't it? Or is it a $1.25 part? Page 11 of latest NPRM list...

Re: Bolt keeps honking at me...

On the pesedrian warning system, the National Highway Transportstion Safety Administration has 157 pages of sleep inducing text on the matter: https://www.nhtsa.gov/sites/nhtsa.dot.gov/files/documents/812347-minimumsoundrequirements.pdf Out of curiosity, I looked up the statistics on car - pedestria...

Re: Special Charging rates for Bolt Owners

It is pretty lame if a dealer does not have at least one 240 Volt Level 2 charger. For at least the 2017 tax year, there was an up to 30% US federal tax credit for installing an electric charging apparatus which applied to both individuals and businesses. I have not seen the tax rules for 2018. The ...

Re: Radio turns on with start

I agree with the remarks in the previous post. Further, I would like to have the additional option, “shuffle by album,” when the infotainment System is controlling Apple devices. It makes more sense to play album oriented material like symphonies or audio books with their tracks in order before shuf...

Re: Car Wash Mode

I am glad to have found this thread. I agree that there should be some more overt means of setting car wash mode that is less like needing to know a hidden move in a video game. It is too easy to mess up the procedure if the owner doesn’t inform the wash attendant or the attendant is distracted from...

Re: Bolt keeps forgetting charge rate limit setting

Thanks again for the memory jog. I went though the manual and set things the way I wanted them back when I got the car. I fixated on the screen for setting the charge rate and overlooked the energy settings menu on the other screen for entering location based charging. It would make more sense to ha...

Re: Bolt keeps forgetting charge rate limit setting

Thanks very much for the suggestion! I found that the home location had been deleted by the firmware update. I was able to set home location in the location based charging submenu on the energy settings screen. I believe the problem may be resolved. I had set up location based charging when I got th...

Re: Bolt keeps forgetting charge rate limit setting

No, I did not reset the home location. I guess I’ll have to figure out how to do that. For what it is worth, I did not continue OnStar after the three month trial. Hopefully Onstar is not needed. In another thread, I mentioned that GM should update its service procedure for the dealer technician to ...

Bolt keeps forgetting charge rate limit setting

I just took my 2017 Bolt to the dealer on July 25 for the required battery condition monitoring firmware update. The firmware update changed a number of my settings and zeroed my energy consumption history. Even more irritating is that every time I start the car, the charge rate limit resets form 12...
