Re: Need help I cannot charge it at home with my 120-volt portable charge cord

It might be a bad charger but here's some things to look at: 1. You can set the charging amps in the settings. I'd try the lowest one and see what happens. 2. Move the charger to an outlet on another circuit. 3. Take a picture of your dash when you have the charger plugged in and post it here. Maybe...

Re: New Bolt owner

Welcome. I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish about resetting the electronics to "factory new". You can change just about any setting yourself., and you'll probably want to set them to your personal preferences anyway. If you don't have an owner's manual, there's probably one onli...

Miles. He's over 300k km.

That's ~50K miles per year. That's a lot of driving!!

Re: Charging at Electrify America

The not-polluting part is really the only part I care about with regards to an electric car. Not spending money out the ear in gas is just a side effect I guess. I've never owned a gasoline (combustion) powered car before so I don't really think about all those things. But I really want a Gasoline ...

Re: Charging at Electrify America

I just checked the Salt Lake Sam's Club Electrify America Supercharger and the one in Green River, UT on plugshare. Both are by the minute still which is a godsend for eSparks and Bolt EVs. Imna stick with free Chargepoint superchargers though (Price CP instead of Green River EA for instance). That...

Re: 2020 Bolt EV Premier Trip Report 2400 miles Labor Day

Thanks for the detail. Looks like you averaged around 3.9 miles/kWh for the whole trip, which is excellent! Can you provide more detail about charging stops (locations) along the BRP? I'd also like to do the BRP. thanks

Re: Charging at Electrify America

They are also updating the stations that did work to faster charging ones. Are you sure about that? I think the charging rate is the same as the old ones, but hopefully the new ones actually work. Here you go, it's under checkins. https://www.plugshare.com/location/172095 Thanks for the link. EA th...

Re: LED Bulbs installed!

I'm not sure what "canbus" is but some cars (maybe the Bolt?) measure the resistance in the light circuits and if it's too high, it throws an error code thinking there's a burned out bulb. To fix that, some people add resistors in the line when they install LEDs. Does "canbus" fi...
