Re: Radio turns on whenever I turn the car off

Yeah, mine does the same thing. I don't know how to prevent it.

Re: trading in an EV - do you bring the EVSE Charger?

AFAIK, all new EV's come with a L1 EVSE. It's part of the car, like a tire jack and spare tire used to be. If I bought a used EV, I would expect it to be there or require the dealer to supply it at no extra charge.

It's permanent once set (of course you can manually change it). For sure it applies to all AC charging, not sure about DCFC but it should apply there as well.

WeberAuto on YouTube has posted a lot of videos showing (and disassembling) the components of the Bolt. Here's one that my help with coolant loops, but you can search for others.

Re: leasing

Yeah, since the car is under the normal warranty, it can be serviced at any Chevy dealer. I have read a few reports that some dealers don't sell or service Bolts, but those are the exception.

Sounds like Eric may have contacted GM about this. You can email him and ask what he found out. Check the "about" section of his YouTube channel for his contact info.
Let us know what you find out.

Re: Dead Car, Dead 12V Battery
