Re: Service manual

Yes, it is possible. But if it can help you troubleshoot - why not ?! It's not that unlike other forms of piracy. You're depriving whoever developed the manual from revenues, recovering their costs or possibly making it to breakeven/making a profit. And, you're putting $ in the hands of criminals.

Re: HV battery capacity

2017 to 2019 were allegedly 60 kWh while 2020 got upgraded to 66 kWh (https://www.sae.org/news/2019/12/chevy-tweaks-2020-bolt%E2%80%99s-battery-to-add-range). You can see the bump in EPA range rating via https://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/Find.do?action=sbsSelect. That said, I've seen the table at http...

Re: Charging At Home

There are two stupid alerts that for some dumb reason GM rudely leaves on by default when they ship their cars: cord theft alert and power loss alert. Turn them both off. It is super rude to leave those on in shared public and workplace charging settings where it is fine and expected to unplug cars ...

Re: Phantom Power Usage?

2019 Chevy Bolt, 37,000 miles. Based near Monterey California. I've just recently started to notice that the Bolt is using 1kWh when just sitting still.

Re: Charging at Electrify America

I went to an EA site in San Diego yesterday, and it failed miserably, on two levels. First, the chip readers in the pay stations don't work, but when swiping the card the card does read so eventually I figured that out.
