Re: DCFC: Difficult "handshake" to initiate charge

I have heard some Spark owners report charging problems at some (but not all) new Electrify America chargers but I don’t know what the exact underlying issue is. Spark EVs seem to be able to successfully charge at EA locations where BTCP chargers are installed. However, Spark EVs are having ABB cha...

Re: Anyone else receive a “4th of July Lease Termination Event” letter from a dealer?

Could you provide some details? (e.g., offer didn't exist, offered "no cost" but ended up costing $6000, etc.)

You asked " What do I do, if I lock my Key Fob in car? " - that question has been answered. Now if you have misplaced your key+fob and want to drive the car ... Buy a third fob, pair it with the car (described in the manual), then wrap it in anti-static (radio-wave impervious) paper - or b...

Re: What do I do, if I lock my Key Fob in car?

I have always carried a spare (flat) key in my wallet for almost every car I have owned. I have only used a spare 3 times in over 30 years (and two of those were because my wife and my son locked the key in the car). I don't need to do that with the Bolt (and didn't for the Spark) because I can unlo...
