Re: Bolt convenience question

You could walk to the glass with the key fob and do the 'precondition'. And remember, this is to heat or cool the car depending on the season.

I can walk to this wall which red brick covered on the outside where my car is parked and the key fob works thru the wall!

Re: stock charger says 120V

Just a quick note, installing a 30A circuit is right between the two main power ratings for most EVSE's, There is a 80% constant duty of a circuit rule. That's why you see these charge values. - 20A circuits are used for 16A/3.8kW EVSE's. - 40A circuits are used for 32A/7.2kW EVSE's, which is the ma...

Re: stock charger says 120V

.... What is the downside of that, ... Downsides: You have a potentially dangerous 120V outlet in your house that actually has 240V on it. That adapter should be hidden if you ever have an inspector come through. You only get twice the power after buying this adapter. 2.8kW vs. 1.4 kW. Upside: You ...

Re: New to the Bolt wifi - software questions

.... I am not really sure what my outlet in the garage is rated for current wise. Its gfci protected and the whole garage was built and wired in the late 90's so i suspect its capable of 12amps but i would rather not test such things and find out i am wrong. ... hope they decide to outfit the cars ...

Re: Phantom Power Usage?

I think he means 1kW on the Power / Regen display. I see this routinely in Ready mode. I don't see decimal points for kW so I think it is rounding up to 1kW for all the systems running in the car when no HVAC systems are on. Could be only 600 Watts. Who knows? When in D,L,R the drive unit oil pump i...

Re: Aftermarket DC fast charge options

Yeah, sorry for the lack of compassion. Pleading with the dirty dealer that sold it to you is your only hope. Tell them you want to exchange it for one with the DCFC 'Option', if they won't take it back and give you a refund. Or be a slime like those guys and sell it without mentioning,,, you know w...

Shift Selector??

How does it work with Park being between D and N -- R?

Do you have to come to a complete stop anytime you shift from D to R and R to D?

I like not having to do that in EV's and some Hybrids.

Re: 60% of Americans Don’t Even Know That Plug-in Electric Vehicles Exist

That hoopla part is right!
The rest of it is just sad.

Look at the Volt. Such a great concept that's been around since '11 and still people don't know what it is....
