Re: Problem: Full charge capacity dropping

Have any of you Bolt owners, who are having "battery capacity degradation" concerns, used TorquePro to measure the HV battery capacity and cell voltages for ALL cells? If you haven't, find someone who is using TorquePro and have him measure your battery capacity and cell voltages. The Torq...

Re: Bricked

Yes, silly me, thinking that large high voltage full charged battery was sufficient to keep by Bolt going! With the ignition turned off and the key FOB removed from the car, I am wondering if the 12-volt battery charging function is also powered down and the HV battery does not charge the 12-volt A...
