Re: Is HVAC burning you up too? Chevy says "nothing wrong"

I apologize for not posting an update for quite some time. However, I don't have anything new to add, yet.

My dealer DID convince GM to send a field tech to look at my car, and this behavior did manage to raise both his eyebrows. Still waiting for the next steps, though...

Re: How Do You Turn Off the Radio?

I'm not sure you understand. The menu allows you to set the volume when the car comes on from "off" to loud so even if you have the volume loud when you turn the car off this is a simple way to have the volume off when the car is turned back on. It doesn't seem like a big deal to me, I ju...

Re: How Do You Turn Off the Radio?

Can someone tell me how to stop that stupid startup sound from playing every time I get in or start the car? Can I mute that? Radio Settings -> Audio Cues: Off The manual (page 177) never defines what "Audio Cues" are, but it's the swooshy sound that plays with the animation on power-up a...

Re: How Do You Turn Off the Radio?

I don't understand why so many people seem to be apologizing for or justifying this peculiarity of the Infotainment system's operation. How hard is it to say THIS IS A BUG and CHEVY SHOULD FIX THIS? It's not about the semantics of "radio off" vs. "mute" -- there's a button that, ...

Re: How Do You Turn Off the Radio?

The Bolt's audio/infotainment system is completely new and has nothing to do with any other setup from GM. It's never been used on any other car GM produces. You can not compare it to anything else, like the Volt or Spark :!: One can compare its operation to the expectation a reasonable person woul...

Re: How Do You Turn Off the Radio?

Call Chevrolet's Infotainment team at 855-478-7767 (Press "3" for the MyLink department and have the last 8 digits of your VIN handy) Tell the agent that you are unsatisfied that your Bolt EV can't remember your Infotainment's MUTE setting when you start your car. They will tell you your ...

Re: Is HVAC burning you up too? Chevy says "nothing wrong"

I wonder if there is some mode the climate can get into if charging stops unexpectedly. I'll let you know if I see this again. And it's on a Volt, not Bolt. With regard to setting the "auto" climate control to 74º and eventually having the cabin climb past 86º, I've noticed no difference ...

Re: Radio turns on with start

Based on the way Chevy and the dealer are responding to this query, maybe we're using the wrong language. Of course the radio (head unit) turns on with start-- the touch screen display is integral to the operation of the car. The problem might be more precisely described as the sound system UN-MUTES...

Re: Is HVAC burning you up too? Chevy says "nothing wrong"

My dealer has asked me to bring my car back tomorrow so they can perform an "Air Conditioning Diagnostic Test" for General Motors. Not sure what is involved in this test, or even if it will provide them with any relevant information (since if they just set the temperature control to "...
