Re: LUG NUT KEY

Same thing happened to me, took the Bolt in for its first tire rotation and software upgrade and they couldn't find the lug nut key. (had to explain that I didn't need the engine oil change!) They ordered a kit to remove/replace the lug nuts that included a new key; the work order showed "key s...

Re: charging at dealer?

Probably best to contact said dealer in advance to inquire. I was making a trip in my first Leaf that would make it a bit chancy on the return, but there was a Nissan dealer near my destination. Called and verified that they had a charging station and yes, I could use it. When I got there, it was tu...

charging at dealer?

Do Chevy dealers have an EVSE available for L2 charging? When I had a Nissan Leaf, I was under the impression that mos dealers had charging stations that were outside and available. The one at my dealer is in an unfenced area, and presumably usable 24/7. A local Cadillac dealer has an EVSE outside f...

Re: infotainment screen frozen

Thanks for the info! Coming from 4 years of 2 different Leafs, I'm used to certain information being displayed in particular ways, the Bolt is quite different in some respects, and it's taking some getting used to. However, the information seems to be there and I'm finding it more natural to access ...

Re: infotainment screen frozen

Rick, Thanks for the info, I'll try to remember it for when/if there's a next time. Rick said: If it's not the latest version (14.4.2), the infotaintainment update might help. How do you tell the version? Can they update over the air like Tesla, or do I have to take it in? While you're here, is ther...

infotainment screen frozen

Yesterday, the screen froze up, pressing anything did nothing. The "home" button next to the volume control also was inoperative. After shutting down the car, the screen remained lit up. As I was home, and had other stuff to do, I figured I'd leave it sit, then disconnect the 12-volt batte...

Re: Traction battery disconnect?

Thanks for the info, I've passed it along to 3 local Volunteer Fire Departments. Interestingly, the sheet from GM said only to "cut the 12 volt battery cable twice, then wait 10 minutes so the air bags won't deploy". The only mention of the high voltage system is to "stay away, don't ...

Traction battery disconnect?

Asking for a friend who is a volunteer fireman: Is there a way to disconnect the HV traction battery in a crash/ rescue situation? I know the Leaf has a disconnect switch under the floor behind the front seats, but I see no mention of such a device in the Bolt. If I'm reading the manual correctly, i...

Re: Vehicle Names

Not sure anyone else has this minor complaint, but why did GM name this car the Bolt, after having the first plug in called the Volt? Right now I have both in my garage and I can't tell you of the confusion when I talk to my friends and family about my 2 EV's. Just getting through the linguistics i...

headlight adjustment

If I have a full load, IE: 4 adults, oncoming traffic flashes their lights at me; from reflections on buildings when I turn a corner shows why. The low beams are aimed too high. With only 2 people in the car, the adjustment appears to be JUST low enough. Where is the adjustment, and which way do you...
