Re: Towing really heavy stuff with the Bolt

Hello Adventure, I'll start off by stating what should be obvious or easily discovered, which is that a Bolt isn't rated to tow. That being said, you and you alone are responsible for your actions and well being. You may find this video link of a hitch installation helpful, to have a look at the com...

Re: reverse image not full size on infotainment screen

This is what I get occasionally. As soon as I shift from reverse to drive, it goes to full screen. I doubt this will ever be fixed.

Re: EV tax credit delaying IRS refund?

I received my state refund, but still no federal. Apparently in years past, there weren't any checks in place and people who weren't eligible for the credit, were able to exploit this. Now the IRS probably does a dealership visit and interrogates your salesperson's mother. Don't worry, I'm sure we'l...

Re: Range indicator said "Low" then Bolt immediately died.

Thanks again Tom. I'm fortunate to not have an issue nearly as bad (for now), as the person in the other forum. I've driven 20,000+ miles since the night it died (right before the new year), but I won't push it and go below 20 miles of range anymore. I'll test it at some point when I have access to ...

Re: Chevrolet announces update to all 2017-2019 Bolts with fast charging

The confusing part is that the manual mentions: "When using a DC charging station with at least 80 kW of available power" while they're limit is apparently at 56kW? CCS 1 stations usually peak at 500 volts, so if the station is capable of 150 amp charging (the peak charging current permis...

Re: Chevrolet announces update to all 2017-2019 Bolts with fast charging

The Bolt manual states our car will DCFC at "up to 75kW".. AJ I believe you're mistaken. The 2020 manual states, "When using a DC charging station with at least 80 kW of available power, it will take approximately 30 minutes to recharge from a depleted battery to an estimated 145 km ...

Re: Chevrolet announces update to all 2017-2019 Bolts with fast charging

I just tried an Electrify America 350Kw charger yesterday in Mojave and was disappointed to see a 34Kw charging rate on the dashboard when EVGo gives me 45! Maybe I need this update for this problem as well. If your traction battery temp is below 75°F, dc charge current will be restricted to less t...

Range indicator said "Low" then Bolt immediately died.

Right before new year, just under 36k miles, I was driving to a fast charger (4 miles away), as I pulled up to an intersection, my range meter went from 14 estimated miles, to LOW, and then immediately told me it was out of energy and to pull over. I've been to three different dealers (including the...
