Re: speed limiter

Its a common feature in Europe. They have a lot of speed cameras and traps that americans just dont see coming. When I'm driving in Europe I have Waze on to inform mw what the local speed limit might be, and I use the speed limiter to ensure I don't go more that a few km/h faster than that. This way...

Re: Rodent Access to engine compartment

Rodents have attacked my Bolt, twice. Exactly the same wires both times. It's a harness at the front of the car behind the front fascia. Symptoms include a failure reported in the pedestrian friendly alert system, and a failure of the ambient temp sensor, which in turn causes the air conditioning to...

Re: Android Auto update status?

Text messaging is a mess in the Bolt with Android Auto (IMHO). it's not just you. The problems are widespread, across many phones and not limited to the Bolt or Chevy. They go back at least a year too. The only other tip I can offer is while google assistant is prompting you turn down the volume a b...

Re: Hilltop Reserve/Regen change after software update

Well that's good to know, thanks! I'm convinced the updated has changed the parameters for how this works. I'm assuming it will perhaps hurt my overall range a bt, but it will save my battery. Since I've never felt short on range (I used to drive a Volt and averaged over 2000 mpg - so I know how to ...

Re: Hilltop Reserve/Regen change after software update

I have definitely been in Hlltop reserve mode the entire time.

I have never noticed white lines on the display - can look through the manual, but is it possible someone could post a photo?

Re: Hilltop Reserve/Regen change after software update

It remained on, I almost always have it on unless I'm planning a 280 mile day. Its just that now it seems like the Hilltop Reserve max level is an absolute max level, not something you can regen up higher by, say, going down a hill.

Hilltop Reserve/Regen change after software update

It's been a couple weeks now since I took the car n to the dealer for the recent updates for battery software and entertainment, and something seems to have changed. While my house is on a modest hill, I use Hilltop Reserve mode primarily due to keep the state of charge down a bit on the battery and...

Re: Rats! (actually probably mice)

I was out of town and delayed in picking up the car from the dealer. The repair was covered by my insurance except for my deductible. total bill was nearly $2k IIRC. The mouse had eaten through a couple wires in the front bumper area, and was working on one of the battery cooling hoses. After the re...

Re: This Stupid Recall Just Broke My Car

mod edit: Please be polite. Dude, the guy took his car in for an update, and now its broken. Now he's driving a POS ICE car. On top of al that, he's giving us a heads up that all may not be well with this update. Let's not be that way. If you don't like dealing with sick people, don't get a job as ...

Rats! (actually probably mice)

I thought I was losing connection to a host of systems last week due to a computer failure. First the Pedestrian alert system, then the check system light came on, followed by a message from Onstar to service the Lithium batteries, then the Air conditioning refrigeration stopped working, and finally...
