Problems, Bugs, Weird Stuff, Glitches, Concerns Here

Tue Feb 14, 2017 6:47 am

Lets keep a "glitches" thread going here all in one place.

Bad stuff I've had happen:

-Heat comes on when all indications are it is off

-Touch screen goes completely black

-Radio stuck at A.M. 540 - the lowest Frequency - a frequency I have never used - and I mean STUCK - just static - no way to change volume (stuck at 20 which is kind of loud) - no way to mute - no way to change source - no way to shut it off - neither software or hardware buttons would change anything. Other aspects of touch screen worked so it was not a complete software freeze- just the audio software froze up. (I couldn't take the water-boarding like torture of constant loud static for long and was forced to stop the vehicle on a dark road with no shoulder and power down and "reboot" the whole car.)

Loud grinding sound when going into Park.

Why do I feel like a Beta tester?

If you have any air pointing towards the defrosters, the heat will come on regardless of your settings, whenever necessary to defrost the windows.

From what I have read so far, and I have read a lot of forums and Facebook groups, the Bolt is doing great so far. Knock on wood, I don't feel at all like a beta tester.

Chevy has it's own Bolt forum but almost no one appears to be using it, which is why I switched over to this one.

Same thing. Touch screen comes up totally black at times. No radio either.

Seems to self correct after about 5-10 minutes. I am hitting the power button several times during that, it may affect it.

Appears to be a bug.

I've read several instances of the screen going black, then rebooting, while Apple CarPlay is being used. It happened to me as well.

Keep in mind, the API for CarPlay (and I believe Android as well) is still in beta. Expect glitches as it evolves. An updated version of CarPlay arrives with the next iOS, which should be released real soon.

I knew there would be some issues since I got one of the first 100 or so cars to be made. I'm not worried about it, and the car is a good car.

But there is always that issue of calling up the maker of anything technical made today and you get that standard bullsh*t answer about "well, bring it in for service... we have never heard of that issue before", when your searches are turning up dozens of other people with the same issue.

Raise awareness of the bugs, that's all.

Please post if you have an LT or a Premier Bolt. Also post if you have a Bose Audio system. Thanks!

Only issue I have with my Premier with Bose, is that my iPhone 6 Bluetooth connection is irregular. Sometimes it connects, sometimes it doesn't, and sometimes it disconnects for no reason. I put the phone in the cup holder or on the passenger seat when I drive, so it's close to the Dash, thus should not be a range issue.

Am thinking of disabling the WiFi, since I don't use it anyway to see if the 2.4 GHz spectrum is too crowded for Bluetooth to be "happy", but I don't it.
