That worked about a day, then it came back. Last I checked there were 4 instances of 0.0 in my favorites list... :x

Update, now there are what looks like 10 instances of 0.0. Hard to count as scrolling down just shows 0.0 for the whole way to the end of the list.

I cannot use the rear windshied wiper when the car is in Neutral.

Try yours. See if it is just mine.

Strange, but true.
Not a real "problem" just a wierd anomoly.

This is a feature intended to prevent rear wiper damage while going through a car wash.

Is that written down somewhere? Or just a logical assumption? If every car does this, I'll go along with the assumption it was intentional. If it's just mine, I'm calling it a glitch.

The front wipers work in neutral.
Are the back ones particually more delicate?
I'm suspicious.

20 days and just 500 miles so mostly operator errors or adjustments to the new vehicle UI.

The only "glitch" is one night after disconnecting from public charging, and driving away, the main display was black and the driver dash display said "loading" for several minutes before the center display came back, seemingly it had hung during boot and did a watchdog reset boot after some timeout? Annoyance, but the car drove fine so a very minor issue, and it has only happened once in 50ish vehicle starts.

The Chevy UI that has evolved and is nearly perfect in the Malibu and the Equinox is different in the Bolt. I appreciate the much larger center display but basic phone functions are missing, if someone sends me a txt on my 2014 Malibu it would read me the txt and let me pick a canned response, like "call me I am driving" or "be there in 10 minutes". With the Bolt, I hear my phone ding when a txt arrives but I would need to look at the phone to see the txt.

Of course Android Auto is a simply amazing improvement and I will mostly plug the phone in and use it, so this is a very minor issue... (One of the best decisions GM made with the UI was to include Android Auto, this feature should be in every new car sold today IMHO)

Hats off to the team that pulled the Bolt design off, I assumed buying a leading edge technology vehicle that there would be minor issues, so far they are very minor and I am very pleased with the design and performance. The vehicle integration with the "My Chevrolet" app is fantastic and very useful, nicely done...

Three times, at random, the car says there is no key fob present while it was in my pocket. Had to put it at the bottom of the center console to start the car.

One time the center display would show Car a Play and nothing else. Had to reset it and that fixed it.

I have had my car now for about 28 days. I notice a slight but not always high pitch sound when I am in L gear coming to a stop with my foot gradually off the accelerator. I am wondering if this is normal and just the behavior of the car in this mode? When I am in normal drive and reverse there is no noise.

I Just updated the infotainment software to 14.1 to deal with glitches (parking camera staying on at highway speeds, infotainment going black, etc). Now when I open my chevy app, my mpe efficiency (lifetime and current) are way off. They both show in the 1.x mi/kWh, while I'm actually getting 3.x. looks like maybe 1's are taking the place of a 3, but I can't tell for certain. Frustrating for a guy who cares about his numbers...

I have a host of gremlins, some listed here and some I don't see. My Bolt is very early production November 2016. I keep my display set to night because I like the black background. The first indication was my display changed to the default daytime white. Then I started to notice many other glitches. I called OnStar and they just said to take it to the dealer to have it checked. Thanks to this Forum I now have the TSB for the software update. I do use both Apple CarPlay and android-auto.

Here is a list of what I can remember over the last few months:
    Display setting and radio station change when I push the Cruise Control decel button (TSB)
    Loss of personalization settings (TSB)
    Front USB ports stopped working, no charge, no data; started working again later that day (not mentioned in TSB)
    Center console went dead, then came back later that day (TSB)
    Center console display working, but no audio, then came back the next day (TSB)
    Camera Icon remains gray at low speed (TSB)
    Key fob will lock and unlock doors, but not recognized for vehicle start. I had to place the fob in the console receiver pocket to start (not mentioned in TSB)
    Key fob functionality does not work in the MyChevy App (iOS) unless I am within Bluetooth range. I have to use the OnStar app to control the car from afar (probably an App issue, not a car issue)

I will take the car in for the firmware update, then report back.

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 had that problem when I left a USB memory dongle inserted. Now I always remove before startup or before shutdown. never happened again.
