"High Voltage Charging System" message after repair

Mon Feb 26, 2018 8:44 pm

Hi

This is my first post in the forum so excuse me if i don't provide all the details. I just got my Bolt back after 3 weeks at a body shop (extensive body work after a side swipe :( ) After I got home i noticed a new message "High Voltage Charging System" as an alert. I also noticed that the car is not charging at the rate it should (25 miles an hr - I have a Level2 charger). It is charging but very slowly. What is wrong?

What is happening is that the car is telling you to bring it to your Chevy dealer.

I guess as the message is a "Service" message.

That is some very informative advice SparkE. Congrats to captain obvious for not having the slightest bit of info as to WHY this message is coming up when no damage was done to the battery !!

Does anyone actually know WHY this message appears, and HOW it is reset ??

It comes up because there is a problem with the charging system. It is "reset" by fixing the problem. Not really any different than a "Bulb out" or "Low Tire Pressure" warning - correct the issue and the warning goes away.

From the Owners Manual, Pg 135;
"Messages displayed in the DIC indicate the status of the vehicle or some action that may be needed to correct a condition. Multiple messages may display one after the other.
The messages that do not require immediate action can be acknowledged and cleared by pressing V ("checkmark" button).
The messages that require immediate action cannot be cleared until that action is performed.
All messages should be taken seriously; clearing the message does not correct the problem.
The following are the possible messages and some information about them....
SERVICE HIGH VOLTAGE CHARGING SYSTEM
This message displays when there is a problem with the high voltage charging system. See your dealer for service."
