BritMan wrote:2019 Chevy Bolt, 37,000 miles. Based near Monterey California. I've just recently started to notice that the Bolt is using 1kWh when just sitting still. No lights on, radio off, no heater (etc.) Yet it's consuming 1kWh. This has been happening for about a month...so eventually I check under the bonnet/hood and find the pumps are running. (Brains trust here should have checked before)....yet the car hasn't been driven for 4 hours and the air temp is 60F. Should I be concerned and start regular under bonnet checks or is this a normal situation?
Are you talking about 1 kW?
If you're talking about 1 kWh, over what span of time?
Of course the car when in READY mode draws at least several hundred watts. IIRC, you'll see at least 0.5 kW of power draw in enhanced layout in READY mode. If you have auto-defog on, that can go up. If you have auto HVAC on (I never use that), who knows what it's doing behind your back?
