Bolt EV problem with liquid-cooled CCS cables

Wed Dec 26, 2018 3:42 am

Now that nearly 50 charger locations featuring liquid-cooled CCS cables are open more Bolt EV owners are running into failures when trying to charge on them. Many of these failures may be caused by a common issue.

The good news is that this issue has an easy workaround.

I wrote an article recently about this and it embeds a YouTube video created independently by Eric Way that demonstrates the problem and the workaround.

JeffN, Thanks for posting!

I was one that was having trouble. I just returned from my nearby Electrify America station where I have made numerous attempts to charge with no luck.

I really didn't need to charge but was anxious to see if this would fix my issue. Indeed it did. Worked like a charm.

Thanks also to Eric Way and his "News Columb" Videos.
