Did I do Any Damage?

Hi there, I have a 2021 Bolt EV and yesterday I had my foot lightly on the brake and was moving about 1 mph. I put the gear into park when the car wasn't completely still and heard a grinding noise. I was in reverse going into a parking space. Did I do any damage? I don't see any warning lights and ...

MyChevrolet App Icon in Android Auto (2021 Bolt EV)

Hi there, When I customize the launcher in Android Auto, there's a greyed-out icon of the MyChevrolet App. The app itself is correctly installed and works fine with my phone. But the greyed-out app icon in Android Audio doesn't work, when I click on it it takes me to the Bolt Home Screen. I also can...

latest version chevy app

Wow, talk about screwing up a useful piece of software! The new version is slow, very slow. First it updates twice before even allowing me to enter my pin. Then it takes about 40 seconds to update to the car's current condition, but only updating the mileage and charge remaining. Then, if I want add...

Glad it’s working now.


Thanks again. I held the 2 buttons down for 10 seconds and that reset the screen, now everything is working as it should.

Re: Electronics Failure?

Try the radio first. Usually, letting the car charge gives the radio enough time to fully shut down, and that might be enough without rebooting it. Usually, my radio will hang at a black screen when I desperately need heat or A/C, which of course is problematic as these are controlled by the radio....

Great, thanks. I will definitely try that when its done charging..

Electronics Failure?

I turned on the 2017 Bolt this afternoon and suddenly numerous electronic functions became either inoperable or extremely sluggish. the home screen button would take 5 or 10 seconds to revert back to the home screen. The cameras icon was blanked out, even when stopped and the phone function buttons ...

Bolt Mileage

When I bought a Honda Civic Hybrid in 2005, the manufacturer said the car would get up to 50 mpg on the freeway and 45 on city streets. This was a gross inflation of the actual performance, which was about 30 mpg in the city and about 40, max, on the highway. People sued Honda, there was a class-act...

If This Happens To Your Chevy Bolt...

When I turned on the Bolt (2017) this morning, all the buttons on the right side of the steering wheel would not work, I could not check tire pressure. Also, the Lane Keep Assist button on the left side of the steering wheel would not work either. I think it may have had something to do with some ve...

Re: Proxmity Sensor on Rear Bumper

My 2¢: If this is no fault of your own, let the dealer take care of it. If you monkey around with it, and there's a future problem surrounding this that you can't handle, they might be happy to reject a warranty claim. I completely understand wanting to fix minor things that you are capable of doin...
