Bolt doesn't acknowledge when fully charged

Weird thing started happening. About a month ago I did the recall which has limited the battery to 95% as expected. When it hit that point, the charging light would go solid, it would no longer estimate time to complete charging, and the myChevrolet app would show it had completed charging. The next...

Re: myChevrolet status update

For anyone looking for this in the future, it appears to just have something to do with the way the app connects to the car when it's Bluetooth only. I have to give the car some command before it updates the status. Guessing it has to "wake up." The whole locked/unlocked thing is a red her...

Re: Aftermarket DC fast charge options

So maybe I wasn’t clear but this is a used 2017 (hence the word new in quotes). I bought it from a Volkswagen dealership’s preowned lot, so I can’t and don’t fault them at all for not knowing. It had been on the lot for 3 days and I got lucky because those things do not last around here. I’m more ma...

Re: Aftermarket DC fast charge options

It mostly just seems crazy to me they didn’t even think to make it an after market option. I’d probably pay upwards $1500 to add it. I get it’s a very different charging system, but without being cliche we have the technology.

myChevrolet status update

On my "new" 2017 Bolt I've found that the myChevrolet app will only update the car's charging status if the car is unlocked. At first I thought there was a problem since it was perpetually at 15% charge, but as soon as I unlocked the car to look on the dash it jumped up to 43%. After more ...

Aftermarket DC fast charge options

Ok so I know this is a longshot, but previous answers to this question are several years old and I'm hoping things might have changed. I just got a 2017 Bolt that popped up in a nearby dealership. It's in great condition and I'm loving it. Except there's one problem: once I got home I realized it di...
