Re: Charging At Home

I would add that the 2022 Bolt EUV is apparently capable of 11.5 kW (48A 240VAC) level 2 charging .. That would require a 60A 240VAC circuit.

Re: Charging/Range

No level 2 charging at home or work and a 146 mile commute? .. It's asking a lot from level 1 charging only. With a little planning and the Plugshare app you should be able to work out a routine using public DCFC or Level 2 chargers .. For most EV drivers never having to go to a gas station again is...

Re: free charging at Electrify America

Thanks for the heads up cwerdna! ..

Went to the new EA site near me and it was indeed free (no app, CC needed) today on Earth Day!
The EA charge rate [36kw] was still pretty slow compared to the free (every day) EVgo site near me [46kw].

Re: Wheel Spacers

I like the idea but if the stock wheel studs needed to be cut I wouldn't do it.

It would probably make the guide lines in the backup camera screen useless as well.

Re: Where is the charge limit coming from (Bolt/Charger/AC ckt) ?

OK .. Charging station and the car are capable of 32A - 7.2kW @ 240V .. Circuit breaker is 50 Amp, 240V .. Have you confirmed that the wires used in that circuit are #6 gauge copper conductors? (as they should be) If they are not .. say #10 or #12 gauge copper conductors the charging station would p...

Re: How do you disengage the cruise control in single pedal L mode?

I use the "cancel" button on the steering wheel more often, but will use either method. I have found that it's easy to reach with my thumb without looking. It is the closest to the outside of the wheel. Pressing the brake pedal also cancels cruise control, but I rarely use that method wit...

Re: Cargo Area Light - 2020 Bolt

Does anyone know if the cargo light "times out" if the liftgate is left open for a period of time? (My old Fiat 500 did that after about 10 minutes.) The 2020 Bolt Owner's Manual does not mention the on/off function for this light. I'm new to the forum, so thanks in advance for any advice...

Re: Tool

What is the tool /wrench under the load floor for? Technically it's called a "Tow Eye" and it will attach - thread into the front bumper after the round plastic plug is removed. It will also attach - thread into the rear bumper again, after removing the square plastic cover. This is cover...
