I’ve had my 2017 for a month and a half with no problems until this week with the Bolt EV screen freezing up. I do not normally plug in my phone and I don’t quickly put it into drive so I don’t believe that had anything to do with it for me, besides the fact that the second time it happened I wasn’t even going anywhere (I take my lunch at work in my car)
The first time about 7 minutes into my drive it popped on and I could use everything, but the second time when I was staying put my main concern was that I could not turn on the AC and it was hot! Georgia weather is so random so in the morning on the way into work all I need is fresh air coming in from outside, but at lunch I definitely need the AC on and since it wasn’t giving me anything but the Bolt EV logo I could not press the recirculate or AC buttons to turn it on. It was very frustrating! I opened all the windows and remembered the buttons to reboot it but it made no difference.
Yes,I should have gotten out and walked away but I only have so much time for lunch dammit so I didn’t do it. Finally about 10 minutes into it the screen kind of flashed, a couple different times and came up. Right at first I still couldn’t turn the AC on but I was able to eventually.
I am really hoping this doesn’t turn into a thing because it was very uncomfortable there for a while not being able to turn the AC on while sitting in the car. I guess I will have to remember to turn on those two things just before getting out in the morning in case it happens again.
