  1. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    Apologies if this is a redundant post. I've been paying little attention to the recall mostly because we are 2 years into a 3 year lease on our 2020, and I figured a resolution in one form or another is coming shortly. But we've just received the letter suggesting a software update, so I started...
  2. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    It's a 2017, appointment for new battery replacement is today, dropped it off last night and got a call this morning that the procedure has changed and in addition to having the SOC <90% and no charge for 24hrs (which I followed) the dealer called and said they have to run through a process that...
  3. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    This may seem silly, but I am a little confused by all the changing guidelines coming from GM: I own a 2020 Bolt. No software updates or battery availble yet. I'm flying out for a weeklong trip somewhere warm this January to escape the frozen northeast. My mother's atached garage is availble to...
  4. 2017+ Chevy Bolt News
    I rec'd a notice from GM about a month ago that they were ready to replace the battery in my 2019 Bolt. After replacement, I called back to see what the warranty coverage is with the new battery. The dealer looked up my Bolt by VIN number and said that the mileage had been extended by 80K to...
  5. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV Recalls
    I had mine battery replacement done on Monday and although it was great to have over 300 miles on a full charge I have noticed that the battery drains much faster now than it did before. Also a very strange thing happened today; I was down to 211 miles when I parked and did some shopping. When I...
  6. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    I just reached out to my dealer about the Mid-Nov software upgrade. I asked my salesman as he is a bolt owner too. He said he has heard nothing on new software but they have changed out 6 batteries already! That was good news to hear. I wanted to try and schedule a trip to get my winter wheels I...
  7. Charging and Batteries
    I have a Bolt Premiere built 3/21 and purchased 5/5/21. It has 10K miles on it, mostly long distance road trips and many DCFC charging sessions. So far it has been driven and parked in warm/hot weather in the South. I don't think there is anything wrong with the car but I am mystified by the...
  8. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    I'm going to be upfront and admit I love my Bolt despite it's flaws and the recall. When something bad happens, I try to have some fun with it. To that end, yesterday I parked next to a coworker and told him: "Don't worry that I parked next to you, my car only spontaneously combusts after...
  9. Charging and Batteries
    We have two 2021 Bolts, leased April and May 2021. In the last week, both have this alert: The Lithium-Ion Battery is not performing as expected. An issue has been detected in the Hybrid Battery System which is a high voltage battery used to propel your vehicle. Anyone else getting this...
  10. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV Issues And Problems
    2017 Bolt Premier. "Service engine soon" light came on so took it to the dealer. Turned out to be a failed high voltage battery disconnect relay which, according to the repair tech, "prevents the high voltage current from flowing the wrong direction." Apparently this is both so important and so...

  12. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV Issues And Problems
    First, last week a Transmission Control Module error code came on (according to my OPD reader). I immediately tried to schedule a service call, but because there are so few certified Bolt mechanics, my appointment is not until Thursday. I tried four different dealerships, and ended up with the...
  13. 2017+ Chevy Bolt News
    Hello! I got an offer from vroom on my 2017 Premier which I just bought used 5 months ago. The offer is about the same amount I paid for the car originally. I also initiated a call with the GM concierge line. They took my vehicle info and Initiated a buyback or swap option. Should I sell it...
  14. Charging and Batteries
    I felt like seeing how many kWh I could use before absolutely needing to charge. here are the results: I ended up traveling 256.2 miles and used 61.8 kWh. Using an EngineLink I could see I had (rounding) 2 percent battery life left. Assuming I started with 66 kWh, useable. ( I bought the car...
  15. 2017+ Chevy Bolt News
    Is there any more news about the solution on this? The last I heard from GM was “April” which is just about over. Are they going to extend the date yet again (I wonder)?

    Any smoke signals over the horizon? I can't see anything from here.
  17. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    I am super excited to have purchased a used 2017 bolt EV with 70k miles on it, however I am a bit concerned now that I have been able to charge it fully. The range is currently 158 mi at a 95% charge. It is a nice 60 degrees Fahrenheit outside and all tires are at 42 psi. It will not charge...

  19. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV Recalls
    Has anyone had theirs full battery pack replaced? My dealer is telling me that they will be replacing mine. I clarified if they were replacing a module or the full pack, and he responded with "full pack" If that is true, has anyone in this forum had theirs replaced on 2017 Bolt? If so, how...
  20. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Buybacks
    Just called the concierge line and requested details about the buyback program. The rep actually mentioned the option and offered to take down my information without being prompted, which was a nice surprise. I plan to post pseudo-real time updates here to track the process and my thoughts along...
