    Since this thread is old I'll start anew. I had my 2019 battery replaced June 20th 2022, and earlier this month (August 2022) received the High Voltage Charging System service message. Coolant reservoir was empty. Drove it to the dealer (228 miles). [Then went on a spectacular EV road trip...

    Attached is a photo of the instrument display of our 2019 Chevy Bolt. At the time that Chevrolet replaced the battery under its recall, the vehicle had been driven 28,500 miles. The car now has been driven 2,150 miles on the new battery pack, so has had numerous discharge/recharge cycles. The...
  3. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    TLDR: I tried buying a used bolt and for some reason, two dealerships tried ordering a battery and now neither dealership can get the battery so I'm waiting for my car with little idea on when I may get it. This is a bit of a doozy so buckle up. I made a down payment for a used 2017 premier at...
  4. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    A few months ago, I placed a deposit on a used 2017 Bolt from a Chevrolet dealership. I knew I wouldn't be able to take delivery of the car until the battery was replaced. However, the car has been sitting in the 881 "open" group for some time now, but the dealer still says they can't order a...
  5. 2022+ Chevy Bolt EUV General Discussion
    I have been a member only a short time, but am impressed with this forum. Looked for data on this topic, but did not find any so I thought I would post. I could really use some help or feedback on my November Swap EUV delivering strange range. When I picked up the car, it had 3 miles on it...
  6. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    I haven't posted here in awhile, so I thought I would do a little update as I recently had my battery replaced. I had some issues shortly after I purchased this car used back in July of 2020 - I had major range anxiety and turns out I had at least one bad cell, necessitating a battery module...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...

  18. 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...
  19. 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...
  20. 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...
