  1. 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...

  3. 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...

    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...

    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)?

    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...

  10. 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...
  11. 2017 - 2019 Bolt EV Fire Recall and 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...

    Hi all - My husband bought a used 2017 Chevy Bolt the other day and when we picked it up today, we asked them to have it fully charged. I got in and the GOM (Guess-o-meter) said 78 miles. We kinda freaked out. When he bought it, they told him that it wasn’t fully charged and that number would go...

    I bought a new 2020 Bolt last weekend, and I've since noticed that every time I drive the car, I get a little shock when I open the door to exit and when I close the door. This happens every time I leave the car, even when I wear cotton. Has not been that cold here in Southern California. I have...

    I experienced something unusual and like to know if anyone else is experiencing the same thing. Background: I had always used the Hilltop Reserve (HTR) when charging my 2017 Bolt and got 190 miles out of each charge every time. I had also always got 4.1 miles driving out of each kWh. What's...
  15. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    Hi All, we were excited to get our first EV but unfortunately in our first day discovered that a full charge displayed a range of 139mi. This seems well below expected even with the battery recall applied with 10% reduced charge. Is this expected? Considering returning car to investigate as...
  16. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    I'm new to the forum & really appreciate all the well-informed posts, especially about calculating range and battery issues. I'm off-grid with a new solar system, so it's (finally!) time for an EV! I'm comparing the 2020 LTD with a $19k one-owner 2017 premier with 31,000 miles (pics of range...
  17. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV Recalls
    I've been in conversation with GM regarding the recent battery recall and they have offered to replace or repurchase my leased 2019 Chevy Bolt with 12,xxx miles.

    I purchased my 2017 Bolt in August of 2019. It now has 50K miles and I drive about 6K miles per year. I do not know the maintenance history, if any. Now I am trying to figure out if I have a "first design battery" or a "second design battery". According to my VIN # it appears I have a first...

    Link to Coursera course I am taking this Coursera course and Week 2 covers everything about Lithium Ion batteries how they are built, assembled, and designed. It's pretty great stuff and the professor provides information on what Tesla uses. It got my curious on what the Bolt uses. For...
