  1. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV Issues And Problems
    I'm on a road trip and have used two public EVSE's in a row (both Chargepoint) and have had similar results. At the first charger a Level 2 rated at 6.6 kW/h I charged at a rate of 3.3 kW/h. I'm now connected to a DC fast charger rated at 62.5 kW/h (I know I won't get above 50, but I wanted to...
  2. Charging and Batteries
    I’ve had a 2023 Bolt for three months. Love it! I know there are lots of questions and responses about charging, but hopefully by this time the 80 vs 100% question has been answered. Here is my question: I currently charge to 80% although all my charging takes place at home using my L2...

    It is -8F outside, +18F in my garage. Car is a 2022 Bolt EUV not recalled for battery replacement. Level 2 charging starts at 10 p.m. Charge starts at 80% heading to 100%. A creaking/crackling sound is heard coming from under the car. When I interrupt the charging, the sound immediately...
  4. Charging and Batteries
    Three weeks ago I got the battery on my 2020 Bolt replaced via the recall. Since then, I have not been able to charge the Bolt to 100% capacity. If I try to set the target charge level to 100%, it goes up but then blinks and drops down to something that looks like about 80%. In addition, the...
  5. 2022+ Chevy Bolt EUV General Discussion
    I just got my Bolt EUV delivered 3 weeks ago. I found a way to get a legal charging outlet very cheaply at my house rather than go through Qmerit. Thought this info could be useful: my charge cable will sit under my porch protected from the rain as I have no garage at the moment. This is far...

    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...
  7. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    The car had been sitting in the sun, so maybe 90 F or so. I have a level 2 Juicebox charger, 32 amp limit, on a 50 amp GFI circuit breaker. Plugged it in to charge and it would just start to charge, then the circuit breaker would trip. This happened multiple times. Put the car in the shade...

    I thought this was the best forum to post about New Mexico's CCS DC Fast Charger infrastructure. To summarize it briefly, Electrify America (EA) has the entire I-10 and I-40 corridors covered throughout the state. EA also has I-25 north of Albuquerque covered. The two current major non-EA...
  9. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    I charged my car a 100%. For instance the car says that the mileage is 372 range... That 372 number does not get reduced after many miles of driving. Also there is a charging port problem in many 2019 Chevy bolts which has yet to be resolved by gm. The charging port actuator actually stays in...
  10. 2022+ Chevy Bolt EUV General Discussion
    I'm getting ready to install a charging station in my garage and I have several questions: 1. What is the maximum amperage the car can take using the supplied level 2 cable if I just install an outlet? 2. If I go with a charging station instead of an outlet, does it need to be smart? It seems to...

    Before you know it, summer will be here and what better time to drive up the Maine coast? Plan your trip very carefully. Hunt down places to charge and check the kW of the available chargers (woefully few are truly fast chargers). Earlier this week, I hunted for a hotel or inn or B&B...
  12. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    Hello All, Chevy replaced my battery and I got it back today. They charged the car to 100% and all seemed good. However, after going on a little trip I plugged into an L2 charger and tried to set a delayed charge. However, the car just wouldn't do it. It wanted to immediately charge no matter...

    I need to overcome 56 ft from my home 240 V 50 amp outlet to my 2018 Chevy Bolt in the driveway Can I safely connect this charger: Amazon.com: Lectron 240V-32 Amp, Level 2 EV Charger, with 21ft Long J1772 Charging Cable & NEMA 14-50 Plug : Automotive to this extension cord: Amazon.com...
  14. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    So I had the battery swapped on my 2017 earlier this week. Everything seemed to be going fine but I needed to charge this morning. Based on other people's reports I knew that I had to re-enable Hill Top Reserve and that was literally the first thing I did before I even left the dealership...
  15. 2017+ Chevy Bolt EV General Discussion Forum
    My '21 Bolt is a year old this month. What's it been like? I love the car, but I hate public charging. It's a pleasure to drive - it's quick, smooth and quiet. In winter the heat is good, in summer the AC is great. Its size is small but just right for my needs. Winter driving is good if...
  16. 2017 - 2022 Bolt EV Battery Fire Recall
    My 2017 is in Virginia where we get temps periodically below 20F/-7C, sometimes briefly much colder. In the past we would just leave the vehicle plugged in all the time when at home in really cold or hot weather, per the manual. Now we're trying to follow the recall guidance. So interim...

    1) If you have hilltop reserve on to limit your max charge to 90%, how does cold weather change the equation? For instance San Francisco is having some cold weather, and the mileage estimate is going down from around 212 to 180. If my charging session is complete in the morning, is the battery...

    Hi all, thank you for letting me join this community. Have you heard of EVCS? They operate here in LA but have locations in Oregon, Washington, and the Bay Area. I just recently got one of their ads and signed up for their unlimited subscription plan and I've been pleasantly surprised by it. I...
