I noticed when my Bolt is plugged into my level 2 charger and battery cooling fan turns on high , I get a notice that my car is not charging. Any others noticed this? Does anyone know if this is the battery management stopping charging momentarily? It might be related to outside temps or something.

If it starts circulating the battery coolant when it gets too hot during charging, it stands to reason that it would defer further charging until the temperature is brought down. However, I have never seen this with Level 2 charging, only with DCFC. I nearly always Level 2 charge in my air-conditioned garage. I'll have to go to one of the nearby, outside, free Level 2 stations on a hot day this week and see if it temporarily halts charging while it is battery cooling. Always learning...

On L2 charging, my 2020 only does battery conditioning after the charge is complete, so I get a charge complete notification as conditioning starts.
