Mine just started tapping when the door is opened (2018 LT). I am waiting for the battery fix before I take it in, hopefully the software will be available for the ibooster too, warranty ends in July.
So I recently noticed that my car was making a clicking sound when I opened the doors. No, it's not the lock. It's not the shift lockout. It makes a series of clicks up under the dash. When I first noticed it, I posted a video where you could hear it and a helpful poster (on FB) thought it might be one of the three HVAC actuators. For the record, it might click 5-6 times, but sometimes it goes 20-30 before stopping.
I took it over to my local dealer and they told me it was actually the 'brake actuator'. When describing the symptoms to them originally, I had only noticed that morning that the clicks always stopped when you put your foot on the brake. The service guy told me that GM was aware of the issue with the brake actuator and no solution was yet available. According to the service guy, this is harmless. I never consider an issue with the brakes 'harmless'. If the actuator is rotating needlessly or whatever it controls is slamming against the stops repeatedly, this will eventually lead to a failure of some sort -- again, this is the ABS brake system so is that failure catastrophic?
Does anyone else notice a clicking sound in or under the dash when you enter your Bolt (even from passenger side, or rear hatch, with key fob)? Did GM diagnose your issue? Did they provide a solution? The service guy mentioned a bulletin on it but did not give me a number or other identifying information so I could track it. So I don't really have a way to track GM's progress on a solution.
Anyone else have a Bolt that talks to them when they open the doors or hatch? Thanks in advance
They are working around the clock to solve this problem. Oh...wait, that's the fire patch.The clicking started in my 2018 Bolt about two months ago. I’ve taken it for service and again today I was told that this is a common problem and that General Motors is working on software to solve it
The Bolt makes all sorts of noises, at all sorts of times. There are dozens of relays connecting, and disconnecting dozens of systems, controlled by dozens of computers. We can say for sure it isn't the radio being turned off.I am hearing a clicking sound on my new 2020 but only when i turn off the car and get out. Just two clicks is all i hear.
We have had our Bolt for 45 months. It makes the random click, or clunk now and then. Unless it becomes constant, and repeatable, they aren't going to find it anyway. If it is the i-Boost, it will get worse. It is not a safety hazard, and eventually they will offer the software fix.It never made any before the last 2 days.
