Charging not possible?

1151 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  brulaz
Got into my Bolt this morning and the screen behind the wheel in big red letters said that charging
was not possible (can't remember the exact words). Pressing the on button resulted in a normal startup and
trip. At home I plugged in power and the car is now charging normally. Anyone know what happened and if there is
anything to worry about?

What he said ^^^^.

A weak and/or failing 12V Auxiliary Battery is the bane of EVs. It's been the cause of the vast majority (90%+?) of odd behaviors in the more than half-dozen EVs I've driven since 1997. Hooking up a high-quality, multi-stage battery tender/charger (that's AGM compatible) periodically, greatly reduces said behavior.
