https://my.chevrolet.com/content/dam/gmownercenter/gmna/dynamic/manuals/2017/Chevrolet/BOLT%20EV/Owner's%20Manual.pdfI want to set the exact time the charger engages and ends.. Is that possible and how?
You edit the electricity rate to set peak vs. off peak rates - the you can also set the car to only allow off peak charging - and set early finish - which effectively means it will start exactly at the time off peak rates start.Help! Manual is very "fuzzy" on setting the delay charge until the electric rates are lower (9:00 pm for me)
I can't seem to get that screen that let's me set those times. Please walk me thru it. I read and re-read pages 124 to 128
I set the OFF PEAK time to start at midnight. (end at 5;00AM) and to charge on OFF PEAK only winter rate. Anyway, when I plugged it in today at 2;00pm, it started charging... help!Sorry, more around page 124. You can't specifically set a start time(other than immediately) but you can set the car not to start charging until a set time with the electric rate schedule settings. You would go in and set the car only to charge in the low rate time frame and then you would tell the car when that is. Sort of a round about way of doing it. Why not just set a time of departure?
Okay, now you have the times set up but the car is still set to charge immediately. Just go to your charge settings and set it to delayed charge.I set the OFF PEAK time to start at midnight. (end at 5;00AM) and to charge on OFF PEAK only winter rate. Anyway, when I plugged it in today at 2;00pm, it started charging... help!
Welcome to the forum. Sorry, can't help with the settings as the electricity in our area is the same all 24 hours and have never messed with the Bolt's settings since acquiring it in 2017.Just got the Bolt home today (built in April).
We had a LEAF before, and where we are, the electricity is way less between 0100 - 0500.
In messing with the menu just now, I could set a start time, but the duration was fixed, so when I set 0100 start, the end time was fixed at 1100, and could not use the same command sequence to change it.
If set the end time, the same thing happens on the other side, the start time moves to 1900.
