Re: Check Engine Light Comes and Goes

Cindy, when you purchased your Volt it came with Onstar. The 2011 came with 5 years of Onstar and from 2012 forward, 3 years. As Patrick said, when the check engine light comes on just press the Onstar button and let them know you would like the code/codes associated with your check engine light. If...

Re: Windshield cracks

I purchased my Volt in April 2012 and have not had an issue. The roads in SE Michigan are terrible so there's a lot of potential for stones hitting the windshield. We also contend with salt in the winter which may be even worse. While I haven't searched the other message board for cracks in the wind...

If only two lights are on you are charging at 8 amps, not 12 amps. If there are burn marks on the outlet I would definitely have it checked by an electrician. See the attached link for some very useful tips on charging the Volt.

Re: pre-conditioning and intelligent gas generator re-chargi

The "Hold" option is not available on the 2012 as it first became available on the 2013 Volt. The closest thing to Hold on the 2012 is Mountain Mode which switches to the ICE when there are approximately 15 miles remaining on the charge.

Re: tomorrow

Congrats on your new Volt wolf3510! I've had mine a little over 18 months and I absolutely love this car. I'm just under 12,000 miles and have used only 48 gallons of gas. If it weren't for taking a few "extended range" trips my gas useage would be much lower. You should check into getting...

Re: Turning off POWER at 55 mph in the dark!

There's nothing to fix. The Volt does warn you after you hit the power button the first time.

Re: Problem with Blink Charger?

I do not have a blink charger so I cannot answer your question. I did copy a link from another forum that will give you an idea of problems other Blink owner's are having. http://gm-volt.com/forum/showthread.php?13947-On-Going-Problems-with-Blink-240-Volt-Chargers&highlight=blink+charger+blank+s...

Re: Turning off POWER at 55 mph in the dark!

MrS.

If the vehicle must be restarted while it is still moving, move the shift lever to N (Neutral) and press the POWER O button twice without pressing the brake pedal. The propulsion system will not restart in any other position.

Hope this helps.

Re: Volt in Florida......Air conditioning

I live in Michigan and bought my Volt this past April and the a/c was more than capable in keeping me cool during the dog days of summer. On another note; I've got 5200 miles on my Volt and have only used 6.8 gallons of gas. I'm not quite as efficient as Dave C2561 but I'm doing pretty good. Tyreabu...
