Re: Overcharging?

It is true the battery is NEVER fully charged OR discharged. It basically only uses the middle range to prolong battery life. It only uses about 65%, I am not sure of the exact range but for example it may only charge to 80% capacity and discharge to 15% remaining before the engine starts, which is ...

Re: Overcharging?

No, your car will NOT overcharge, but the regeneration will be wasted. Ideally, if you immediately start your trip going downhill, the best option is to stop charging your car before it is fully charged. You would have to experiment to get the best time to unplug.

Re: gaz-engine consumption

You need to look up something called ERDTT, short for Engine running due to temperature. I know at a certain temperature the gas engine will run to warm the main battery. This has nothing to do with what your climate control is set at. This could be what you are experiencing???? I am not at all fami...

Re: KW to charge not cost

My 2011 has a 16 kwh battery of which only 10.3 is usable. The Volt only uses about 65% of battery capacity to ensure longevity. On the myvolt.com site, it says I am using about 12kwh to charge. I am lucky that my electricity charge during off peak hours is only 7 cents per kwh which equates to 84 c...

Re: Adative Cruse Control

I do not believe you can tell if it has ACC just from the VIN. You will need to find a Premier VOLT that has BOTH Driver confidence package 1 AND 2. But that does not mean it has the ACC feature, but it must meet all three above requirements to even possibly have that option. I know that really does...

Re: Code UO16B - what to do

Did you see the response over on your post at gm-volt.com? The guy asked if you had anything plugged in the OBD port, if so remove that. I found that to be very interesting. Just a few days ago I plugged in one of those bluetooth OBD devices to monitor with mygreenvolt app. I parked my car in the ga...

Re: Code UO16B - what to do

Here is something I found: when a U-code names a module. That U-code also doesn’t necessarily mean that the non-communicative module is defective – just that it isn’t talking. It could have lost power, ground or a communication line, and we’ve even heard of a U-code traced to a poor battery ground f...

Re: Backup Camera not working

let me know if you get it working. I would "jiggle" the camera again if it's not working, see if it might be a connection problem. Curious to find out if you solve it.

Re: Backup Camera not working

try this link:

Seems like with some people that have had this problem, it fixed itself. Also one mentioned to push in on the camera lens itself, might be a loose connection
