Re: Spark EV 2016 2LT - Flashing High Beams Randomly at Nigh

Looks like this happens reliably during the day, if I force the headlight selector to the "headlights on" position, rather than "auto" or "parking lights". So that's good. Basically, if the headlights are on (not DRL), then this issue tends to occur. So at least it will not be difficult for them to ...

Re: Spark EV 2016 2LT - Flashing High Beams Randomly at Nigh

... I'm taking the car to the dealer for the recall service on the battery software to prevent "sudden bricking" of the vehicle soon, ... Never heard of the headlight problem before. Good Luck. Sounds like a tricky problem to trouble shoot if it doesn't happen consistently. And I never heard of the...

Spark EV 2016 2LT - Flashing High Beams Randomly at Night

Hi, a couple months ago, my high beams started flashing randomly at night.

It comes ...

Re: Sporadic Loud Bluetooth Noises on Recipient Caller's Sid

By the way, the noise at low speed that you hear is the noisemaker - it's a safety device to make sure pedestrians hear you coming. I think it turns off above a certain speed, when the tires are making enough noise to notify pedestrians of your presence. I don't think the noisemaker is correlated wi...

Re: Sporadic Loud Bluetooth Noises on Recipient Caller's Sid

My wife and I both have 2016 Spark EVs. My car does NOT have this issue, but hers does. It is exactly the same thing you describe - the pitch of the rocket launch goes up and down, and eventually if you wait long enough, the audio nearly completely cuts out (usually the caller will terminate the cal...
