Re: Programming a new Remote Keyless Entry Fob?

I purchased a 2016 Spark LT1 2 weeks ago from a Seattle Chevy dealer and I needed a 2nd key fob made. The parts department ordered it and it came in a week. They cut the key fine but when they tried to program the fob the car wouldn’t go into programming so they had to connect the car to their comp...

Re: Help programming RKE transmitter for 2016

Can I get a super basic answer on a piece of this puzzle? If I acquire a Chevy key that has just those two buttons (or those two plus trunk/hatchback icon...or those two plus the red light icon) - will that work? Ian Probably slightly better than snowballs chance in hell odds. How about countering,...

Re: Torque Pro walkthrough video.

Are the PIDs universal between OBD scanners and the apps? Or are they specific to each? That is, I found an IOS app and OBD reader that are compatible and that allows importing custom PIDs. Did you make adjustments for the Spark EV vs what they had by default in the Bolt forum? It's my understandin...

The manual instructions didn't work for me either BTW.
Good to know. I posted a thread somewhere on this forum that explained why programming is seemingly not possible due to hardware limitations.

Re: Torque Pro walkthrough video.

No interest in buying an android device for this one limited use case. Too bad. If someone designs something that works for the Bolt (or possibly future GM EV), it will likely work with the Spark. In my configuration, the PID for battery capacity works fine for the Spark, but doesn't read right for...

Re: Help programming RKE transmitter for 2016

...so I bought new batteries and replaced each fob’s battery a few weeks ago. One of them kept working for sure, but we don’t use both remotes very often. So I don’t know when the other fob stopped working, but I know neither fob works now, as a remote. I like asking stupid questions, so here we go...

Re: Torque Pro walkthrough video.

will this work for iPhone? Don't own any android devices. Android devices can be had pretty darn cheap new or used. Not only does it function as a gauge display (which would probably be much more expensive as a stand alone device), it can also make phone calls :) Also good to have a back up phone.

Re: New Electrify America stations

Mighty frustrating to say the least! I have had 1 successful charging session in 7 attempts at two different locations. I will retry with mine when Charlotte, NC goes online. My one and only Spark visit summary (Fincastle, VA/Brugh's Mill Country Store): tried one dispenser, didn't work; tried next...

Re: New Electrify America stations

Total cost was $4.43! That's $0.63 per kWh!! At 5.3 mi / kWh, my cost per mile is about $0.12. An ICE getting 25 mpg with gasoline costing $3.00 per gallon would cost..... you guessed it..... $0.12 per mile. Is an EV worth it? Sad and true. It's even costlier with any other EV, being that the Spark...

Re: New Electrify America stations

My Spark EV would not charge at the Sutherlin, Oregon EA station,.... Was this just an unusual case ? Do Spark EVs usually accept the charge from the CCS chargers at ElectrifyAmerica stations ? My one and only charging session with my Spark, at an EA station (second one opened, Fincastle,VA), was v...
