Re: Torque pro battery capacity guess...

My 2015 read 14.8 kwh with 28,400 miles on it today. I have to go back to the thread I originally posted in...I think it was 16.1kwh in july 2018 with around 20k miles. Nothing I'm concerned about if all that is accurate with daily charges all week over the last year. I don't see an issue with any y...

Re: Steering column key slot cover came off - Should I buy i

They likely had if off because that is where you put the key fob when the battery in the fob goes dead. I think it is also where the key fob goes when programming a new fob. As long as you don't have to drive the car with the fob in the dummy ignition, it should be fine.

Re: 12,094 vs 20,709 battery replacement??

I did a very quick search (20 second search) and the first link I got put the replacement price of the 2015-2016 traction battery at about $5k. That's a price I'd consider paying to get another 100K+ EV miles. https://parts.ganleygm.com/p/Chevrolet_2015_Spark-EV/Battery-tray-Drive-Motor-Battery-Pac...

Re: Check Engine Light - Code P0713

The next time the check engine light comes on the car goes in for a fix. After looking at the repair procedure for changing the trans oil temp sensor, would likely be a good idea to take it in. Sensor appears to live in the oil pan, so only way is to remove the pan and of course the fluid, but fill...

Re: LED lights ?

(I see chitty aftermarket LED headlights all the time...) If you can,, post a picture of the Low Beam cutoff pattern while parked about 20 ft. from a light colored wall. I think you'll see these bulbs act like flood lights with a lot of light spilling above the cutoff line. Look at how you light up...

Re: Check Engine Light - Code P0713

I think the filter is not easily replaceable. It is in the case and the drive unit would need to be split. That's how it is on the Volt. Did you see the thread about 'discolored ATF. Don't change it'. It was some kind of TSB. I'll be posting the oil analysis of the old fluid when I do it. Only way ...
