Re: Battery too low to fast charge?

Got a little too close for comfort yesterday. Arrived at the intended DCFC with the battery gauge displaying "Low," Having only been into the single digits on the GOM a couple times, curious to hear more about this. At what point does limp mode kick in (and how slow is it)? Did your GOM go to “LOW”...

Re: Battery too low to fast charge?

The Spark might be extra sensitive I’d love to know more about this. I’ve only public charged twice so far. One was at an EVgo dcfc. Following the written directions wasn’t working, so I called them for live support. The rep was very helpful and patient, and seemed to know that making the connectio...

Re: Chevy makes bigger replacement side mirrors

I got the oval mirrors from eBay and connected them to my car. Cool! New? Used? Are they painted? May I ask how much you paid? I have to assume that the blinker and heater wires just aren’t there, and need to be run (from the fuse box, or ?). In my case, I would probably try to hire someone who kno...

Re: So it's time for another car...

Kind of makes me wonder if powering off the EVSE first (unplug from wall first) would defeat the alarm. Wouldn't be hard to test and answer my own question, but... If power is suddenly disconnected (and the alarm feature enabled) the alarm will sound. The chances of noticing it right away when plug...

Re: To anyone who has run a 195/55r15 tire up front.

I believe it should be quite possible to fit those up front (and feel I remember someone did them on the stock wheels?). Once my fronts are done (new ones came with the car a couple mos ago), I'm hoping to get new wheels and run 205/50-15 all around. As far as efficiency, I'm guessing the model of t...

Re: Where do we all live? Sparks are dispersing.

small chirps Said no Ecopia tire ever. (More like little sneezes if you're lucky.) I know many have upgraded. But has anyone posted their 0-60's with them? Have to think with any traction, breaking into the 6's becomes quite feasible. Or are we really that much slower than a Bolt? (And then of cour...

Re: Need info from techies & midwest Spark owners

Have you been in a Midwest Ice Storm? :shock: Couple years in Madison. What I learned (if we're gonna do this threadjack right): 1) Pond hockey rules. And on a clear morning, you can be quite comfortable out in 20 degrees in just a t-shirt. (Until the wind comes up.) 2) No summer day is sunny and c...

Re: Need info from techies & midwest Spark owners

Oh, and here's something all of us snow and ice dwellers need: A piece of vinyl-like material, with magnetic strips around the top and sides, to cover the charge port and cord handle. There have been times I had to karate chop through the ice to release the cord button. Maybe one of the styrofoam w...

Re: Snowboard fit?

Well, I don’t have a Canadian tape measure, but according to my Chinese one, it should just fit diagonally with the back seats down, and the front seat scooted up a bit. If it’s two 6+ footers in the front, may be a squeeze. Alternatively, putting the right (60%) rear seat down, you’d be able to run...

Re: Chevy makes bigger replacement side mirrors

Having read the 15 pages of Backup Camera thread (RIP poor solder!), I’m surprised this upgrade isn’t more popular (let alone the OP being so disparaged). As the season has changed, I quickly realized how much I’m missing side mirrors that are heated. Having them larger and with turn signals seem li...
