Re: TPM sensor - Which to buy ?

I bought a more expensive version ~2 years ago. Here's a really cheap set: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B014VZFQAS/ref=psdc_2201764011_t2_B00O9H0QIG And then if you are swapping wheelsets seasonally, you'll want your own 'Relearn Tool' : https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B072BK693N/ref=psdc_2201764011_t2_B...

Re: How long does 12v battery last?

...I didn't mention it previously but desulfating an AGM battery is questionable in my mind. You must overcharge the battery for desulfation to happen and then they off gas and boil off water if they are not sealed. ... This is the old school method of lead acid maintenance. This is how golf carts ...

Re: Guessometer acting strange

Hi all, my 2016 Chevy Spark EV died on me ...... Is there a way I can reset this system myself? Your 1st step should be a 'Hard Reboot', which is disconnecting the 12V battery at the Neg. terminal, for a few minutes. If you can: >Measure the 12V battery voltage before reconnecting the neg. cable. >...

Re: Winter tires, wheel sizes, and looking for wheels

Tire Rack claims they know this car. One of their alloy wheel / tire combos with TPMS installed and ready to mount might be a good deal. It looked like cheap alloys were similar to steel wheels. I looked into it a few years ago. I ended up with summer wheels and 195 tires all around. All Seasons, st...

..... i have a feeling that the bolt battery will actually fit.
When you buy a Bolt battery, wouldn't it be cheaper and easier to buy the whole Bolt and drive it the way it is?
Used ones are out there and getting cheaper everyday!

Re: 4+ mile / KWh advice

Slowing the car, and getting the Regen power from that, is exactly the same using L or using the brake pedal in D. GM has Blended Brakes. Not all EV's have that tech. Brand T definitely doesn't.... You should put a dollar/penny amount on chasing a higher mi/kWh number. Same with swapping your curren...
