Car has been in for service on 2 occasions for 'Check Car' light -
What were the 2 'Check Car' lights for when you took it to the dealer?
You know you can call Onstar and get them to read you the code number.
If the light came on after a charge session it most likely was a glitch in the grid power while it was charging.
That light clears itself after 2 or 3 charge cycles to 100%.
Especially in the spring with wind and thunderstorms the grid can have a small momentary dips in voltage and that will set this 'Soft Code' check light.
I ignore the light until after a few charge cycles. (Never had a 'Hard Code' that does not clear itself.)
Used '14 2LT w/ DCFC. +82K miles.
Mostly free charging! Only one LONG visit to the shop....
GM needs Modern Troubleshooting tools for Modern EV's.
3 step Trouble Tree, 1st try car died again, 2nd try not covered / cost $800. 3rd try fixed the problem.
