You can hack the temp probe to keep it from happening, but then the on-screen temp in incorrect.
It is claimed it is needed to meet federal defrosting standards, blah, blah,,,
But the heater element it the same as the Spark EV. :?:

And worse,, it never warmed the engine all the way up. It just cycles the engine on and off just enough to provide ~153* coolant. It was a gas burning water heater.

But it was a great Road Trip car. So take that Sparkers... :lol:

Seems like a really strange design to me..... imho.
Does this only happen when you turn on the heater?
Or when it is a certain temp outside?
Is it the older gen volt and/or the new one as well?
