First time I tried charging the Spark was at a Charge point fast charger. It gave an error and a day later my exclamation mark is still on.

Fast and regular charging both work as they should, but the person at OnStar said I have to take it to the dealer to reset.

Relax, let go through 2 or 3 full charges. I'll bet that CEL light goes away on it's own.

Personally, I would take a picture of the screen capturing the image of the mileage and error and take it and the car to the dealer. Even if they do nothing your documentation might be useful if the electrical/charging/whatever system fails later, in or out of warranty. If it were a lease I'd go with what NORTON said.
Keep in mind that Chevys as a group are not known for their reliability.
Cheers, good luck!

Had the Service Vehicle Soon light issue 2 days ago - came on after stopping DCFC using the key fob (somewhere between 60-80% charged). Cleared itself overnight (not plugged, just parked in driveway). Didn't think to pull the codes, but I'm guessing something about interrupting the handshake between the car and charging station (EVgo) throws a code. But then you'd think the SAE Combo manufacturers would have worked that out before rolling out the technology, wouldn't you? :roll:

At the beginning of December last year, I had the "Service Vehicle Soon" [Check Engine Light] go on in my 2015 Spark EV. I could not reset the light through the OBDII port so I took the car to the dealer. The dealer reported there was a problem with the DCFC charge port control module and had to order one. I was told the DCFC would not work until the module was replaced. The dealer also said the 120 / 240 volt charging port would work. Strange thing was, when I got the car back, I immediately drove to my local DCFC. Guess What! The DCFC worked fine and the "Service Vehicle Soon" light was out. 6 weeks later the replacement part arrived and I had it installed. So far, everything has been working fine. However, what I did notice is my average calculated battery capacity had dropped almost 1.5 kWh after I got the car back and it has remained at the lower level - 15.9 kWh - since then. I wonder if the "Service Vehicle Soon" light was really indicating a module in the HV battery was failing or had failed? I have not had any more "Service Vehicle Soon" light episodes since the DCFC charging module was replaced.

EDIT: Regardless, my lease for my 2015 Spark EV 2 LT is up at the end of May. The car will be returned early to my local Chevy Dealer on Tuesday as I will be out of state when the actual lease expiration date is reached. Whoever purchases this car will be getting a very nice vehicle that has had nothing but TLC. Even with the possibility of a dead HV battery module, the car still returns a full-charge GOM value of 90 miles. But, I am not sad to let it go - I still have a 2014 Spark EV 2LT and a 2016 Spark EV 2LT that are both mine to play with.

I would be my suspicion as well. I have very little trust in dealers.

I had the check engine light flash on December 26 last year. I had the day off and the car was 6 months old and under warranty (bought a new 2015 in July 2017 for a song) so I just went right to the dealer. They were able to see that the check engine light was told to turn on, but not WHY it was told that. Light went off after they cleared it. They couldn’t get it to turn on again. Got my car back with a ‘sorry we didn’t do anything’ and the light came on the next day. Took it back for another round, still nothing. Ultimately nothing has changed and the light hasn’t come back on. So, yay?

You did the right thing taking it to the dealer to document it.
