Re: Differences between 14/15/16 model years - ASIDES from battery?

Are you sure about the back-up camera? It's not listed in the sales brochures. Maybe in a different country.

2016 was a new model for the gas Spark, the '16 EV was a carryover. That's why it doesn't have Carplay or Android Auto.

Re: Brake fluid replacement? At 30K mi?! Special procedure?

Pop the hood, close the doors and put the remote in the house so the car can't sense it. Wait about a half an hour, so the brake pump doesn't build up pressure in the lines. I use a hand vacuum pump with a reservoir attached to it to pull the fluid through each caliper and keep an eye on the fluid l...

Re: CHRASH

I would say that the car has to be completely repaired and that includes what is called the SDM. That is the module that controls what goes on in a crash. It has to be programmed to the car.

Re: Original Spark EV floor mats available

The model 3 is long range - we plan on keeping it long term and felt maximizing range at outset would come in handy, especially after living with the Spark EVs for several years. I’m not sure about Tesla braking. Spark config with threshold setting for friction brakes is very good, however, Spark E...

Re: No heat in my 2015 Spark EV

If the heater system under the hood is working and the blower motor operates at all speeds, it could be the temperature door actuator under the dash. If the door is in the cold position and doesn't move to the heat position, you won't get any heat, even though everything else is working. I didn't r...

Re: Spark EV getting gas

I still make the occasional run for gas with my little one gallon container. My run is less than a mile, though. My snow blower and the power washer are still gassers, but the rest are electric, including my 40 year old lawn mower.

Re: No heat in my 2015 Spark EV

Yep, the resistance heater heats up the coolant that is then circulated through the heater core by an electric pump. There are three separate coolant circuits, one for the battery, one for the electronics and the third for interior heat.
