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.

Re: No heat in my 2015 Spark EV

Turn on the settings for heat, then pop the hood. Facing the car, the coolant reservoir for the heater is all the way to your right. If the heat is running, you should hear the pump and see the coolant moving in the reservoir. Now, the coolant heater is the black box, with a warning sticker on the t...

Re: 12 volt battery life ?

I had to change the 12V because the decided to not move in D. Put in a new Delco AGM and it was like nothing happened.

Re: low speed noisemaker location

IIRC, you can access the speaker through the LF wheelhousing.

Re: Low Range Used 2015

After 2 1/2 years of ownership, I don't get overly concerned about things like that simply for the fact that the Spark is doing what I expected of it. I can commute with it and I can do all of my local running around with it. :D
