Re: Software Version Tracking

So if I am reading this correctly Chev did not create any software updates past 2016. Is this correct? I don't know the exact date of the last update, but you're basically correct. Personally, I think it's a little disappointing that they don't do constant updates for years afterwards. Why can't I ...

Re: Acceleration with AC on

Very interesting, quite a lot of information and good points, but I'm not sure I would accept all of your assumptions. or draw the same conclusions. First, at least to a first order approximation, Li-ion batteries put out pretty close to constant voltage over most of their charge range. All of your ...

Does the dome light come on when it happens?

IF so, the driver's side door switch may be intermittent.

Unless you have the dome light turned off. Make sure it's set to "door actuated".

Re: Original Spark EV floor mats available

What color floor mats? Did you have the rubber mats since new or nearly so? Are the mats in "like new" condition? Also, does your Model 3 have AWD? I'm very curious about the regenerative braking. If I understand correctly, all the Teslas can only be driven in "one-pedal" mode. The brake pedal only ...

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: Regenerative Braking

OK, let me ask this another way. Forget about braking. We're just letting our collective foot off the accelerator. What is the mechanism which slows the car in L, that doesn't activate in D? I actually found a pretty good Wiki on the subject … As to what happens in D, I'm not so sure yet... You pos...

Re: No heat in my 2015 Spark EV

OMG, Thanks again. I really must get a service manual. Someone was selling his on the forums, but never replied, probably already sold it. I did test both fuses and they are OK. I'll try a few more things (see if I can find my cheap OBDII scanner), but will probably end up at the dealer anyway.

Re: Spark Owners Manual

Gee, I'm surprised no one has updated this. I found a link to all GM owners manuals (pre-selected to 2015 Spark, but you can change it to anything) Here: https://experience.gm.com/support/vehicle/manuals-guides?compIndex=1&year=2015&make=Chevrolet&model=Spark Selecting the 2015 Spark EV gives this: ...

Re: No heat in my 2015 Spark EV

Wow, thanks. At the risk of missing the obvious, I assume the fuses would be the #4 CHCM Fuse (Coolant Heater Control Module) and the #12 Auxiliary Heater Pump Fuse? They're not explicitly labeled on the schematic. Also, I'm curious; pumps? coolant? I know the Spark uses a resistive heater, but is t...

No heat in my 2015 Spark EV

I did a quick search in the forum and couldn't find anything, but I think the cabin heat has stopped working in my 2015. When I turn up the temperature, once I get near the max, I can hear a change in the sound of the incoming air, suggesting that the air is rerouted at some point, but no heat at al...
