Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

If you have access to TorquePro, you can display the battery capacity on your phone. I use this value to track and plot the HV battery degradation for my 2014 and 2016 Spark EVs. My guess is that the value displayed by TorquePro is fairly accurate. As for GM. I called, got a case number and was tol...

Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

Ok so GM corporate said I need to figure it out with the dealership. I'm out of town for the next couple weeks but once I get back I'll have to go argue with them. I'm pretty disappointed with GM and the dealership. I don't think it's unresinable to want to know the battery capacity number, especial...

Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

Did they say how much of the $700 was parts and how much was labor? If there are any independent EV mechanics in your area, they might be able to do it cheaper. Also if the pump is 12v maybe any shop could do it, if it's 400v then it's gonna need someone who knows how to do high voltage work. On ICE...

Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

What is the address to which you are filing your complaint with GM? It is costing me $700 to have the transmission fluid temperature sensor replaced and I think this should be covered by the powertrain warranty. I just called their customer assistance number. 18002221020 After the first call they t...

Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

Let me know how it goes for you. I'm interested to know if this is just an issue with the dealers in my area if it's a Chevy thing. I discovered I have dashcam video of the whole "service" they performed and all they did was scan the codes. However, they put on the work order they did a "Multi-point...

Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

Ya I think all they did was look for error codes. But there were no errors, as I already knew. I agree, I figured the test the manual was talking about would involve charging and discharging the battery to measure its capacity. I just don't know how to get them to do the real test. I've tried 2 deal...

Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

Hello, I recently bought a 2014 Spark EV with ~62K miles. It's my first EV and I love it, the only issue is I live in Las Vegas so my range is less than ideal since so much energy is used to keep the battery and me cool. Since I was having range issues, I decided to calculate the battery capacity. I...
