Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

.. is there a specific department / person you speak with? I'd like to be as prepared as practical. GM EV Concierge. Look for that. Sorry I don't have the number handy. Good luck guys! This will be interesting! Should know later today... Spoke to the tech directly, and saw his document regarding EV...

In the front it’s overall diameter that more the problem than width. The spring perch and the inside fender offer interference. Width? Just add a spacer and roll the fender.

I wonder if a 2014 with the altered suspension for the new battery pack replacement will have the same geometry...

Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

quick update on the Battery replacement status. Still waiting on parts. I talked to GM about doing a warranty buyout instead of the repair, since the repair cost is more than the value of the vehicle. GM seemed open to it but said that I needed to work through the dealer to see if it's something th...

It's nearing time for me at almost 92kMi...

I could see running the pump to purge any lines / passageways, but don't know how to send the command to do this over the OBDII port.


Anyone have a service manual laying around to verify the procedure?

Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

Torque is now reporting mine as 12.9kWh, down from 13.0. I'm REALLY enjoying the car so far. Current trip odometer is around 960mi, and is at 4.5Mi/kWh, even though I live at the top of a hill! What year is your spark and what's its total mileage? I should check torque again and see if my numbers h...

Re: Instrument Cluster Display shuts off with car

Does the dome light come on when it happens?

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

Re: New 2014 owner; looking for info on getting Torque to work.

I already had Torque Pro. Set up the Bolt .csv info, and it seems.... off a bit. Tried to measure charge rate on my Bosch 240V 30A unit today, and it only indicated 8 amps, yet was to be finished quite quickly. I wonder if that's BATTERY current vs. inlet current before the inverter.... I've cobbled...

Re: New 2014 owner; looking for info on getting Torque to work.

OK. I will give that a gander. Tonight's escapades brought me to quite a low state of charge after taking a high-speed highway trip a few cities away, followed by a return trip at even faster speeds before my typical commute home. According to the energy info screen, I used 11.6kWh, and the display ...
