Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

I think they changed the drive ratios in order to compensate for 100 less lb-ft of torque. I Recall hearing the LG cells couldn't take the punishment. I DO enjoy the zippiness! With the lower final drive, does that mean the speed limiter is a lower value? Do you know where you heard that? I was hav...

[/quote] The 2014 has a 3.17 final drive and the 2015-16 has a 3.87 final drive, so that's the main difference.

Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

https://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/news/gm-confirms-spark-ev-battery-replacements-plans-to-make-packs-for-years/ar-AAWGqHN?ocid=uxbndlbing Thanks for sharing. I DO wonder, though... If my A123 pack is replaced with the LG Chem pack, will they limit the torque output like they did on the 2015/2016 mode...

What a bummer. TO top if off, my capacity went * UP * the other day! Looks like it'll be closer than I thought.


I'm hoping someone will make a Tesla or BYD cell pack replacement for us to keep these lil' efficient fellas on the road!

Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

On Facebook, someone brought up that the Spark battery has been discontinued and Chevy will be offering buybacks. I was at the Chevy dealer the other day, picking up a part for the Bolt and I happened to ask about the Spark battery. It seems that all the part numbers and substitutions are listed as...

Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

UPDATE from chevy ev concierge. I've had a couple calls, and one regurgitated the same boilerplate, but I explained I want someone to actually run the test on capacity, and they're supposed to be calling again soon to see what they can do... Wish I could find my Kill-a-Watt, and just run the batter...

Re: Is there a 2500 track limit on USB storage?

OK, this is completely a guess, but if you apportion the tracks, in a few different folders, will that solve the problem? I have 'em in several folders, with three at the root of the drive. For kicks, I renamed the folders with 1_, 2_, and 3_ leading headers in their names. Whichever has 1 displays...

I am curious - where do you get the vehicle's current Ah value? I do not see it listed in the PIDs for TorquePro.

Lower-right gauge here on my screen w/ Bolt PIDs

Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

I use Torque Pro to read mine.


I figured the kWh capacity being so low would be what triggered it.
Wonder why it doesn't match the AH reading... One would think they'd track rather closely...
