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...

Is there a 2500 track limit on USB storage?

I spent hours last night ripping and populating a 32GB thumbdrive, only to discover it seems there's a 2500 track limit. Is there a way around this?

Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

[/quote] Sure sounds like the technician was referring to the 12 volt battery which is rated in AH (amp-hours). The LN1 12 volt battery is rated at 44 AH. The HV battery is 400 volts DC and is rated at approximately 21kWh new. Something is not right!! [/quote] Looking at the paperwork, it indicates ...

Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

[/quote] Should know later today... Spoke to the tech directly, and saw his document regarding EV capacities etc. 2014 Spark needs to hit not 12.65kWh, but 39Ah. Interesting. Torque shows Bat Cap raw at 40.1 for me.. Tech indicates he may reset the values to cause it to re-learn over the next severa...

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...

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.
