Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

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 https://photos.app.goo.gl/zrXzsrYTur3yEpoQA You probably have a newer list of Bolt PIDs than I do. The list I use was provided years ago...

Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

The moderator needs to post this a sticky. If you have a 2014, you are strongly advised to TEST your battery aggressively TODAY, in order to get a warranty claim logged before it is too late. It took one month of research on this forum and others to put Chevy in the warranty box. NO battery yet, bu...

Re: Winter performance?

I bought my 2015 Spark EV in March of last year. Right now, in the winter in Long Island, New York, we're only driving it a few miles a day. So, not all that concerned about range, I've been using the heat pretty much like I would on an ICE car, just to see what would happen. Now, I was expecting a...

Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

.... I guess it might be possible that the battery is really 24 kWh but only 21.3 kwh is used and, at some point as the battery degrades, cells get added back in to keep the capacity up. ... I'm certain that all the cells are in series. There are no high power contactors that can 'add back in cells...

Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

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!! Looking at the paperwork, it indicates "Hybrid Powe...

Re: Battery warranty advice for 2014 Spark

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 several charge...
