Cooling/Heating main battery 2016

Does anybody know at what temp the heating/cooling pumps turn on for the main battery conditioning?

Thanks

Nope, but I can tell you running it on a day when its 110º will use about 12-15% battery power just on battery conditioning.

And when it's that dang hot you should have it plugged in as much as possible.
It uses 'Ground Power' to keep the battery at a happy temp and then the 'Battery Conditioning' power used while driving would be less.
I don't think the Spark EV uses battery power when unplugged to cool or heat the battery.
The Bolt will use battery power for TMS down to 40% SOC then it's just a Spark EV after that.....

GM needs Modern Troubleshooting tools for Modern EV's.
3 step Trouble Tree, 1st try, nope, 2nd try / cost $800. 3rd try fixed it.
