  5. Aftermarket extended warranty

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    I looked at this a while ago and like you i had the experience of 'of course it's covered' only to find numerous get out of jail statements in the policy itself. I concluded that I was better off putting aside the money it would have cost each month towards repairs. The market for such policies...

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Probably just the display dimmer on the right hand side, the light sensor on the dash tends to decide it's dark and dim the display
  8. Another 'Unable to Charge'

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    looks like a trip to the dealers, it might be a faulty J1772 socket, if it was the car charger i'd expect to see some codes. and you're not seeing them Interesting to see if there are codes after the granny
  9. Another 'Unable to Charge'

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    See if you get different behaviour with the granny charge might be a broken pilot signal cable.

  11. I Think My Ampera May Have To Go...

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Sounds like your employer is being pretty backward, don't they know EV's are the future. worth taking another look at the home charging situation there's got to be a way to do it.
  12. P0D3E DTC code

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Just cleared P0D3E code, for information this relates to a low voltage condition in the charger typically caused by Network Operator Switching spikes. It's a permenant stored code so dealer tool required to remove it, you can turn off the EML though. EML should turn off by itself with the...

  17. Window regulator

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Any multimeter will allow you to test the switch, all you have to do is get to it, then use the 'continuity' function to test it
  18. Window regulator

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Disconnecting the 12v is unlikely to provide any fix and none of the computers are going to be involved as there is no data connection. the most likley circuit is a feed to the switch then a 2 pole change over in the window switch, which allows the motor to drive one way to open the window and...
  19. Anyone replaced brake pads yet?

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Both by rear back plates were damaged, new one procured thanks to @proddick while it was all apart replaced with Brembo discs and pads at 55K miles.
  20. Odd battery question (12v)

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    I'm assuming that you are charging the 12v in place ? It's not a good idea to use a stanard battery charger, you need one that is designed for in place charging, a standard charger puts out quite a high voltage even on load up to 15v. The GM battery is not a normal lead acid, it's an AGM...
