Questions About 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV Electric Systems

  • Is it more expensive to repair Chevrolet Bolt EV electric vehicle systems? It depends. Some high voltage items are only available as parts of larger units. We also offer promotional financing when you use the Firestone credit card.* (*Subject to credit approval.)
  • How do I know when to get new brakes on my Chevrolet Bolt EV? A brake inspection is your smartest first step. Investing in manufacturer suggested maintenance intervals for Chevrolet Bolt EV brakes is another good idea. That said, front brake pad wear can be significantly reduced in electric vehicles because of regenerative braking.
  • My Chevrolet Bolt EV dashboard warning light is on. What should I do? A dashboard warning light means your Chevrolet Bolt EV needs some sort of attention. There may also be a high voltage system warning light on. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for an electric vehicle diagnostic.
  • What can cause my Bolt EV to leak water? It is common for electric cars to have some water accumulation underneath them after using the air conditioning system for a bit of time. Electric car A/C systems use receiver dryer assemblies to help the refrigerant stay clean, and this process can create condensation that drains under the vehicle on warm days. Noticing a bit of water under your Bolt EV shouldn’t be a cause for concern, but significant amounts of water or any coolant leaks could indicate an issue with your cooling system.
  • Who repairs Bolt EV vehicles near me? If you need repairs for your Chevrolet Bolt EV, your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care can help. Check out our low-voltage and high-voltage services.
  • How often should I get my Chevrolet Bolt EV vehicle serviced? Maintenance intervals for your Chevrolet Bolt EV depend heavily on your driving habits. For guidance, reference your owner’s manual. You should plan to stop by for tire rotations, brake inspections, and fluid checks according to your vehicle manufacturer's suggested maintenance schedule. You will also need routine A/C system, battery, and brake maintenance.

2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV EV Services

Has your Chevrolet Bolt EV been feeling a bit "off"? Perhaps you've noted weaker braking, or your vehicle doesn't feel like it has the same "get up and go" that it used to. Whatever the issue, Firestone technicians can conduct a no-cost* electric/hybrid vehicle check to get a deeper understanding. Perhaps there is trouble inside your Bolt EV's high voltage cooling system -- if the high voltage battery is running hot, it will limit the battery’s performance. Or, perhaps there are Diagnostic Trouble Codes stored in one of your Bolt EV's electric modules? Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care location is equipped to offer low voltage and conventional services for all electric cars, and that includes your 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV.

Certain Firestone Complete Auto Care locations also provide high voltage/advanced services for electric vehicles like the Chevrolet Bolt EV. A high voltage service is any service that involves taking out the Chevrolet's high voltage, service/safety disconnect plug/switch, servicing high voltage electric machines/motors, the high voltage battery pack, high voltage A/C compressor, any high voltage cables, etc. Before making an appointment, call your closest location to confirm that high voltage services are offered.

Some of these high voltage electric vehicle services might include:

Electric vehicle diagnostic: A diagnostic is the next step we take after noting the symptoms your Chevrolet Bolt EV is showcasing. This step will help us get to the bottom of the real problem. With that info in hand, a professional technician can further pinpoint any electric vehicle problems and figure out if more tests are needed. No repairs are performed without your consent.

High voltage battery cooling inspection: Your technician will inspect the Bolt EV's high voltage battery filter (if applicable) and clean the ducts of the battery.  (This applies to air-cooled high voltage batteries. Liquid-cooled or refrigerant-cooled high voltage batteries are inspected differently.)

High voltage cable inspection: Your technician will visually inspect the outer cable jackets and connectors on your 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV and test to ensure high voltage is NOT transferring to the chassis. They'll let you know if the cable needs replacement due to wear and tear.

Isolation test: During this test, the technician will use a special tool to check for any high voltage components that are "leaking" electric energy to the chassis.

Remove and replace high voltage battery: Is your 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV high voltage battery weak and failing? Electric vehicle batteries may need replacement sooner in hot climates or if you frequently use Level 3 fast-charging stations, as these stations can heat up the battery more. We can replace your electric vehicle's high voltage battery.

Health check for the power electronic systems: We'll inspect the power inverter, electric drive machine(s)/motor(s), and/or regenerative braking in your Chevrolet Bolt EV.

These are only a few of the special electric car services that could be available at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care. Call and ask!
