Questions About 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV Electric Systems

  • Does it cost more to repair Chevrolet Bolt EV electric vehicle systems? The truth is, it depends. Some high voltage components only come within a larger unit. Keep in mind that promotional financing is available through the Firestone credit card.* (*Subject to credit approval.)
  • How often should you replace Chevrolet Bolt EV brakes? A brake check is one of the best ways to know for sure. Staying on top of your OEM maintenance intervals for Bolt EV brakes helps, too. In general, however, front brake pad wear is less in electric vehicles thanks to regenerative braking.
  • What do I do if my Chevrolet Bolt EV dashboard warning light is on? Your Chevrolet Bolt EV dashboard warning light might be on due to a number or reasons. You may also have a warning light on the dash regarding your high voltage system. Stop by Firestone Complete Auto Care for an electric vehicle diagnostic to learn more.

EV Services for Your 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV

Does your Chevrolet Bolt EV run differently than it used to? 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, our technicians can run through a no-charge* electric/hybrid vehicle check to get a deeper understanding. There could be an issue with the high voltage cooling system in your Bolt EV -- if the high voltage battery is running hot, it will limit the battery’s performance. Or, maybe your Bolt EV has Diagnostic Trouble Codes stored in one of its electric modules? Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care location is equipped to offer low voltage and conventional services for all electric cars, including 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EVs.

Some Firestone Complete Auto Care locations also offer advanced/high voltage 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: Once we identify the symptoms, a diagnostic is the next step we take when you bring your 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV in to identify the root cause. With that info in hand, your expert 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: The technician will closely examine the high voltage battery's filter and, if needed, clean the battery's ducts. (This applies to air-cooled high voltage batteries.  Liquid-cooled or refrigerant-cooled high voltage batteries are inspected differently.)

High voltage cable inspection: The outer cable jackets and connectors on your 2018 Bolt EV will be inspected and tested to ensure high voltage is NOT transferring to the chassis. Your technician will notify you if the cable is in need of replacement.

Isolation test: This test involves using a unique tool to see if any high voltage parts are "leaking" electric energy to the Bolt EV's chassis.

Remove and replace high voltage battery: Is the battery in your Chevrolet Bolt EV dead? Electric vehicle batteries can sometimes fail sooner than expected in hotter climates or if you often use Level 3 fast-charging stations, since these stations may heat 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 first to check!
