Questions About 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV Electric Systems

  • Are Chevrolet Bolt EV electric vehicle systems more expensive to repair? 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 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.
  • Why is my Chevrolet Bolt EV dashboard warning light on? 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? If you’ve been running the A/C in your electric car, don’t be too surprised to find some water underneath it. Electric vehicles use a receiver dryer assembly to help keep the A/C refrigerant clean, which can produce external condensation. This condensation then drains under the vehicle on warm days. While a small amount of water can be considered normal, large puddles or any coolant leaking from your Bolt EV could indicate a cooling system problem.
  • Who repairs Bolt EV vehicles near me? Firestone Complete Auto Care repairs Chevrolet Bolt EV vehicles near you! View all of our low-voltage and high-voltage services.
  • How often should I take my Chevrolet Bolt EV in for maintenance? To determine the optimal service intervals for your Chevrolet Bolt EV, it is important to consider factors such as your driving habits, vehicle age, and mileage. Check your owner's manual or speak with an automotive professional for more specific guidance. Keep in mind that even electric cars require regular maintenance, such as tire rotations, brake inspections, and fluid checks. Additionally, electric cars require maintenance for the battery, brakes, and A/C system.

2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV EV Services

Does your Chevrolet Bolt EV run differently than it used to? Maybe you've noticed slower acceleration, or it just doesn't feel as "peppy" as it once did. If so, Firestone technicians can conduct a no-cost* hybrid/electric vehicle check for more details. 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. Then again, it could be that 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 your 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV.

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 anything that requires removing the Chevrolet's high voltage, service/safety disconnect plug/switch, servicing any high voltage cables, the power inverter, the high voltage electric machines/motors, the high voltage battery pack, high voltage A/C compressor, 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 investigate any electric vehicle problems and decide if more analysis is required to complete the fix. No repair work is done until you give us the thumbs up.

High voltage battery cooling inspection: Your technician will examine the Bolt EV's high voltage battery filter, if applicable, and 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: Cables can get damaged. In this inspection, your tehnician will examine the exterior cable jackets and connectors and test to make sure high voltage is NOT transferring to the chassis of your Chevrolet Bolt EV. If the cable needs to be replaced, they'll let you know.

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 may need replacement sooner in hot climates or if you frequently use Level 3 fast-charging stations, since these chargers can heat the battery more. Let us install a new electric vehicle high voltage battery.

Health check for the power electronic systems: We'll inspect the regenerative braking, power inverter, and/or electric drive machine(s)/motor(s) 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 ahead to confirm!
