Questions About 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EV Electric Systems

  • Is it more expensive to repair Chevrolet Bolt EV electric vehicle systems? The answer is, it depends. Certain high voltage parts are only available as components in larger units. We do offer promotional financing through the Firestone credit card.* (*Subject to credit approval.)
  • When do Chevrolet Bolt EV brakes need to be replaced? 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.
  • What do I do if my Chevrolet Bolt EV dashboard warning light is on? There are so many reasons the Bolt EV dashboard warning light can illuminate. Stop by Firestone Complete Auto Care for an electric vehicle diagnostic to learn more. You may also have a warning light on the dash regarding your high voltage system.
  • 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 offers Bolt EV repair 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 frequently should I have 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.

Local EV Service for 2021 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. If that's the case, our technicians can perform a free* hybrid/electric vehicle check for more details. Maybe there's a problem with your Bolt EV’s high voltage cooling system -- a high voltage battery that's running hot will strain 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 conventional and low voltage services for all electric vehicles, including your 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EV.

Certain Firestone locations also have advanced/high voltage services for electric vehicles like the Chevrolet Bolt EV. A high voltage service is any service that involves removing the Bolt EV's high voltage, safety/service disconnect switch/plug, servicing the high voltage battery pack, high voltage A/C compressor, or any high voltage electric machines/motors or high voltage cables, etc. Call ahead before making an appointment to confirm the high voltage services at your closest location.

Some of these high voltage electric vehicle services might include:

Electric vehicle diagnostic: After any symptoms are identified, then our team performs a diagnostic on your 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EV to get to the root of the trouble. With the information gathered, a trained technician will 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 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: The outer cable jackets and connectors on your 2021 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 your Chevrolet Bolt EV's high voltage battery a goner? Electric vehicle batteries may need replacement sooner in hot climates or if you frequently use Level 3 fast-charging stations, since these stations may heat the battery more. Let us install a new electric vehicle high voltage battery.

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

These are just a few of the more specialized electric car services that might be offered at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care. Call ahead to confirm!
