Why won't my vehicle start?
There are numerous reasons why a vehicle won't start. If it's related to the battery, the starter will generally not crank the engine. This is the telltale "click, click, click" you hear when you turn the key or push the start button that lasts for about 10 seconds. The battery voltage and charging information in the Driver Information Center (DIC) can also make you aware if the alternator is not charging the battery properly, or if a loose battery or starter cable is causing a problem.
Do I need to charge my battery after I jump-start my vehicle?
In most instances, driving will recharge the battery fully in 1-2 hours, unless there is an issue with the vehicle. If your vehicle does not restart after driving it, have it towed to your nearest Certified Service experts to have a diagnosis performed.
What are the main causes of automotive battery failure?
Batteries wear out over time, but issues such as improperly connected accessories, infrequent startup, hot temperatures, and high cranking currents caused by freezing temperatures (32 degrees Fahrenheit or colder) can lead to battery failure.
Can preventive maintenance improve battery life?
The best thing that you can do is have your Certified Service technician perform a test on your battery when you get your oil changed. This helps monitor the status of the battery and helps prevent you from being in a situation where your vehicle won't start.
How often should I change my battery?
Vehicle batteries last 3-5 years on average depending on a number of factors, including driving habits and climate. In general, warmer climates will shorten the life of a battery. Also, long periods of time spent in a discharged state tend to increase damage due to sulfation.
What if I'm not sure the problem is my battery?
Your Certified Service experts can give you a no-charge battery test to determine if your battery needs replacing or if there is an issue with another charging component.
Chevy Bolt & Chevy Volt Battery Basics
If you choose the Chevy Volt or Chevy Bolt, then the battery basics will be a little different for these vehicles since they use hybrid technology or rely solely on an electric battery. Here's what you'll need to know:
How long do Chevy Volt and Chevy Bolt batteries last?
One of the perks of having an electric vehicle is that the battery lasts a significantly long time. The specific time your battery will last can vary on several factors, but the Chevy Volt battery has been reported to last well over 100,000 miles, and some have even gone past 200,000 miles. A Chevy Bolt battery has been reported to last well over 300,000 miles before needing to be replaced.
When should I replace my Chevy EV battery?
It's recommended that the Chevy Volt battery should be replaced every three to four years or around every 36,000-48,000 miles. The Chevy Bolt battery can be replaced around 8 years or 100,000 miles since that is the Chevy warranty coverage for the Chevy Bolt.
How long does it take to charge a Chevy Volt and a Chevy Bolt?
The charging time for either of these vehicles will depend on which kind of charging option you choose. A Chevy Volt battery can be charged in around 13 hours with a standard charger or about 4.5 hours with a 240v charging unit. With a Chevy Bolt battery, you can expect about 25 miles of charge per hour using a Level 2 charger. With a public charger, you can get about 100 miles of charge in approximately 30 minutes.

The Chevy Volt battery is expected to have an electric drive range of 38 miles for a combined total range of around 380 miles.
