Hello Gary
My name is ***** ***** I am from Poland. I am car mechanic in my country and repair all cars and american too.
This is my clients car and I dont know to much about this electrical model. He tried to fix this problem with Opel dealer but they cant repair this problem.
Ok I will check everything you say.
Engine is working good and client still drive this car but he cant charge it from DC.
I didnot drive this car yet. Now car is staying in garage but if You wont I can make test drive.
I will go to check middle screen and tell you what I see

Hi Maciej,

It is good we can talk on the same level here, I'm glad of your good english.

As the repairer, please be very careful, as these cars have high voltages that can KILL.

Opel and Chevy techs need special training for these cars.

I'll look at your photos and come back shortly.

This yellow lamp goes out after 5 to 10 min

Is it really -3c where you are now?

Has the owner tried connecting to a public fast charging station?

What did the dealer say, what do they think is wrong?

Gary

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No I am sure that he dont tried to connect a public charging station
Dealer said that he dont now where is the problem. Probably they did not have a training. We have in europe Opel Ampera ( the same car) but nobody buy it
What does it mean -3c

To me the -3C is outside air temperature, is that how cold it is in your workshop?

I see the owner has driven nearly 1800km in this state, battery 0km, petrol only.

So the vehicle is not charging the battery either.

Do you have a Vauxhall dealer near you?

Yestarday was sunday and we didnot work. Now we have in garage about 12 celsius.
Car still show -3c probably temperature sensor is bad working
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I have Opel dealer near me we can connect scanner if you need.

Looks like it has a few faults.

Hopefully your local Opel dealer will see what is wrong.

I really hope it is not a fault on the high voltage side, including the battery.

On this photo are codes when we conected scanner
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
After that we clear codes and some codes stay
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
The Air bag code is not important for me now

A little difficult for me while it is in Polish.

A few of your codes point to the hybrid battery.

The B0017 points to knee airbag, but further diagnosis required.

Here is the GM VOLT website forum:

http://gm-volt.com/forum/showthread.php?273145-Service-Airbag-Lights

There are many threads on here about VOLT.

Gary

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
B0017 is not important now

The VOLT would be the most complex GM vehicle I know.

Strange for the dealer to not know what is going on here.

They should be addressing the DTCs that are stored in order.

The outside temp error may be something to do it.

If it has the original battery, it may have an internal problem with one cell or more .

You think that the battery is to change?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Do you have information about this codes. Can you send it to me if possible
P1E00
P0D4F
P0D26

Here is some more info:

https://www.tapatalk.com/topic/90918-gm-volt-com/251033-p1e00-code-and-service-high-voltage-charging-system

Have you checked the battery coolant level?

There are two coolant header tanks in the engine bay.

Here is the Diagnostic Instructions

  1. Verify that DTC P0D39–P0D3B, P0D49, P0D4E, P0D4F, P0D53, P0D54, P1ECB–P1ECD, P1ED0–P1ED2, P1ED6–P1ED9, P1EDB, P1EDC, P1EDE–P1EE1, P1EE3, P1EE5, P1EE7–P1EED, P1EFE–P1F02, or P1F14–P1F16 is not set.
    • If any of the DTCs are set

      Replace the T18 Battery Charger.

    • If none of the DTCs are set

All OK

Here is a thread on P0D26:
