Chevrolet Bolt EUV 2023 Grounding Instructions User Guide

Grounding Instructions

The charge circuit must be grounded. If this charge circuit should malfunction or break down, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This product is equipped with a cord that has an equipment grounding conductor and a grounding plug.
The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

Improper connection of the charge cord ground may cause electrical shock. Check with a qualified electrician if there is doubt as to whether the charge circuit is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the product. If it will not fit the electrical outlet, have a proper electrical outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

FCC Information
See Radio Frequency Statement 0 309.

Utility Interruption of Charging

This vehicle will respond to requests through the utility company to limit or completely block electrical power grid usage. This feature is inactive during DC charging. A utility interruption of charging will lengthen the vehicle’s charge time. When electrical grid power is completely blocked, the vehicle will delay charging until the utility interruption has expired. The vehicle should be left plugged in so that the vehicle can automatically begin charging.

Changing the charge mode to Immediate or performing a delayed charging override will not disable a utility interruption. Unplugging and plugging the car back in will also not disable a utility interruption. A pop-up will appear in the infotainment display while starting the vehicle following any utility interruption. See “Charging Interrupted or Overridden Pop-Up” under Programmable Charging 0 94. A message will display on the instrument cluster indicating that a utility interruption has occurred.

Electrical Requirements for Battery Charging

This vehicle is capable of being charged with most standard vehicle charging equipment that complies with one or more of the following:

  • SAE J1772
  • SAE J2847-2
  • IEC 61851-1
  • IEC 61851-22
  • IEC 61851-23
  • IEC 61851-24
  • IEC 62196
  • IEC 62196-2
  • IEC 62196-3

The original equipment charge cord requires a minimum circuit capacity as follows:

  • 120-volt system — 15 amps
  • 240-volt system — 40 amps (dual level charge cord only)

For a maximum level 2 charging rate, a 240 volt/48 amp charge station is required (not included). The minimum circuit capacity for this system is 60 amps.
Always follow the installation instructions provided with your charging equipment and all local electrical code.

Do not use portable or stationary backup-generating equipment to charge the vehicle. This may cause damage to the vehicle’s charging system. Only charge the vehicle from utility-supplied power.

Never tow a trailer with your vehicle. It was not designed or intended to tow a trailer.

Conversions and Add-Ons

Add-On Electrical Equipment

The Data Link Connector (DLC) is used for vehicle service and Emission Inspection/Maintenance testing. See Service Vehicle Soon Light 0 89. A device connected to the DLC — such as an aftermarket fleet or driver-behavior tracking device — may interfere with vehicle systems. This could affect vehicle operation and cause a crash. Such devices may also access information stored in the vehicle’s systems.

Some electrical equipment can damage the vehicle or cause components to not work and would not be covered by the vehicle warranty. Always check with your dealer before adding electrical equipment.

Add-on equipment can drain the vehicle’s 12-volt battery, even if the vehicle is not operating. When adding electrical equipment, it should only be connected using the accessory power outlets. The maximum power that can be supplied by one accessory power outlet or spread across all three is 200 watts or 15 amps. Exceeding 200 watts or 15 amps may cause erratic vehicle operation. The vehicle has an airbag system. Before attempting to add anything electrical to the vehicle, see Servicing the Airbag-Equipped Vehicle 0 52 and Adding Equipment to the Airbag-Equipped Vehicle 0 52.
