My 2017 ED had a similar problem as it would not start in my home garage, so I hooked up my battery charger and in just a few seconds the car could be started and all seemed fine. The main battery of the car charges the 12v battery once the car is started so the 12v was brought to normal in just a few minutes.

Since I didn't want this to happen again and since there's no gauge that measures the health of the 12v battery, I installed a bluetooth battery monitor. It tells me what the battery condition is now and what it's been historically but for me the most important thing is that it tells me if the drain is excessive and informs me right away right on my smart phone. So long before the car will not start, I'm able to do something about it which in my case would mean simply starting the car to recharge the battery.

Since I installed the bluetooth monitor my battery has never failed but at least I'm prepared just in case.

Cheers,

Terry.

Thanks very much for sending this along - if it happens again I will have a starting point.

Cheers.

In my opinion batteries last longer these days, my 2009 Passion is still on it's first battery. I am wondering where the generator is that charges the 12V battery. Many of my trips are under 3 miles. I have had "charge 12V battery NOW" message on a couple non-start occasions. After connecting a charger, it indicated "Full Charge" almost instantly I am ruling out 12V battery and am convinced it is some sort of computer glitch. I did hit a really large pothole that destroyed two wheels and probably shook up the electronics. Until I can drive to the dealer my fix for when this non-start happens is to push the car slightly forward (4 ft) and so far it reverts to a normal start.

On a different note; I replaced all four wheels with 16 inchers and high performance low profile tires. Then I read a MotorTrend article telling me cool sporty wheel/tire combinations will decrease the range of an electric vehicle, not significantly with my driving so far. The tires have a 40Z rating (drive flat at 40mph) which I like.
When mine failed to start, problem showed up 100% of the time if ac compressor switch was on.
HV battery was determined to be the problem by dealer and replaced under warranty.

Look for inside right panel for wire harness near frame shorting, it disabled my 2013 ED and caused issues with others.
Seems to be common issue.
I had errors before full disable.

Don't know it, but if you look for the Group 47 Delco Professional with a 42 month warranty you'll end up with the right battery.

Group 47 is the correct battery. Make sure you connect the vent tube. Also, to r & R the battery, you have to tilt the battery at the rear.
