(05) Spike from left rear 640w.jpg
Two Saturdays ago I backed out of my driveway, and when I stopped (in the street, to shift from "reverse" into "drive" and continue on my way) my Volt refused to move.
After a few seconds it told me "Shift To Park".
After I did so I saw the word "Initializing" on the "instrument cluster", after which all the indicators turned on for a second as if I had just turned it on.
It all happened pretty quickly and I don't recall pressing the blue button either intentionally or accidentally.
I've never seen "Initializing" at any other time.
By coincidence I was taking the Volt into the dealer that day to address a few issues, and it's not back to me yet, so there hasn't been an opportunity for this to happen again.
Searching for "reboot" found a lot of threads but the word "reboot" wasn't about the car itself (in the subjects and thread I checked).
My 1999 Dodge Durango needed to be rebooted at least twice to clear the idle speed, but that was something I had to do. This seemed to be the Volt spontaneously doing something.
Anybody know anything about reboots of the vehicle?
