I have my Volt set to send an email to me (which my phone notifies me of immediately), whenever charging is complete and whenever charging is interrupted.
The email when charging is interrupted looks like this:
From: OnStar MyLink for Chevrolet Volt <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Subject: Urgent Message Regarding Your 2011 Chevrolet Volt
Your 2011 Chevrolet Volt is not charging due to an interruption. Please check your vehicle. Possible causes are: vehicle has been unplugged or loss of power to outlet.
Today on my lunchbreak it was 19°F and I used Onstar Mylink to remote start it on my walk out to the car. I'm pretty sure it was in the process of charging at 12.5A from the 120v charger (charging was a couple of hours away from completing) and immediately after it received the remote start command, I received the email like shown above.
Would remote starting the car with it on the charger make it briefly draw more than what it is rated for?
When I got to the car, it was on, still charging, and 2 green lights on the charger.
