OK, so the good news is, as I have said all along, I have a bad battery in my Bolt.
GM is starting to apply a firmware update to resolve the charging issues on the earlier '17, '18, and some '19 Bolts. As mine is a 2018, it had the battery pack which came out of China and not the one made here in the US.
So I make my appointment with the Chevy dealership in Washington instead of Bob Grimm in Morton (the one that said my battery was fine), and they just called saying I do indeed have a bad battery pack and have already placed an order for a replacement. Sweet, this is the outcome I desired anyway. Now I don't have to go through the whole lemon law, buy back rig-a-ma-roll, and I keep my car and a new pack. He said it shouldn't take more than 7 to 10 days to get the replacement pack to the dealership and they will set me up when it arrives.
This makes me happy.
