Hello,
I didn't found any information on DIY-EC forums about chevy volt heater hacking.
I tried to power it with HV on HV input (positive on A, negative on B terminal), tried to apply 12V on 3 pins delphi connector (12V permanent between red and black wire) and 12V on green wire (enable pin ?) but nothing happens...
Someone know how to use it outside the car ? I tried with 290Vdc on input for the moment.
Thanks

I removed the connections and powered mine on 220vac. I think it's rated to 400vdc.
You think that the HV voltage is too low ? It's supposed to start around 280Vdc as the HV voltage can go below 300Vdc (96S x 3V)...

Doesn't the Volt heater require a CAN interface? I thought all the factory HVAC equipment had a proprietary protocol that requires a computer (as opposed to analog inputs).

Hi, did you get some info about? I'm considering the Chevy Volt AC too, but not sure if I could hack.

IIRC it was controlled by relays on the main board in the head input into one of the front "signal" connectors

Btw, it will run on 120 mains voltage just really ineffective
