Chevy Volt's gas engine should turn on when main battery is drained. Battery failed to report it was drained so gas engine would not turn on. Car basically shuts down. Dealer replaced 4 battery modules and battery's 'brain' (forget the part name). Cost of repair totals $2700+ but was covered under electrical system warranty...
