Re: Timed Charging

I'll have a look at that when on holiday.
In the meantime the charge worked perfectly at the times I had set.
Thanks Sidehaas.

Re: Timed Charging

Thanks MattID3 - where else but YouTube! But seems to be an official VW thing. Sidehaas - Yes, just testing at home to see if it works. Then I can create a new location whilst on holiday. Either way, after setting (in the car) a preferred time of 00.30 to 04.30, but in the app it show 12.30 to 03.30...

Timed Charging

At a holiday cottage we will be renting next week, I'm told that if I use a timed charge, to coincide with the owners cheap night tariff, they will not charge me! Unfortunately I have no idea how to set this up. Their cheap tarif is 12.30am to 04.00am. The only thing I can find about this is 'depart...

Yes, I had a type 2 included; I believe this was the original spec.

Re: Mobile Phone Signal

Network surely? That was my first thought, but their website (Vodafone) and coverage maps suggest otherwise. Unless it's very local and not reported. Just wondered if this had been seen by others. I've signed up, but don't know if I'll get the 3.2.1 OTA update if the signal is that poor. Local smar...

Mobile Phone Signal

Recently, in the last couple of weeks, I noticed that the indicator on the main screen changed from 4G to E in terms of signal (same number of bars as before). I still get the appropriate number of bars - 2 at home and all 4/5 in our local village. I just checked with the likes of Vodafone etc. and ...

Top right of the screen is a message icon, it displays how many messages you have. Click on that and you should se...

Re: Charge Flap will not stay shut!

Just been for a short drive. Came back, the flap now opens and closes normally!
I've charged overnight in the rain many times, but this is the first time with a frost; perhaps that was it.
Either way it's now working properly - we live and learn ...

Charge Flap will not stay shut!

I charged my car at home last night. The vehicle was completely covered in frost this morning. I've just been out to remove the charge cable but didn't notice an unlocking click (double click on the key). The cable came out and I pushed the flap to the closed position. I then wrapped up the charging...

Hi g320y
Welcome to the forum!
If you ever plan to come to Scotland I suggest you get, in advance, the ChargePlaceScotland RFID card.
Most public chargers here don't take debit/credit cards at all.

Re: ID Light on facelift model.

Unfortunately the red emergency brake light is a pain on single track roads (with passing places). Where I live, most roads are single track; normal practice sees drivers adjusting speed slightly to coincide with an oncoming vehicle at the passing place. This means neither of us has to stop, simply ...

Is not having locking wheel nuts illegal? I cannot find an answer to this - seems it was only to prevent theft - not a safety issue.
