Re: Heat and electrical stuff on when engine off

I must admit I assumed the heating and peripherals would all be powered from the main battery and the 12volt did things like hazard lights and locks... Does anyone know for certain what the 12v battery powers? I believe it's everything except the drive motor. It is meant to be topped up when the ca...

Re: Heat and electrical stuff on when engine off

It's wise to keep an eye on your 12v battery as it can become depleted and just driving the car isn't always enough to keep it topped up. I've started putting a 12v charger on it from time to time to make sure. I must admit I assumed the heating and peripherals would all be powered from the main ba...

Re: Heat and electrical stuff on when engine off

You can run the heating to your heart’s content... with lights off.

Re: ACC is Deactivated for 25 Minutes Why? Where is the radar sensor?

I think I’ve had this error but only briefly, never in an extended repeated fashion as you describe. Sounds like it could well be in the mix of the software issues, it’s strange how things manifest differently for so many people. The radar sensor is behind the front bumper, however there are a wealt...

Re: Heat Pump and Range

Rather than expecting the heat pump to increase your range is it more useful to view that the heat pump reduces the impact of heating the car and protecting the range. By extension, a non heated, non pump equipped EV will out perform one with a heat pump. In order to achieve 30% improvement I assume...

Re: error message, error drive system please visit workshop

Yes, just once, and switching off and on cleared it.
The danger is it makes you think EVERY error message is actually not a real real error message :-/

What new SW feature would you like for Christmas?

It’s Christmas so what ID3 present would you like? Not making an existing one work properly (and will hopefully fixed by 2.x) but instead something extra and new... I’d quite like the option to turn off the range guess-o-meter and instead have the number of kWh left in the battery displayed. Then yo...

Re: We Connect ID app and missing wifi

I had this problem when the car was offline. Going into settings (in the car) and flipping to online resolved the display in the app straight away. Try setting the car to offline and see if it recreates the issue.

Re: Regen braking misunderstood by reviewers

I agree.
I started on D (because that’s what comes first when you twist the knob), then moved to B (thinking that would maximise regen), and now use both. I have noticed improved efficiency mixing them.
