My favourite error message so far

Over the last few weeks voice control has been cutting in for no particular reason. On my last journey after continuing to offer me directions to places I’ve never heard of and refusing to shut up, I have to admit my polite requests became somewhat abusive. She then came out with the immortal punchl...

Re: 1st Edition Socks

I’ve heard there’s a softwear update that might fix that problem...

On Wednesday when the temperature was >12degc, I did 40 miles mixed driving at 3.9 m/kWhr (15.9kWh/100km).
So much better than cold weather 2.5-2.7 m/kWhr!
That’s the sort of performance I’m seeing too. I’m looking forward to the warmer weather for two reasons now :)

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...

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 :-/
