Re: Hello there

..... Tried the voice control again, and it doesn’t function with anything to do with climate on the Style trim. I thought I’d be at least able to turn on/off the heated seats and wheel. Ah well. Voice control works for opening and closing the blind on the panoramic roof, and for the usual navigati...

Re: Pre-Purchase Help Requested

Ah. I hope I haven't given misleading info in my previous post. Simonrg, I gather your problem is with switching on Air Condition Now, on the car's infotainment screen, when leaving the car. I've never tried doing that. I use the We Connect ID app on my (Android) phone, and tap the Air Conditioning...

Re: Pre-Purchase Help Requested

When delivered at the beginning of 2021 my ID3 was the same - Pre-conditioning using the app only worked when the car was plugged in. After having the software updated I can now reliably precondition anywhere using the app (as long as there is mobile coverage!). I would check the version of your ca...

Re: Anyone contacted by VW about the heatPump?

So does this mean VW will also be offering refunds for misleading people over the range of the ID.3 - https://youtu.be/2qWvo9sbpRc Here VW say you should expect a range of 300 - 420km, 189 - 265miles - roughly 75-110% of WLTP which is in line with other EVs on the market and experience of my friends...

Re: Stationary Aircon (heat) only functions when charging

It’s a Max with Heat Pump Thanks it does look like it should work, I have just spotted a long discussion thread on the Facebook forum that there is an issue - https://www.facebook.com/groups/1678376285643713/permalink/1890514854429854/ that it needs an upgrade. This is frustrating as my car has jus...

Mine works ok from car and we connect I’d app. I know that battery has to be at a certain level for it to work
Thanks, good to know that this works for somebody when not plugged in.

What spec is your ID.3 (i.e. Life/Business/.....) and do you have a heat pump?

Re: Pre-Purchase Help Requested

1. The Tech model has a single-zone Climatronic climate system, and I'm aware from this forum that voice commands don't work with this system. My first question is will there be any problems using this system (as opposed to a dual-zone system found on some other models) with WeConnect for remotely ...

Re: Stationary Aircon (heat) only functions when charging

Hi Simon Having 'fiddled' further, I found 12v battery was ok, and didn't make any difference. Found Stat heating will work (Through App or in car 'switching') if the charge lead is plugged in even if not drawing charge at the time the heating is activated. My dealer now tells me it is only designe...

Re: Automatic door unlocking

New owner of Life PP, and 95 percent happy with this EV. A bit disappointed to find no rear view camera (but can cope without) but struggling with getting auto door unlocking to function and a sticky boot operation - it seems to wait a few seconds before letting me in with doors unlocked. Any sugge...

Re: New Owner, and question on smartphone charging....

The wireless charging is a bit fiddly, lay your iPhone centrally in the small compartment in the centre console, then wait for the infotainment system to tell you phone is charging, may take a 30 seconds, if no message then try moving the phone a bit. The manual/vehicle wallet under the help section...
