Cold morning and snow this am. On starting the id3 i was presented with the following error message

Drove about 30 miles error message still present.

Turned car off and back on error message no more.

Has anyone else experienced this?

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 :-/

I face the same issue. It's more than just annoying. The car doesn't start when I need it the most.

I couldn't move my car with this message. I feel it had something to do with getting in the car quickly and things not being awake properly. It has been taken to VW and they have ordered a part. Been a week so far. Will update when I have something to report 🙂

This didn't happen pre 2.1 software

Cheers

Yup, that’s me right now. Sat waiting for roadside assistance. Car refusing to go forwards or backwards. 2.1 software. Picked up car 8 days ago. Not good.

Any update on your “adventure”?

Well, seen that video or similar many time with my ID2.5!
Wait till you get the warning message saying "do not drive vehicle" (if you could) and complete loss of breaking (Park Break) and have to use breeze block to stop the vehicle rolling away. Its all in the new 2.1 update too in fact worse!! Vehicle definitely not fit for purpose. Mine is now back at the dealer with a zone heating fault, passenger side very hot and drivers side very cold when temp sync set!! Proposed sensor fault, after changing side reversal occurred!! VDub has lost my confidence completely after 15 new golfs over the years. Vv disappointed.

Been getting the error for a few weeks now. It's with the dealer now for the last 3 weeks. They haven't a clue what the problem is. Last time it happened couldn't start the car for 50 minutes

Update on my adventure: AA arrived (via VW Roadside Assistance) and had no clue what could be wrong (this, I am guessing, is fairly common as EVs are far from mainstream yet in the UK). He disconnected and reconnected the 12V battery, only to set off 7 yellow alerts. Shifter still doing nothing. Which includes not being able to put it in neutral and roll.

So rescue vehicle was called, and managed – with great skill I must say – to pull the car onto his truck (rear wheels locked, front rolling for some reason). Deposited it near my house, and lo an behold – the "gears" work again! But all other warning lights going still. So I am not moving it, risking all kinds of things.

Rang dealership today, finally got a very helpful woman who now has organised for the car to be collected and for a hire car to be delivered. Fingers crossed they figure it out fairly soon, as I was really enjoying the ID.3 until it refused to move. I will try to keep this post going as things progress.
