Error Drive system

Post by Jono » Fri Feb 26, 2021 10:18 am

3rd day with new ID3 - this morning I was greeted with “error drive system - visit workshop”. Perhaps by luck, I was just setting off to the workshop as the car was booked in to correct other errors.

They’ve added this one to the list - I’ll update with outcome.

Currently sat in the socially distanced showroom with 4 other masked customers.

I've seen that posted by a number of users on Facebook, there is a theory that this may happen if you leave the car plugged into a charger for over a certain amount of time.

It's one of those that disappears again - switch off and lock up, wait a few minutes, unlock and start, and it might go away.

It’s been reset by the dealer - seems you can’t leave car plugged in for more than 8 hours.

Looks like I’ll have to get up in the middle of the night to unplug LOL.

Quite unbelievable

What a load of rubbish. Have left ours plugged in for literally days at a time (eg over a weekend when I can’t be bothered to go out in bad weather to unplug or during lockdown when I know it’s not going to be used) .....never had a problem... in fact don’t think I’ve ever left it plugged in for LESS than 8 hours....it’s normally 11-12 as a minimum...

So from your similar comment on other threads, they gave you the same reason (plugged in for longer than 8 hours) for all your faults?

Which dealership is this?

Yes, they said there are known issues when it’s plugged in for over 8 hours.

The vehicle low speed sound fault

The drive unit fault

No idea what’s caused the latest fault - really frustrating as it’s blocking 1/4 the screen

I am considering changing my MK7 golf later in the year and thought the ID 3 would be a good way forward. With all the error/software bugs being reported, i am starting to become concerned i could be buying a £30k, white elephant ?

The software has come a long way in a shorter time - from the 0564 version that initial cars were shipped with to the 0783 (also known as 2.0) version that’s been available since mid-December. I’ve had more than 20 issues/quirks resolved since I got mine, there are now just 8 items left on my list.

The 2.1 software which is just starting to rollout is the version that VW always intended to be on the car from the start.

What charger have you got?
Mine sits every night on 3-phase reduced 7,x kW (could use 11 kW, but lower kW usually means longer battery life).
Departure times set to morning leaving time and since now happy.
I don't believe, that connection makes any bad, even, if charging all the time.

Same issue here, it goes away if I turn the car off and on again it’s annoying as I’ve only had it back from the dealer a few days.

Hopefully this will be fixed in the 2.1 update.

I charge the car using an official 3pin charger into a mains socket (currently waiting for an EO mini charger to be fitted).

Clearly once it hits 8 hours it tiggers something in the code which causes the issues.
