    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hey all, First off I want to say thank you for providing such a friendly and helpful forum (from what I have seen).

    General Volkswagen EV Forum
    Hi, I recently purchased a new Golf GTE. My experience with Car-Net so far i catastrophic. I've been in touch with Car-Net support here in Sweden and they confirm the issues I'm experiencing. They also informed that VW are aware of the issues and are working on a new platform? Does anyone have...

    Morning, Last Wednesday (3rd Jan) on the way home from work I received a warning light in the GTE. “Low Coolant Level - Check”, followed shortly by “12V battery not charging - Pull over safely”.

  7. Clearing the windscreen and heating the car via Car-net

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    So I have Car-net communicating with the car (I think) but not quite achieving what I am asking it to do! 1) Via the Car-Net app I tap e-Manager then Air conditioning>Start (the button with the thermometer on it) the car receives a message but when I go to the car, only the A/C light is on, but...
