  1. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hi there - new 2020 golf gte owner here. have already learnt so much from this forum - is great. I’d like to ask a question I haven’t been able to find: I have everything all setup for scheduled charging, heating the car before setting off etc. The use-case I can’t seem to find is how to keep...
  2. First Generation Ampera and Volt
    I am sure this has been posted before but my Ampera (12 plate) has suddenly lost cabin heat when on electric. On petrol it is fine. Just come out of Vauxhall garage having had the HVAC control module replaced (due to error code) but still not working (error codes now clear). Garage not sure what...
  3. Nissan Leaf40
    Yesterday, the weather was very hot - 35 degrees in the South East. I plugged my 40kWH Leaf into our home Pod 7kw charger as usual, at about 6pm, with about 25% charge remaining to charge overnight. To my surprise, by this morning, I had still not received the Charge Finished notification on...
  4. Kia Soul EV
    Hi I've had a search on here but not seen a post for the climate heating. I've had my Soul about 2 weeks now and loving it, although I haven't needed to use the heating what with this UK summer right now, I sometimes need it for my 6am commute to take the chill off for a bit. The issue is I...
  5. General Charging Discussion
    I am in the process of getting ChargedEV to install me a chargemaster unit, but before they come to do the site survey I thought i would ask on here one big question, which affects where I site the charger. I will of course ask the engineer when he is here, but thought I would get others...
  6. General Nissan EV Discussion
    I tried finding other discussions on this subject but couldn't locate anything. For background info, I purchased a used Nissan Leaf 2014. I paid for the upgrade to be able to use remote climate control ($200 US). I also wound up having to pay to have the heater replaced (~$360 US discounted by...
  7. Renault ZOE
    Ok, on the German forum a renault dealer has now mentioned that multiple use of pre hear, no matter through which method, can disable and confuse the heat pump controller. The solution is a change of the controller, but this needs to be tested at a garage and authorised by renault. To fix it...
  8. BMW i3
    Does anyone know if the motor in an EV would suffer any damage it was driven hard from a cold standing start? (this is not a question about the battery). If you parked over-night at a motorway service station, got up on a cold morning (1 or 2ºC ) and drove immediately out on the slip road and...
  9. Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    I have finished reading through my Leaf owner's manual and I don't understand an entry on page 4-32 :confused:: 'Automatic air intake control'. It seems that by pressing and holding the air recirculation button you are putting it into automatic mode. I am guessing that automatic mode does two...
  10. Tesla Model S
    We took delivery of our new car on Thursday and I drove it for the first time today. Despite setting the ambient temp on the driver's side at 24 deg my feet were frozen. We tried a few climate control settings, reducing fan speed, auto for everything, setting aircon off and extra foot area...
