Mine sounds like that as well. If yours is broken then so is mine!
Using the CanZE app do you mean? And by ‘not started’ do you mean without pressing the Start button, just opening the car, plugging the OBD dongle in and loading the Climate page of the app? If so I can try this tomorrow.Could you get a pressure reading while not "started"? Sounds to me it's out of gas.
Yes!Using the CanZE app do you mean? And by ‘not started’ do you mean without pressing the Start button, just opening the car, plugging the OBD dongle in and loading the Climate page of the app? If so I can try this tomorrow.
TL;DR It's complicated.I’m still curious to know why the full complement of data isn’t being shown in the app
Frederic then has not implemented that in the iOS version. Select R90 please. For all (CanZE) intents and purposes they are the same.by the way, my car is a R110 according to all the specs, but this isn’t a car model that I can select in the app - which option should I select instead, or should it not make any difference?
No that sounds pretty bad. I've heard worse, but would say it's definitely low on gas
Morning, I have a ZE40 R90 model, (pile of shite) but the aircon works perfectly it takes a few seconds to get going, but works great when it is pointed towards the face icon, and not, the feet or upper vents. i find with all three selected, its a bit weaker.PHi all
We've just traded in a '15 plate Zoe which we bought second hand in 2017, for a brand new '19 plate 40kW model (we bought the '15 plate for £6k in 2017 and was given £6.7k as trade-in value against the new purchase – obviously Renault were desperate to shift their old stock in 2017!! ).
One of the things I was looking forward to was ice-cool air conditioning compared to the ambient temperature air that the previous Zoe pushed out when set to the blue 'Min' setting ... a fault I assumed was caused by the gas having leaked out ... but it seems in this brand new Zoe it's exactly the same! Put it on full fan speed on Min, Auto or manual, with or without A/C on, with or without recirculation, and it feels like it's just pushing ambient temperature air around at best!
The Zoe is my wife's car and I drive a '18 plate Nissan Leaf and the difference is night and day – in the Leaf it's icy cold when set to 16°C. It's not like we're giving the A/C a hard time with the Zoe either – it was a mild 20°C today outside and yet with the sun shining in through the windows the cabin was actually starting to get uncomfortably warm, despite the A/C on full-blast!
I can't find anyone else mentioning poor A/C performance in the Zoe on the internet, so either we've had 2 lemons one after another or everyone just puts up with it ...
Any thoughts would be much appreciated as my wife struggled in the recent extreme heat we've had (where it was high 20s, low 30s), and if this is a problem it needs to be fixed pronto ...
No, whether it's started, not started, or even once all the instruments have timed out so none of the dashboard is lit up there's just a dash next to the Pressure ... see below.Could you get a pressure reading while not "started"? Sounds to me it's out of gas.
That is very encouraging to hear, and pretty indisputable evidence that I can approach Renault with to make sure they address this issue properly. I've also just ordered a temperature gun to determine the temperature of the air that's currently coming out of the vents – I'd say it's around 18°C!My aircon has just been fixed by Renault under extended warranty. It had the same symptoms as your's before. The aircon pump was noisy and the cooling was almost non-existent. Renault changed the seals for the center console heat exchanger and re-gassed it. The pump is now quiet and cool air has been restored. The air out of the centre vent comes out at 8 to 10 degrees when it's working at full pelt. The side vents are a few of degrees higher.
I do find in my Q210 that it works better if you select a temperature 2-3 degrees higher than you would normally. i.e. home or office I would choose around 21c but in the Zoe that is cold, seems comfortable at 23, both when its doing ac on a hot day and heat on a cold morning.I think it just has a 'lazy' curve when it comes to inside temp reading vs. heat output
