My car was registered on the 6th Jan 2020.I tried a similar hack to my Podpoint, interrupting the CP line with a timer controlled relay. Works fine if it's within a few minutes of the car requesting a charge but not when it connects some time later ie at 00:30 when octopus cheap rate begins. I suspect the car. It went in for the comfort update but after 3 attempts by the garage, I still get no outside temperature display or charging whilst unlocked. It seems to only request to charge for a limited time before giving up. Anybody else seen similar behaviour.
It had the first “Delayed Charge” upgrade installed by the dealer prior to collection.
I have a dumb 32Amp Rolec unit that was installed in around 2015.
The car charged fine from the Rolec but I had no means of setting a delayed charge in order to take advantage of my off peak rate.
Then in February 2020 I installed a Sonoff Wi-Fi switch inside of the wall box.
This has been used successfully to perform delayed charging from the App on my IPhone ever since.
I had the “Comfort 2” update applied in around October this year and everything is fine.
The car is due for its first service in a few weeks and I have requested the recall for the drivers door wiring loom to be rectified, plus the update for the HV battery fuse software to be applied ( SO17 I believe ).
i want than to apply the second BMS update, that will allow the car to remain charging when plugged into my wall box when the doors are unlocked.
