Re: 12v Battery monitoring

It would be interesting to watch the discharge with and without the alarm system active. I have heard that with the car locked and the alarm active it uses more battery as a result. Having said that my car sat idle for over a month and when I checked codes with OBDeleven it showed a fault that the b...

Re: Lose 1/8th charge after about a day from full charge, without driving.

Not knowing how the battery management system works, it may be the system balancing the cells. It uses resistors to discharge the cells that have a higher voltage to bring them to the same level as the lower voltage cells, this may be enough to show a less than 100% charge.

Re: Charging port locking issues. Won't lock or unlock - FIX and BYPASS

Is there a way (either by VCDS, OBDEleven) that you can extend the locking pin so it can be cleaned and lubricated regularly? I try to spray some silicon on the pin occasionally but it's a bit difficult with the charging cable attached.

Re: Error: Electrical System. Stop!

FWIW I have read several cases of the same thing happening to the newer (2019) eGolf's, all in the UK forums. Same issue, failed cells in the pack that required pack replacements, along with extended wait times for the procedure to be completed. https://www.speakev.com/threads/error-electrical-syste...

Re: VCDS fix for the climatronic at 72F / 22C - working

I have been trying to figure out the instructions on RT but have not had any luck. Not sure how to execute "All needed is a switch to the engineering session (4F) prior to changing the value." I copied the label file to the specified directory, but don't know if it is being used (or valid). I think...

I haven’t tried yet but a user over at the Ross-tech forums says he has found an answer to this problem.

Re: Charging fault, charging port locked and won't let go

Wipe off the excess, once finished, also helps to lubricate that pin every 2 or 3 months with silicone. Don't wait for it to start sticking. I also sprayed the J1772 plug when I first got the car since it was hard to insert into the charging port, and silicone spray dries with no residue to attract...

With the power plug in place and the retaining pin extended, I was able to spray the extended pin using an extension tube on the can of silicone spray.
OK, thanks, I think I'll go and do mine now :)

Re: Charging fault, charging port locked and won't let go

I was able to release the plug using a punch tool to retract the solenoid pin and lubricated the pin with silicone spray. How did you lubricate the pin? Is there a way to get it to extend when not charging so you have access to it, or did you just spray the silicone as best you could when the pin w...
