My eGolf thinks it is still plugged in. It gives me errors and blinks and beeps on the dashboard. If I push it about 10 feet and then restart it the car drives but keeps beeping errors. Sometimes the issue goes away for a few weeks then it returns again. It started after a power outage at my house. Two different VW service locations cannot figure out issue. Thanks for any feedback.

This may be obvious to you (and many others) but one thing I've started doing that has helped immensely is taking a video of my car doing weird things. That way, when there is discussion about what I saw, it's available right there to the service advisor to see.

I can't tell you how many times I've brought in various vehicles over the years with intermittent problems, only to be dismissively told by the service department that they couldn't find anything wrong.

If you have this sort of evidence already, nice work. If not, capture some video of it, and elevate the problem to VW Customer Care until it's resolved. They are usually pretty helpful...

Good luck and keep us posted!
