Re: Climate preconditioning stopped working and other oddities

Just to be sure, you are pressing the "Engine Start/Stop" button, right? What happens if you don't have your phone connected? Yes, I guess it does say "Start-Engine-Stop," rather than on-off. This has only happened when I hit that button while the phone is still connected, then disconnected while t...

Re: Climate preconditioning stopped working and other oddities

Thanks a lot, Mr. f1geek, for replying to this and other posts. You're a real asset to the community! What is the power rating of your EVSE (in kW)? I have a JuiceBox 40 (in theory it could go to 9.6 kW) and have set my car to take as much as possible, so it is charging at 7.2 kW. Is your e-Golf an ...

Climate preconditioning stopped working and other oddities

I recently programmed preconditioning to preheat my 2019 e-Golf during a cold snap. While the car charges by the time requested, the pre-heating is not being performed. Any ideas? P.S. This morning I deleted the charging profile with the preconditioning and added a new one. I will see if it works to...

ABRP with OBD: Mapping App with live data on state of charge

Just an FYI for e-Golf owners... I own a 2019 e-Golf SEL Premium and have recently subscribed to a Better Route Planner (ABRP premium, needed for live data) and have installed the Vgate vLinker MC+ Bluetooth OBD dongle. While ABRP is still a bit buggy, particularly with Apple iOS and CarPlay, the li...

Re: I damaged my car

I live in Minnesota, which is not yet a CARB state, and had to purchase my new e-Golf out of state. Nevertheless, several VW dealerships in the Minneapolis-St. Paul do service the e-Golf and have trained technicians. I don't know if this was because the dealerships were proactive or not, but for the...

Re: PSA: CAR NET shutdown MY19 and earlier

Here is an idea for the software engineers at VW. Since you've terminated the ability of our e-Golfs to speak via 3G to your servers and for us to use the (actually terrible) Car-Net app. Could you please give us an app that would allow us to check charge status, control charging, and control heatin...

Re: Pre-heating without charging at departure time

I finally got around to programming a new charging location. First, I set the time for the new location to the later departure time with a charge level of 80%, the level of the previous event. In the new location, I turned on the environmental (heating, cooling) function. This approach did work, nam...

Pre-heating without charging at departure time

I own a 2019 e-Golf SEL, and I charge at home with reduced rates from my utility between midnight and 6:00 am. I've set up my departure prefs to charge to 80% by 6:00 am---no issues here. However, I do not leave for work until later in the morning, and I'd like to pre-heat the cabin without addition...

Re: eGolf wheel & tire recommendations

Just my 2 cents... I recently installed Michelin X-Ice Snow tires on cheap alloy wheels (the dealer could not find compatible steel wheels) for my 2019 e-Golf. I was rather surprised to see no noticeable decrease in range during the first couple of drives. Perhaps this should not be surprising, sinc...

Re: Fleeting red ATTENTION popup - 2019 e-Golf SE

This happened to me just about a week ago on my 2019 SEL. A big red alert popped up on the dashboard then suddenly disappeared. I am guessing it was just a sensor glitch for the auto braking system, as mentioned in the previous post.
