Re: Newbie here. Does this mean my 2019 e-Golf SEL is accepting 175 kw from DCFC?

Ha! No. If you do the math, you'll find the average charge rate you got was 36 kW - what the e-Golf can manage. 175 kW is an imaginary number. I have seen this 175 kW at one of my EA charge sessions, too. I reported it to EA and they acknowledged it was a bug in their software.

Re: Cabin heating problem

If you really want to know if the heating is working, you need to measure the air temperature coming out of the HVAC vents. Otherwise, your "feeling" may have no relationship to reality.

Re: regen question

Regen, known as regenerative braking, occurs when the drive motor operates in reverse and acts as a generator to convert kinetic energy (motion) into electrical energy.

Re: Cabin heating problem

Does your car have a heat pump? If so, then heat pump provides heating until it gets really cold and then PTC heater turns on. What is the ambient temperature and what temperature did you set fir the cabin? Did you try turning the temperature setting as high as it can go?

Re: Flaky & super-low charging with factory charger (2017 e-golf)

Definitely covered by warranty, though maybe the warranty expired as it is from 2017 - ask VW. Sounds like a faulty L1 EVSE, and maybe you can convince VW it should be covered by 5 year, 60,000 mile warranty. I have no problems with my 10 amp L1 EVSE, other than it overheated once in direct sunshine.

Re: L2 Charging keeps trying to charge after 100% reached

If, as you suspect, the on board charger continues to ask for more energy, then if you set the charge limit to 90% using the granny cable and hit 90% before you go to sleep (can check state of charge by looking at dashboard and/or using OBD dongle), then if the charger continues to pull more power d...

Re: L2 Charging keeps trying to charge after 100% reached

Do you get notifications from the jukebox when you set a lower charge limit, say 80% or 90%? Why not try charging your car to a lower limit using the granny cable and see what happens?

Re: No OBD port?

The OBD port on my car is not under a cover - it is to the left of the steering wheel. I doubt VW removed the OBD port for e-Golfs and I believe I've read about 2018, 2019, and 2020 drivers being able to use OBDEleven to check data.

Re: L2 Charging keeps trying to charge after 100% reached

What if you turn off the notifications? Maybe this is a notification software problem, not a car hardware problem? I have never received notifications so I am blissfully unaware of this type of issue. :D

Re: Build custom box under the hood for cables

Not sure you want to do this. The cooling of the drivetrain, charger, and inverter have been optimized for the current spacing of components under the hood. Unless you are sure your box has no significant impact on cooling, you may end up causing an overheating condition depending on where you place...
