Re: Will not accept charge.

Just checked the warranty manual for my car: USA e-Golf has 5 year / 60,000 mile drivetrain warranty, which covers high voltage system in car.

Re: Will not accept charge.

Yes, in the USA the e-Golf has a 5 (6? - I need to check the booklet in the glovebox) year high voltage system warranty in addition to the battery itself. You should check.

Re: Will not accept charge.

Sorry to hear about your troubles. Is there still a power train / high voltage system warranty on your car?

I agree charging at higher amps (13 amps at home vs 30 amps at work?) should not cause a problem. Has anyone else used the charging station at work after you did and have an issue?

Re: hot ambient and charging

I'm an engineer and I like to know how mechanisms work. I routinely repair my cars myself and have been taking apart machines and repairing machines since I was a child (a long time ago....). If you visit a VW parts website, you can find schematics of the cooling system and you will see there is no ...

Re: Golf not charging with wallbox

More information is needed to assist: 1. By "plug socket 220v" what do you mean? It is not possible to plug car into a 220 V socket without a charging station, so what charging station are you using? 2. What brand / model of wallbox do you have? What is the circuit amperage? What is the wa...

Re: hot ambient and charging

In fact, my e-Golf is not silent, when charging, even on mild days. I routinely hear the coolant pump(s) running, and have felt the flow in coolant piping feeding the OBC. I have not noticed the radiator fan come on during home charging, but it might happen occasionally. When I charge in 105 F heat ...

Re: hot ambient and charging

Motor and power electronics have a cooling system, but NOT the battery pack. You can look under the hood for yourself or look at car schematics - this is well known and not a mystery. A charging station can overheat, the car’s charger can overheat (unlikely given the cooling system) or the battery c...

Re: Most efficient LRR tire to replace Ecopia 422

My car’s original fitment Ecopias are still looking good at 43k miles. I rotate them about once a year or every 10,000 miles or so.

Re: Error: Electrical System. Stop!

Thanks for detailed repair job. It also looks like the motor inverter (I assume that is JX1 module) was replaced. Not clear what the problem really was. Good to know Boardwalk VW can do the work b
