Re: Fin Antenna Elements

Re: Fin Antenna Elements

Google is tracking everything you do on your phone as well as sites you visit using chrome. Google never promised privacy. At least Apple says it cares about privacy. Look at software problems VW is having and you might feel better about VW’s ability to do anything with data it’s collected. Google i...

Re: 12v battery question

Find out if it is the correct battery for the e-Golf. If doesn’t drive, then you might as well buy a new battery and see what happens as I suspect towing will cost a lot. Get OBD eleven and check for fault codes.

Re: heater while charging

I use pre-heating all the time. Give the car at least 30 minutes prior to departure time also, use at least a L2 connection so you don’t drain the battery.

Re: A/C Expansion Valve and Cut Off Valve

Re: A/C Expansion Valve and Cut Off Valve

There is a PTC heater in your car - all e-Golf’s have them. Look under the hood and you will see it is a box fed with orange high voltage wires near the passenger side firewall.

If PTC is not working then that is another issue. Time for you to get OBD Eleven to see trouble codes.

Re: A/C Expansion Valve and Cut Off Valve

The part is available. Why not buy it and have an independent shop install it?

probably others have it, too.
