Re: Charging mystery

You said car charges fine at a public L2 station, so you probably have a defective L1 EVSE.

Re: Battery charge port cover (door) latch INOP and charging socket locking INOP

But does it have DCFC? I believe the 2016 SE without DCFC does not have an inlet locking pin, based on pictures I've seen of the vehicle inlet. If there is no pin, then this topic is moot.

Re: Battery charge port cover (door) latch INOP and charging socket locking INOP

Thanks! Out of curiosity, what model year is your e-Golf? Does it have a CCS vehicle inlet (for DCFC and AC charging)? The threads on this forum have indicated when the e-Golf charge inlet locking pin breaks, the computer will not allow charging. You are clearly not having a charging problem, so I w...

By barb, do you mean the moveable latch on the J1772 plug?

Sounds like you are in good shape. Charge on!

Re: Battery charge port cover (door) latch INOP and charging socket locking INOP

If it charges, then I’d say it’s not a problem. Just do not pull out the J1772 plug while charging or you may get a spark.

Re: Battery charge port cover (door) latch INOP and charging socket locking INOP

There are discussion about the J1772 vehicle inlet locking pin on this forum. You might want to try silicone oil to lubricate the pin.

Are you able to charge your e-Golf?

Re: rejuvenation swaps / 90% charge

Yes, VW programmed delayed charging with a location. Glad you were able to find a solution.

Re: rejuvenation swaps / 90% charge

Each location setting has a minimum charge SoC. It is described in the owners manual.

Re: Crazy to attempt 910 mile road Trip in 2019 eGolf SE ?

The e-Golf pack has no way to actively cool itself, which is why the owner’s manual says avoid repeated and consecutive DCFC sessions. Battery pack will get hotter with each DCFC session and high speed driving stint. Car will warn you by limiting power available for DCFC and for driving. While theor...

Re: rejuvenation swaps / 90% charge

1. I do something similar but only once or twice a year on my return trip from the mountains. Anything mechanical will eventually break, so if you are constantly adjusting modes, the selector is likely to wear out sooner than otherwise. I have not advice on screen displays. 2. In the e-manager set m...
