Re: Car on Charger in Key Fob Dead - trifecta

I used a 2032 for awhile until it didn't. Tried replacing with new 2032 on my only KeyFOB and it would not work. I was not able to use my e-golf (2nd car anyway) until I realized it works with a 2025 cell. Really need to get a spare KeyFOB before this 2032 damaged one dies.

Re: Charging Door Won't Open

A few tabs broke, but it seemed to still hold in place. However I used a bit of polyurethane glue to hold the door...

I dremeled out the locking feature on the door backer plate. So I'm done!

Re: Charging Door Won't Open, MECH SOLUTION!

None of the tricks posted here worked for me, but... Here is the mechanical solution I got the idea for from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DN3H43QGZ2k (1) pop off the door cover from the plastic backer/hinge. Some tabs might break but the door should be possible to pop back on and may ...

Re: EV Efficiency

Electric motorcycles are fun. I just sold mine out of necessity. They can at the same time be fast and efficient. Freedom to split traffic is fun. The dust sucks. A streamlined version with gyro stabilized full stability control and V2X collision avoidance would be a blast without the danger and dus...

Re: Solar Proof of Concept

True but keep in mind the cables could be pretty thin, being very low current, 1 to 3 Amps.

The real enabler could be the new super thin flexible metal backed PV panels, if small enough versions exist, they can curve to fit the large curvature on most cars.

Re: Solar Proof of Concept

How about this?

Get enough small PV panels that add up to between 300 and 400V in series. Direct connect to the DCFC port with some sort of arduino controller.

It may need a relay that shuts off the PV direct DC when charging of driving.

Re: Anyone brave enough to try ACC installation?

I might be interested in this if VW openpilot bounty is claimed.

I have a VAGCOM HEX-CAN OBD cable and as soon as I receive my 2016 e-Golf I will look at possible recoding for ACC without going to VW service.

Otherwise I will ask a VW service tech if they can recode the ECU.
