Re: Error: Electrical System. Stop!

I do believe within the next ten years electric cars will be cheaper to build and significantly more reliable than gas cars, besides being obviously cheaper to run. Clearly VW missed something when it came to reliability testing for the eGolf, which might be why it was discontinued. The fact that de...

Re: Error: Electrical System. Stop!

Check with a lemon law attorney, being 2 months in the shop in one stretch seems like a crazy long time. You may be able to return the car and get a refund. My 2019 EGOLF has same issue. It has been 2 months but it does not fix yet. Deal always told me waiting for the part. It is no schedule to fix....

Re: Error: Electrical System. Stop!

Good sleuthing indeed! You were right on the cell modules. The service tech didn't mention cell modules and just said 'cells'. I scanned the parts list and noticed CELL MOD, and there are 2 not 3, unless he meant 3 cells were determined to be bad and they happen to be in the 2 modules replaced. Here...

Re: Error: Electrical System. Stop!

This is what it showed the first time after starting the car: IMG-20201010-WA0001.jpg Then it showed this: IMG-20201010-WA0002.jpg The first time this issue bricked my car I didn't see that battery drained message. Note how it says this while my range is well above empty, and I know I had recently c...

Re: Error: Electrical System. Stop!

It so happens that the first time it died, I had almost drained the battery (maybe 5 miles range left) and it was around 100 outside when I plugged it into my 120V portable charger at home. I only twice ever used a DCFC on this car, and no it hasn't been sitting parked for weeks. Since then, I've go...

Re: Error: Electrical System. Stop!

Thanks for the follow up replies - sorry I didn't get notifications of those so I just saw them. 29 days after I had sent my car into the dealership I got my car back after some VW tech flown in from another state diagnosed and then returned later to replace 3 cells shipped from Germany. That was fo...

Re: Error: Electrical System. Stop!

My 2019 eGolf got crippled by the same error. Fortunately I wasn't driving then but instead it happened when parked in my garage. I got it towed to the dealership and their diagnostics showed that multiple cells failed to charge. I was told by the service advisor that VW wanted to keep my car for an...
