Re: Error: Electrical System. Stop!

I experienced the car stalling while driving only once. That happened in 2017 when I was driving a 2016 eGolf (now I have a 2019 eGolf). I took the car to Boardwalk VW in Redwood City and it took them almost two weeks to fix it. They replaced the entire high-voltage wiring. The repair was covered by...

12V Battery Dead

Last Saturday I experienced a completely dead 12V battery in my eGolf SEL 2019. The voltage was down to some 2V! I used a regular 12V charger to re-charge the battery (while it was plugged in, I didn't bother taking it out of the car). Next day the car worked like normal. No error indication. To ens...

Re: Charging problem

I have the same configuration (2019 eGolf SEL, JuiceBox). I programmed the JuiceBox to charge between 23:00 and 07:00 (on weekdays). When I plug in the car outside the charging window, both orange LEDs come on, but no charging takes place. The LEDs turn off after a while. When the charging starts, t...

Re: Help with Google Maps

I should also mention one feature of "Android Auto" which I am using quiet often. I say: "Hey Google, read my text messages" It would then read all my new and unread messages. After reading a message, it would ask if I want to reply. I say: "Yes" It would then ask for t...

Re: Help with Google Maps

I am using Google Maps only - I have never used the built-in maps. I used Google Maps with my first eGolf (2016 SEL) and now also with my 2nd (2019 SEL Premium). I connect my Android phone with a USB cable - Bluetooth does not work for this. You need to have Android Auto installed on your phone. I v...

Re: help estimate my capacity

This is what the instruments tell you: you drove 58 mi using 4.8 mi/kwh - this means you used 12.1 kwh of energy (58 mi / 4.8 mi/kwh = 12.1kwh) each of the sub-marks in the battery gauge is 1/16 of the full battery charge - you used 11/16 of the battery for the trip (assuming the battery was fully c...

Re: CarNet issues

I always thought the old app was one of the worst apps there is. It was very slow, the user interface was anything bu intuitive. And why do I have to provide a pin after I signed on? I did not think it is possible to make the app worse.... but VW did it.

Re: Chargepoint plug too big

The charging stations at my office used to have the plug as shown above in the second picture. These plugs did not fit until I removed the green rubber band that you can see in the picture. Once removed, the plug fits just fine. They have replaced these plugs since.....
