Re: Trailer wiring

I will install a hitch to my 2017 eGolf [...] I have to add that I am pretty handy with wiring these things, it's just that I don't know which one will work with the eGolf. My 2018 owner's manual is very specific. It says IF YOU INSTALL A TRAILER HITCH YOU WILL CAUSE EXPENSIVE DAMAGE TO THE VEHICLE...

Re: Is there a way to see battery percentage or charge rates

I checked today during Level II charging. It is similar to what is shown during Level III charging.

Te green and blue lines definitely show Amperes and Voltage; the green line gets shorter as charging nears completion. I do not know if it is possible to attribute actual numeric values to them.

Re: Charging display - or is there one?? 2017/18 e-Golf

I learned something new.....during charging, the digital display that normally shows green recuperation and blue motor power displays battery voltage (blue) and charging amps (green) instead. Source is a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kiTdfbtZWXY At the end of the charging process, the gauge...

Re: Range vs. temperature

So far, that jives with what I see on my GOM at -10 to 0 degrees Centigrade. Good graph!

Re: Charging display - or is there one?? 2017/18 e-Golf

Thanks for that - that is the EVSE side. Since one can limit the charging rate in e-manager, it makes sense to believe that the e-Golf itself knows how much juice it draws while charging. Is there no display to cover that info? Just curious. Maybe the German engineers thought sat sis would be confus...

Charging display - or is there one?? 2017/18 e-Golf

Apologies in advance if this is an obvious d'oh. The e-screens in the vehicle menu seem to contain "some" useful information for driving but I am wondering where one accesses charging information. Simple things such as...I am plugged into a Level 1 or 2 charger, what's the current voltage and amps I...

Re: Good practices for longer battery life

I have done extensive reading before I got my 2017. It seems that there are two distinct belief camps out there: 1) pay attention to the charge percentage (as you indicated) and charge to 80%, do not discharge below x% (usually 25 or 15). 2) VW has already taken care of this for you via the battery ...

The same with auto open-close hatch back.
I will re-code the right mirror to make it tilt down when reverse as other one did & post on the other post.
If you post these instructions and part numbers, you will be one of my heros!
