I suspect “only” is incorrect.
Your 2019 e-Golf 12 V battery didn’t last very long. I wonder why? Maybe by not coding the new battery you will also reduce the lifespan of the new 12 V battery.
My 2017 e-Golf with 52,000 miles has its original 12 V battery. In addition to normal driving I have also jump started four ICE vehicles over the years.
I have read more people on more forums saying that coding isn't necessary and their points sound valid. I'm starting to think they are correct.
My factory battery lasted over three years, which is past the warranty period, and if coding was necessary then it was factory coded. Coding has nothing to do with whether or not my car was coded and a lot more to do with the number of electronics I have plugged into the car abusing the 12v battery.
I am also going to say right now, for anyone reading this, NEVER jump start a car with your e-Golf. I don't mean this offensively, but it will seem that way to you, if you think it's OK to jump start a car with a e-golf then you shouldn't be giving people advice about e-golfs. You've essentially discredited yourself...
