Re: 94Ah REX - HOLD STATE OF CHARGE Issue

Are you being patient? Sometimes it can take quite a while for it to fire up. At least that's been my experience.

Re: Where do this part belong?

How do you know it was from your car? Was it parked in your garage when you found it? It looks like some sort of protective cushion to keep a tube of some sort from rubbing against something. Was it found near the front or rear of your vehicle? That's where I'd start to look for some sort of clue to...

Re: On the verge of purchasing

Didn't know about the eGolf having different battery sizes depending on the year, I only saw the later model 36kWh number for the later years. Looks like you should see a good improvement in range.

Re: On the verge of purchasing

What range are you getting on your eGolf? It sounds like higher range is a top priority for you and I'm not sure you'll see much improvement, if any with an i3 BEV. Did I miss something in your post that would suggest this is OK?

Re: It’s a cash cow the bad tire scam

In my experience, the passenger rear (19" in my case) had quite a bit more wear. By swapping rear wheels, it would help somewhat to even out the wear and give some more life to the rears. Please see link in my post above for pictures of my last set of tires just before replacing them. I haven't...

Re: It’s a cash cow the bad tire scam

You guys must be having a lot of "fun" with your i3s, I got about 43000 miles out of my last set of tires, mostly freeway driving. The rears were pretty worn out though, passenger side being the worst, fronts not quite as much. If you'd like to see them check this out: https://goo.gl/photo...

Re: 12V battery issue... maybe overcharging issue?

Did you measure the voltage of the battery when removed? Does it remain hot? Wondering if there is an internal short. If it's something in the car that is causing this you won't have better luck with a new battery. Can you have your charging system checked?

Re: $5,000 HV Battery Repair Not Covered by Warranties

Sorry for the trouble you've been having. I have a 2014 Rex with about 74000 miles and i am also getting about 50 miles on a full charge. I'm considering bringing it in to my local dealer for a battery warranty check but not sure it would result in the battery warranty kicking in even though I'm rea...

Re: Car unstable, jerking left and right, swerves

Did turning off the traction control fix the issue under the problematic road conditions? Did you happen to change tires recently? It's probably like something mentioned above but I ran into an issue with the traction control unexpectedly kicking in after I changed only the rear tires on my i3 since...

Re: Yellow PARK light, ABS, brake system error

Glad to hear you are getting your issues resolved. Regarding your tires, make sure they are all properly inflated, the recommended pressures for front and back should be visible on the door frame. Once this is done, perform the TPMS reset procedure as shown in this short video. Hope this solves your...
