Re: i3 charging LED broken?

This is the part:

As you can see on one of the pictures, there is an electrical connector on the back.
Possible it got disconnected?

Re: Fob problem

A new and unused FOB battery (CR2032) should show approx. 3.3 Volts when you test it with a voltmeter (outside the FOB - with nothing connected other than the voltmeter). At 2.85V the battery is considered completely empty - that would explain your message that the battery is low (at 2.95V) ! My bes...

Re: Remote Key fob battery discharging problem w. Easy access

My 2017 I3 is also equipped with comfort access and the batteries in both my fobs are now 3 years old. The car gets used frequently (approx. 52k Km now) and no sign that the batteries need to be replaced. Same result with a similar I3 of a friend of mine. The life you are getting out of your batteri...

Re: All the Malfunctions...

To make sure the car is in sleep state (and stays there), you have to: - open the frunk (that is where the HV safety connector is, but this will also wake up the car) - wait until it goes back to sleep - but how do you know it has gone back to sleep? The German Manual states to wait at least 2 minut...

Re: All the Malfunctions...

Did you try to disconnect and then re-connect the HV system?
This could also trigger a reset of the ECU's!

Re: Engine check light

Very smooth move by the dealership :-) In order to justify the pump replacement (which didn't solve the problem and was probably comletely unecessary) , they diagnose that the "faulty" pump damaged the relais. What a load of BS :-) :-) :-) But I guess there is no way to prove that they are making th...

Re: Engine check light

When you mention they refuse to replace the "fuel pump sensor" - I hope you are not referring to the fuel pump relay that sits next to the fuses (under the glove box)? To change that sucker is step numero uno whenever you have any REX issues. People have swaped out complete engines to find the relay...

Re: Range Vs mileage Vs charging speed?

Aloha Art, by charging the car to only 90% you don't allow the Battery Management System to perform the cell balancing that normally occurs when the battery is full. This is essential, because not all cells are absolutely the same. This could explain your very high degradation rate at relatively low...
