Re: Hold State of Charge Feature for REX i3s

Is there a dongle or OBD scanner you would recommend? I see lots of blue tooth scanners that are pretty cheap.

Thanks for the help!

Re: I3 not following delayed off-peak charging

I am switching the on/off switch not the main power. The relay is rated at 30A which seems high, but the on/off switch is very low power just to enable the charger.

Hold State of Charge Feature for REX i3s

I have a 2015 i3 REX US model which does not have the "hold state of charge" feature enabled.

Does anybody know where I can get the software modified so this feature will work?

I also heard you can get the fuel tank volume increased from ~ 1.8 to 2.2 gallons.

I live in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

I love my i3 but I am lossing my confidance in BMWs electrification.

I am thinking of modifing my current Bosch charger by putting a timer on the on/off switch which I can set to the low cost time from the power company.

Re: I3 not following delayed off-peak charging

My 2015 i3 worked fine for off peak charging for years. Sadly it does not work now. I am not sure what happened. I have a departure time set for 7:50 am daily and Off-Peak Timer set from 11:00 pm to 7:00 am. Also, low cost charging set. There are a little 1 2 with circles around them. I assume that ...
