Re: Precondition/departure not selectable

Or as an alternative, login to the connected drive website and you can set it up using the remote cockpit section of that. I think as Jim says, you can’t enable a timer until you have selected one or more days of the week and a time. I don’t think this part of the software is particularly intuitive ...

Re: Precondition/departure not selectable

Ditto that, precondition for departure refers to battery and cabin and needs a departure time set to enable it.

Re: App showing doors unlocked when not

The app status was fine and updating. It was the rear door issue that was causing it. Obviously, I wouldn’t and don’t drive the car with the dashboard error showing but I was surprised that it reported as the doors not being locked. The car locks fine in this condition and how would you know if the ...

App showing doors unlocked when not

Just a glitch I think but I left the car today and locked it. Happened to be looking at the app later and saw that the doors were showing as unlocked. So I sent a lock command to the car. Successful but no change in status. Sent it again, again successful but no change in status. Went out to the car...

Re: 2017 Bmw I3 Rex question

You can get your spec by putting the last 7 digits of you VIN number into this website and pressing DECODE! https://www.bmwvin.com I think from memory that the lighting options were associated with one of the interior packages but can't be sure of that. If you've got them, they should come on when y...

Re: Freezing weather performance

Bearing in mind that it’s not just cabin heating and battery charging. If you set a departure time for preconditioning and the battery temp is below 10c, the car will also try to raise the battery temp to 10c.

All three loads are surely beyond the capacity of an L1 hence the low SoC levels.

Re: Fan noise when pulling away

Could it be the pump pressurizing the REx's gas tank? It wouldn't need to run very long, but if your tank was essentially empty, the air in there will expand and contract more than just the gasoline, and could run longer. It would also be more prevalent when there's a big temperature change. Don’t ...

Re: Fan noise when pulling away

I’ve recently noticed this too. The symptom is very similar to your description but if I keep the stereo off, I notice it at other times too. A definite relay switch from around the glovebox area switching something that makes a kind of quiet distant whirring sound from somewhere in the rear floor. ...

There’s a clear plastic one with lid that fits perfectly, I’ve got one to house the contents of my frunk that I want to keep dry. There’s also room for the Type 2 alongside it.

Re: Weather-proofing the Frunk

I understood there was a key reason for it not being weatherproof. It’s the storage location for the Type 2 cable which is inevitably stowed wet on occasions. Weatherproof means a wet cable stowed in it would render the contents permanently damp. Try stowing your wet Type 2 in the boot on a cold nig...
