Art, I haven't put a meter on the battery yet, but the last one that happened was right after being plugged in overnight on the charger. I know I'm not supposed to trust my display, but it is showing my 12v battery was fully charged when it happened last.alohart wrote:Did you check the 12 V battery?jlangham wrote:Some said that it had to do with the 12v battery, so went out, clicked the remote LOCK - it locked!

The symptoms could be explained by a weak 12 V battery. Whenever an i3 is being actively charged (as opposed to just plugging in an EVSE with a fully-charged battery pack), the 12 V battery is being charged also. So a while after each charging session, your 12 V battery's voltage is high enough for the car to function correctly. However, after sitting for a while, the 12 V battery discharges to the point where errors are set and thinks don't work correctly.
Of course, the problem could be something totally different…
I'll ask the dealer if they put in a new battery since this is a CPO. If not, I'll see if I can get them to put one in based on this issue.
