Re: ID3 and 3.0 software update Battery Life

3.0 on my Born is nothing to write home about vs 2.3 I had on my ID3. It was marginally quicker to boot up when I got my Born and then slowed downas soonasI registered the car with the app and battry temperature management doesn't seem to have appreciably improved efficiencies at lower temps (less ...

Re: Has anyone had the 3.0 ota update yet?

Hi i thought i was getting the v3.0 upgrade..... got the recall note for the new 12v battery and the v3 upgrade, contacted VW dealer, was told of another recall to "Apply wax to some sensor connections to prevent corrosion" so booked car in for 2 days. When we collected the car were told ...

Re: 2.4 update and battery replacement

Also the rear camera view seems clearer maybe just me This is one of the improvements VW promised with 2.4 - they basically just said this plus efficiency improvements*. There is also a charging speed improvement for 58kwh batteries and for many people the lagginess seems better, at least to start ...

Re: 2.4 update and battery replacement

Yes, it's the same for everyone. The '0912' indicates you have 2.4 - before it was 0910. VW have said they will aim to update the ID software version number in future updates.... :roll:

Re: Battery lost 20% overnight

Looks to me like a problem with your software route, there is nothing that can make the battery instantaneously lose charge like that and I've never heard of anyone reporting something similar from WeConnectID although that's plausible.

Re: Brand New ID3 Owner

Oh no! Don't get me wrong-I love the ID3, but it can be a bit glitchy. I think I cracked the voice control-most of the time. It seems for certain things, it's pretty word specific. I was asking it "to turn down fan", but it only seems to recognise "turn down blower". But I've no...

Re: 2.4 update and battery replacement

We only took one set of keys to the dealer for our update and both still work, but I've seen at least one other person on the Facebook group saying that their dealers had requested they leave both sets. It might fix it if left in the cupholder with the key symbol for a while? I can't remember the ex...

Re: Longer trip charger booking

Do you actually mean booking slots in advance? Yep - booking in advance. Pretty sure the VW salesman told us that it's a thing. So long since we made the order though, I've possibly remembered it incorrectly. :) Booking rapid chargers in advance is not a thing in the UK. As long as you do a bit of ...

Re: Plan Car Leasing (Deliveries)

Hi, I'm not a plan car leasing buddy, but for info since December 21 no ID3s have been eligible for the grant as from that date it only applied to new orders of cars with rrp<£32k. So if you ordered in April it's not relevant (Max and Tour were above the previous RRP limit of £35k and therefore not ...

Re: Delivery time

It’s come straight from the department of transport! 12 months they’ll only honour. I'm not sure what you expect the DfT to say. They aren't going to give you an individual exception and they aren't going to set a precedent that would then apply elsewhere until/unless the issue is affecting a suffi...

Re: 3.0 Software announcement tomorrow?

I think it sounds like a sensible approach to try to understand what issues may arise before kicking it off more broadly. Hopefully those first few will go well and it will be rolled out further within weeks rather than months. I hope VW still think they can achieve OTA updates without major issues;...

Hi Kevin, Did the issue with your sunblind get resolved? I have the same problem after the 2.4 upgrade which was completed on Thursday 28th July. Another user on here (sidehaas) has reported the same problem (see this post: https://www.id3forums.co.uk/viewtopic.php?p=29549#p29549) but thought it wa...

Re: Wallbox Pulsar Plus Best Amperage Setting for 56kw battery

Hi, received my Family Pro last week and am very happy with it. I had a Wallbox Pulsar Plus installed about a month ago in anticipation of getting the car. Last night I did the first overnight charge between 00:30 and 04:30am as we have just switched to Octopus Go. I set the schedule in the Wallbox...

When I got in it tuesday evening the software was still showing 2.3 and additionally the sunroof no longer works (the button moves it about 1cm about 8 times then it stops and same in other direction - the controls in the computer just says 'Function not available' I said i'd give it another day or...

I wish you luck with that G43FAN but have we heard of anyone who has had the job completed within the one day?
Yes quite a few on the UK ID3 Facebook group. One guy was apparently done in 4 hours. Most seem to be taking overnight though - or at least, booked in overnight to set expectations.

Re: 2.4 update and battery replacement

Some dealers seem to be having more trouble than others. If you have another dealer nearby maybe try them? There seems to be a massive, no gigantic, no Intergallactic difference between dealerships. Some people are getting hampers and gifts for the inconvenience I am in North Wales where after seve...

Do you actually mean booking slots in advance? If so that's not a thing I've heard of. They are all first come first served. Most services have Gridserve chargers which are entirely contactless card operated, there is no app. You can look at live availability data on their website, or via zapmap/wat...

Re: Delivery time

So thagomizer's 3149 order if it arrives will land before big277wave's 3136 order. I just don't have any other explanation for this other than price the dealer or lease company paid. If VW had somewhere we could check the status of each order then it would be much clearer. I wonder why they don't. ...
