Re: 1,000kms in 5 days

Yes, in Australia it is usually a standard Type2 23kW three phase 3x32amp.
Occasionally some of them are single phase.

Re: 1,000kms in 5 days

It should. I built my own but I have not yet tested it because nowhere nearby. It is there as a backup. However, I have never been so stuck that I desperately needed to use J1772 so it just sits in the boot. It is quite small, less than 1metre long as the J1772 has a flying lead cable.

Re: Cannot connect to live services

Hi Tom, I had engine off all the way through the update! The charge cable thing impacted one other person on the Renault forum. I had removed it as I was running out of ideas but nice to have confirmed it was a major problem. I have just now prompted Renault on Connected Services and also asking why...

Re: 1,000kms in 5 days

Hi Tom, I am embarrassed to say I have not checked them so they are whatever they were when delivered! On my to-do list. I have a range of charging options. That which I use the most is my OpenEVSE three phase 22kW charger in conjunction with the Zoe Type2 cable One amp increments 6-32A and three ph...

Re: Cannot connect to live services

Hi Tom, Yes, I would have thought the service people should have done your update. perhaps they are car people and not very IT oriented? The symptoms of the problem were not glaringly obvious. The lack of the clock was the main thing, but because the Navigation was unaffected it was of little import...

Hi Tom, Prompted by your email, I went to that link again and VERY carefully entered my VIN again. This time, I got the update to download instead of "there is no update for your vehicle".

Re: Cannot connect to live services

Hi Tom, I am surprised you had to do an update for the GPS rollover bug. That bug should only affect quite old GPS systems from well before Zoe!

When I enter my Zoe VIN it says I do not need any updates. I assume when you entered your VIN it said you did need an update.........

Agreed. But I wanted to demonstrate how one can sit on the speed limit and still make viable journeys outside the cities.....and without driving a ute. I now know that returning from Canberra to Sydney, if I start at 100%, I can simply add 30mins from the 22kW charger at Bendooley and comfortably ma...

Re: Cannot connect to live services

All those functions and the Renault Store have worked since day 1 (but not for the past 5 days) on our Zoe. So you should definitely have them. Likewise with software updates- have you been able to do them? However there have not been any software updates (at least for our car) since last year. So y...

Cannot connect to live services

My Zoe has developed a problem. The time is missing and the various options that can normally be used to set it are greyed out. Speed cameras are no longer accessible nor is TomTom Live. So traffic delays also do not show. These things all show "Cannot connect to live services- try again later". How...

Re: First Zoe Service!

The Zoe firmware does report when it believes the battery needs replacement. Looking at European and UK forums I really do not think there is a12v battery problem and the only arguments seem to be about replacement of batteries based on service intervals and battery replacement just before and just ...

A number of us have CanZE. It has a special section for the 12V battery showing volts, amps, graph, voltage under load (which is a good health indicator), recommendations on replacement et al.

Re: First Zoe Service!

I understand from UK forums that you only have trouble with the 12v battery if the are lots of very short trips. It is charged from the DC:DC converter 400 -> 12v. Also in the UK I understand it is under warranty for at least 2yrs which is similar to the normal warranty on lead acid batteries. Cheer...

Re: First Zoe Service!

I think that if they replace your 12V battery within 3 years then it would be covered by warranty?

Re: First Zoe Service!

Thanks for the service update. My SOH was 101% when I got the car about 9 months ago and now it is 100%. If you have CanZE, you can easily get it yourself. The advantage of the service people getting it is that hopefully then you will have an official hard copy record. A bit puzzling they were vague...

Hi Lou, Great information, very well presented. I remember when you said you were getting the wheel so good that it worked out.

Re: Zoe Regen getting weaker

Antiscab, is the regen weaker all the time or just after sustained downhill on very hot days?

Are you still getting the same range out of a charge?

IS your SOH still around 100%?

Re: Zoe Regen getting weaker

Pretty warm in Sydney too. Our "mileage" did drop somewhat when it was 40+ outdoors but fully in line with 1-2kw going into the aircon and lots of stop-start driving. Heat could definitely affect regen in that charging amps would be reduced when the battery is hot. But perhaps antiscab has looked at...

Re: Zoe Regen getting weaker

Our regen still gets up to 43kw. Even when 100%, we still get 22kW+ presumably because of the built-in headroom.

Our SOH dropped from 101% to 100% in the first 5,000kms.

Re: Is the Renault Zoe Warranty Voided If Used With A Non Renault Z.E. 1.4 Certified Charging Station?

I just realised something. I successfully charged my Zoe from a single phase Tesla charger at Dee Why RSL in Sydney a couple of months ago. This was before I knew anything about phases/neutrals on Tesla chargers. So either that EVSE is not connected in an unusual way or Zoe can handle it! The chargi...
