Anything to do with the glove box heating/cooling? Just a WAG.

Ours IS a First Edition. Maybe your car had to be red. [IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.i-paceforum.com/forum/images/I-PaceForum/smilies/tango_face_devil.png[/IMG]
I really need to see what this looks like. The cup holders pop out, so I am interested in learning how that works.

I'll add:


Positives: (1) side mirror welcome lights (I thought they were optional upgrade); and

(2) very cool small exterior dimensions + good-sized interior dimensions -- still impresses me. Squashed rear window looks positively stealthy.



Fake-Negative: car drives so well, and I enjoy driving so much, I could utilize a larger range (but I'll be fine).

Worst is 28 days in service at Cole European for battery charge fault repair!!!
Back this week and love affair rekindled. Amusing to meet 3 battery engineers at Cole service last friday. They came there straight off the plane as evidenced by the pile of luggage next to my car. Cole totally detailed my ride and corporate is reviewing my claim for compensation due to loss of use for entire 2nd month of ownership.
2 more days in service and qualified as a LEmon with buyback or trade assured by corporate. I declined the disruption as even at 28 days it was a possibility.

Mirror lights on the e-pace (loaner for 28 days) have too cute outlines of adult and cub jaguars!! same on windshield. Light circle is smaller than I-pace but I want that. Steve

Were they able to tell you what was the cause and fix for the charging fault? Mine has been at the dealer for almost 2 weeks as it will not charge. Whatever they do charging indicator flashes red and indicates error in charging.

Wow, would have loved to talk to the battery engineers. 28 days in service!? That's nuts, I wouldn't be okay waiting that long. What was the resolution?

I am waiting for my copy of the detail service record the dealer sends in for getting warranty $ back, and will post here soon.

The engineers suggested sticking to authorized charging systems (sold as an option) or chargepoint system as the only ones verified by their factory testing. Too conservative to be practical solution for me. My Bosch level 2 has worked fine (for my Volt over 2 years too). They suspect my aftermarket 20 foot extender cord ($200, from end of charger to vehicle) was possibly adjusting resistance in the STOCK 110v charger when I tried it twice. The timing of the fault doesn't quite match that event, but who knows. No extender cords or translation from tesla network recommended.

charging failure cause (so far);
Aux battery t4k4462 failed, replaced traced down to bad fuse in converter t4k6510, replaced.
Also new module - battery t4k8506, antifreeze, 1 harness & 6 clips

Hope your resolution is faster than mine. Steve
