Waiting for a flat bed to tow me. The nightmare string of warning lights starting with the traction battery fault I got on the first day I had the car but went away after a charge. This time I’m stuck and can’t even get the car out of park. Not a good start to the week. :(

Oh no! I doubt this helps but did you lock the car and walk the key out of range? (It has helped me get rid of a spurious warning light the other day when a simple lock/unlock didn't work)

Ken, sad news.

If the car does not self reset they should be able to diagnose the problem this time and fix it.

Be sure to request a decent loan vehicle to keep you mobile.

Cheers, Steve

Just tried getting out of car and walking out of range and back. No joy. Had my wife come with a charger even though I knew I had no outlet. The long shot was to just plug into the car’s port to see if that did anything. Again no joy. I can’t even get the car in neutral. I just get a blinking P on the park indicator. Not good.

Still waiting for the tow.

Steve, my concern is that it does reset itself and leaves no codes behind.

Sorry to hear this. Keep the faith. It really is a fun car to own and drive - for most of us, most of the time.

Oh Ken....I am so, so sorry. While my I-Pace has been near perfect for 6 months now....I have had a Range Rover Sport, an X5 and a Rolls Phantom that used to light the dashboard up like a Christmas tree with warning lights and sometimes a service visit would be 30+ days. I know how you feel inside!

I am keeping positive thoughts for you. I ALWAYS try to find a silver lining.....luckily this is happening on a Monday and not a Friday. The dealer has all week to trouble shoot and try and get parts!! Please keep us posted.

Wow Ken, so sorry. I had the same issue with a loaner Land Rover and it was a software problem. You're doing the right thing by getting towed and it shouldn't take long. Other possibility is a bad 12V battery.
I just got a call from my salesman who told me the car had just come into the dealer on the tow truck. He's going to keep an eye on it. I agree about the software issue, but I'd be surprised if it's the 12v battery given that I've driven the car every day but 1 since I've had it. But who knows?

Salesman was very nice and indicated he'd drop off a loaner himself if necessary. I told him if it was just going to be a day or two I would be fine with my wife's car since we're not going anywhere. Otherwise I'd grab a loaner.

Hopefully I'll find out something before the end of the day. Disappointing, but I'm going to operate under the assumption (hopefully not unduly optimistic)

So these were the fun warning lights the car flashed this morning. Did it miss any? Any in its vocabulary it forgot? ;)

Could be a victim of the wiring harness break issue.
Geesh, I hope it’s not that. Looking at the SB, it looks like an involved repair requiring lots of parts. They only mention one warning light for that issue, but I got about 5. They do list 6 diagnostic trouble codes that may be in the PCM module, so who knows.

Right now a 12v battery sounds better and a software fix better still.

As I think about it, I wonder if that occasional hard brake with the need to push the start button twice could be related?

Has anyone tried to trickle charge the 12V battery? I'm getting some error messages (high voltage fault, charging system fault, electrical fault) and wondering if a low battery charge is the cause....

I recall one person doing that for a problem and was able to get the car functioning again enough to get it to a dealer. That may not give a permanent solution, though.
There are two 12V batteries. A big one (right side of car) and a small one (left side and harder to get at).

Either or both of them could be low on charge/faulty (best case situation) or the broken harness (there are varying number of faults based on which wires break) as a worse case situation.
