You shouldn't need to mess about like that. Just go to WiFi settings, select the car's access point ID, and choose Forget

I have an Android phone and use an app called Automate It. I have it set so that every time the phone connects to the car’s Bluetooth it turns off WiFi, which prevents the phone then connecting to the car’s WiFi and losing internet connectivity. When the phone disconnects from Bluetooth it then turns the WiFi back on again.

Works really well for me.

The same for me

If you do that though, doesn't it mean that you cant then use the app to connect if you want to make changes to the timers ?

Although you are connecting via the app, the phone still needs to recognise the saved WiFi network ?

Yes, it works.

Notice the different instructions for iOS and Android in this page: http://www.mitsubishi-motors.com/en/pro ... jizen.html

On iOS you sign into the car's WiFi using the system WiFi Settings. But on Android you are not asked to do that - instead, enter them into the app the first time it runs. The app registers the access point and after that it selects that access point automatically when the app starts, and deselects it when the app stops. If you sign into it manually in the WiFi settings it won't be able to do that.

When I go into the phone's WiFi settings and look in the "Saved Networks" section, the entry for the car's access point says "Saved by Remote Ctrl". I think this is the key thing. If you signed into the network manually, it probably won't say that. So forget the network and re-run the app. It should prompt for the name & key again, and after that it should work automatically. Well, that worked for me. Disclaimer: I am on Android 6.0.1 on a Motorola phone. Not tested other devices/versions.

Time for a bump, I'm thinking.

I sat in a 100°F/38°C car again today trying to get my LG X-Charge with Android 7.1.1 to connect to the car's wifi router and failed. I did multiple rounds of purging access points, uninstalling the Remote Ctrl 2 program, multiple reboots and the phone simply will not connect. The only consistent error suggests it can't authenticate.

My old LG Volt 2, on the other hand, connected first try in less than 90 seconds from start to finish.

At least now I can run the AC from shore power so I don't burn into the leather seats...and it isn't even summer yet. :lol:

My MY16 car uses the PHEV App (as I only have the 10 digit password and a handbrake lever), but it will not connect using a Samsung S8 with Android 8, I have managed to connect to it using an old tablet (Android 6) with no issues. I have tried every combination of data on/off/ wifi on/off roaming on/off, connect to car first then app, and all other possibilities. On the Samsung the green bar at the bottom of the App does nothing and then it gives an error after a couple of minutes. In frustration I downloaded the PHEV 1 App to my Samsung (16 digit password and handbrake lever) the green bar will run all the way to end and give a configuration error that tells me to use the other App (because I am using 10 digits).

So how do I get a 16 digit password, can I change the original password to 16 digits or does the dealer have to do something?

Once again...

If you are nearby a "remembered" wifi connection, your Android device will switch to that connection midway through the training/connection process.

To prevent this from happening, you have to do that connection process away from your remembered wifi connections or "forget" that connection before you start the app for the first time.

This is why your connection attempt is getting half-way through and then failing.

I can confirm that this was not the problem I had with my Android 7 phone. I completely purged (forgot) all wifi credentials prior to starting. I also turned off the settings to switch access points to stronger signals, etc. The Android 6 phone was connected within 30 seconds while the 7 phone never would connect.
