Re: Remote Control App iOS 15

I've not had an issue. There's a lot of advice in Section E of Richi's FAQ.

Re: BMU Reset

So you fool the car into thinking the battery is better than it is, so it charges and uses the battery in a way that's likely to harm it. Every reset damages the battery even further. Why do you think they use the BMU to reduce the capacity over time? :roll:

Re: I just found out after weeks of constant topping up petrol

I assume from the name that Chelsealady30 is a "she"

Mine cuts the ICE once the battery is mostly full - isn't it 80%?

Re: I just found out after weeks of constant topping up petrol

You do realise that what you've said makes absolutely no sense :roll: You cannot drive the car without it trying to charge the battery once the battery shows empty. Well I guess you could if you knew what you were doing and hacked the various computers that control the car. So assuming you get home ...

Re: 2015 GXh Purchase Concerns

You don't say where you're based, as each country has different setups.

Have a look at Richi's FAQ for loads of information. There's a link in there to a FB page with warranty information for UK PHEVs. Depending on date of registration, 2015 PHEVs could have 5 or 8 years battery warranty

Re: When to use electric park brake?

It does it in our 2015 (manual handbrake) model too. The only way I've found to cut power to the motors is to use the footbrake (or put it in neutral of course).

Re: When to use electric park brake?

While stationary with my foot on the brake, no power is going to the electric motors. I can see it on the dash and selecting neutral has no effect. Why on earth would the designers program a car to waste power? :roll: They have programmed it to start supplying power when the brake pedal is released ...

We think we're lucky if the GOM shows 15 on ours :lol:

Re: When to use electric park brake?

If the car is stationary with your foot on the brake pedal, putting it in neutral has no effect as no power is sent to the motors. You can see this on the dash. It's only when you release the brake pedal that power is sent - again you can see it on the dash.

However, I find it useful to set it at B5 as it brakes fractionally faster when you cancel the ACC.
My 2015 car resets to 'D' when i cancel ACC by braking or pressing the button.
