So I turned both off a few months ago and my mental state is much happier. I was leaving notes for myself on if my timer was on and if I was 80% or 100%, and was always double checking. Plus I dreaded explaining to my wife how to adjust these details should she need to charge. Now if I find a free charger in the wild I just plug in and it fills up to 100%, and if I charge at home I can always adjust the charge time and percent with my JuiceBox.
There is a timer override button on the dash for just that purpose. Just press that until the center blue light goes on (on the dash). Then it doesn't matter what you have set for the timer (overnight charge / 80% / etc). The car will immediately charge to 100%. Easy.
Yes on your '11 and '12 but not '13 and '14 where the 80% option is separate from the charge timer and just pushing the timer-override button won't change a 80% setting to 100%, you need to actually change the separate setting to 100% to get 100% charging
Really? Never knew that.
