The car was still plugged in when you started it, and it was warning you about that.

Re: 79% charge limit / CarWings / ConnectEV app

There is also the Climate Control Monkey option: train someone in your house to run out to your car on command and turn it on for you. My housemate will do that for me, within reason.

Re: Bits & Pieces

I tried to explain that this is the exception for cases where avoiding physical damage is the situation, not mandated conduit, but trolls on a rampage don't always read so well. Anyway, back in the filter with that one. If he continues with this behavior, let me know. Life is too short, as they say....

Re: Bits & Pieces

He has to derate the wire ampacity to 80% from the 90C column for THHN because he is running 4 - 6 current carrying conductors in conduit. If you are going to randomly berate people for random reasons, at least try to get your facts straight. I ran one 10-3 (+G) cable and one 12-2 (+G) cable. That'...

Welcome. Yes, that's a standard 12 volt starting battery. If you plan to keep the car, I suggest replacing it with a 12 volt automotive AGM battery, as they are more robust.

Re: Bits & Pieces

I told you - the conduit was just to protect the cable from physical damage. It was going to be passing through a storage loft. The original plan was just NM cable (which I had bought years ago) for the rest of the run, but my housemate as uneasy with that. Even if I didn't have the cable already, I...

Re: The battery replacement/buyback thread.

How about a little cool-off, folks?My take on extended warranties is that if you can get a decent one cheap (less common but possible) AND you plan to keep the car, it's cheap peace of mind.
