How hard would it be to make this a default setting that you change only when needed, instead of every time you want less than 100%? You'd only need to go into the menu to change the default.
Yes, especially given the occasional hiccup that requires replugging the charging cable. I would probably forget to reset the limit if its duration were only one charging session.

First version is up and working. I had to make some sacrifices in the activation, turns out the steering wheel buttons aren't on the EV-can. So only available info is the HVAC system. I settled on this precondition, recirculation ON and fanspeed at max (7). I chose this combo since it's so unlikely that anyone would ever set it like this. Bonus picture of figuring out the fanspeed on the bus https://i.imgur.com/NISNw0F.png

Here v1.0 in action.

Next step is to add longer delays (was tricky to set correctly with 1s delay), charge options all the way down to 50%, and make the dash charge% represent which selection you finally landed on (since it can be hard with only the capacity bars).

Thoughts?

That would be awesome.

Question; I toggle defrost on and manually adjust to max fan speed all the time. Usually run it 20 seconds to a minute or whatever it takes then turn off and close vent. Closed vent is my normal operation. I am thinking this would not change setting?

When defrost is ON it's not possible to enter this mode, so you're good!

I actually went and made a v1.1
- Increased delay between selections from 1sec to 2sec
- SOC display now shows what option is selected
- Added more options, 50, 58, 66, 75, 83, 92, 100 %

In this example, I set the max charge to 83%

I think this version would be good enough for the most?

Thank you :) I made the code open source so anyone can suggest improvements or make their own based on it.

I don't see why not, atleast on 40kWh models, only unsure about the 62kWh

It isn't very likely that I'll buy my 2018 off lease, but if I do I'll probably install it. What is involved in doing that?

Add a 110% and 125% option for us on the older 24KW/h packs. :mrgreen:

Forgive my ignorance but I’m not following the keystrokes to make this happen.

What buttons are you pushing.

In what order. Etc.
