I mis-read the light. It's just the "security indicator light". Duh me.
Another one of those times where I experience the combination of feeling stupid and relieved at the same time.
Not sure what "fired battery" means, but I'm guessing you meant they used jumper cables to the 12V battery? In which case you either need a new 12V battery, or if you have a battery charger you might try giving the 12V a complete charge though the problem may return. If the 12V is more than a couple of years old I would strongly lean towards replacement.Deansleaf wrote:Car would not start warning “service EV system”. Ticking noise from engine, stuttering rear lights. When I had stopped the battery was at 84%. Breakdown service fired battery and it then started. Once home I restarted it same warning flashed up but this time the car did start.
There's a post on this forum with a replacement part that is MUCH cheaper.itsbrian wrote:Had a fun revelation today after taking my car in due to the Master Warning Light. The water pump needs to be replaced. Goodbye to a grand. Very frustrating. Hardly seems a benefit to have a more simple electric car that still has the same old issues most of my other cars have had.
Years later, your reply just saved me a lot of stress. Happened first time this morning on our 2011, and indeed there had been a power glitch while it was plugged in a few days earlier. Plugged it in again, no more light. Thanks!
