CHARGE TIME

Wed Apr 13, 2011 10:06 pm

I had to look all over to find out why the car time to charge was an hour off the CLOCK in the car.

I finally found the CHARGE time is from the clock in the Navigation system. Once I updated that both are in sync and times are correct.

PS I always charge after 11 PM to help my utiltiy, they have excess at night Off PEAK.
I also only charge to 80% to help make the battery last longer, 8 yr/100K to maybe 16 yr/200K

I had the same problem. It's was caused by the fact that the clock in the Nav system was not supporting Daylight Savings time.
