Re: A/C sticker shock

Per the service rep- it is a closed loop electrical system and you cant just unplug it. In my head...and that's a dangerous place...much like a wall outlet, or even your electric dryer outlet there is power going to the outlet at all times, that's why the make little safety plugs for outlets so kids...

Re: A/C sticker shock

I think I shorted out the dealership.

I asked if
A) the A/C compressor could be disconnected
B) if they could do it
That was 5 hours ago and haven't heard back from them yet.

A/C sticker shock

5 months in to owning and loving my little "Evie" I got the dreaded RBS, exclamation point warning lights on the dash.

Car towed to dealer.

Dealer says its an internal A/C issue, looking at over $3500 to replace the A/C compressor.

Any suggestions?

Anybody need a parts car?

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

Used the app today.

Followed my sequence and Evie charged just fine.

I work for the city and the city runs the 2 chargepoint stations downtown and offers free charging to anyone.

I worked and charged today it was a double bonus day.
