Relays clicking away, charger comes on and then 5 seconds later the fans come on. About 10 seconds after that the ‘ping’ and [!] on the dash comes up, however the car charges up perfectly happily to 100%.
So the local dealer is escalating my request to Renault to find out what they actually need to do to get a capacity check. Apparently the Zoe test shows up battery capacity in Kw, where as the Twizy doesnt.
I know the battery charges to 100% and then rolls back a couple of %.
API states that it settles at about 99.2% so that is good enough for me, and indicates that the SoH is 99%. After 14,000 miles, that seems pretty spectacular (unless it has had a battery replacement with previous owner).
I thought the 12v was only charged when plugged in to the mains on the 1st generation. I thought the 2nd generation was different and charged the 12v whilst driving.
Task for this evening is to get it back up on the ramps and have another look under it.
Main question, is there any risk to the car/battery if I continue to drive it with this intermittent fault pinging up?
