I picked up our ID.4 FE on 3/24/21 and have been trying to get a functional home charging schedule.
I've set the parameters as follows:
1) Charge Immediately to 20%
2) Max Charge to 80%
3) Departure time to 7:00am
The first two or three days, I'd plug in the charger around 8:00pm on the night before, make sure all was good (charging port led was pulsing green), and go away until the next morning when I'd return and the unit only charged about 10-15 minutes and was "done" but no where near 80%
Doing some research, I found that each and every time I (or my spouse with her key fob) walked near the ID after 8:00pm, it would charge for 2-3 minutes and quit. Wait.. WHAT? We had a 'discussion' about touching the car, fiddling with the charging port, pressing a fob button, etc. - all not very productive. We noticed that after a few minutes, the charge port led would go out and if we walked nearby with the fob, the ID and the charger would click-click-click and the led would go back to green pulsing.
So, 2 nights ago, I did the same preparation around 8:00pm: checked the scheduling, checked the charge cable plugged in properly, checked the ID doors were locked, AND THEN.. I PUT BOTH OF THE FOBs AT THE OTHER END OF THE HOUSE.
We each checked the car a couple of times during the night (we don't want it driving around the neighborhood without us
) and all seemed good and quiet.
Next morning, the car had charged! First day it underestimated the needed time to get to 80% and the second day it got there a few minutes early.
We now have a FOB-free zone around the ID when we want it to charge on a schedule.
Anyone else seen this behavior?
Is there some other setting that I'm missing that ignores the presence of the fob when a charging schedule is set and the ID is plugged in?
BTW - just in case it matters, I'm using a Chargepoint Flex as the EVSE but I do NOT have any schedule or charge settings turned on for that at this point (just using it as a dumb EVSE)
Ideas? What have I missed?
Thanks for any suggestions.
