Re: HELP!!! My B250e is dead

I've not experienced this in my B but that sounds like a main fuse in the 12v system.

Re: Hello from Portugal (my PM reply stuck in Outbox)

Joao-

This has been a small number of vehicles with that issue and most seem to be the earlier cars. There is no way to know if a car will experience this issue unfortunately. I have 44k miles and have had no problems with my car.

Re: Charging speed only charges at 3.9kw

Have you tried to charge it with no time of day restrictions? Maybe there is some conflict with the settings. With my EVSE, I get around 25 miles/hr charge. Otherwise, something is limiting it. Probably something in the software is off, or sensing a reason to slow the rate.

Re: Charging speed only charges at 3.9kw

Sorry.. I see you have already checked the settings. Could you have a setting in your EVSE that needs adjusting? Have you used the EVSE with other vehicles? Even if the EVSE is 7kw, it's still limited by the capacity of the circuit it's plugged/wired into.

Re: Charging speed only charges at 3.9kw

These definitely have a 10kw on board charger as I regularly see that with my EVSE. You may want to go into the settings to see if you have it limited to 3.9kw. There is an option to do that. Sorry, I don't remember exactly which menu, but it's in one in the instrument cluster, not the center console.

Re: She's Gone (hall & oates)

Happy Travels! I've looked at the XC40 (non- recharge) and found it to be VERY nice. I suspect the EV version will only make it better. Sad that to this day we still have so few choices.

Re: 2017 Options & Standard Features

Yes, it seems like they omitted several things for 2017, but I don't have a list. I'm bummed they never offered the panoramic sunroof that you can buy on other B class vehicles in other markets. That would make my 2016 just about perfect.

Re: Heated windshield replacement??

The heated windshield does have a pink hue to it and is included in the range package. If it's pink, it's heated. There is no separate button for it, it operates with the defrost. Personally, I've found the climate control in the B to be superior to any other vehicle I've owned (including other MB),...

Re: First time ChargePoint Home Flex charging for 97 miles

If you have not selected Range option, it will only charge to 80%. I suspect the "added" range is an artifact that will adjust itself after driving for awhile. The range estimator is just that, an estimator. I've seen lots of different estimates based on driving mode, climate control use, last drive...
