RE: End of Charge heating
Apologies if I am mixing up your reply, No time should come up on the small info LCD (in front of steering wheel) unless
the timer button is hit once or twice (any time up to 24 hours earlier) when you turn of the ignition and remove the key.
Assuming we are talking about the same thing, the time that comes up on the screen when you leave the car is a target
time +/_ 15 minutes.
If you select 7.00am as your target time the system will wake approximately 6.00 am and the yellow Auto light on the climate control will illuminate, depending on the ambient temperature it may start immediately or it could start after 10/15 minutes.
The temperature should be getting close at 6.45/6.50am, it will then maintain the temperature up to approximately 7.15am.
If the drivers door does not open before the system shuts down at approximately 7.15am the system will retry the following morning, If the power is even briefly interrupted at any point while this is going on the procedure will terminate and may try again the following morning.
Also be aware some public charging points (usually pre 2011) will not re-engage after a charge has been completed for
thermal management or pre-heating the cabin as they can lose the authorisation originally received when swiping your
card. this can effect the Fluence if the car tries to ask for energy to cool the pack after charging like if a strong sun comes out late in the day, this does not effect the cooling if the car has been cooling before the charge has ended.
However this can be a pain if coming home from work on a freezing evening to find you have a cold car because the charge finished hours earlier.
