    Issues with car post WLG2 Campaign software updates and 12v battery

    HAHAHAHAHAHHAHA. that is hilarious. unfortunately, the service guy at my dealership would not know how to plug an EA charger into the car if I showed him. That is what we are dealing with. Heck, most of the sales guys have never seen a Taycan used at an EA location. If they did, and saw...

    Issues with car post WLG2 Campaign software updates and 12v battery

    I just picked up my 4s at the shop again yesterday after having it checked why I was getting electrical system warnings while on a 400 mile road trip, and a broken drivers side charge port. They did not mention anything about any new campaigns while I was there. Just as an aside, the...

    Issues with car post WLG2 Campaign software updates and 12v battery

    I am starting to believe my 4s was built on a Friday at 4:15pm - you know, the last one on the line on a Friday just before everyone clocks out for the weekend and is eager to get out of work. The good news is that I have not had anymore electrical warnings since my long road trip on...

    Issues with car post WLG2 Campaign software updates and 12v battery

    thank you for sharing. I would recommend doing a longer road trip to see if there are any after affects for your vehicle from the updates. I drove around town today for a couple of hours and did 50 to 60 miles - ironically, I did not get a single error message. Since I did 400 miles...

    Issues with car post WLG2 Campaign software updates and 12v battery

    So, today I took a 400 road trip through the Colorado mountains to see how the car behaved after the 12v battery replacement and software updates I received last week. Mechanically, the car preformed without any issues, but I received repeated electrical system errors on the dash when I would...

    Electrify America Poll

    It was an up and down road trip today. 400 miles through the Colorado mountains and lots of epic views. I charged up at the Frisco Electrify Location twice today - the site is working now after EA performed maintenance on it a couple of weeks ago. The Glenwood Springs locations was...

    Electrify America Poll

    My challenges with Electrify America are the slooooooooooooooow charging speeds. In the 10 times I have used an EA charger, have have only gotten above 75kw in charging speeds once. While the servicing team is phenomenal in their response, they can do nothing about charging speeds. I am...

    Sirius/XM radio question

    Thanks for sharing, and good to know I am not alone. It is certainly an unexpected benefit, so I will just enjoy and not overthink it.

    Sirius/XM radio question

    It is not so much "rewind," but the Taycan automatically starts whatever song happens to be playing on Sirius/XM from the beginning. The Cayenne has the ability to manually do that, so I was wondering if it was a setting I might have set up with the Taycan unknowingly. thanks

    Sirius/XM radio question

    So, this might be a weird question, but I have Sirius/XM radio in both my '20 Taycan and my '19 Cayenne. In the Taycan, if I change the station it will play the current song from the beginning, while if I change the station in my Cayenne, it will play song where it might be at the particular...

    Porsche Intelligent Range Manager Worth having?

    Bill: The Plug Share app and A Better Route Planner app are essential to helping make your journey smoother. I have owned EV's for 5 years, and those two apps have been huge benefits on road trips. It would be great if you provided feedback on the Electrify Chargers you use in the Plug Share...

    WLG2 Campaign -- software updates

    With that, I think we have officially beaten the OTA subject to pieces now. I think I speak for everyone when I say that it will be great when Porsche rolls out full OTA capability, but until then, it does not take anything away from being a Taycan owner. I am on day 2 of having the WLG2...

    Porsche Intelligent Range Manager Worth having?

    I think the feature is pretty Meh as currently working. You can do the same or better with the Plug Share app and the A Better Route Planner app.. I think the Youtube videos of the guy driving from Norway to Malaga, Spain provide a good overview of the feature's weaknesses.

    WLG2 Campaign -- software updates

    Mine 4s was built in March. So, based on when my car was built, and yours being built in June, it would seem that there was a cut off in May sometime. Newer builds getting the new software package, and then a roll out to vehicles build earlier in the year. From the paper work I have, and Don...

    WLG2 Campaign -- software updates

    Don, as always, thank you for your insight. OTA's are a "nice to have" for me, and that is about it. More importantly, I really am hoping the updates I got yesterday, and you got today, will take care of the 12v battery issues we experienced. Guess we will find out!!

    WLG2 Campaign -- software updates

    Don: thank you for the insight. So, based on what you are saying the legacy car manufacturers who are starting to dabble in EVs will have a very tough time being able to offer OTA since their business, and their vehicles, is built/engineered around updates being done manually at a dealership...

    WLG2 Campaign -- software updates

    Most us would be toast without this forum. Knowledgable members, like Don, know more about the car than 98.5% of the Porsche service managers in the field right now. Most dealerships only have one tech that is certified to work on a Taycan. It will be an up and down experience for us owners...

    Don Breaks His Taycan - The Saga of the 12v Battery

    The campaign Don is describing is the WLG2 campaign. I had it installed on my 4s yesterday while they were replacing my defective 12v battery. I can share a PDF of the paperwork, if anyone would like to see the list of control parts that were updated.

    WLG2 Campaign -- software updates

    Let us know what the response is, since I am curious to know if it applies to all Taycan's, or just a certain few. This is where it would have been great if Porsche had enabled over the air updates - owners could have done this at home, and not had to have made a trip to a dealership...
