I wondering if your car's main headlights are always on? It seems to me that they are... no matter if it's sunny outside or at night... when I try to turn them off by holding the parking lights, they turn on again after hitting 25km/h or so...

Aslo, anyone got their mobile charger wifi to connect to their home wifi? I tried for a hour and it just would not connect...tried on the charger and on the web portal via it's hotspot...
Try resetting the mobile charger connect to defaults and run the set up wizard again. Had a customer with the same issue and it was able to connect after that

As for the lights, Porsche has made new models always default to "Auto" lights especially while driving which is a good thing so you won't see them on the road with no lights on at night anymore.

In day you should only see the 4 point DRL on and at night the middle "low beam" comes on creating almost an "X" pattern on each light

Thanks. I did reset to factory settings and still no joy. Maybe a faulty unit - do I bring it in to test and / exchange for anther? I'll check out the lights again in the daytime and see if the main headlights are on or not.. Thanks.

Hi HCPro,

I had dropped off my charger at your shop today to get them to look at it.. they said they updated the firmware, so I hope that fixes the problem.

I'll be picking up the charger later today... would be interesting to see another Taycan to see how the seatbelt should auto tighten as it doesn't on my car...

My charger also connected OK. Strange.

My headlights are off during the day, only the array of 4 rectangles are on. At night, if I manually turn off the headlights, they will automatically come back on at the 20-25 km/h or so, as you have described. Probably a safety feature.

The seatbelt for my 4s doesn’t auto tighten or tighten at all.

Thedaytime I have the 4 point running daytime running light and at night the 4 point plus the middle light on.

I have a question, can you guys look under your front seats and see if there is a cover? My seats don’t have a cover and the wires under the seat are exposed. Are your seats the same? (I have the 14 way seats) I also have a macan and have a cover (storage) under my front seats.
Thanks

I figured out the wifi issue with my charger. It apparently doesn’t like WPA2 security. Only works with WPA. Got another router setup and it works. But the strange thing is that my iPhone hotspot didn’t work before too. But it works now, perhaps the firmware update fixed that.

I checked my lights and noticed that the 4 points LED‘s only turn on in the day. Noticed it in the reflection of the car in front of me. I can also tell when the ambient light turns on, the headlights also should be On.

Took the tech out in my car and definitely no seatbelt auto tightened confirmed. He was sure all Taycans should have it. We tried another 4S, and it didn’t have it either. Service advisor will check the VIN’s of both cars and others to see why some have and some don’t. Should be a standard feature. Strange. Anybody else?

I have a plastic cover under my seats. Cannot really see any wiring.

This is my seat. It doesn’t seem like it can fit a cover?

Ready for winter! Prepped and ceramic coated the wheels last night prior to mounting. Thanks to my team at Porsche Centre Vancouver (@HCPro) for getting me setup for the colder months. I'm very pleased with the look of these 20s on my car.

Definitely need spacers with these wheels! I have 12/10mm spacers on order from ECS, but they didn't arrive in time for the install today.
