I have setup my OVMS on my MG ZS EV, version: 3.2.015-122-g5a31ab79/ota_1/main (build idf v3.3.2-881-g22d636b7b Sep 29 2020 07:07:26)
Since plugging OVMS in - it’s awesome I get all the stats etc., however started noticing some weird behaviour…
Occasionally (1 in 5 times or so) charging cable will not be released when the car is unlocked. Lock/unlock several times usually sorts it, however not always. Waht seems to do the trick are two other options: turn off power supply to the connected cable (may be coincidental as once the car has been unlocked it’s no longer charging), or get in the car, press start to turn on and that seems to trigger cable unlock. I first thought it was MG issue, almost got to a point of ringing them, but then:
Once - I unlock the car, cable stuck, lock/unlock several times, nothing. Turn off charger power - nothing, get in the car, press start and all I get is one of green lights on start button, dark gray screen on the audio and dash, no power to 12v socket (dashcam makes a noise when it’s on), no power to USB sockets, cable still locked. Sits like that for about 10 seconds, I think uh oh… however as soon as I unplug OBD cable with OVMS - everything springs into life - cable unlock, music plays, dashcam turns on etc. Very weird… Feels like something was forced asleep and nothing woke it up.
Wife reported she has seen Motor failure pop up in large letters across the dash for a few seconds when the cable was not released and she’s gone to turn on ignition, that though disappeared a few seconds later, cable got released and she was off.
Anyone else experienced anything along those lines? Starting to doubt whether having it plugged in is a good idea atm as wife is mostly driving it and it’s ok when it happens at home - I can quickly pop away from my conf call and help her out, it would be different somewhere in town or worse further away.
I also noticed that both trip meters always reset, I believe this is a known version though. Would be nice if they didn’t
