    Comfort 2, HVAC and?

    Yes. It is confusing. I will have the 1st service in a few months and I think I will arrange then to have all software updates reviewed then.

    Comfort 2, HVAC and?

    On this particular issue, I think it is not the fault of the Tech staff or the dealerships. I am not sure how extensive MG tested the ZS EV BMS software against the european charge point providers. It seems all the issues we are having with charging is due to poor car software to charger...

    @kiltox Thanks for the video. I think MG really has a problem with the BMS delayed charging, charging with doors open issue. I do not understand why it seems several of us have our ZS EV behaving differently after this update. My ZS EV will on AC with doors open but one has to lock and wait for...

    Comfort 2, HVAC and?

    @kiltox Thanks. When using this type of pod-point at Tesco mine does not start charging when I just plug it in. I have to lock the car first only then do I hear the clicks of the plugs getting locked in and charging begins. Thereafter if I open the door after a minute of two it will continue...

    @kiltox How do you start the charge on this pod-point. The one I use will only start with activation from the car and the only way I know how to do that is lock the doors and wait for a minute of two before unlocking again.

    Does only charging on Rapids affect the MG ZS EV battery life?

    @Orcadian ZS EV does the job fine for all old codgers and those withbmobility problems alike. Very comfortable and enjoyable to drive. The charging advice given is absolutely correct. In the past I may have been advocating one or the other stricter charging regimes and I will still advocate...

    @simpa I am not sure. I think several members have had issues with rolec so someone more knowledgeable may answer your questions on rolec. From what I know about HV fuse it addresses an issue with certain Rapid chargers found mainly in Scotland. Apparently the ZS EV will shut down all systems...

    Comfort 2, HVAC and?

    @kiltox That is very good. In my case, I usually use pod point free chargers and there does not seem to be any way of initiating charging with the non-tethered fast 7kW chargers except by locking the doors to initiate the charge. After my BMS update my charging kept failing if I unlocked the car...

    @CDR and @simpa I believe there has been only one BMS update and a separate HV fuse update. To the best of my knowledge @Skippy is right about charging on AC with the doors unlocked. I think it depends on the type of charger but for most types of AC chargers the doors have to be locked to...

    MG ismart software europe...is is coming??

    Very interesting reply from MG. The impression I get about most of the UK local MG dealers is that owners have to bring updates to their attention and it seems they struggle to deal with issues about the updates. Well at least MG claim they are working to make things better so I guess it is...

    My sincerest apologies to all AOPs for the using my fellow pensioners data as an example in this thread. It was not meant to be ageist or an insult to those who are not of that age. It is only an example. @GrahamH As to comments you have attributed to me about vegans and Oxfordshire. I have...

    @Phil Hayward Is that not like an Ostrich burying it's head in sand when there is danger? Hope members do not pick up such habits leads to more trouble.

    Stuart, Thanks for the great work you are putting into keeping the forum in "tip-top" shape. I know this can be very time consuming and I believe all the members greatly appreciate this. If I may politely ask, I will ask if an element of politeness curation can also be brought to bear...

    @Phil Hayward Yes that is the video from India. I think despite the guy clearly stating his drive was not to challenges the official range claims of MG at the very beginning of his video, the video may have had a slightly negative effect as MG India now had to start explaining to customers why...

    MG ismart software europe...is is coming??

    My understanding is that the issue is not with MG. It apparently is with the IT authorities in Europe and the pressure they are under to stop Chinese Tech operating in Europe. I believe the Chinese may have considered using an European IT provider but the European IT authorities will not still...

    Home charging help Bp Chargemaster MG ZS EV

    I do not charge at home as I am one of "free charging" gang but I did ask an EV expert who also happens to work for MG and he advised that the delayed charge function works from 90secs after an instruction to charge (ie the maximum time it takes for the ZS EV on board system to reset) to...

    Let’s see who gets rattled - charging details

    @Phil Hayward, I think there may be a guy from India who has done more miles on a single charge than BN did in this video. The Indians drove only in daylight hours to avoid the issue of night efficiency drop and also for safety reasons. I think their speed was also more steady with only single...
