I’d risk buying a new battery and trying it, put the old one back on if it makes no difference.ELray wrote: ↑Sun Aug 23, 2020 10:55 amOh what a sad story! I’m in the same boat. Lately I’ve had 4 brake downs due to low 12V. The 12V battery will not keep its charge very long, but when it’s fully charged, the crank test on the battery is good. This gives the dealer good enough reason to tell me the 12V system and battery is good. They also deny me to buy a different decent battery to swap, telling me the warrant on the car would be void. So basically they give me a fuck you, deal with it finger.Larf1986 wrote: ↑Sun Aug 23, 2020 9:07 amHere's my current breakdown history I feel your pain, looks like the 12v issue is widespread.......... I have just sent this to the lease company to try and return the car, it's a shame because I actually love my iPace and I'm not sure what to change it for as I want to stick with an EV but I really need a car that is reliable.

Now, while the battery is not healthy, the car has also stopped trickle charge / top up the 12V battery lately. I’m unsure why, but it could be an update done to the system during one of my "pit stops" at the dealers. The dealer wouldn’t even look at this possibility.
One workshop also destroyed a original luggage strap I got with the car, but for now, won’t take my call, won’t call me back and won’t answer my email.
My car has been serviced three different places, only one place I’ve been given a good service, and of course, it’s the far away one. It’s a 42h round trip IF I don’t sleep at all (only during charging)
It’s the best car I have ever driven, when working, but the worst service ever!
Or maybe try ctek charger and put it on recondition 12v battery.
