Re: Electric traction system fault

As of 4 Aug still no car, the dealers have apparently replaced the onboard charger which was on back order, then they are having to change the battery coolant but didn't have the necessary equipment to do it, so that is on back order. Couldn't get a courtesy car so have ended up with a hire car afte...

Re: Electric traction system fault

So just short of a year after breaking down on the A69, my wife just called to say it has happened again on the same road. Phoned RAC, after waiting 45 mins car sprung back into life, so my wife is risking driving back as RAC won't do anything if they come out and it is driveable. Next available app...

Re: Electric traction system fault

A month wait seems a bit ridiculous when it is a safety issue! Have you tried Vauxhall customer care, not sure if they can help speed it up. Drove 600 miles over the weekend and I had no issues after ECU and other updates, hoping it continues. Things I've noticed since updates, using public chargers...

Re: Electric traction system fault

So after being told I wouldn't hear anything for a week I got a call this afternoon to say it was ready to collect. The garage said it was a software issue only and there were numerous updates including the ECU updates. Fingers crossed it has sorted the issue! Noticed driving back that the gom was c...

Re: Electric traction system fault

Spoke to maintenance at dealer today they said the diagnostic was showing between 50 and 60 error codes, have said I might hear more in a weeks time. Vauxhall have apparently been in touch with the garage but I haven't heard anything from them directly. In the meantime I have been given a hire car w...

Re: Electric traction system fault

What has the dealer said now that the problem is back? Anybody got a response from Vauxhall? I sent a complaint and have a case number but nothing yet. Still no courtesy car either.

Re: Electric traction system fault

Thanks Nathan. Garage just got back to me and have said there were numerous error codes and I should hear more the middle of next week. I'm hopefully getting a hire car delivered tomorrow in place of a courtesy car. I'll take a screen shot of the code as that was what I had but because where I broke...

Re: Electric traction system fault

Local main Vauxhall dealer not authorised to work on ev?! Had to take it to dealer 30 miles away, they wouldn't give me a courtesy car as the car is still driveable. They said they have never heard of the problem, will update when they get back to me but it isn't looking promising, feel like they ar...

Re: Electric traction system fault

All good thanks. Police were great and stayed with me for hour and a half. Will update with what the dealer says. My car is the Elite Nav and I took delivery early August 2020.

Re: Electric traction system fault

Just had this happen whilst doing 65mph on A69, complete loss of power car coasted to stop in a dangerous place, couldn't restart and wouldn't lock, tried a couple times to restart before ringing police as I was a danger to traffic and RAC. First rescue person turned up couldn't do anything, flat be...
