 :o Effectively ! I never read this document in details :-[. I don't think it has a big impact to clear the water need before or after the charge. Regarding my vehicle, I always did it after the charge. You can even drive with the dashboard light still on after the charge and clear it later.

But in any case, I will try to think to a way to force the water page in the app even if the light is off because some people (like me ;)) do the water service without a maintenance charge so the page will never come.

The pictures of the water service guidelines addet in my earlier, was in Danish. Sorry.
The base line is that they tell it is very important to RESET counters and need for water BEFORE the water service is done :)

Just a suggestion.. Maby an extra button in the charge menu.. "Reset need for water", then a dialog: Reset counters and need for water? "yes" or "Cancel" ..

If the need for water and counters is NOT cleared on my car.:
It will go into battery protect mode to limit water waste from batteries. By limit the charge (no over charge is done) and need for recharge lamp will be on sooner.

A little experience I had :) :
When I bought my car someone did fill water but did not reset.. I acted like batteries was very bad (only 40km on a charge).
I did not know what was wrong as there was no lamps lid in dashboard..
Someone had taken out all warring the lamps in dashboard, for the car to show like all OK.. :) :)
After reset need for water i had 60-70km on a charge.

With evLite you can clear the overcharge-counter (=watherlight counter) any time you like.  Maybe you could somehow monitor which command it sends to the car ??

I have never neither read that anywhere nor ever done that, and I have done water-service about 100 times.

Hi Steens,
Did the possibility to reset need for water implemented in the app. ?

I ask as my friend now has the Need for water lamp on.. As lamp newer came ON and never got reset after the last water service by the app.. ?
(the case i started to ask about a few chats back).

He do not have access to a lexia.. :)

Thanks
Br.

Hi Timescape,

I've still not implemented this feature yet. I keep it in mind and will do something for the V3.0 actually being developed.

But I wonder something: if you are in battery protect mode, this means that your counter is above the threshold and then that a light is on on the dashboard, isn't it ? And with this light, the app doen't show the water page ?

It's the first time I hear about this importance of doing the reset before the water service. So many people are doing it after without any problem. Could you monitor a charge and send the pictures to check what happens during this battery protect mode ? Just to understand how it works.

Interesting question Steens.
Is the chargelogic in a different "state" when watherlight is lit due to overcharge above 860Ah than when waterlight is lit due to a completed MaintanceCharge or InitialCharge ?
And I dont know the answer  :(

Hi Steens,
Thanks for your reply.
I will try to answer as good as I can :)

Battery protection mode.. :
Yes, it seems to go i a kind of battery protection mode when the water lamp is on.
The manual claims that the lamp/counters shall be reset before water service. I do not know why. I have always done it :)
when I got my car. I did stop charge at 100% (no over charge). The "charge needed" Lamp came on at about 50%.
In my case all the warring light bulbs was taken out of the dashboard, so no warning was given !
(previous owner had filled water, but apparently did not have lexia to do it right.).
After reset need for water/counters with lexia the car did overcharge and got the double range in driving distance !
(no other errors was present in failure readout).
I of course inserted light bulbs in the dashboard :) :)

Maybe there is differences in the firmware ver. in the car..
Or maybe is done to prevent if the counters is close to limit and during the maintain charge is triggering the need for water lamp before time i the progress.. I do not know..

It is a friend of mine in the other end of country who has the issue. So it is difficult for me to investigate or get measurements.
I will make water service myself soon and of course use the app. without reset first:)
(my need for water lamp is not on).

Thanks
Br.
