Zoe / CanZE for ZE50
« på: Mandag 25. Mai 2020, klokken 14:14 »

The main developer of CanZE does not have a ZE50 and is not very active with adding support for the ZE50 at the moment. And he is not going to put much effort into this for a foreseeable future.
Things might change quickly if someone buys him a ZE50 though :P

So if anyone feels like contributing to the project, feel free to clone the github repo ( and send him pull requests.

Zoe / Getting some heat while charging
« på: Fredag 03. Januar 2020, klokken 15:15 »
I have read/seen many places people complaining about not being able to use the heater in the car while it is charging. But I also seem to remember that using the pre-conditioning is a possible work around.

So I finally tested today with my R110 :)

And indeed it works! I started the charge and then while sitting in the car I pressed the button on the keycard and after a little while, heat came out of the vents.
I guess it is the same if one uses the app.

Can you guys who have a earlier model confirm that it also works for you?

Zoe / Zoé ZE50: Tips and tricks
« på: Tirsdag 31. Desember 2019, klokken 19:37 »
I am thinking that creating a topic with all the good tips and tricks for the new Zoé ZE50 might  be a good idea :)

I already read some feedback from the French users on the French forum, and will add mine as soon as I get the car (hopefully soon...)

My plan is to gather everything here in the first post of the first page so the full list is easily accessible.
It should be doable since I can edit this first post over and over again.

If people write about new tricks in this topic, I will simply add them here as soon as I see them...
So please contribute if you can :)

Here it goes!

#1. Start the car without starting the car

On the previous models, if you did not/could not start the car (break pedal + start), it was necessary to insert the key in the opening below the R-Link screen in order to be able to e.g open/close the windows or use the wipers.
On the new model, you can just press Start without pressing the break pedal at the same time, and voila!

#2. Unlock charging cable/Open the flap for charging with the key card

The new key card does not have its own button for unlocking the charging cable/opening the flap in the front of the car. The trick is then to do a long press on the unlock button instead. This will only unlock the charging cable though, not open the flap.

#3. Easy connect/Easy Link info/manuals


At the bottom of this page:

More here:

More detailed info about how to enable your connected services and connect the car to the app at this post lower down this topis:

#4. Charging speed: 22 kW vs 50 kW (when battery pack at ok temperature)

Cf picture attached (ZoeChargingSpeeds.jpg), or here as long as the direct link works.

More info from TeslaBjørn in this video, at 07:21:

#5. TPMS, tires pressure sensors

More info here (Thanks Øystein)
So basically go to the menu where your tire pressures are displayed after you have changes the tires. Then hold the OK key in for a little while and then the car will connect to the new sensors.

#6. How to open and use the keycard

It is not that obvious. You have to push horizontally from one side (the one with the 2 little grooves) to the other (the one with the little hole).
More info, also with everything you can do with the keycard, in this post below:

#7. Where is the OBDII plug

If you want to use CanZE, you need to know where to plug your OBDII dongle.
When you are sitting in the driver seat and driving, it is exactly on the left of your left foot.
There is also another app called "ZOE ZE50 - Power Cruise Control" which is similar.

#8. Customizing the dashboard digital display

All you need to know is here:

#9. How to change/stop the sounds for the pedestrians

More info:

#10. How to keep your windscreen wipers up

Push the right handle (the one you use to activate the wipers) all the way down when the car is off.

#11 How to restart Easy Link

To do this, just keep pressing (for 5 to 10 seconds) the start button in the bottom left corner until it reboots, a bit like when your laptop or phone froze.

#12 Always check your BMS is up to date

Each time you take your car in for service, make sure they check the BMS version and update it if necessary.
The first Zoés ZE50 can have an earlier BMS version which give you a bad SoH.

WIP, more to come later!
The more people contribute, the better so don't be shy :)

Zoe / Skvettlapper/Mud flaps for Zoe
« på: Tirsdag 10. Desember 2019, klokken 09:10 »
I am looking for some feedback from those of you who have installed "skvettlapper" on your Zoé.
Is it worth it?
Does it really protect well, especially the front doors?
Is it easy to break when you drive up and down sidewalks or speed bump (fartsdump)?
Did you notice any loss of range/higher consumption?

Zoe / My Renault app
« på: Mandag 11. November 2019, klokken 08:29 »
Have many of you installed the new My Renault app?
This one:

It is not available in Norway yet but one can manually install the APK if one finds it ;)

Zoe / Overwriting TPMS IDs via CanZE
« på: Mandag 28. Oktober 2019, klokken 11:44 »
I have the latest version of CanZE (1.45) on Android but when I try to overwrite the tires pressure sensors registered with new IDs so they match the winter tires ones, I get an error.
Do other people have the same problem?

Zoe / CanZE and battery capacity
« på: Mandag 06. Mai 2019, klokken 12:14 »
Via CanZE, I see I do not get much over 39 kWh of available capacity for my battery pack which is supposed to give me 41 kWh.
I had hoped that it was because of the cold winter temperatures but it does not seem to improve much now that we are/were closer to 20C. The measurements in April while it was warm were not any closer to 41 kWh.

What are you guys with R90s/R110s seeing?

Zoe / Tom Tom updatefor R-Link to install before April 2019
« på: Onsdag 06. Februar 2019, klokken 08:45 »
In case you have not seen it, there is an update to install for Tom Tom on R-Link:
Type your VIN and find out if you are concerned.
Deadline: April 6th, 2019.

Zoe / How not to get the battery pack fan running when delaying charging?
« på: ſøndag 03. Februar 2019, klokken 16:48 »
Being a good citizen I usually charge after 2300 in order to minimize the load on the grid during peak hours.
So I typically set the car to start charging at 00:00, get home, park and plug it to the wallbox.
But I notice that most of the time, especially during winter, the battery pack fan start right after the car is plugged in, even though it is several hours before the charging will start.

Any tip to prevent this?

I tried to put in in Eco mode but that does not help...


Zoe / Charging history in app
« på: Fredag 01. Februar 2019, klokken 09:07 »
Is it just me or the charging history in the "app" for the Zoe is gone since Jan, 1st?
I can fetch the data for December, but since January the list is just empty.
I have no problem with the communication with the car otherwise so I am hoping this is a central problem on their servers. Maybe due to the fact that they have a new "My Renault" app on the way?

Zoe / R-Link and bluetooth connection with phone
« på: Mandag 10. Desember 2018, klokken 09:15 »
I have a new Zoe and a 1 year old mobile phone but I experience a lot of instability with the Bluetooth connection between R-Link and the phone.
I usually use BT to play music or place phone calls.
And I often lose the ability to call ("No Service") after playing music for a while, even though I can call from the mobile. Some other time I also lose the ability to play the music.
The only way to fix this is to switch the BT on the phone off and on again.

Anyone else has experienced this?
Is the R-Link known to be bad with the BT support?


Zoe / ZOE battery pack thermal management (or lack there of :P)
« på: Mandag 26. November 2018, klokken 09:44 »
Does anyone know what are the differences between the 22/23 kWh and the 41 kWh battery packs in terms of thermal management?
Are they pretty much the same?
Or is the new battery pack better at warming up when cold and cooling down when hot so the car can always charge as close as 22 kW as possible?

I read in another thread that the new one takes longer to warm up by driving and starting from a cold pack.

Zoe / Battery capacity left inaccurately reported
« på: Onsdag 31. Oktober 2018, klokken 11:41 »

I have noticed that after a "long drive" (say more than 30 km at least, but more like 50+ km), the reading of the SoC varies between the moment I stop the car and the moment I use it again several hours later.
The typical example is what happened to me yesterday. I left home I had 48% left. When I got back after 30 min drive I had 22% left. But when the car started charging 3h later (via timer), it started with 29% left.
And this is somehow explained by the fact that the battery pack is an analogue thing and that voltages have to equalize between all the cells and so on. So I am not too surprised that it works like this.
But I have 2 questions:
1. Do all the cars have the same behaviour? Or are the other cars better at "estimating"?
2. Does the reading get more accurate as we get closer to an empty battery? Indeed, I know that when the car stops because of an empty battery pack, it does get a few percentage points back after a while and one car hopefully reach the nearest charger. But I am wondering if the inaccuracy is still between 5 and 10% as one gets closer to 0% SOC.

Thanks for the feedback!
