Hey everyone,

New Enyaq owner here. Been fiddling around with the charge options and I'm sort of wondering, I noticed the delayed charging timer doesn't seem to start charging at the time configured, has anyone else noticed this?
I've gone in and added a charger, called it "Home" and told it to start charging at 11pm, checked the app on the phone before heading to bed at like 11.30 and noticed charging didnt start, I can't get the car to start charging, unless I delete my "home" charger. Even if it's there with no timers activated, the car just refuses to start charging. So I've turned to using my wallbox's timer instead.

As for the Departure timer, what exactly does this do ? As I understand it, it preconditions the battery and hour before departure and starts the airconditioning half an hour before, does it also make sure the car is charged prior to the departure timer ?

And does the departure timer really work ? I've seen people saying it doesn't work when plugged in, but working when unplugged. I obviously don't want to use it if it requires me to unplug the car, as that would use some of the battery.

pre ME3 it preconditions the battery (the 1h before thing) only when offgrid (not plugged in)
ME3 should do it also ongrid.
pre-post ME3 internal climatization works regardless if off/ongrid.

Is there any way of checking if my car has the ME3 update ?
I bought the car a week ago, it has 200 miles on it supposedly a 05 2022 version

And thank you for the answer, really appreciated

The System Information screen will have an entry of ID Software 3.0.0
An easier clue is that the battery icon on the small Visual Cockpit display will show the remaining charge as a percentage figure.

I see, thanks... A bit annoyed that im not on the new software.. I have the range displayed as miles. In my infotainment, I cant see anything 3.0 just Software Version: 0795

But since the range is displayed as it is, I guess im on the older version

I've found that the departure timer works perfectly on mine but the charger timer is rubbish. Fortunately my wallbox has a timer so I use that and it's been perfect everytime.
