crf – Have you spoken to Renault Customer Care? The car charging timer facility, as said by others, is nothing to do with R-Link/ZE (remote) services. I don’t use the phone app although my husband does and I use car charging scheduler all the time. It is pretty reliable.
If you have a new car then you may need activated by ZE though to you can have full use of all your services…I can’t remember. So speak to them:- firstname.lastname@example.org
Someone else on another thread has also said he has greyed out part too and yet has been charging successfully until now.
Hi crf did not realise you were not in the uk
Is your home charger a polar with a key to turn it on
If so if you plug your car in and turn the switch on does it charge
Ive never had the lid off but if there are wires connected to this switch you could take the wire off one side to a relay then put a wire from the other side of the nomally open relay contact to the switch were you took the wire from .
Switching the relay with your timer
I am using the granny cable, pluged in a digital timer, pluged in a wall socket. This setup works fine when the car is still awake. The problem is, that the car does not start charging, after being left OFF for hours.(more than 10 minutes)
But sometimes it does. It’s like 90% NOT 10% YES. And this makes it even stranger. 🙂
I no nothing about granny cables
May sound like a stupid idea but sometimes stupid ideas work
As your timer will probably not be double pole try unpluging your lead at both ends After charging then when you want to set up the car on the timer plug in at timer first then the car .
