What doth said error say? Relevant if you’d like us to translate...
Just noticed the “Torque” gauge drops about 15-20tq at idle when turning the A/C off!
Is that even possible? I know increasing efficiency helps make more HP, but didn’t think it would actually reduce TQ.
Does this mean with the A/C on our initial torque at throttle tip-in may be slightly better?
I've never noticed an error but the "A" indicator light does flash when mine turns back on at a light. Normally I feel the cabin getting warm so I assumed it turned back on to help cool the cabin back down to 74 where I normally have it set. Since I'm in Florida it's AWLAYS hot here.
Actually, maybe it's just me but I've always called what we have on the stinger a hatch and we pop the hatch. A trunk aka boot is something fully enclosed.
Yeah, I've never called my hatch a trunk: hatch was a selling feature and I always point it out.
Sorry I should have been more in depth. It comes on for a split second and i'm unable to see what it says.
Gotcha, that may be what it is. Glad to know it's nothing i should be concerned about.
Interesting Aussie GTs have ‘Turbo’ instead of ‘Boost’ in the centre gauge display. Dunno why they used Turbo (bit like the engine cover I suppose!)
Do you have a 2019? My 2018 has
I haven’t seen Turbo mentioned anywhere on my gauges
Yep, a car cut an SUV off in front of me, warning came on then it applied the brakes.
Mine's a Jan 19 build
Anyone noticed that the car sometimes doesn't recognise you walking up to it when locked (ie puddle light doesn't come on and mirror fold out)?
Yes, occasionally but I'm yet to determine why.
Can you post a pic please.
Did your brakes make a horrible grinding sound when they activated? I’ve had AEB (Autonomous Emergency Braking) kick in twice and both times it made an awful grinding sound as it applied them, something that I’ve never heard any time I’ve applied the brakes myself. The first time it did it, it over reacted to a pedestrian it thought I was going to hit even though I was steering around them. It made a horrible grinding noise and I actually thought I’d hit the edge of a traffic island that I was near and got out to check I hadn’t damaged the skirts. It did it again recently when someone stopped suddenly in front of me and decided to turn at the last minute. I was able to steer around them but it sounded horrible. Sounded louder on the front left and felt like that brake pulled harder then the others too.
Mine has Boost...Oct.17 build
Mines kicked in a couple of times and sounds exactly the same. Pretty sure it’s normal. I remember hearing a similar sound from my Commodore when braking extremely hard. Something to do with the ABS and the brakes cycling on and off to avoid locking up I believe?
Mine is MY19 June 2018 Build and it says 'Turbo'
That’s an interesting subtle difference, I wonder why.
Any chance of a photo.
Here you go...
Thanks, I note yours is set for kpa & mine is psi.
