Hi Twizy community!
Two weeks ago I bought a second (third-fourth) hand Twizy for a really nice price. The Twizy is from 2012 and has more than 50 000 Km on it’s clock, so some issues are to be expected. But it runs fine, especially since I freed up the front brakes.
Now I’ve got this issue: when I stand still, the red battery signal and the stop sign light up, together with the traction battery symbol with the exclamation mark.
All these warning lights go out after I drive off. But if I stand before a stoplight it comes on again.
I plugged a battery check thingy in the 12V socket and indeed, if I the car is stationary only one led (fair) is burning. The moment I drive off, the voltage rises to three leds (good), only to lower to one led when I stop again.
Yesterday I replaced the 12V battery with an original Renault battery and charged the Twizy overnight. This however did NOT solve this problem, the warning lights came on again this morning.
So now I wonder, should the the 12V battery not have been charged after a night on the mains? And why is it only charging when I drive and not if I stand still?
What could be wrong here, and can it be fixed?
