Charge Port Door Warning

70

Now Implemented!

Description

Offer a more pronounced warning when the charge port door is open, perhaps with a one-time audible beep. Currently there is only a visible warning on the display that is easy to miss when first starting out.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

None.

Status

All new cars include auto-closing feature, so we’ll consider this implemented.

Apparently, Tesla has implemented an even better solution in the latest generation cars: A powered charge port door that opens and closes on itself. For cars equipped with this kind of charge port door, this issue is pointless. It may be a nice update for older cars (like mine), though.

  • Audible

  • Both

All tones, alerts, warnings, etc should have options to increase the intensity of the sound. I am hearing impaired (deaf). I need louder and lower frequency sounds.

Flash is good.  Chime bad.

I am torn about this.  I don’t like the idea of a chime.  Perhaps make the icon flash would be a compromise.
