    I live in the desert. Have had full regen since spring.

    Went camping last weekend. 38 degrees at night. Woke up to the sun. Full regen.

    --

    Tonight I went to get my car from SC. Had some rattles fixed.

    71 degrees. Got in. NO regen - the kind I only saw in the snow last winter.

    Drove home in traffic, 69 degrees. Didn't get regen back.

    Drove around at night in 68 degrees. Still wont come back.

    Anyone seen this? What did they do to my car? Does it have to do with charge being in the 90%s?

    A full battery will give little to no regen. If battery get below 85% and still no regen there might be some trouble.

    You have of course checked the regen button on the display :)

    Nice to post SoC... every post about regen seems to be either cold or a full battery....

    Yes, that is the likely cause. A combination of cooler temps for longer time and high state of charge. How high in the 90% range?
