The battery and electric motor which propel TX require little to no regular maintenance since there are fewer fluids to change and fewer serviceable parts. Because the electric motor drives the taxi, there is no traditional gearbox to inspect or maintain. The range-extender will require maintenance similar to conventional vehicles, however because the battery powers the vehicle on its own most of the time, the range-extender only operates when needed – meaning there is less mechanical wear on those components. Even the regenerative braking system plays a part in reducing maintenance costs. Not only does it improve the electric range, but it also reduces the wear on the brake pads and brakes extending their lifespan.
TX will alert you through the dashboard symbols, when your taxi needs attention. To keep our customers informed the below information will help you find out what your taxi needs.
This warning light illuminates when a fault has been identified by the vehicle that could affect the safety and/or the driveability of the vehicle. An explanatory text is shown in the driver's display at the same time.
If this warning light illuminates when driving, a fault has been identified by the vehicle in the 12V or high voltage electrical system. Contact a LEVC Approved Dealer for the fault to be investigated.
Engine Oil Pressure
If this warning light illuminates during driving a fault has been identified with the engine oil pressure. The cause of this may be that the engine oil level is low. Switch off the vehicle immediately and check the engine oil level, top up if necessary. For further information see Engine oil, checking and filling up, page 370. If the warning light continues to illuminate contact a LEVC Approved Dealer.
If this warning light illuminates a fault has been identified by the vehicle in the brakes system. Stop the vehicle as soon as it is safe to do so. The braking of the vehicle may be affected, this may result in increased braking distances. Contact a LEVC Approved Dealer for the fault to be investigated.
If this warning light remains illuminated after the warning light check or illuminates while driving, a fault has been identified by the vehicle in the airbag system. Read the message in the driver's display. Contact a LEVC Approved Dealer for the fault to be investigated.
This light illuminates when the vehicle has identified a fault with the engine. Contact a LEVC Approved Dealer for the vehicle to be inspected.
Anti-lock braking system
This illuminates briefly when the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is activated. If it remains illuminated the system has identified a fault. Contact a LEVC Approved Dealer for the fault to be investigated. See Anti-lock braking system, page 116.
Electronic Stability Control
This light flashes when the system operates. If it remains illuminated the system has identified a fault. Contact a LEVC Approved Dealer for the fault to be investigated.
This light illuminates when the pressure in a tyre is too low. If there is a fault with the Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) the light will flash for approximately 1 minute and then remain illuminated.
