Anyone have advice on my headlight problem? Both bulbs of the driver side headlight is not working - normal and high beam. Bulbs are fine though. Are the front headlights on the same wiring loop or wired separately? Thank you.

sounds like an electrical problem best to see dealer should be covered under warranty

Ok, thanks. I have it booked in with the dealer in a few weeks for a service, so will have them look at it. Would you know if it is on the same wiring loop?

Waste of time contacting GWM they don’t support the product at all or answer anything They’ll just say it’s a characteristic of the car. If the dealer can’t help lodge a complaint with fair trading and line up with everyone else cause fair trading can’t get anywhere with them. Eventually you’ll end up at the tribunal. I’ll let you know how I go.
Good luck.

Cannons started production build in 2020 so can't be a Cannon

While I was driving the highway I set my cruise control as normal but while driving I never got any warning of a vehicle in front no matter how close I got. Then while parking I noticed the two front sensors weren't going off like the corner ones. Is there something I need to do to rectify this? Does it need a clean or something?
I just picked it back up from a repair shop from when it got hit on the front corner panel and door, if that makes any difference. It's a 2022 Cannon X.

Just take it back to the dealer, it’ll be under warranty and they’d be able to help out.
Shouldn’t be a problem

Daniel C.

Alright, thanks, I was hoping there was an easy fix like WD40 on the sensor and wipe it. But yeah probably best to just do that. Thank you.

I have an intermittent problem when towing my caravan. The hazard lights come on when I break, it’s not every trip and sometimes corrects itself after a while but can easily start again.
My local dealer suggested deactivating the rear and side sensors.
Anybody have this issue? Did you resolve it? How do I deactivate the sensors?

Nigel B
Nigel B  

yes that's normal - part of emergency braking system when the car thinks it's a dangerous situation

Has anyone had the gearbox slipping when cold addressed by a dealer/mechanic? Mine generally occurs when below 3 bars on temp and shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear. Under load up hill very noticeable in higher gears as well. Once warm (3 bars temp) goes away.

Emilee R.

I have a vanta and mine slips all the time also sounds like the diff is slipping as well
I also have engine surging issues and with no fault codes dealer is useless at helping also was charged for diagnostics and labour for doing a computer update that my ute required

Any one else have the DPF clean warning come on a lot? In a 3 hour drive, mine came up 3 times saying it's doing a clean. In the 6000km it must have come on 20 or more times and I've done the manual burn maybe 8 times to stop it going into limp mode.

AdamFP
AdamFP  

The DPF is these is overly enthusiastic. When mine started doing it more regularly, I bought a bottle of dpf clean from Penrite at Supercheap ( about 40bucks, so look for when they are on special ) . To my amazement, it actually calmed it down a lot ( remember to add it before fill up , to a full tank )

Jesse

Hey bro is it safe to add the dpf clean as mine is a company car im doing minimum 6 dpf burn off's per Tank sometimes more.

My auto fold in mirrors on my 2021 Cannon L have stopped working. Still set to auto in the menu, but don’t fold in when locking. Any ideas?

Bertus P.
Bertus P.  

If you play around with the manual folding button in the cab and try it again for some reason it works

How do you reset the kms service spanner that comes up? I took it to a service centre that was not GWM and they couldn't find how to do it, and there isn't anything on the www. I am guessing a code reader is needed, but I have one, and there is nothing on there to reset.
Also, other things that annoy me are:
Head unit resetting every startup
Have to turn off lane assist every startup (unsafe when towing)
loses steering settings memory
Rear park sensors fault randomly
Front sensors only come on when you turn the front camera on
Auto fold mirrors just stop working
Flat spot in accelerator is deplorable (UPGRADE DID NOTHING, EITHER DID A THROTTLE CONTROLLER)
Shudder when towing on take off
Surging when on cruise control
Can't control the volume when cameras are on
Cruise control drops way below limit before kicking back, especially up hills
Anti collision mistakes parked cars as a threat and applies brakes
Auto wipers are inconsistent
Auto windows sometime don't work
DPF can come on 3 times a day when towing!!!!! Apparently this is normal!!!!
I think that is about it, and I know all these issues are not a huge problem, but it does take the shine out of what is a very good vehicle, instead of being good, it could have been great. Does anyone have any user fixes for the above?

Murray G

Did you get an answer?

Tony S.
Tony S.  

Yep, it has to be reset by the code reader, my mechanic didn’t have the software on his, so I brought one, but the one I brought didn’t have that on there either. Next service I will make sure they can reset it, as it drives me mad.

Denise F.

Make sure your ignition is off hold the reset mileage. Button down while you're holding that turn the ignition. On. For 10 seconds. And there you go everything's reset.

Tony S.

Thanks, but mine is electronic, so can’t do that

Hi we have had our GWM cannon x 2021 for about 10 months. Just wondering if anyone else is having problem with the stereo. Our stereo keeps turning it self on when we have turned it off so just the GWM logo is displaying. But you will be driving along and then it will come on by it's self. Sometime when it comes on it will by it self it will have no sound then next time it might have sound. And this might happened up to 4 or more times a day. Other wise it is a great ute.

You have a speed volume setting that is adjustable

Can someone help put some light on the gwm haval cannon X. Seen a YouTube video regarding the transfer case overheating in critical situations of traction. Is this true ? Have anyone experienced this while being out on the beach or sand dunes. And how long does it take to cool down to come out of limp mode.
Your information would be greatly appreciated.

Jake w.
Jake w.  

If you want to drive in soft sand, hold the traction control button for 5ish seconds and it switches to “cross country expert mode". In that mode the transfer case clutches are locked up 100% of the time and will never slip enough to get hot.
If it is really really soft the car should be in low range and the clutches are locked up in low range as well.
Mine is on 35inch tyres and weighs 2.7 tonnes with the camping setup on it and I have never had the temp warning come up, not once.

Cheers thanks so much makes more sense to me now. Just can't trust what you see on YouTube. I appreciate the advice.
