Mine disappered a couple of weeks ago when my 12V battery went totally flat (no amber caution or red warning). Came back a day later on its own.
You have got me worried now. The app on my ipad is the same, Aux battery missing. Is it going to be flat? Strangely at the same time the car has now developed a noise of a relay clicking in and out, the noise eminates from the area behind the dongle socket. It cycles in out roughly every ten seconds while the car is running and while charging. I have also notice that while charging the displayed input figure of kWh fluctuates a lot, on 7kWh at home or public it flashes up and down between 6.3kWh and 6.8kWh and the charging times are longer. A visit to the dealer beckons next week.

Yes the light does keep coming on. But I have a serious issue on this car now. On a 50kWh charger this morning I was lucky to get 25kWh charging speed.
On Torque pro and EV notify the charge being drawn was fluctuating all the time between 13kWh and 25kWh. It appears to me that the charging speed cannot ramp up any higher because of this relay noise opening and closing which I assume is stopping it ramping up when it clicks then it tries again at the next click but reduces again at the next click. I have it booked in at the dealers next week and the man on the phone said if nothing is wrong they will charge me £140 for looking.

I have spoken to a very helpful gentleman at Hyundai customer services, who has added my opinions and my concerns on my Kona file to be forwarded to the dealer, and he asked me to keep charging logs from the apps.
He asked that I keep them informed about the issue which he said must be resolved.
