Hello! Anyone had issues with their car taking charge? After plugging in the light flashes green, dashboard shows the cable is plugged in, but does not show the charge duration. After 30 seconds there is a click and the charge light turns orange, then a few minutes later its white. Tried it with both my home charge point and the 3 pin plug one. Have it booked in at VW tomorrow, but just wondering if anyone else has seen this issue?

You are probably seeing "red" according to VW. I believe this indicates there is an issue with locking the plug in the car. It is good you are taking it to VW as probably only a dealer can repair this. I have not seen this issue, but read the manual and this is my guess. Best of luck!

Been at VW for a week now, and all they've managed to do is reset it to factroy settings twice with no change. Think its going to be in for the long haul 😞. Its only 4 months old!

If it is a locking plug issue, they will probably have to replace the whole vehicle inlet, which is pricey, so maybe that's why they are stalling (or maybe I'm just a skeptic). Let's hope they sort it out next week.

I have the same car. In my early days i had the non locking plug preventing charge. What i found it is necassary to remove the lower part of the socket as just sometmes the plug would not go in the last fraction and lock. No locking means no charging. Does it work on a rapid charger?

Still no progress by VW, latest update today is that its going to a specialist for high voltage cable checks. Im driving around in a diesel courtesy car!
