Afternoon All,

I finally took delivery of my I-Pace on Monday and have tested it with my [newly installed] Andersen charger.
I don't seem to be getting the correct sequence of lights when charging.
There are 2 different scenarios as follows:

1. Andersen is Online and Car plugged in:
  • The white flashing LED shows initialisation briefly
  • The green flashing LED shows charging briefly
  • The green light goes out and remains out (although charging continues)
2. Andersen set to Scheduled Charging:
  • No white initialisation light on plug-in
  • No Green flashing light when charging starts
  • (No lights at all in other words)
In both situations, the Andersen, the car and my smart meter all show that the car is charging correctly.
I should be getting a flashing green while charging is ongoing though (according to the manual).

Has anyone else seen this or has a solution?

Thanks....

In Mini the flashing charging LED goes out within 30 seconds but charging continues. I would like it to continue so I can visually check that charging still continues. Perhaps iPace is same?

On my ipace, green charging light only stays on for 30 seconds. I just check the app to see if its still charging.

Thanks. I am only getting a few seconds of flashing.
I now gather that this is normal, however!

Yeah could even be less than 30 seconds, as I said I just use the app. Word of warning your next thing will be is the charging speed. App can show anything between 1 mile an hour to 128 miles an hour. Again ignore it. On a 7kw charger me rule of thumb is just over an hour for every 10% of change 👍
