So we have a charging station at home for our i3 and Chevy Volt. Had the i3 for a year and haven’t had any problems charging. All of a sudden, the i3 won’t charge. The Volt still is charging as normal. Took the i3 to Bmw service and they replaced the 12 volt battery, otherwise the car charged normally at the dealership. Brought the car home and it still won’t charge. I’m at a loss for what to do. It shows the charger cord attached on the dash, but it doesn’t actually charge.

Before going down Wallbox route, have you tried charging with a public charger? I know on BMW i3 stateside, then any issues with charging then car would stop rapid charging, but it should trickle charge.

Do you get any warning lights on LED strip on car charge point?

Just resolving a charging issue myself with Wallbox, but not Wallbox Pro. Car wouldn't charge from Wallbox, or from home mobile 13A charger. Eventually traced fault to locking solenoid on the car. In Europe, when charging, then the car locks to the charger. I know in the US, the lock is on the charger, not the car.
