Normally when there's a fault with the charge point, it comes up explaining the fault, like "Insufficient Voltage to charge" but now I'm getting this message with no further explanation.

Has anyone had this too? It's charged for 5 mins then it comes up with that error. Repeated twice.

Thanks in advance

Thats the only error I have personally come across. I have never encountered a specific error like you say about low voltage or anything. I've seen it plenty of times and its always because of a duff charging post.

One thing you do mention, saying it only charged for around 5 minutes. DBT Rapid chargers (Ecotricity, old Polar and CYC chargers for example) have a software issue with CCS charging. If you happened to be using one of these old rapid chargers it is very common to see it start charging, stop after 6 minutes and throw up and error like this in the car.

Try charging elsewhere if you can. It is most likely a problem with the charger/post rather than your car the majority of the time.

I've tried 2 Ecotricity chargers in my i3 and got the 'unable to charge' message both times.

Whereabouts in the country are you? Worth checking for a local HEVRA garage, they are independent EV specialists, often better (and always cheaper) than the main dealer. Cheers.
