Just posted this in another part of the forum, but then realized here is more suitable.

I just got a Peugeot iOn and I can't get the charging to work from the 7 kW wall box, but it does charge with the granny charger. I had a Renault Zoe a year ago which charged from the box with no issues, and there are no signs of damage (the app says everything is fine and can detect the car, but the car doesn't seem to allow charging to happen).

I believe the iOn is limited to 16 A, but my charger can modulate so I don't think this would be an issue. In the manual, it only mentions the granny charger and there is no mention of mode 3 charging, but surely this is possible? When I stick the cable in, the red charger light on the dash flashes 2 or 3 times so it does detect it, but for some reason it doesn't allow charging to happen.

Any ideas?

I think some chargers have an issue with the miev due to them being very old cars and not quite to spec. I think its to do with the timing of the car asking for the charge or not. Make sure you plug into post and then into car

As above, most likely this is a 2009 or 2010 car which doesnt communicate with charge points, just expects mains voltage. If your granny cable is literally just a straight through cable without any electronics "brick" then your car can only ac charge with this cable. Your only option therefore for public charging is DC chademo charging with the rapid charge port on the other side and you can't use public ac chargers.

Cheers
