Is that the Moto Services on the M4? I get that all the time there and to be honest half of DBT chargers do that to me.

Still charges though, it's fine.

Some DBTs seem to have problems reading the meters; it's in the operator's interest to get them fixed, especially if they charge per kilowatt, or count 0kWh as a failed charge and due to be refunded. What did your vehicle think was happening? Was electricity drawn?

I didn't check - I just assumed it wasn't working and drove to the next services. Didn't want to hang about drinking expensive coffee for what appeared to be no benefit.

And all the other services were rubbish in their own ways too:
  • Chievely - huge queue along the slow lane to get into the slip road.
  • Newbury - iced by a pickup with smashed tail lights, and an occupant smoking a fag in the front passenger seat - couldn't be bothered engaging with him to get access (and the charger usually fails anyway)
  • Leigh Delamere - AC charger out of action.
So had to depend on the rex and drive easy to get home without a petrol stop. It was a bit chilly.

I regularly get the screen display showing 0 kWh after a successful charge on a rapid.

As noted, once they are billing for the charge, surely they will be legally required to accurately display metered units.
