Emergency charging only available warning

Post by Sarah » Sat Nov 21, 2020 2:30 pm

I’ve bought a 3 pin cable from VW to charge my car whilst I’m awaiting for the charging unit. However when I plug it in I’m getting the light near the charging plug flashing green and red, and a message saying ‘only emergency charging currently possible. Please consult vehicle wallet’
Has anyone else had this issue please?

There’s a “reduced current” option in the charging settings within the infotainment system, turn that on before you plug in and switch on.

I get this sometimes, no idea why, does it on my home and work Rolec chargers.... I unplug and plug it back in again, seems ok the second time. Mine is 4 days old.
