RE: battery charging impossible
Tried waggling cable, tried both charge ports, tried brick charged - still the same.
Reinseted charge master cable, turn off / on with charge master key.
Indicators flash, fault clears, charging starts.
Even more strange is vehicle range appears to have increased by circa 10 miles per charge.
Its dropped to around 58 over last few weeks, but today (exactly same journey,weather, driving style) shows 69 post charging.
