Hi, help please, I had my Pod Point untethered charger installed Wednesday. On plugging the cable into the car the lights adjacent to the charge port in the car showed white = initializing, then went to flashing green = charging, but the flashing green did not stay on for the duration of the charge & there was no solid green light to show it was fully charged, I went by the app to see it was fully charged. I had bought a 10m 3 pin charger from Screwfix & I had no lights showing during charging, but assumed that was because it was not a JLR cable.
I phoned the dealership to query & was told to call out JLR assist!!! Please can someone enlighten me as to if your green lights flash continually while charging & does your green light stay on permanently until unplugged, which is what I expected. TQ in advance.

I use a 3-pin home charger cable at home and a Type 2 at public charging stations. The white light comes on when I open the flap (to help me see if it’s dark) when I plug in the light flashes green - I think it flashes more quickly at first while initialising then more steadily while charging. The light goes off when I lock the car, presumably to avoid drawing attention. I’ve never seen the solid green light but I always disconnect the other end first when I’ve finished charging.
Cheers, David

I have an untethered Podpoint at home. The car port flashes green for a very short time when it first starts charging. Then no lights. I don't think that I have ever seen a solid green light. I look at the JLR app or Podpoint app to see if it is fully charged, but more often than not I just open the car door and the screen tells me the current charging status.

I am not using the supplied cable at home, I have bought a longer third party cable.

TQ for confirming yours does the same as mine.

The only time my car flashes white with pod point is when I have scheduled charging via pod point rather than the car, once the schedule time comes it will start going green.

Irrelevant of what device/cable is used, you will always get light indications.

I had no lights with the 3 pin charger from Screwfix. Whilst charging is your Pod Point flashing green or steady green?

I guess we must be mistaken BJD:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
Would be nice to know what is correct. A while back I was told by a sales person, that the lights would flash green while charging & go to solid green once charged, which kinda makes sense!

My charger shows a flashing blue light whilst charging. On the car socket the green light only flashes for a few seconds when initially plugged in, then it shows no lights during charging. Full charge is displayed on the car dashboard and also via a notification on the remote app.

It flashes green for a few seconds then goes off while charging, the only time it will be a solid green is when you return to the car and its fully charged, but only when you unlock your car

Hi, I have a P300e, white light comes on when unlocked, plug cable in green light flashes until locked, steady green when unlocked after charging and display on dash shows 100%. I guess there are no lights during charging so as no current drain?
