That is definitely not normal. Even if the car is charging, the Mennekes type 2 plug is splash-watertight and will not be the cause of an electric shock. I suspect that there is a fault in the wiring of the car and you should have it checked out ASAP. Maybe a 300V lead has the isolation wearing through against a metal part, which could lead to a life-threatening situation. Until then wear rubber gloves when touching one of the suspect parts. And dry rubber-soled shoes.Zoya5 wrote:I can verify that once the plug was all the way in and the car was charging, I definitely received an electric, not static shock from touching the metal boot clasp ring in the vehicle. My husband replicated the shock at a later stage....so very much possible! Anyone know how this might have happened?
I suspect it is the metal loop in the rear sill of the boot that is the female part of the lock.Steel188 wrote:May I ask where in the world you are located and how old is your car? Also, what do you mean by ‘metal boot clasp ring’?
Regardless of this information, I think an urgent visit to your dealer is required to get this rectified, you should not be getting electric shocks off the vehicle.
