Hello. I've had a 2015 Outlander PHEV since February and everything has been fine. Went to plug it in last night, came back to the car this morning to find that it hadn't charged. Its set up on a timer to charge between 12 a.m. and 4p.m.

The app is telling me that the charge timer could not be activated. But even turning the charge timer off makes no difference.

The car refuses to charge.

Could be quite a few things! Do you charge via a 16A chargepoint - if so is it tethered or untethered, or via a 13A granny charger? If the former, have you tried charging off the granny lead?

Could you take the car to another public chargepoint to see if it charges there? Do you know anyone else with an EV (type 1) who could plug into your charger to see if it's working?

Sounds like it could be a problem with the app/charge timer but they can be difficult to diagnose!

If you are charging with the granny charger turn it off at the mains, give it a ten count then turn it on & plug it back in. I don't use a timer but I have had an occasion where I plugged it in and the charge light just kept flashing & no charge was going in.

It charges fine from the lead supplied with the car so I’m assuming my charge point could be at fault. It’s a ChargedEV unit so I’ll get in touch with them tomorrow.

First make sure that the button on the plug clicks in, this activates the charging.

I had some issue with the timers in the PHEV .. mainly the timer in the MMCS did not work

I did disable WiFi .. and this did reset the timer setting ..

I'm not sure this may help in your case .. but you can try if disable and re-enable WiFi allow you to rest timers and maybe remove some lock situation

I have this issue occasionally (annoyingly) using my Chargemaster home unit. The solution is to reset it by switching off and on at the fusebox and then it starts to work again.

I have a very similar issue. For past two days cannot get my 2015 Outlander to charge at home with the Granny cable. The green light flashes. Have tried disabling timers via both the app and Mmc but makes no difference. Charged at work with my type 1 to type 2 cable with no problems. Help please!

Possibly the same as above - the micro-switch in the car plug not operating correctly.
