our 2015 REx (70k miles) has started to develop a strange behaviour re off-peak charging. I have had my i3 for a long time, so I know the quirks.
The problem: On multiple occasions, I've noticed that the car is charging immediately whilst being plugged in set as "Off-Peak Charging" (nb, the charge level was sufficiently high to not trigger immediate charging, ie above 12%, sometimes even higher, like 80%).
No white bar that usually moves across the charge level display appears and the light on the socket shines blue. The app even shows "Charging Paused". However, when I check my electricity meter, I can see that around 7kWh are being taken from the grid! Unlocking the car will stop this 'silent' charging. Once the car is locked again, charging resumes (I can also hear the known sound from the wall charger, indicating that the car is charging) yet no white line on the dashboard or the app indicates this. When I check a few minutes later, I can see that the charge level has gone up! So the car IS charging, but I seem to have lost the ability to delay charging.
Things I tried to hone in on the issue...
I have tried a second EV charge point (I have 2), but same result there, too.
I have swapped charge cables - no difference.
I have reset and restarted my electricity smart meter - no effect
One thing that has changed though is that I had the KLE changed in early December as part of the recall. I have contacted my BMW dealer today and booked the car in for a check. Blaming the new KLE would be a natural assumption...
Anyone on here with a similar experience?
