Hi. My lights come on, then go off but then keep coming back on every few minutes. Coincides with the cooling flaps opening. It is killing the 12V battery as the current draw on the 12V is 8 amps. If the scheduled charge kicks in before the battery dies then all is good, if not no charge and a dead car which needs a jump start. Just posted about this. Be interested to know if you have the same issue.

Don't really understand why your cooling flaps open if your not charging , i put the charging plug in at 4.30 last night a full 8 hours before the charging slot , the lights went off after 10 minutes and I've been doing this for 18 months with no problems

I don't understand this either. I have done as much investigation as I can. Seems it only happens if scheduled charge is set on the car (00:30 to 04:30 is what I normally use) and then plugged into wall box. If I use 13A socket charger it is fine. If I set the schedule on the charger it is fine. Have played with all the settings I can think of. Will have to go back to Hyundai again to be looked at. I don't think it is my charger as I don't have the same issue on our Kona but that might be misleading. It never used to do this but if anything it has got worse since it came back from Hyundai on 2nd Jan. When it happens, the cooling vents open, the car pings and the dashboard message about scheduled charge appears and the charging lights sequence. Does this for 3 mins, then stops and goes to sleep, then starts again 3-4 mins later. Very strange. Love the car otherwise!

Thanks Guys
What I found if I unlock the car plug in my wall box charger
then lock the car the charge port lights move in sequence letting me know the schedule timer is set then the lights go out until the timer kicks in.
Hope this helps.
