Plugged the Smart in at home to charge last week and was met with a red flashing light on the car’s charging point and a red error message on the screen stating Error bring to workshop! or words to that effect. I little alarming on a 3 month old car. Unplugged re-inserted the same warning, the car still drove but would not charge and the app reported a charging error.
I went in and called my Mercedes dealer who booked it in for a service diagnostic check for the following day.
Went back out to the car to get a picture of the error message and the red socket light was no longer flashing turned the car on and there was no error message. On removing the charging lead and re-inserting it, it was back to normal.
I went in for the diagnostic check and there were some fault codes. I was told that there service manuals advised to re-apply some software to see if the codes clear on retesting, which they did. However I was told if the symptoms occur again they will change the HV battery.
All is well now so, watch this space.
