Twizy battery saying Stop


Tried charging my Twizy after nearly a year not using it. A bleep comes on and it says ‘STOP’ even though it’s charging. What’s going on? Is is it safe to drive it a little?


Does it bring up the [!] on the lcd dash and also the square battery light?

Yes it bring up all that


Same as mine.
Could be one of a few things.
Renault use a CLIP test to run a battery ‘health’ test. It’ll throw up a few errors.
Could be the charger. Possibly if you have an old one from 2012/13 time frame.
Or it could be the battery itself.
The [!] means 58v traction battery fault.
Charge the car and drive it. See if it come on and off whilst driving.
I am waiting for Renault to come back to me as to what should happen next.

Charged it up and it seems to be working now. Got me a little worried as the car is a 2015 model and I have only had it around 20 months.
Drove ok but only took it out for a short trip.
Will revert back on here if any further issues thanks.

Make sure the 12v is topped up and charging.

Never leave the car for 12 months with no charge on it, the battery needs to be maintained at 80% for optimum health long term.

When sitting for a long time disconnect the 12V battery and have the Twizy stored in a somewhat stable temperature 10-20 degrees c. You can leave the traction battery at any state of charge between 20-80% at those temperatures and it will be fine. The absolute best is around 50%.
