    Hi all

    Made it to North of Spain from Dundee in my new ZE40 with virtually no problems. Here (Ager, south Pyrenees) we knew it was a bit of a charging desert so had our granny cable which has been giving us perfect charges for the last 4 days from the 10A supply here at the camp site. Today there was an electrical problem at the camp site. Now, the brick (it’s from a Mini but shouldn’t make any diff and it worked fine) seems totally fine – power on gives green light, plugging it into Zoe gives the usual blue flashing charging light. Zoe, however, gives BCI. Locking car, leaving it for 10 min, resets BCI, but connecting granny charger gives same problem. The car drives, prob have 90-100 miles. Couple of questions
    1) how (un)likely is it that this problem will now also happen with charging posts
    2) renault dealer in Spain 35 miles, France 95 miles (including pass, so just out of range). Does Renault UK warranty apply abroad? We do not have any roadside assistance
    Thanks for your suggestions

    When you say there was a problem with the supply, it may have returned with a high earth impedance (140 ohms or higher)
    This is normally what brings the BCI display on at that supply.It doesn’t follow that you should have any BCI indications at other CPs.
    Good luck.
