Charging the hybrid battery

Ground fault breaker in the charging cable

Updated 7/23/2018

The control unit for the charging cable charging cable has a built-in ground fault breaker that protects the car and the user from electric shocks caused by system faults.

If the control module's built-in ground fault breaker is tripped then the car symbol illuminates with red constant glow - check the 230 VAC socket.

Warning

Charging the hybrid battery must only take place with grounded and approved 230 VAC sockets. If the capacity for the socket or fuse circuit is unknown, ask a licensed electrician to check the capacity. Charging above the capacity of a fuse circuit may lead to fire or damage the fuse circuit.

Important

The ground fault breaker does not protect the 230 VAC socket/electrical installation.
