    Has anyone noticed their 3rd charge status light blinking at night, while parked and off?
    I've encountered this situation 3 times now. The last time was yesterday, Sat at 17:53, while being parked for several days in the garage. No sounds, not plugged it. But the right-hand light, when looking head-on, was on, blinking. And the red security (?) light was blinking, although the car was unlocked. The dash was on, showing the odometer and a half-round in the center. When I opened the driver's door, the charge light turned off and no indications or errors or anything unusual on the dash.

    Any ideas?

    I have experienced this before and I haven't a clue what causes it.

    It is tendering the 12V battery (the 3rd charge status light blinking in the indicator).

    Amazing what happens when you read the manual. There is a list of several different patterns of the lights and what they mean.
