Limited current (16A instead of 32A) when scheduled charging ?

    As a french owner, I use for my daily charge the Tesla UMC with a 220 V, 32A, single phase adaptator (the blue one for those who know it).

    When I plug, I can tune the charging current up to 32A with no problem.
    But if I schedule a charge (e.g. for using off-peak rates), my ability to choose current is limited to 16A, which is not enough to get a full battery overnight...

    Does anyone know the reason of my problem, and how to cure it?

    Thank you !

    This seems to be a fairly common problem with EU cars, especially with people who only paid for the single charger option. Somehow the car confuses itself and ends up retaining a lower current limit at your charging location when running a scheduled charge.

    Talk to TM staff and they will give you a set of instructions that can help the car "un-learn" the lower limit and so do scheduled charging at full speed.
