Hopefully someone can help. When the engine is off the control panel is showing the hook up cable is connected when it is unplugged. When the engine is running it shows to be charging as normal but there is the annoying Cable! Warning beep because it thinks the cable is plugged in.
Everything is working as normal on and off a hook up. There are no errors on the control panel diagnostic and a reset hasn’t cleared it.
Any suggestions?

The CP can see the cable is plugged in(as the charger sends a signal to the CP) but the charger is not charging, check the charger output fuse.

Loz - I think you've misread the OP, its showing as plugged in when the cable is disconnected.

Switch the trip to off (green) in the rear cupboard.

You could try a hard reset by disconnecting the engine battery, leave for 5 minutes and reconnect.

You will not need to recode anything.

I tried that when the control panel reset didn’t work and there was no change.

What happens when you plug the hook-up cable in?
Does it charge?

Then disconnect the output from the charger and see if the symbol goes (to test if the fault is in the charger or the CP)

Have you tried switching off the power switch in the rear and unplugging thinking out loud

As @andyinluton said above, this all happens without the cable attached so no mains power being supplied.
Just wondered if throwing the switch may.have some odd effect

No change on the panel when the hook up is connected but the kitchen socket does work.
Charger output? Is that the 3-pin type connector on the charger? I did check to see if that was loose.

no, not the mains input plug, the output cables.

Do you have access to a diagnostics tool? Might be worth seeing if the computer is showing any errors.

The CP is not on the canbus so can't be interrogated.

Have you followed the process to read the fault codes from the unit directly?
