Thank you in advance for any insight and help with this. I just posted a similar thread on the '3' forum as well just in case anyone with a 3 ran into this situation (we do have a S and a 3, and both cars are having the same issue with the wall charger). Due to construction at our house the wall charger was disconnected about 6 months ago, and was just hooked back up yesterday by a reputable electrician. In the interim we were charging at a local Service Center. When I went to charge the 3 last night I was unable to open the charging door when pressing the spot on the charging handle. I had to open the port door using the fob (held down the trunk button), and then I was able to charge the car without any problem. However, I again ran into a problem when trying to remove the charger from the car-------I had to press the spot on the charging handle at least 2 dozen times. This morning when going to charge the S, again the charging door didn't respond to the charging cord. It eventually did just before I went to use the fob. It is charging now without any issues. Before charging the S I did one of those resets-----held the two scroll buttons in on the steering wheel while depressing the brake. Prior to disconnecting the wall charger we had zero issues with it----worked great all the time.
