I have owned my Model 3 for about 1 month now. Recently (within the last week or so), I have noticed a clicking sound coming from the charge port area after parking the car. When I plug in my home charging cable, the icon remains white, cable does not lock into place and the clicking sound continues. On the Tesla App under Charging, there is a note that says the charging cable may not be inserted correctly. If I go back into the vehicle and press on the Brake, the charging cable seems to lock in place and charging process begins.
On another occasion, I experienced the same issue and so I tried turning off scheduled charging. The charging cable immediately locked in place and charging then started normally.
Is this normal during scheduled charging and I just never noticed the clicking? I thought that the charging icon turned green or blue even if the actual charging wasn't scheduled until later.
Thanks for any feedback!
