I'm not now but it does look like my only option. Suncoast Porsche parts states that locking the car after activating the charger will prevent the software from kicking the charger off but that didn't work for me!

The same thing happened in the BMW motorcycle world when they switched to CanBus. Circuits would shut off. Why bother. Owners just connected the charger pigtails directly to the battery post clamps which really is the best way to charge a battery. I've done that on all my cars and motorcycles.

Hold on!
Don't bother your dealer yet. You said light above the "Motorcycle"
Wrong setting!
I'll say it again.
For Porsche which uses AGM batteries, your CTEK needs to be set to the "Snowflake" button mode. Snowflake light needs to be on.
Got it?
