I found a workaround! I share it with you, you'll tell me if it works for you too! Here is the story: when I get to my home, after I put the car in Park position, opening the door to get out of the car sets contact Off. So I had the intuition that the same kind of link might exist between opening a door and stopping charging process. So, what I tried was to push the start/stop button to start the electronics, before opening the door. And it works. Obviously, when you open the door, there is an alarm saying "you're not seriously leaving the car with contact on, are you? The good thing is that, with door opened, you can switch off contact, and charging keeps going on... Yees! :D And, charging keeps going when you set contact off (door opened).

Hi Marc,
What do you mean by "contact on"?

Hello all. Sorry for my English. Contact is the french word for Start/Stop button. So "Contact on" for me was "Power On" = "Engine started".
