Since a few days, when I enter the Type 2 cable (connected to powered station or not) I have a yellow flashing icon and battery charging signal is dark.
It looks the actuator to lock the plug is not working.
Few days earlier I was unable to remove the plug using all normal or emergency procedures.
Only by tilting the plug at the same time I was opening the car, I was able to take it out.

Any suggestions?

Apparently one of the actuators is acting up. Take your Porsche in for service; the fix will be covered under warranty. The actuator for the door to the plug-in receptacle for my Porsche failed, and I had to go to the dealer to get it fixed. That's the only issue I've had in two years of ownership.

Thank you. Yes I hope Porsche service close to my home will be able to fix it. They are not used to any hybrid issues.
By the way, in 2 months, I had also a E480 error code on the charger and after contacting the manufacturer in Germany (Heidelberg) we found the error was a earth ground failure inside the power plug connector.... 2 Porsche service said to purchase a full charger at 1200€ ... brrrr
