Porsche battery charger fault.

I have one of the Ctek chargers that I picked up a few years ago and apart from a sticking button problem (fairly common apparently and since revolved), I just noticed today that the amber/green indicator lights appear to have stopped working. The other indicator lamps (amber) which depict motor cycle or car appear to be working okay. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and if the charger is actually still working? Thanks!

I guess if you read the value of a battery with a  battery test meter and then applied your charger for several hours and checked again that may be a way to prove it is working. If you know a security engineer they will have a battery testing meter for for their servicing duties. 
 
I dont think they output a voltage until they have sensed a battery in the circuit but you may  be able to check charging voltage with a multimeter when connected to a battery. 

Think Positive, Test Negative.
