Hi guys.
Sorry that I write all my questions to same topic, but maybe it's better for saving space on forum :)
I have strange issue with my Charging Port Light Ring: when I plugged in today the Light Ring doesn't work, any reactions.
I checked setting inside, Illuminating is ON, so it should to turn on when open doors, plugging in and so on, and it always worked before! Just today something happened and it's not work. But the car are charging and everything works ok.
I read that customers had such problems with Light Ring, but usually it's one of four quarters dies, but not a whole ring.
Does anybody have some info about it?
Thanks!

Ford replaced my light ring under warranty as it would only light up halfway. I learned a valuable lesson when plugging in at a public charge station. I had plugged in and the cord was in such a way that the car next to mine parked way too close and drove over the cord. It got pulled down and cracked my new light ring plus I couldn't hook the cord back into the holster. The woman came to leave (Tesla S) a few minutes after I was there so I was able to hang up the cord and get in my car. I didn't notice the crack untill I got home and plugged in. Now I always make sure the cord is close to my car.

I guess it sucks to realize that you could have avoided this damage (by better placing the cable before you left), but also sucks that the Tesla driver was careless enough to pull in without making sure they didn't drive over anything.

Did you complain to the Tesla driver?

I don't remember any mechanical damages or something... It's just stop working one morning when I came to the car.
And the problem is that I don't have a quality service here in Ukraine to fix it.

Mine's dead. When I got the car, it had one segment that worked and one that flickered. Now, dead. They just suck, lots of folks with same problem -- I turned it off.

Strange that some rings are so problematic.

All four segments on my ring are still working fine (after four years).

Funny, when I got mine at 16k, 25% and 50% quadrants weren't working. Ford replaced it. All works!
