So I finally convinced the wife to use the FFE for her morning commute today.
I just knew she was going to like it. I was standing right there when she got in the car because I was going to show her how to reset the trip log, so that I could keep track of mileage and watts consumed.
She gets in the car, hits the start button and up comes the "Stop Safely Now".
She power cycles 3 times and still nothing. She gets out, annoucing she is "done with that car." Who can blame her.
I get in, and of course 4th time is the charm, it starts right up.
And I drove it the rest of the day with many stops and starts without incident.
But let's go back to the morning.
Just before she got in I opened the back door and put her stuff in the back seat. And I heard a contactor on the EVSE close shortly after I did that. This is not unusual, opening doors with the charger plugged in seems to wake up the EVSE.
I noted that all four quadrants of the charge ring were flashing, which indicates a "charge fault." That's strange I thought as I unplugged the charger cord. FYI I have a Schneider EVSE.
Then the wife entered the car and tried to start up.
On the third try it seems like she did get the "ready to drive" icon, but when she took it out of park, there was no power.
Put a call into dealer, need to follow up on it tomorrow.
So question... those of you who have experienced this "Stop Safely Now" message, what charger are you using?
What was happening with the car in the moments right before getting this message? Were you driving, just starting it up?
