EV not charging (2015 FFE)

Thu Nov 05, 2020 3:58 pm

Hello World!!!!

I had just finished my regular commute (apprx. 25 miles), w/ 20 miles of range left. I parked my car, turned it off, and attached my Lvl 1 EV charger as usual. However; this time no dice. The charge ring cycled twice, and went dark. The cable indicator shows that power is going, but that's all (the fault indicator is not lit up, neither is the charging). There are no indicators on my dashboard either. I can still drive the vehicle, but I don't want to risk running it bone dry. This happened once before, that time I just let it sit off the charger for 3 days. Then miraculously it started charging after I plugged it in. Any ideas on what going on? Thank you.

This happened to me once, but I found out it was my fault, when I turned the car off I had apparently hit the right steering wheel pad that switched it from charge now to value charge and it had no value charge schedule set. Did you check if your vehicle is set on value charge?

I triple checked it's on charge now, and got a mechanic to come. No codes. The level 1 charger is showing its getting power, and the port ring cycles twice but goes black. I can even hear the normal clunk from inside the car whenever I plug in the charger

I did some trouble shooting, and noticed that the car registers the charger being plugged in (cycling rings) when it's on. But when I turn the vehicle off I don't get any cycling rings after plugging it in. No fault indicator on charger or car still
