Re: Level One Charger Won't Charge

Thanks for the advice, Joe. I bought an electrical outlet tester yesterday for $7 & found that many of the outlets I tried using with the charger had open ground circuits. It's no wonder my charger wouldn't work with them! Thanks again to everyone for all of your suggestions!

Re: Used 2012 I-miev remote climate control

I tend to think a 120v electric heater would be more efficient than the car's preheating system with a remote but the remote would be nice to try. I'd be willing to take my chances on a used one for $100.

Re: Level One Charger Won't Charge

It turns out the tech was correct at the local dealership I stopped at. The onboard computer must have locked out my level one charging cord until the car received a couple of charges from other levels of charging sources. This evening my level one cord started working again! For now, at least, it a...

Re: Level One Charger Won't Charge

Hi Don- Ever since my blunder I've been testing every outlet I've plugged the power cord into for correct grounding & polarity. The cord or the onboard charger's computer is keeping it from receiving power. I'm plugged into a level 2 at a dealer right now & it's charging fine. I was hoping t...

Re: Level One Charger Won't Charge

Hi kiev- I stopped at my local dealer & was able to get 7 miles worth of charge in around 20 minutes using their level 2 charging station. At least I know my onboard charger isn't fried. The tech there said they've had episodes in the past where a level one power source got blocked by the car's ...

Re: Level One Charger Won't Charge

I have it plugged into a grounded outlet now and the charging light isn't displaying on the charging cord. The green ready light is flashing and the amber light is out so it's not charging. Either the charging cable or the onboard charger isn't allowing it to charge. There's no easy way to test the ...

Level One Charger Won't Charge

I just purchased a 2012 MiEV with a level one charger. I drove it around 15 miles home and the display showed 46 miles of range left. I plugged the charger in for around 45 minutes. When I went back to check it looked like the battery was already fully charged so I unplugged it. The next evening I p...
