Apologies if I've posted on the wrong place, I'm new to this. (Feel free to delete it or move it to another thread)
Here goes.. I'm in a bit of a pickle with my OBC and have been advised by people on the AEVA (Australian EV Association) that there are some sharp characters on this forum and to post on here to see if anyone here would be able to help out.
Otherwise the story is as follows:
It's a bit of a long story but basically Keivan (car's name) died a few weeks back. I got a new 12V battery which allowed me to get it home to work on it. It still wouldn't charge. I have had some guidance and help from a mate (Rob) up in QLD and did a diagnostics scan to find error code PA14AD.
I watched this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynFKclo
... l=SydneyEV and did mostly what they said to do. Minus replacing the heat transfer paste.
I plugged the charger in and heard a pop. When doing so, the charge light flashes on the dash or the charger ready light turns off. The initial attempt short circuited the garage door. There was also a chemical smell coming from the OBC when I opened it back up again. Not sure what it could have been..
If you haven't noticed already I'm a bit of noob when it comes to EV maintenance and knowledge of electronics. I am a dog walker and use my Minicab MiEV for work so I need to get it back on the road ASAP
So I took it to a guy (Russ) who converts ICE cars to EV and sells chargers. He used his MUT3 tool to scan Keivan and found the following DTCS:
POA09 - DCDC Converter fail
02 - Unconnection of battery (load connection abnormal - main battery not connected)
04 - Control power supply voltage
06 - AC Input voltage abnormal
29 - Pilot signal fail
39 - PFC (power factor control) circuit output voltage abnormal
43 - Inverter over current abnormal
Russ suggested I get a new OBC/DC Converter from Mitsubishi Australia (they don't even have the part number on their books) Graham from Suzi Auto in QLD might be able to send a much cheaper used one (which Russ doesn't recommend because you don't know how many charges it's had and if it's been faulty before etc. Or maybe.... I try and work out how to fix all these codes on the current one I have.
Do you guys think I should get a used one sent down from QLD or would anyone be able to help guide me to fix the current one by any chance?

Any help/tips or guidance would be really appreciated
