Re: Level One Charger Won't Charge

Ohiofriedcharger, glad to hear the EVSE and the car talk Level 1 again. Don't forget that Mitsubishi says you should be using a GFCI-protected outlet which ensures proper grounding, but a normal outlet works fine as long as it's correctly wired.

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!
