Re: Add another OBC Failure

Fri Oct 23, 2020 10:11 am

My charging troubles have returned. Been driving Koorz this week and charging at work. Day one and two, everything was fine. Day three, had one hiccup but a replug fixed it. Today, I replugged four times, then switched to a different station and replugged a few more times, each time the car only acts like it’s charging for about a minute. I tried cleaning the contacts in the charge port, but no improvement. As it sits, I’m over 20 miles from home with 16 miles of range, although there is now a functioning quick charger I can use.

A quick video of what’s happening. I don’t have my Android phone with me to see details.

Did you have a door or the trunk open? It seems like i have had a no-charge event happen when a door was open, maybe just a coincidence but worth a try.

There are so many faults which will set the HV error light that a DTC readout is really needed to know where to start.

Both with door open and closed, although I did get it to charge on level 1 just now with the door closed. I’ll let it get some charge, then try level 2 again.

Well, it charged to 7 bars on level 1. I just moved it back to level 2 and so far, so good. :?

Made it home last night after a near full charge on level 2 (I unplugged before it finished). Went home, fully charged on level 1 with no issues. Back at work, it fully charged on level 2 with no issues.

Could it be the MiEV remote transceiver having issues and not the charger? A level 1 charge seems to reset something and let the car charge on level 2 without any cutouts. My previous datalogs from March show no signs of trouble from the battery or AC input.
