So for right now, I am having some difficulties with my first attempt at charging. Dealer told he just plug in the Type 1 charger that comes with the car either to a regular electrical outlet. I am doing that. Earlier when plugged in the power and charge lights were both lit up.
Had to unplug temporarily last hour. Since then, I re-plugged and now only the power light is lit.
Also, the manual shows a little electric icon that goes on when you are charging. It also was one earlier, but not on now.
The owner's manual said you need to have the parking brake on....it's still on.
UPDATE: I detached the charger from the car and closed the charger door. Got inside the car and started all over again. Now it seems to be working OK. That was, no doubt the problem?
Type 1 and Type 2 is UK/European, Level 1 and Level 2 is Canada/U.S. Which market are you in?
Has the problem gone away and stayed away?
If it is indeed a NEMA 14-30 dryer plug, then you can get a level 2 EVSE with a NEMA 14-30 plug off of Ebay no problem at all. I'd do that in a heartbeat if I were in your situation!
