Be sure cable is pushed all the way in
« on: October 27, 2017, 08:03:16 PM »
Caution to other Tesla owners.  I encountered a situation where the cable was not fully inserted into the car.  It was ever so slightly not all the way in.  When I came out to depart, the car had not added ANY energy.  I could have sworn it was OK when I started charging.  I see the green light.  Perhaps is jiggled or temperature expanded slightly.  So now it push hard to ensure there is a tight connection!

PS - I also had a cable malfunction after 2 months.  Tesla replaced free of charge.  But of course, I had to pick up the cable in the other ICE car!
