I Hope someone can help me out here..... When I plug my vehicle in at home, the charging light on my dash doesn't come on. There is a solid green light on my charge device. I have tried to unplug and replug everything to no avail.
I took it to the local hotel, and it did charge at the Chargepoint station. Can someone give me some advice? You can email me directly at [email protected]
Thanks!

    Someone will have to start by pulling codes and looking for a possible proximity detection circuit error in the Battery Charger Control Module with your charge cord plugged in. The voltage displayed in the scan data should be 4.2 to 4.8 volts when the charge cable is disconnected and drop to approximately 1.5v with the cable connected. Your charge indicator not lighting up means that the car does not see the cable connected though the proximity detection circuit so the handshake between the charge cable and the vehicle isnt taking place. That has to happen for the charge cable to turn on and allow power to flow to the battery charger in the vehicle.

    The operation of the charge port on your car and your charging cable are goverened by SAEJ1772 regulation which you can read about here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SAE_J1772
