I'm giving this thread a bump, because something similar happened to my 2011 Leaf, but unlike you...I'm stuck in insurance purgatory.
Quick abbreviated story: Middle of the night( my Leaf plugged in to the Blink unit) we hear and feel a TREMENDOUS crash and flash, and we come outside to see the electrical pole across the street on fire. It burns itself out, but the next morning my Leaf has a fault symbol on the dash. Turn it off and back on, and the indicator light goes away. But, go to plug it in that night and it doesn't charge. The Blink unit won't recognize it.
So I figure it is the unit which has been damaged by the lightning, because I used a QC that day and the car charged fine. Order a new Aeroenviroment unit, have it installed (1000 total) and....it gives a vehicle fault symbol. Yep-it's the car.
Now here is where it gets tough... the insurance denied my claim because they say the fuses in between the onboard charger port and the charging unit would have blown if lightning was the cause. But, if the cause was the EMP (as someone else mentioned) wouldn't that not necessarily be true? I love the car, AND Nissan, but right now my insurance company is killing me because of their inability to understand the possible intricacies of an EV.
