Hello everybody! I have a Leaf 2011. It is not accepting charge from 3 different L1/L2 chargers, including one on Nissan

Was trying everything possible, including the known issue with diode, checked the connector J1772 and wires from it to the charger in the car, but nothing could find. It does charge from CHAdeMO, though.
Hooked up to Leaf spy; does not produce ANY DTS's. Any help will be deeply apreciated.

You need to post exactly what you have checked, tested or tried so far. Otherwise, it is a guessing game.

And, what happens when "it is not accepting charge"? How many beeps, if any? Which of the blue lights light up, if any and in what pattern?

Do you know where to view the DTCs in Leaf Spy Pro? (Pro version is required.)

Have you measured the voltage of the 12 volt battery when the car's off when it's in this bad state?

Are you new to Leafs? Have a timer set? Have you pressed the timer override button on the dash?

First of all, I’m assuming from your join date of 4/29/19 that you are both new to the forum and likely have just acquired a used LEAF. For both of those, congratulations and welcome to this gang who shares a like interest. If I’m wrong, I apologize for my conclusion.

As you’ll quickly learn, there is a lot of troubleshooting for almost any issue, just like on any other vehicle. The other posts above ask questions designed to narrow down the possible root cause. I would ask one more: has the car EVER charged correctly on L2? If not, you can quickly go through the questions above, but it might be a job for the dealer sadly no longer under warranty as a MY2011. At least you can drive the car with L3 charging if that’s at all convenient for you.

Good luck, and please share your outcomes with us all.

As a newbie, he/she likely turned on the charge timer and doesn't know about the override button to allow charging outside of that timer hours.

OP, to rule that out please see this post:
