You can check the diode in the OBC pilot circuit. Let's see if I can find you a thread... try this thread. Was it a GE Wattstation your car was connected to? There is a known issue with those and Leafs, when charging is interrupted...
I'm not sure about the brand of the station, but it wasn't a GE Wattstation.
I checked the OBC pilot circuit. I got very high resistance in both direction: 2.2 MOhm in the correct direction and out of scale (open circuit) in the opposite direction). According to the link you posted, this points to the diode on the charger. If it's only the diode, or something else was damaged, is still unclear.
I got 4.3 V on the proximity detection pin, which should be OK.

I think you mean lightning, and it is not clear that is the cause.
I suggest you pull DTC codes with LeafSpy for a start, and clear any codes **after** you write them down
And report here in detail *which* light is flashing and its pattern
Yes, I meant lightning, sorry for my english.
I'll have to get an OBD dongle. I have an OBD scanner but it's useless, from what I understand. Even the dealership's reader gives no error.
No light is flashing at all.

Did it continue charging at the charging station, or was the charging interrupted?
The charging was interrupted.

You could try to source a used OBC and have a third party EV shop install it for you. It would probably be much cheaper.
I found something on Ebay, used but still expensive. I'm also looking for used Chademo home charging station, the way that I can bypass the charger, but that's even more expensive. I'd like to find a low power one, so that I don't overload the battery, but Chademo and low power don't get along well together.
I'll sleep on that one more night, I guess. Too many thoughts currently going on on my head, I'm unable to focus on this one...
