Seems right, the service manual suggest the PDM will throw a fault if over temperature but doesn't mention coolant level except as a cause of the over-temperature. I have no idea how long it would take to go over-temp with a bone-dry system. I'd imagine it wouldn't present as a total failure to initiate charge, but that's a guess.
Matters because the On Board Charger shuts off after plugging in EVSE. Coolant has leaked out the bottom of the car. A 2012. In process of repairing leak.cwerdna wrote: Why does it matter? I wouldn't want to run low on coolant as other stuff like the motor is cooled by that loop, besides the OBC. If there's not enough, add some but also one should look into the source of the leak and fix that.
I would not and do not drive it until repaired. For one thing, I cannot charge it up. In the process of repairing it. The coolant is definitely low. It runs onto the ground as fast as one can pour it in the coolant tank.powersurge wrote: Well I would not drive the car if the coolant level is low.... Fix it first before you drive. Also, a bit of a leak does not mean that the coolant is low..
