You might have better luck with inserting a piece of wire into the connector rather than trying to reach in with your meter probes. If you use stranded wire, and spread out the strands, you should be able to be sure of decent contact.95eagle wrote: ↑Tue Aug 27, 2019 3:34 amYes. I agree as I indicated in an earlier post for an open diode. A new one in the pilot line would not work. However, I am not convinced that I had good contact while probing between the pilot pin and ground.
Am I the only one who had great difficulty in probing that charge connector? Never seen anything like it. Should be straightforward. I could not make contact with the pin with a straight in approach. I had to probe along the side of the pin which was iffy at best. I have a second 2012 Leaf and it is the same way as far as probing those pins.
Thus, to eliminate the possibility that I did not make contact on that pilot pin, I will put a diode in the Bosch wall charger pilot line and see what happens.
If you unplug the other end from the OBC, it should be pretty easy to check continuity through the cable. I'm about 80% sure you have a "open" blown diode, and you'll have to either replace the diode or the OBC. There really aren't too many ways for the cable assembly to get damaged...95eagle wrote: ↑Wed Aug 28, 2019 8:47 amThe diode fix did not solve this issue. Ordered an OBD 2 reader. Will see if any trouble codes show up. Wish there was an easy way to check the cable from charge port to OBC. The cable snakes into the innards of car and hard to even visually follow it. Slowly narrowing it down to a probable bad OBC. May just spring for another OBC (used) and swap it out. See what happens.
