i checked that the ground is fine i even tried other outlets on different breakers.
i also replaced the aging 12 volt battery when i got the car due to it not holding a charge.
the chargers have a solid ready light

There might be a charge timer enabled. Not sure on a 2012 where the button is, but you should find the charge timer override button to the left of the steering wheel:

Press it, and the middle charge light on the dash will come on. Then, plug in the stock charger (EVSE) and see if it starts charging...

A charge timer conflict would present as the three blue dash lights flashing one after the other, in sequence. I call it the "Charge Timer Dance." It's distinctive. This sounds like an EVSE problem or a car charger issue - maybe a bad diode.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Yeah, I was not sure if the three light dance occurred on a 2012 as I've never owned one. Figured it would be a simple thing to try...

Codes from LeafSpy would help tremendously. If it's a bad diode, you can diagnose it as shown in this video:

Did you get a resolution? Mine is also doing the same thing.

Thanks.
