I got my LEAF on Saturday afternoon, and while everything else is going great, I have been having some strange issues with charging.
I have not set any charge timers (none are displayed), and pretty much using whatever default settings are involved.
I drove over to my parents, and plugged in the trickle charger that evening. It turned on, and everything was fine. I came out the next morning to a topped off battery.
After going out for a bit of driving, I returned, and plugged in the trickle charger and left it for a couple hours. However, this time around, nothing happened. It seemed that if I pushed the charge timer off button, it kicked right on.
This same thing happened after I visited another relative later that day. I plugged in, but noticed this time around none of the blue lights showed up on the car display. I fiddled with plugging it in and out, etc. and sure enough, after I disabled the charge timer, it kicked on fine.
Sunday evening, when I returned home, i plugged in the charger and everything kicked on okay with no input from me.
This morning (Monday), after I returned from a quick trip and plugged it in, just the center blue light was solid, and nothing else. The BLINK said "NOT CHARGING". The charge timer off button started charging, after i removed and reinserted the EVSE.
Has anyone noticed erratic issues in the charging sequence? Is this normal?
