I don't have any idea but I can tell you that I had a very similar experience but mine happened on tuesday. Blink tech support didn't have any ideas. It was also the first time I ever had a problem with my nightly charging. I'm in San Diego too.mikek wrote:I picked up my leaf on May 5th and painfully trickle charged for a few weeks while I waited for my "free" Blink to be installed. After about a week we set up the timers on the leaf.
The blink is set to "Always charge immediately when I plug in". The car is set to charge between 12:01am and 9:00am. It has worked consistently until last night when it just didn't. This sucked. Any ideas?
Check your "Plug-in event" and "Charging event" and "Power event" log on the Blink network reporting as well--it might give you an idea about what happened. If there is no plug-in event at the time you remember connecting the Leaf that night, it may be that the plug did not get pushed in all the way to lock or something? Then see if the Blink tried to start charging when the Leaf timer triggered and if any electricity at all was passed. I have the same firmware, am also in SD, and had no problem with charging last night (or any night, for that matter, even when the Blink log shows lots of errors like yours), FWIW, but my Blink is hard-wired to my TWC router.mikek wrote:Going through the Blink system log there are a bunch of errors.

Odds are that your J1772 nozzle wasn't plugged in all the way into the LEAF. That usually ends up being 95% of the problem.mikek wrote:I just double-checked the charging timer. Timer 1, every day.
I don't remember if the blue lights blinked in sequence last night or not... I'll be sure and watch for this.
My co-worker thought that perhaps Blink did a software push and that the unit did not properly reset? I now have Firmware Version: L2R.1.6A, 035A, , 1.10

Great point. One of the problems with using the timers is that you don't get that immediate feedback, which is why I've gone to immediate charging. If for some reason I don't want to plug in at certain times I don't plug in then. It's a less sophisticated approach but 100% reliable. Not so workable of course if you want to start charging at one in the morning.DarkStar wrote: Odds are that your J1772 nozzle wasn't plugged in all the way into the LEAF.

Just so. The key feedback elements when plugging in are:DarkStar wrote: Odds are that your J1772 nozzle wasn't plugged in all the way into the LEAF. That usually ends up being 95% of the problem.
