Yes, I confirmed this at the Drive Electric tour here in Hillsboro. If the J1772 connector is plugged in, shorting the proximity pin, the light indicating that it was plugged in popped up on the dashboard and prevented me from putting the vehicle in drive.GroundLoop wrote:If the L1 charger is connected to the car, but not powered, does the presence of the proximity pin prevent driving?
If so, it would be easy to make a dummy "plug" that just goes into the J1772 port on the car and spoofs a present-but-unpowered EVSE.
So maybe what you want is a switch, hidden down in the engine - er, motor - compartment that provides a contact simulating the one the J1772 connector provides.garygid wrote:Having L1 plugged in, even if unpowered, SHOULD keep the car from being driven away.
However, it is too easy for a "visitor" to unplug the e-nozzle.
I would hope that we can discover a more-sure solution.
I've driven it with the door open and seat belt off when I wanted to align it in the garage better. It drives with the door open.garygid wrote:Can somebody check the door-open driving?

Per the J1772-2010 specification, between pin 3 (ground) and 5 (proximity), you need to place a 480 Ohm resistor (or equivalent resistance).GroundLoop wrote:For a "no-modification" solution, what does the proximity pin require?
Good to know - I can't remember now where this came up, and I apologize for continuing the rumor. I definitely won't repeat it again!Randy3 wrote:I've driven it with the door open and seat belt off when I wanted to align it in the garage better. It drives with the door open.
Totally correct! I forgot about the switch bypassing the 330 ohm resistor!garygid wrote:It might require 150 ohms (the 330 in series is normally shorted by switch "S3", and the 150 becomes 480 only when pressing the e-nozzle's "Release Latch" button.
