No worries, Gary - I was ribbing you for not checking the books.garygid wrote:Sorry Andy,
I thought you were saying that you were convinced that an un-powered e-nozzle just being plugged in would NOT stop the car from moving.
Since the Proximity circuit does not go back to the EVSE through the e-hose, and knowing that you are usually right, I thought that you had some "Service Manual" information that indicated that the LEAF did NOT actually USE the Proximity Detection to immobilize the car.
Apparently I misunderstood, Sorry.
I thought that I was not asking you to search for something that you had not already found.
Again, my appologies.
Not trying to say I was convinced it wouldn't work, just trying to figure out if it Would and why. A friend has been beating me with the need to be precise, so wanted to stick with the absolute 'knowns.'
I still can't point to a place in a manual that proves that the car powers the proximity line's 5V all the time, but it would have to provide power even when the car's off so that it can detect the charge plug.
Sorry to doubt your most exhaulted EE-ness.
