Re: Public Charging Problems Log

Saturday 18th May: the eVolt rapid charger at Roybridge failed to validate my ChargePlace Scotland card or revert to whitelist. I knew for a fact that this meant that Chargemaster's servers weren't responding properly to the rapid charger, which was perfectly functional. The Chargemaster assistant o...

Re: Public Charging Problems Log

As requested, I'm reporting issues with the new ChargePlace Scotland rapid charger installed in the East Renfrewshire Council public car park at Broom Shops, Newton Mearns: 1) It doesn't meet ChargePlace Scotland's own spec. As a BP Chargemaster Ultracharger, it can't deliver charge on AC and DC sim...

For example, in the early days of charge point installation, many contractors refused to insta...

Re: EV system warning light on Nissan LEAF

At long last this issue has been fixed. It transpired that the earthing cables inside the charger were loosely sitting in their "chocolate box." The design involves two fat, heavy duty earth cables being squeezed into one very small hole, which inevitably causes them to squeeze each other ...

Re: Leaf cable fault

Speaking of corrosion on LEAF cables, has anyone ever encountered rust on the current carrying pins at the Type 2 end? Mine are looking a bit corroded but still work fine. Understandably, for safety purposes, it's a tight space to stick a scouring pad into - any recommendations for how to remove the...

Re: EV system warning light on Nissan LEAF

Hi Neil. No further progress. However, your suggestion that it could be a software fault is worth investigating. I'll ask the dealer to perform it when it's in for its MOT, although that'll be the end of April next year. Sit tight!
