No dead battery yet, but I'm still concerned because all three times I got the EV Warning Light when I unplug and start the car from home. I do not get the EV warning light when I'm away and returning home.
I have only ever seen the EV warning light one time: I was using the convenience charger away from home and instead of pressing the button on the handle and removing the EVSE from the car first, I unplugged from the 120V outlet first. That created some arcing and caused the EV warning light from coming on. I was able to drive home without incident, but it likely was not good for the on-board charger.
Normally, when you press the button to remove the EVSE from the car, charging is immediately stopped in order to prevent arcing when the plug is withdrawn. It sounds to me like one of three things is happening in your case:
1) You are unplugging from the wall before unplugging from the car.
2) You are removing the EVSE from the car without pressing the button on the handle (somehow).
3) There is something wrong with the button on your EVSE handle that is keeping it from communicating to the car to stop charging when pressed.
If you are not making mistakes 1) or 2), then you might want to get your EVSE checked to make sure the button is working properly.
