low voltage error. Mine does the same thing at 3 of 11 locations I tried.Academiguy wrote: ↑Fri Mar 12, 2021 7:05 pmHas anyone else had a defective Nissan-brand EVSE that came with the car?
I picked up a new, 2020 SV Plus about two weeks ago. I’ve been trickle-charging it using a third-party EVSE I got a few years ago with an earlier EV. Today I tried the Nissan EVSE, the one that came with the car, for the first time. It plugged into a NEMA 14-50 outlet and started charging but within a few seconds stopped. The ready (top) and fault (bottom) lights are solid and the charging light (middle) blinks...according to the documentation that came in the bag with the EVSE, that means it’s faulty and I should contact a dealer. The thing is brand new—I literally just unwrapped it and plugged it in for the first time! Has anyone also experienced this?

If the 14-50 receptacle is fed from a 208-volt circuit (common in industrial locations) instead of a 240-volt circuit, the Nissan EVSE will stop charging after a few seconds with indicator light combinations you describe.

It’s possible the 240 outlet is miswired or only getting 208–it’s at my wife’s office building so I don’t have any control over it. But I’m glad to hear that no one else has had a defective unit!
Or you can get UL listed units made in North America (Grizzl-E and Clipper Creek are a couple different brands) for about $200 more.
