    Huh. Does it charge normally at 240 V? Maybe something with the relays in the HVJB?

    Yikes! This is a good reminder to make my new S to a Supercharger and make sure it works. :)

    Could be any number of reasons. The only way to know is to see the errors it's throwing.

    If you're also getting "Car will not start", most likely is a leak in the pack connector gasket, as I'd earlier documented.

    How many kilometers do you have on your car?

    What percentage of charging do you DC fast charge?

    they are coming to pick it up on 2nd june and leave a loaner its done 17k miles and i only use the superchargers once every two weeks

    it originally stopped charging on sunday at a supercharger (it had been raining) i unplugged and restarted and was fine then a fault showed this morning, i called the service center and the told me it was them that knocked out dc fast charge after looking at the logs, and it needs to go in for investigation.

    Yes - I had this message before. Apparently there was a leak near the charge port which resulted in some water ingress (your issue may of course be different). Charge port and a cable (inside car) needed to be replaced.

    Car was in and out in a day and has not happened since.
