I took delivery of my 2014 Model S on Friday and I've been trying out various charging options to make sure I know how to work everything. I've had significant difficulty with CHAdeMO and I'm confused about something related to the L2 adapter. I've read the CHAdeMO manual as well as the primary Model S manual and not seeing an answer to the following areas of confusion for me. That's not to say the answer isn't in the manual(s), just that I didn't see it. Getting the blue chargeport-ready light to come on? For the connector to be accepted and locked-in by the charge port, the charge port light needs to be blue. I'm confused as to how to make the charge port active. When I charge normally, the charge port seems to detect my charge cable and turns on. However, with the CHAdeMO that doesn't seem to happen. I was able to successfully get the charge port to show blue once by cycling the car ("on" and "off"). This seems kinda kludgy (not very Tesla-like) and I'm not convinced I truly understand which action I took actually did the trick. For the L2 charging adapter, the problem is much the same. There is no "release" button when using an L2 charger and adapter like there is with the standard Tesla charger cable and plug. How do you have the Tesla release (unlock) the adapter so it can be removed from the charging port. I had a lot of difficulty releasing the adapter tonight when I was charging from a ChargePoint station. In summary, the primary questions I seek insight on are: What are the specific steps available to enable the charge port so it is ready to accept and lock-in a plug (blue light around the charge port)? I'm especially looking for steps to enable the port when the plug itself is not yet powered (i.e. the CHAdeMo process doesn't enable power until everything is already in place). What are the specific steps that can be taken to unlock the chargeport so the plug can be removed? I'm again thinking mostly for scenarios where you are using an adapter (like the L2 adapter) for which there is no button to push to initiate release or when the charging station has shut off because you reached charge cutoff. I'm sorry if these are terribly noob questions that are obvious to others but I would definitely appreciate pointers. Thanks in advance .
