    Charged with my HPWC for the first time last night. Set scheduled charging to begin at 11pm.

    Went out at about 11:30 and see car is charging, and dash display is on, and indicating charge. Go out again an hour later, and dash still on. Car is locked, with fob not nearby.

    This morning with charge complete, dash is back off.

    This strikes me as different behavior than when i was charging with my UMC for the last few days since I picked up the car on Friday evening.

    Is this a HPWC or scheduled charging behavior... or is this an anomoly?

    Now that you mention it, it briefly crossed my mind after my HPWC was installed. Since the HPWC doesn't have a difference in pilot signals from a J1772, I'm wondering if it's a special condition at > 50A or a change in later software versions... perhaps get your UMC out and see what happens?

    But that requires EFFORT! It's much easier to just post here and have you all spoon feed me!

    Yeah.. I have a mental note to check the next time I'm umbilicaled via UMC... I'll report back.

    My dash stays on after charging is complete. Stays on all night. Fob not in range. Is this normal?

    Mine shuts off as soon as the door is locked (4.4).

    I think that quite a few things about charging status changed in conjunction with shore power mode - not all were required or ideal <ahem>

    LOL. Glad to see you have a sense of humor about it Dave. I'm still hoping that a future upgrade will put the original Power 12 back in action!
