    So the pilot signal in my HPWC appears to be dead. The unit has power. The green light is on. I can still charge my car with my UMC (really glad I installed a 14-50 too). I plug the HPWC into my car but nothing happens...

    I've pushed the reset button and I've cycled power several times. Any suggestions?

    I only saw this thread now or I would have suggested cleaning the contacts a lot sooner. This is a common problem especially with the first gen connectors.
