    Has anyone experienced the issue where the charge port continually flashes amber instead of green? This started last night. The car alert states that the charger is not fully inserted but this is not the case . It is charging at 16amps instead of 48. I reset the wall unit and it appears to be fine and it remains green when charging The title of the thread should have said 10 miles/hour versus 30 miles/hour.

    Looks like the Tesla wall unit is bad. They gave me a new one today to try since it looks like the charger connector that plugs into the car is bad or the cable itself.

    So as not to confuse people about what the problem was, the charger is the 48 or 72A device that is in the car. What you installed yesterday was the HPWC (now just called Wall Connector).

    Correct and it was only charing at 16A instead of 48A so Tesla replaced it. Now I am back to 48A. thanks
