PEM Issue

My 2.5 is on its second PEM in under 28k miles (since 2011)!
The latest PEM (new not refurbished I was assured by Tesla UK) was installed in Oct 2017 and they threw in an extended warranty for it too (luckily).

The car was charged up today (7kw Standard). I drove it no more than 200m when it came to a halt with Powertrain Errors and had to be recovered. I attach screen shots. I’ve tried several times to get it going again without success.

The car is also now failing to charge: It quits with the same power train error message in < 1 min and the charge port then flashes red before it tries again....and so on.

By the look of the debug messages it seems ominously like a PEM IGBT issue, but last time it happened it would still accept charge. I’m wondering if it could be something else in the PEM seeing as it happened immediately after a charge? Coincidence? Prior to this it has been running great without any indications of an impending problem. Would be wonderful if it turns out to be something simple like a loose cable

Any ideas, thoughts or things to try? I have logs available too.

Currently waiting for the tech at Tesla UK to get back to me too.

Thanks.

Ray.
