    2A/2B always seem to give me a big problem. My car won't charge in 2A at all, while other cars have no problem doing so. When I charge in 2B (100+kw), if another car plugs into 2A, it will stop my session and show a red ring around the plug. I have to restart my session manually to get it going again. This was actually reproduced a couple of times today. Doesn't happen on 1A/1B or 3A/3B. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    What was the outside temperature at the time? It could have been a cooling fan issue with the SC itself.

    I was at Harris Ranch on Thursday and Sunday night this weekend and noticed a cone blocking off bay 2A both times. 2B worked just fine.

    Does anyone know when 2A will be back in service?

    I had a similar issue. My charging session in the 2nd stall from the left (not sure whether it is 1B or 2A) was halted when another charging session started in the left-most stall. This was on July 11 and happened twice, after which I moved my car to one of the empty stalls towards the right side (can't remember which one).

    I charged at the second-from-left stall and had no problems, even when another car pulled-in to the left-most stall. I am 90kW limited. Not sure if that is related or not. This was July 4th afternoon with temps at about 110-112F (according to the car). Also came back to the same stall on July 8th and had no issues. Can't remember if another car was charging or not.
