I thought the most weird part about this whole issue when I had mine replaced was they told m e Y didn't share the same part (charge port) as model 3. bizarre to me but I'm not expert so I didn't care to spend the time to ask more. Been 400 miles since fix and all is good for what its worth to those waiting to be fixed.

We just rolled our Model Y off the lot and this same error popped up a few blocks down the road. Returned it to the delivery shop and they cleared the error by doing some basic troubleshooting (they plugged in a charger)...of course, by the time we got home, the error was back on and now after 100 miles and lots of error message chirping, we have an appt with the shop to get it fixed next week. Will report the fix.

Update: fix seemed straight-forward. Shop says they "found charge port connection cover making intermittent contact." So "removed cover adjust contact plates to make better contact"

Will pick it up soon and report any follow up issues - sounds like its resolved.

As a side note, the shop was full and seemed VERY BUSY with a lot of other cars in - they had to keep ours overnight and finally got to it about 24 hours later. The app is very helpful for tracking all this.
