    Looks like the "touch" indication is stuck.

    First rule of computers: When it doesn't work, Reboot. Push both steering wheel scroll wheels down until screen goes into reboot. You can do this while driving, even, as it is not connected to driving. I would recommend doing it while parked as it may be safer for you to be watching the road, not the screen.:smile:

    Thanks, will try resetting it tomorrow. I know the secret to fixing computers, but for some reason didn't think of resetting this one...

    Oh, you hadn't heard about the various colors of glowing rings around the battery icon based upon how may kWh you've pumped through the battery so far?

    So at least you've reached the first circle of enlightenment, you'll have to ask Dante about color rings past that point, he is the grand master in battery testing!

    Mine did the same thing today and remained frozen and could not open the charge port door to hook into a J1772 at work. I had to do a re-boot. This is the fourth time I've had to do a re-boot since "upgrading" to 5.8.8 about 7-10 days ago, the first time for this issue.
