Charging cable for Nissan Leaf not working

    Hi I have a 171 Leaf yesterday I was trying to charge in Work but the part that goes into the car wouldnt "click" in, it did go on an all 3 lights flashed continuously but it didnt charge.
    I tried this morning with my own charge point in the house and same thing. I have a granny cable and that connected no problem. Do I need to by a new cable and any idea where I would get one, or is there somewhere I can get this repaired. Its a 6kw cable and I am in Cork

    I've heard of cases where a rubber seal can become detached or warped on the cable and prevent it from connecting into the car 100% - examine the end that connects to the car closely and see if there is anything there.

    Take a look at this thread:

    It'll likely be the rubber seal after coming out of its slot and stopping you from pushing the cable all the way in. Easy to fix yourself with just a flat head screwdriver. You can pop out a little plastic piece that holds the seal in, reseat it, pop the plastic back in and done.

    Thank you both, I'm afraid me an technical are not words that go together well. I went to my Nissan dealer the Services supervisor said put it in the car and lift it slightly until it "clicks" an that has worked its a bit finiky and took a few goes but its working now.
