    Battery Won't Charge

    So I ran out of juice about a mile from my house (don't ask, long story, please don't bash me). When we tried to charge it using a 20 amp generator, it won't charge. Tried resetting the system with no luck. 12v is reading that it's at 80 according to our rapid charger. Saying it doesn't recognize charger. Charger was working fine yesterday.

    Did you do a load test? Might need a new battery. How old is it? What voltage are you getting off the battery. It should be around 12.4 volts.

    You might need a new alternator, since you ran out of power, driving home. Not charging.

    Load test is at 80 according to our speed charger. Battery is original from 2016.

    Sounds like you need a new battery. What the voltage off the old one?

    My original battery only lasted 2 year. One of our other cars, just 2 1/2 years.

    Well, it's an electric car, so no alternator. It's saying unable to detect plug-in.

    What do you mean by "Load test is at 80"? The concept of load test isn't meaningful in the 500e. What is the voltage on the 12V battery?

    With the car turned off, do you mean that when you plug in the charger, the dash turns on and displays "Unable to detect plug-in"? Please post a photo.

    There is a reason why a portable gas generator won't initially work with your EVSE. You need to make a Neutral-Ground bonding plug. A typical inverter generator will have a duplex 120V receptacle. Plug your EVSE into the generator's receptacle, and the bonding plug into the other. Be aware it will take a long time to get any appreciable range on the car, about 3 miles per hour of running the generator.

    Another thing I could add is that the generator does NOT supply clean sin wave.
    As a result the EVSE does not accept this power supply.

    How fare from home are you? Can the car move at all?

    You can always push it slowly. If you can put it into D, then tow it. Slowly. Regen may recharge some battery and get you home.
    Or get to nearest house and ask for 30 minutes access to outlet. Make sure ignition is OFF. This is important as otherwise it would start heating the battery first before charging. At least that is what my 2014 does.

    Towing can be done, but at walking pace speed in N. Otherwise car will complain.
