Default Contactor issue? On-board battery charger issue? Or both?

Hello,

My car doesn't charge anymore. It started with a Check Engine Light when the battery was full. After driving I plugged the car in and the normal clicking happened and it seems charging. After around 30 seconds again clicking and stops charging. A hard reset did not solve the problem.

Two codes are being generated:

P0AC4
P0A7B

The two contactors were bad and are changed now but the car still doesn't start charging. It seems that the on-board battery charger (C131119301000) broke down at the same time. Is this coincidence? Any thoughts about this?

Thanks in advance.

Bart

More than likely the OBCM was the problem not the contactors but without the contactors in hand to test you couldn't confirm that

Thanks Harleyguy!

Can the OBCM be repaired? Only few occasion ones are available. I am told KA doesn’t have any new spare ones left...

Thanks. So the replacement was a couple of years ago, or do some cars have some warranty remaining?

My Karma doesn't charge from 240V for 2 weeks now. Changed cables and also went to a public charging station.
My OBCM was changed (new from Joe) 3 month ago...
I'm connecting the car and it clicks, the power plug icon lights up in the car, but it never charges for real...

It still takes charges from TOM in EV and ER mode. (does this pass the OBCM?)

Any Idea, where to look?


Is there a sound file available what kind of clicking we have to expect?

Thanks
