My luck gets worse.
Not only did my 13amp. lead supplied with the car fail after 6 months but now my 16amp. cable to my external Polar Chargemaster unit has failed after 12 months.
After speaking to the very helpful staff at Chargemaster the wall unit was rebooted but the problem still existed. The red charge light in the cab flashed intermittantly showing connection but not charging.
Tried the cable at my neighbours Polar unit connected to my car but same fault showing that it is the cable at fault. Ordered a new one from Evconecters should get this next week.
Charging cables seem to be the achilles heel of these vehicles.

I'm not sure that your tests prove that it is the cable - could equally be a fault in the wiring inside the car. Can you try your cable on someone else's EV?

Thanks Maby
Had not thought of that as vehicle charges ok on my garage 13amp cable.
Will look at going to my local dealer on Monday to see if they will test for me.
Cheers,

Went to my Local Dealer Monday. No Luck their tethered Chargemaster unit was also down!!
Saved by the bell yesterday as the new - Generation 2 Type 1 to Type 2 Charging Cable arrived and "Bingo" we are back on the 16amp charge. Supplier was EV Cables Ltd.
But cable failures at the rate of one a year at a cost of £130 is going to make my eyes water!! :o
