In the middle of a road trip (from LA to Phoenix), my charging port broke...in Blythe California. A small plastic piece fell out, and when I plugged the DCFC, I heard a whirring sound coming from the port. It looked like there was a lever near the top of the port that was trying to move down, possibly to somehow "engage" the charging cable. It would make this whirring sound 4-5 times, then I'd get the "Unable to charge" message. I stuck a pencil in there, and manually pulled the lever down while the charger cable was in the port, and everything seemed to work fine. We made it to Phoenix and the car is now at the dealer. But, has this ever happened to anyone? Can anyone explain to me what broke and if this is something common? I have had this car for 2 years, and a Volt for the previous 3.5, and I have never heard of it before!
