Tesla Wall Charger Communication error

5521 Views 23 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  GJETSON
I have a Tesla Wall Connector that I installed last year & have been using the JDapter with no issues up until the last week. I've since developed an intermittent communication error (6 red flashes on charger) that either doesn't allow charging or shuts off charging if it has started. I had the fortunate opportunity to try another, not as used, JDapter last night and no issues.
Anyone else experience similar problems & if so, what the fix was? Plugs, terminals, receiver etc. all look fine.

Using this Tesla to J1772 adaptor to charge a Bolt with the regular Tesla charger is more kw than a standard L2 J1772 correct? (9kw I believe rather than 6kw)
Nope, charging is the lower of either EVSE or car. The Bolt is limited to 32A, so 7.2 kW @240V.
So the adapter is only useful if there is no J1772 L2 or CCS around?
The adapter allows you to use the versatile Tesla Gen II EVSE. You can also use it on Tesla destination chargers. If you don't own a Tesla Gen II EVSE, and don't intend to use a Tesla destination charger in a pinch, it is of no use.
Having it would open a large number of free charging locations but realistically the $200 to buy it would almost never break even.

Since it won鈥檛 charge faster than a J1772 that kills my main interest into the adapter.

It only makes sense if I were to ever go on a road trip and there was zero J1772 or CCS available...which is highly unlikely.
