The J1772 inlet on the left side of the Jeep is connected to the IDCM (integrated dual charging module) located under the vehicle along the left frame rail. The IDCM is the AC-DC battery charger that converts from 120/240VAC to charge the 400V DC battery.Hi. Brand new Wrangler owner here (72 hours ago) and new to this forum (first post). I might have a similar situation depending on what other symptoms you see. My 4xe won't take a charge through the charging port. I've tried multiple outlets with my L1 stock charger. I've tested the outlets for proper wiring. I've taken my Jeep to multiple L2 chargers. In every single case, there is no indication of any kind. No blinking lights. No goal posts. Nothing on the dash nor at the LED in the charge port.
However, I can charge the battery by using the "charge" option while in the "e-save" mode. So the battery can be charged, just not through the charge port. And yeah, charging via e-save while driving is not efficient energy transfer, but it was for testing purposes.
Since your Jeep is in the shop, you probably don't have access to test this. (Or maybe you already did.) Can you charge via the e-save options?
My other question to anyone on this forum is this: I'm assuming that there is a circuit/module/computer in-line between the charge port and the battery. Is it possible that this device is dead or stuck in some mode that refuses to acknowledge the presence of a 1772 connector (and its power)?
Dealership name with cheap 4xe?I'm not trying to be "that guy", but I can't stand selling a customer a 4XE in any model. These things have coolant leaks sitting on the showroom floor. I'm exaggerating, but I swear everyone we have ever sold is in the service department getting some charging problem, leak or something else related to the hybrid system fixed every other month. I'm not knocking your vehicle. I just don't feel the 4XE is a vehicle that will last very long. It seems like on here there is a new post about some problem with that persons 4XE daily. Also, if we get one in used we can't even give them away.
You're welcome! I'm glad that it was that simple.Thank you RedRacer! I appreciate you pointing this out. Sure enough, not just one but both of the smaller pins (both data, I assume) are bent. They are centered at the root but bend to the side by the tip. Here's a pic... (This angle shows only one of the two but they're both simillar.)
