We have a brand new Fiat 2015 500e's and are unable to charge it @ home. Getting a "unable to detect plug-in" error message.We are using an outlet in the garage that does not have anything else drawing from it and has heavier load capacity wiring connecting it to the electrical panel.

We took that car in twice, diagnostic tests were run, other 110v outlets worked just fine and no problems were found. Seems we don't have sufficient electricity at home. We tried charging the car at all hours with only minimal items using electricity.

We are getting an EV level 2 charger installed asap. :?:

Hard to believe the outlet was "not sufficient", perhaps you had a ground fault.

Problem solved with 220 v charger installed. The electrical was just redone by a licensed contractor and checked by another contractor.

ist possible your 110V outlet had issues:
1: use a connection plug that shows if plug polarity is correct ( is the Hot wire really is Hot and the ground and neutral is connected properly)
2: Is this outlet shared by other active outlets reducing curent availability. if it can't pull at least 12Amps without pulling the voltage too low it won't work.
