It was almost like a yo-yo. I pulled it up and it felt like a little retraction.How do you pull the wire down? I’ve pulled it up before to emergent release a Chargepoint connector that got stuck, and I can see how you pull the wire up as that does the release, but how do you pull it down? And also while this seems interesting, I’m just a wee bit skeptical as I can’t seem to charge at the EA location near my house but EVGo near my job works fine 100% of the time. Is it something to do with the EA CCS connectors I wonder being finicky with the Lucid?
I can’t comment that this will work for everyone. But it worked for me. I tried at 5 EA stations across 2 locations and 2 EVGo stations at 1 location and got the exact same error. “Charge start error” or “charge initiation error”. Once I played with the emergency release wire it worked immediately at both the EVGo station and the later at the same EA location without issue.
