I have a 2020 ELW that I fear may have a failed OBC. After my last ride for the season a few weeks ago, I parked my bike in my garage and was charging it up to meet the range specified for long term storage in the manual. Around approximately 46% I got a notification that my bike had stopped charging and the breaker had tripped for my garage. I reset the breaker, unplugged the bike but it will no longer charge. When I plug it in, the EVSE starts blue as normal but turns to red in moments. I’ve tried different outlets in my garage, clearing the fault codes, and checking the fuses to no avail. I haven’t yet called the dealer as I have a few months of winter to do that if need be but I’m trying to see if I can avoid a trip there if possible. Anything I’m missing Or possible solutions? I have attached the codes for my bike. The first is before I tried clearing the codes and the second is more recent.

I have not yet been able to try a different evse. The only person I know who has one lives a fair distance away. I don’t think that’s the problem as the blue light indicator on mine acts as normal but consider it a possibility.

A couple of thoughts:
1st, according to the LiveWire service specialist at my dealer, the “H” at the end of the DTCs indicate that the code is “historic” and has resolved itself; and
2nd, have you tried clearing the codes, riding the bike (even for just a few yards/meters, and attempting to charge again?

Wishing you good luck!
havent and probably won’t be able to ride at all for the foreseeable future here even just a little. I did clear the codes once and nothing did change. The insight in the DTCS seems like good news as it may just be the EVSE. But won’t know more until I can try a different one.

This afternoon, I cleared the codes again, plugged her into the same outlet I’ve been using and she began to charge with no issue. The only change from previous attempts was I let her sit a full week untouched and I brought the EVSE inside the house in that time frame. I’ll charge her up to around 65% and go from there. thanks for the help everyone.
