I don't think that there are any fuses between the charging socket and the on-board charger. One thing to try is to check for continuity on all five wires from the charging socket to the on-board charger.

When I had another wiring harness problem fixed, the dealer also replaced the charging socket - wire harness. They said that it had worn on a frame part.

Interesting, good to know, thank you.

I have an update, and it's good news. After slow charging it and driving somewhere last night, I came home, plugged in my L2 charger, and presto! It works again. So now I'm really not sure what it is. But, since the problem has never happened at any other charger, I have to suspect the issue is with it, though I have no idea what it could be.

In any case, things are ok for now, and I'll report back if anything changes.
