As a little background history, I have been driving and charging this car for 151 miles since I installed a rebuilt motor by Old_Houseboater in late July (see topic 2015 GEM es moves very slow) . The car has been performing very well.
A few nights ago, my city power went out during a charge cycle on my 2015 eS. There was a red flashing light on the charger. I unplugged the unit until the next morning. I turned the key on & my screen went blank. I plugged the charger back up & completed the charge cycle (green light on charger) with the display on. I unplugged AC power, turned key on & released brake. No display no movement. I checked the fuses the next day. All fuses have continuity. With Assy_Required direction, I checked the 3 and 6 pins (Red and Black) on J2 on the PDSM with the Main Battery switch ON. I have power 13.59V. The display only comes on when I’m charging.
I looked up Drive and Power System Error Codes on page 5.7 of 2013 Gem Service Manual. On the Fault Description: Display on the liquid crystal display (LCD) is blank, I tried to follow the Corrective Action for sympton no display no movement. I checked fuses F9 & F13 for continuity - OK. I disassembled my steering column to get to D2. I couldn’t find the D2 connector on the IPS harness so I used the J2 connector on the PDSM, No power on pins A & G with MDS on. I tried pins K & G with MDS on and the key on - NO power. Now I have to repair the circuit.
