Default Level 1 Charger Plug

So in my attempt to update the male Edison on my USA Subaru Level 1 car charger, I discovered two things. The encapsulating rubber is the worst pain to remove and there are five wires not just three. In addition to the usual line, neutral, and earth, there are pink and purple wires. Just hooking up the 3 power leads the charger works fine but the LEDs on the charger flash a lot and I've not a guide to what they all mean. I'm thinking that the "Jet" brand plug might be a GFCI but it is so sealed and sonically welded that even if I opened it up, it's probably potted inside. Does anyone have experience or psychic insight to the pink and purple connections; possibly a replacement plug source? Photo shorturl.at/azCFU Thank you.

You will find all that you need to know here. There are internal links, so you will have to work some to find everything. But it is there.

The internet is your friend!

Next Question: Why?

Thank you. While a great deal of good information, it does not address portable chargers (like mine that run off of a 120VAC outlet. Were you able to see the photo I linked to?

Default Level 1 Charger Plug

I was not able to see your photo - I got the generic hosting site only. But, that site I linked did include the schematic for the Subaru charger, which is very nearly the same as for my Ford C-Max charger. And my C-Max charger is also running off a 120 VAC outlet, and uses the same plug. You do have to work for it, however.

You could do worse than look at car charger videos on the Mike's
Electric Stuff channel on youtube.
