It is a known problem with this type of charging system. The large 3 wire plug internally gets loose causing a no charge condition. All that is needed is a replacement plug. They are available at any good auto parts store for about $10, or the dealer for $20. It is a good idea to change it ASAP, since there has been reports of electrical fires due to this plug.
