Stuck Charge Cable? Bulletin that you are not going to like.
If the charge cable will not release, here's what JLR is telling their technicians:

Title I-PACE Charge Cable becomes stuck in Charge Inlet
Last modified 25-Jan-2019 00:00:00
Symptom 203000 Basic Electrical
Issue: The charge cable (any level/type/mode) becomes stuck in the Charge Inlet and cannot be removed.
Cause: The charge cable cannot be removed due to locking actuator pin position.
Action: STOP! All service activities on the vehicle. Do NOT use the manual release for the charge cable, quarantine the vehicle and do not attempt to move the vehicle. Contact LTS via a TA for further instruction.
OK, this is the biggest WTF I've ever heard from an auto MFR. Exactly what are you supposed to do? Leave the car in the customer's garage for a month? At a public charging station? At the only DCFC or L2 charger at the dealership?
I could understand them doing a traction battery disable then removing the cable, but to just leave it there? That might not even be an option.
