Even though we turned the car off again when we were done, the Bolt did not resume charging until it was unplugged and re-plugged. Lesson learned. Don't mess around with the car while it is charging!
The more I think about this, the more I think it's not right. I turn my car on and off when charging sometimes to see the charge rate indicated on the cluster. I did it the other day to run the rear washer. I've never encountered this issue.
I've turned the car on/off while charging to check the SOC and the charge was always completed w/o disconnecting/reconnecting the charge cord.
