Get in car the this morning and CEL was on. Pull codes and get P0D3F and P1E00, power train issue. Quick research not much other than maybe charging issues. So reset and clear codes. Roughly about that time the AC stops once codes are cleared. Turn off car same AC problem. Go back home connect to charger and wait 5min and restart car. AC now working and codes still gone.

Any thoughts? Waiting at dealer now to see if a tech can look at it today but likely they can't. Alabama summers are hot and I need my AC!!

This DTC mostly sets during power outages or brownouts that interrupt the stability of the AC voltage being provided to the receptacle and ultimately the on-board charger (OBCM). In some cases this can also be attributed to a receptacle or even an EVSE (120V charge cord or Level 2) issue and in rare cases it can also be the OBCM itself. Also make sure you don't have your 120V charge cord on a circuit that is shared with anything else (like a garage beer fridge)

Your car's A/C should not be affected by simply clearing the codes, but code clearing generally needs a complete key cycle afterwards to reset some of the fail-safe system overrides the DTC may have triggered. (like disabling charging, A/C etc)

Personally I wouldn't be taking it to a dealer until this has happened more than once, and then you MUST NOT clear the DTCs before taking the car in
