ChargePoint public chargers

Has anybody had trouble or success charging their Lightning at a ChargePoint station?
I was in Boardman, OH and was having trouble finding a level 4 fast charger. I saw that the Hyundai dealership there had two chargers on their lot. I got excited I had visually spotted two chargers not on the map.
The chargers looked set-up and ready to go. I quickly made a Charge Point account and was excited to get my fast charge on.
However, at both chargers I got the same error. The charger said that it was waiting for the vehicle. The Lightning displayed a nondescript "charger error - see owners' manual".
Bottom line, I was unable to make use of two perfectly operable fast chargers.
Any thoughts on this experience?

Install the ChargePoint pass in your phone's wallet and take advantage of ChargePoint's (and EVgo) willingness to send you an RFID card. Also, I learned to spot the "right" ChargePoint chargers. For me, I've never had a failed charge at these: https://www.chargepoint.com/businesses/stations/express

The CP ones that look like they have midrift bulge haven't been so hot. I don't fast charge a lot, but I look for these in Plugshare as 62.5 kW and 50 kW backups for the frail EA network when I'm route planning.
