The OBC code 39 is a very specific sub-code related to the Power Factor Control circuit located in the upper plenum of the On Board Chargger which creates the high voltage necessary to recharge the pack. It has nothing to do with the operation of the DCDC.
Error code 39 in the OBC is caused by excessively high AC mains voltage, as measured after the power factor correction circuit in the OBC. Diagbox reports error code 39 as "Fault on the power factor correction module output voltage". Please see my experience with this last year from the following thread:https://www.speakev.com/threads/peugeot ... ge.104001/
In short, when the AC voltage goes above 247v the car will refuse to charge and sets temporary error code 39 in the OBC. The code is informational and the car will charge normally as soon as the AC voltage is back in range.
Although I don't know for sure low AC voltage might also set the same code, however if it can I have no idea what the low threshold might be. In the UK AC voltage is allowed to be as high as 252 volts, so this 247v limitation can be an issue for us.
So it's probably nothing to worry about and unrelated to the fault at hand - just the AC voltage being too high or too low during an attempted charging session.
