I had the same problem once and solved it by reversing the AC mains plug in the wall outlet. Apparently it is also picky on which side the live wire sits. After that I simply put an indication mark on which way I had to plug into the wall.

Does it charge at a public charge station?
Once you go EV, gas is history!

The two small pins behavior is a little bit more complicated : https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/SAE_J1772#Signaling

The 3.5V DC that you are measuring is actually a square wave between -12v and +12v.

Putting AC right on the bike plug will probably not do anything as there is a relay in the bike that cut the circuit through the charger.

I guess that it is the onboard charger itself that tell the EVSE to send AC. If the charger is not giving the order, it will most likely not close the charge relay in the bike and won't charge. :(
