Re: Not Charging. Main Inverter Fuse blown

The service manager showed me the failed onboard charger. When I got home I opened the back hatch and there was the brand new one on the left side looking forward. Part number is ZHTP1529R by nichicon. I googled "wrecked I-miev" a couple of days ago and their is a complete 2012 motor packa...

Re: Major EV Drive Components Replacement & Costs

JoeS. I have looked on eBay and a mut3 looks to be about $600 US. What exactly will the device do ? I have considered purchasing a second car but at the moment the I-miev workings are still a mystery behind the black curtain. It would be nice to fly somewhere in North America and get a 2-3 day techn...

Re: Not Charging. Main Inverter Fuse blown

I just posted in "Driving the I-Miev" . The onboard charger has been replaced and Mitsubishi will be able to do post mortem on the failed part. The other I-Miev with the exact same problem was on warranty so that tells me the sickness is not just with 2012 versions. I hope I don't jinx mys...

Re: Who says the i-miev is cheap to operate?

I am relieved that I will only have to pay about $850 cdn plus tax, of the $5600 bill tomorrow to replace the onboard charger. Car is off warranty and Mitsubishi is footing the rest. The other I-Miev at the dealership with the identical problem is still on warranty. I hope the rest of your Imiev's d...

Re: Store Dot next batery for MIEV ; C Zero , ION

So locally here in Vancouver BC, the few level 3 stations apparently cost +- $75k cdn and they take 30 minutes to insert a good amount of energy. Level 4 ?? to give you twice as much in 5 minutes seems like fantasy.

Re: Major EV Drive Components Replacement & Costs

Hi Don. My I-miev is in the shop now with a suspected faulty charger. I got to looking at used I's yesterday in Canada and the cheapest with low Kilometres is $7000 in Ontario. Would an I-miev in Ont. have rust or corrosion problems as I am thinking of buying one as a spare. Where should I look to e...

Re: Not Charging. Main Inverter Fuse blown

I just talked with the service manager and he says the on board charging unit has failed.
I said from what I have read they are quite expensive.
He said yes, about $4000.00 cdn.
Waiting now to see if Mitsu Canada will give any help, as that part is off warranty.

Re: Not Charging. Main Inverter Fuse blown

Sorry I should have been more clear.
The dealership where I took my I-miev, claim they have sold 72 units.
That is over a number of years and maybe it is only the 2012 models
that might develop the problem.
