Re: Removing side graphics?

I've always liked the look of the blue door graphic with the plug on the white car. In fact for a while I was looking to replace my silver car with a white one with the graphic. At one point early on in my IMIEV ownership I tried to get that graphic (different color) for my silver car but it was dis...

Re: 12V battery BCI Size?

151R is the correct group size. Changed my lifeless original (2012) battery today for a new Interstate flooded lead acid.
Getting the positive connection disconnected was tricky since there is not much slack in that cable.
All is good.
Stay charged my friend.

Ignition/door keys

After five years of use I finally had to change the battery in my every day key to the car. After completing that task I decided to check the spare key that has been sitting in a drawer unused for five years. Lo and behold it did not work. Thinking perhaps it was the battery too, I opened the case ,...

Re: after a full charge how many miles supposed to show on the miev display?

Recently my range remaining display is only showing 45-47 miles of range when the car is fully charged (all 16 bars displayed). Usually it will indicate 57-59 miles. The car is a 2012 model. This happened after the car sat unused for about five days with the car charged to about 12 bars. Any thought...

Re: Parking light bulb replacement

Both my parking light bulbs have stopped functioning. Does anyone know where the fuse is located for these bulbs?
I've searched the manual and the fuse holders but was unsuccessful.
Stay charged my friend.
