Re: MCU 20A 450VDC fuse investigation

My only gripe is that the package incurred customs fees and a resultant customs delay as ordering two fuses pushed the total value over the threshold where customs charges apply in the UK. :evil: (Tip to anyone ordering in the UK - if you're not in a hurry to complete the repair order one fuse and ...

Re: Troubleshooting and repair for On-board Charger (OBC), DC-DC Converter

Thanks for the post, very helpful. I have ordered the capacitors from RS but they are out of stock so I have to wait until april 30. Does anyone knows other places to order these capacitors from? This looks like a similar one to that: https://uk.farnell.com/vishay/s102m59z5uu83l0r/cap-disc-z5u-1000...

Re: Hi a new guy here - some general questions

I just took a quick look at how many were for sale on "autotrader.co.uk" - they are pretty rare it seems. 2 C-Zero's, 8 iOn's, and 2 i-MiEV's - ranging from just under £6k to £11.5k (there are 5 petrol "i"'s too - these are a lot cheaper, £2.5k to £6.5k) There are 904 used Nissan...

Re: Hi a new guy here - some general questions

They're a very rare sight here. I've only ever seen two on the road other than mine, ignoring any I've seen at EV meet ups etc which don't really count... Even at charging stations I have never encountered another owner of one of these charging! As a nearby garage sold loads of these at a discount,...

Re: my 2013 Peugeot iOn will not charge :(

Seems like same charge cable/EVSE as mine. Mine will not always charge and I suspect the intake cable is broken. But how do I get of the wires without damage the rubber protection in the intake?

Re: Troubleshooting and repair for On-board Charger (OBC), DC-DC Converter

Does it mean: a) The capacitors themselves are fine but were underspec'ed for the job, for example too low a voltage rating, or wrong type of dielectric ? b) The capacitors were spec'ed correctly but there was a bad batch of capacitors fitted in a date range that don't live up to their ratings ? Th...

Re: my 2013 Peugeot iOn will not charge :(

Fingers crossed it holds. :D Ta :-) I used some squirty silicone conformal coating - though not as deep as the black stuff that was there before. Not sure I understand why that area is potted, but there are other capacitors on the same board completely exposed. Could it be a high voltage area? I ma...

Re: my 2013 Peugeot iOn will not charge :(

So far, so good - it seems to be charging fine after replacing the 2 capacitors and the fuse.
