Re: Tesla-J1772 Adapter

You might want to give Tony Williams a call and tell him about your need for an adapter such as the Jadapter but you cannot wait for it. A few months ago, there was a promotional code to get $160.00 off the $399.00 list price for the J stub. I know it's true because I bought one for $239.00 on the 3...

Re: Imiev 2016 issue

"Quick charging" shouldn't have any effect on the internal charger in the car as it is not being used during the QC session. The external DC charger is providing all of the current into the battery pack--there is no AC power being supplied to the built in charger. That being said, the DC-D...

Re: So I bought the i-Miev.

The kit goes under the passenger side of the rear seat. If it's missing---no big deal. I think the sealant has an expiration date on it anyway and a small plug in air pump is cheap at a box store or auto parts store. Be sure you get one with a long enough cable to plug it in to the cabin power outle...

Re: Feb 2012 Miev with Pack Trouble at 40k miles

What does the CANION report when the vehicle reaches full charge before you drive it? What is the difference between the lowest and highest cell voltage? Drive the car with the CANION active and watch the cell voltages. Accelerate with full power and see if one cell drops dramatically vs. the others...

Re: how to remove the center ventilation unit

If it is like the US I-MiEV, then you need to remove the radio to get at the vent. There is a small cover above the radio that needs to be removed. Then (I think) there are a couple of screws under the cover that need to be removed and the radio and the part that surrounds the vent snaps off. I know...

Re: Hurricane Irma Prep

I would agree that heating something is a bad use for electricity. You would go through the pack fairly quickly drawing a kilowatt of power through an inverter. Better use would be for refrigeration, lights (led of course) and device charging. I live just East of you in Deland and have made my prepa...

Re: Ripped of a protection panel under the car ??

Those brackets are bolted to the body at the front of the battery box to protect it from what you just did. They are bolted to the body with two bolts (look at the opposite side to see how it is an identical part). Part of the front panel that goes under the battery pack attaches to the bracket you ...

Re: GENTLEMEN. I need help.

Some codes are "hard" codes and will stay set even if a code reader or battery disconnect is used to try and clear the module's memory. The airbag controller is one that sets a hard code and the M.U.T. needs to be used to reset it. I had the passenger seat out and accidently put the car in...

Re: Car Insurance and Breakdown Cover

Tell them what you drive, and if they are sharp, they will hang up on you--or sell you a useless policy. Breakdown insurance doesn't work for anything except a "mainstream" car---and even then it's a crapshoot. See what they cover and you will find most of the parts (like the engine and tr...

Re: Extra battery connection

You Cannot connect the additional battery to the inverter as you are bypassing the main contactor which is located in the battery pack. Bad things will happen unless you have a way to connect the additional pack after the "ready" light is on and disconnect it before the "ready" l...
