Re: Warning Codes - Car with ! Exclamation Mark

Later when I went to move the Meep back to the driveway, it would not start anymore. When I turn the key to Start, the dashboard lights pop on, and there is an initial "ding" sound, but not the usual ding sound of the "Ready" state. Then the entire dash and every light in the ca...

Re: Warning Codes - Car with ! Exclamation Mark

Thanks! Picked up a Diehard 151R battery and swapped it out when I got home from work. My Meep started up right away and is humming along now!

Re: Warning Codes - Car with ! Exclamation Mark

What 12V battery does the iMiEV use? Is it a regular 12V battery like any other car uses? Or does the i-MiEV use some specialty 12V battery? My Meep just died last night. I had moved it from my driveway out onto the street as I had some people coming over to my house to pick up something store in th...

Recommendations for new brake pads/shoes/rotors/drums?

Hey, all! Been awhile since I've posted here. Mostly because I haven't been the primary driver of our i-MiEV (Meepster) for a couple years. My wife has been driving the i while I have been using our Pacifica Hybrid to commute to/from work. Lately, the brakes have been making that scraping/squealing ...

Re: iPhone X cannot find iMiEV Bluetooth

The service manager emailed me back last night. He said I can bring my Meepster in any of the nights next week when the service department is open late. He said he'll take a look at it, and it's possible there may be a firmware update that can be applied. If it's just a firmware update that needs to...

Re: iPhone X cannot find iMiEV Bluetooth

I just emailed the service manager at my dealership that helped me with my i-MiEV battery replacement. I asked if he's heard any compatibility issues between the i-MiEV's head unit and any newer phones, including the X. I asked if there are any firmware updates available that might help the BT audio...

Re: iPhone X cannot find iMiEV Bluetooth

Back and forth with Apple Support via Twitter DM. They keep trying to get me to contact support for the vehicle manufacturer (i.e. Mitsu) instead of continuing to bother Apple with it. They say that since my new iPhone X has successfully paired with other BT devices, then the issue is isolated to th...

iPhone X cannot find iMiEV Bluetooth

My wonderful wife surprised me with a new iPhone X yesterday! I was very shocked and happy with this gift. I spent the evening gleefully getting everything set up and transferred over from my old iPhone. Everything was going great with the new phone until I got in my Meepster this morning to drive t...

Re: Traction battery going bad or something else?

Good luck, Kenny. I hope your dealership takes care of you just as well as mine did for me. I guess I got lucky with having an awesome local Mitsu dealership. They were wonderful and took care of everything without me having to stress, worry, constantly call, harass, or anything. All I did was drop ...

Re: Failed traction battery. How many weeks does Mitsubishi make you wait?

I just got my 2012 back from the dealership last night following a main battery replacement. It took them three weeks to the day from when I first dropped my Meepster off at the dealership to being able to pick her back up. I'm guessing I got lucky, and my Mitsu dealership is one of the better ones....
