Re: Remote fob range extension?

Doing some more Google searching, I found a YouTube video that shows how to double the range on regular key fob remotes. Basically, you remove the single 3V CR2032 battery and replace it with two 3V CR2016 batteries, effectively increasing the power to 6V. Opening the remote for the iMiEV, I see tha...

Yes, it is!!!!!! I only get about 35 all-electric miles, but that's enough for my round-trip commute. We are now an all-EV household!

Re: Remote fob range extension?

But . . . . since you will now always be leaving work with a full charge, getting in and setting it on MAX heat will warm it up pretty darned fast - You may use up 25% of your charge in the first 5 miles, but you'll be warm by then True! I'm just so happy that I will no longer need to dress like an...

Remote fob range extension?

Has anyone managed to find a hack to extend the usable range of the remote? Or any method for initiating the pre-cool/heat process without using the remote (e.g. cellular hack, networked EVSE, etc.)? I finally, Finally, FINALLY got my work to install a Chargepoint EVSE. This will be my first winter ...

Re: Some trouble with AC on my C-zero

Can someone post a link to the "A/C Issue" topic where a previous poster said there was a video of the sound the A/C was making? I want to see/hear if this is the same sound my A/C is making. I rarely ever use the A/C because I actually like the heat during the summer here. So, it hardly e...

Re: Mitsubishi website

In the US, aren't car manufacturers required by law to provide 10 years of replacement parts availability for any model year? If so, then Mitsu should be on the hook to make parts available for iMiEVs until 2026 or so, right?

Wait. Were the 2016s ever actually released in the US?

App for EV owners to communicate regarding charging?

I'm searching for any kind of app that allows EV owners to easily communicate with each other regarding charging opportunities. More precisely, allowing an EV owner that needs to charge to easily contact another EV owner who is currently charging and asking if it's okay to unplug them to charge, or ...

Re: ComEd's Hourly Pricing Program

I live in the Chicagoland area and switched to ComEd's hourly pricing program 18 months ago. To date, I have saved 24.8% ($311.19) vs. ComEd's standard residential billing program. I've been very pleased with the program and its savings. Of course, it's not for everyone. However, if you are able to ...

Re: Steering Wheel Thumb Control Issues!

A couple years ago, I had an accident that kept my Meepster in the shop for an extended time for repairs. It seems like these issues on the steering wheel controls didn't start up until after that. I don't know if the issues are related to the accident in any way, though, as none of the damage or re...
