Re: Traction battery going bad or something else?

Got an email from the service manager this morning. They have received the new battery pack for my Meepster, but they are still waiting on the specialty lift and tools required to install it. He said normal the tools would arrive first. He hopes they will have them within a few days. https://sconten...

Re: Traction battery going bad or something else?

Anyone know if replacing the main battery pack resets the warranty on the battery? Or do you only get the remaining life of the warranty?

Re: Traction battery going bad or something else?

The service manager at Bigger’s Mitsubishi just called me. Mitsu is going to go ahead and replace the main drive battery. He said they have the battery packs in stock at their facility in Atlanta. Normally, it would only take a couple days to get them delivered. However, the issue is the lifts and s...

Re: Traction battery going bad or something else?

I have an appointment to drop the car off at the dealership tonight. They will have it all day tomorrow to do whatever inspections and testing is required. For those who had similar issues and took your iMiEV in for warranty repairs, did the dealership give you any hassles about not following any so...

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

Hey, kiev! So what's the current status of your battery? Are you still trying to play around with it yourself? Or have you finally taken it in to a dealership to see if you can get a warranty replacement? Unfortunately, I do not have the tools or the time to do all the DIY checking and experimenting...

Re: My Car is Only Charging Up to 12 Bars

My 2012 iMiEV SE also just started having battery issues. It only charges up to 12 our of 16 kWh bars. My car has 43,000 miles on it. I already created my own thread regarding my issue before I found this thread. So, I will subscribe to this thread also and follow along.

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

Okay, I'm following this thread now as I seem to be having the same problem you are. My Meepster just recently (Sunday after Thanksgiving) started charging to only 12 bars. I have submitted an appointment request with my dealership and am waiting for a call back from them. Unfortunately, I do not ha...

Re: Traction battery going bad or something else?

Okay, so I found the thread below from another owner in Australia who sounds like he experienced the exact same issue I am having. I didn't see that thread until after I posted. I'm sorry for posting a new thread on the same topic, but I was just trying to quickly get my issued posted (and hopefully...

Traction battery going bad or something else?

I have a 2012 iMiEV SE. I bought it in July 2013, and it currently has 43,000 miles on it. Up until this past Sunday, it has charged fully (16 out of 16 kWh bars and around 70 miles +/- of RR) every time I have allowed it to charge until full. The Friday after Thanksgiving, we went on a mini vacatio...
