Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

Jray, Would you mind giving your feedback on my thread regarding fast charging high mileage batteries? I’d like to know if you’ve seen the same behaviour from your car.

Thanks

Observations and Questions about a high mileage battery

So my miev has 144K km on the odometer. Canion reports the capacity at 29.4 ah and the range has decreased significantly. I would say it's 75 km max. The RR guage is the most accurate ever as there is no capacity remaining below the turtle. I commute in the car (80km daily) but I only use it for sho...

Re: Inverter to power refrigerator during power outage

We recently lost power for 72 hrs due to a huge windstorm on Vancouver Island. On the second day I ran out and bought a 500 W inverter (1000 W peak) and powered our fridge and a few lights for the remainder of the outage. The inverter did shut down a few times I assume b/c the load was too high when...

Re: Onboard Charger / DC-DC Interchangeability

If I remember correctly from my extensive search for a replacement charger the 2016 OBC looks the same as the 2013. The connectors are different so I had to remove them from my 2012 OBC and rig them to my "new" 2013 charger. It's not pretty but it works. one of the coolant connectors is in...

Re: And now my I will not charge!!

An update on this. There is a newer DCFC in my area that DOES work fine with my car, it's the older versions that no longer work for me. I plan to contact the utility that owns them for info. Could this be a software or firmware issue with the chargers? There are not very many i-mievs around here so...

Re: And now my I will not charge!!

Whew! I was hoping that it was not related to the OBC.

What issues would prevent quick charge from initiating?

I haven’t heard from greenlots yet as to what DTC 25003 means.

Re: And now my I will not charge!!

Charliejulliet removed his onboard charger completely and uses a portable chademo. So the obc must not be involved.

Any suggestions on troubleshooting this issue?

All I’ve got is canion but I’ll pick up one of those mut3 clones if it would be useful.

Re: And now my I will not charge!!

Coulomb, Chademo level 3 charging is what is not working.

Kiev, that code comes from the fast charger display. I believe it’s made by ABB but I’ll check later. It also states that the session was ended by my car.

Re: iMiEV as workhorse

Nice Jray, that must have been fun and I'm sure you impressed a few people. I finally installed a wiring harness using Ben Nelsons instructions. I have been wanting to ever since my neighbour brought home a utility trailer and said I was welcome to it. https://i.imgur.com/mUc7jI0.jpg This is a load ...

And now my I will not fast charge!!

So its been a month and my new OBC is working well however I have tried two different fast chargers in the last week and neither would charge my car. The error code I get from the unit is DTC 25003. I assume this is a trouble code. Can anyone translate it into english? A little more info. I have suc...
