Looking for a couple of used cells

Hi All, My battery is getting on in years. The capacity is bouncing around 24 AH and I have identified 4 cells that are very weak. I have two good spare cells and I am looking for at least 2 more. I'd be happy with anything above 30 AH's I'm hoping to replace the cells this year as the cold weather ...

Re: Trouble with gearbox, un-drivable at the moment

When it binds up, only driving backwards will get it to let go again. This is not an uncommon problem on old drum brakes that are in need of some attention. If reversing gets you unstuck it's almost certainly the rear drum brakes to blame. I know this happened a long time ago now, but I want to let...

Re: Add another OBC Failure

PV1, Well, it charged to 70% and stopped. I replugged it and it continues charging. I have CaniOn running to log data. So the charger may not be bad, but on its way to failing. It may be on its way to failing. My first charging problem "fixed" itself and the car charged fine for 3 days bef...

Re: Trouble with gearbox, un-drivable at the moment

So I get to work this morning and my car was back to normal! I was quite relieved and I checked it five or six times throughout the day and then I drove it home. I downloaded Hobdrive and it showed no error codes. I am going to post in the Hobdrive thread and see if anyone has succesfully used it to...

Re: Trouble with gearbox, un-drivable at the moment

Are you having some really cold weather in your location? Last week was down to -8c but today its around +10c Is the gear indicator on the instrument panel is showing an incorrect reading as you move the lever thru the gates? I'll check this first tomorrow. I didn't notice i would guess that some t...

Trouble with gearbox, un-drivable at the moment

:cry: I drove to work today, parked and plugged in as I always do. When I left at the end of the day the car was slow to move, it seemed like the e-brake was still on but it wasn't. I pressed harder on the accelerator and it lurched repeatedly as it moved forward almost like something in the gearbox...

Re: Replacing Peugeot Ion 2012 OBC with I-MiEV 2017 OBC

Radi513,

Can you post a picture of the OBC? The videos in the link JoeS provided are of my car. I think the 2015 OBC is the same design as the 2013 I used. If it came with the cables then you should be able to change it out.

Re: Swapping 2013 for 2012 OBC - Helpful Videos

I learned quite a bit performing this swap including the correct names for the parts :lol: .

The next time I spend some time on my car I'll take a video of what the whole installation looks like. I need to check it anyway as some of the connections I made were meant to be "temporary".
