Re: Wanted: Charging remote

Yes, it should be at the dealership where i bought it but they say they can't find it. They couldn't sell it so used it for people in for repair could use it, and listed it last month. No manuals in it either... If it helps, you can find the manual(s) in PDF form online -- just search "i-miev ...

Re: Car not turning on

So, it was the 12v. Are these special batteries? The dealer is charging me $400, and had to ship the battery in from somewhere?? Dangit. I was able to buy the side mirror on eBay for $75!

Aw, you gotta use it once, just to try it. It's fun to see the bars go up so fast. :)

Re: Imiev/Smart car

And now neither of them will be sold in the U.S. :( Yes, I've mistaken an illustration of the rear of a Smart for an i-MiEV before. I saw this idea posted once here before, but couldn't find it when I was looking for it the other day. It's not even mentioned on the i-MiEV's Wikipedia page. Thanks fo...
