Re: Is my battery dying ?

According to user piev, all cell failures are due to a lack of electrolyte. He has studied numerous technical papers looking at cell life factors and boiled it down to this simple conclusion. These battery cells operate by reversible chemical and electrochemical reactions involving the anode, the ca...

Re: Troubleshooting and repair for On-board Charger (OBC), DC-DC Converter

The On-board Chargger (OBC) is in the top chamber of the unit; below that there is a coolant chill plate in the middle layer; then in the bottom chamber is a whole other board dedicated for the DC-to-DC Converter (360VDC to 12VDC) behind the bottom lid. This bottom chamber board may be where you hav...

Re: No READY. P1A15 error. Condenser charge timeout.

Thanks for sharing your repair experience. It looks to me that there are 2 legs in that circuit, either of which could cause this problem. One is a real voltage drop in the path involving the photocoupler, FET2 and the bleed resistor. The other is an error (thermally-induced) in the voltage measurem...

Re: No READY. P1A15 error. Condenser charge timeout.

Did yall check the other components in the schematic, such as the photocoupler PC7 and the FET2? What about the value of the resistors in the voltage divider, and all the little capacitors? If the FET2 were slightly turned ON by leakage thru the PC7, then it could pull the voltage down by 8-10 volts...

Re: No READY. P1A15 error. Condenser charge timeout.

Thank you kirq4e for the follow up with your solution. What month was your car built according to the label on the door jam. Or what is the VIN, to search for recall notices. That chip is an op amp made by Analog Devices, AD8677. It is used on the little hybrid board soldered to the main board. The ...

Re: Got the RBS and car with exclamation mark through it errors.

It's a regular 12V battery available at any parts store or wallmert, type 151, same size used in mazda miata. Hot weather may aggravate a weak battery situation. You may be able to chargge it up with a regular 12V battery chargger in order to drive to get a new one. The OEM has fill ports to check a...

Re: Got the RBS and car with exclamation mark through it errors.

Replace your old worn out and weak 12V Aux battery before you do some real damage, such as having it fail during charging and taking out the On-Board Chargger, a very expen$ive item. It may seem to be okay, but they do wear out and losing the 12V is catastrophic in an EV. A gasoline car doesn't matt...

Re: Dash warning beepers

Seems like i had the same concern a couple of years ago, and wrote a post about how to disconnect the key switch and put a jumper in the seat belt switch connector to get rid of that annoying noise. Plus i wrote about pulling out the knee shredders located below the steering wheel. i'll have run a s...
