Re: I have a secret

The MUT 3 tool is able to read and write data to all the ECUs on the car over the CAN buss thru the OBDII port. The combination meter that displays mileage is on the CAN buss to the EV-ECU, which stores the odometer reading (Data List Item #1) along with numerous other data items in memory and on EE...

Re: Canion

That is just the recycling code number for lithium ion batteries. For example high density polyethy plastic, HDPE, has a recyc code of "2". Your pack is in great shape if you get that sort of range, easily an 88-cell 16kWh pack, especially since voltage is at 360V. The 80 cell packs are on...

Re: I have a secret

Did you buy it from a dealer as a new car or a used car? If so maybe they reset it using the MUT3 tool to give you a "fresh" start on the mileage for warranty purposes. You get a barely used car with a nearly new warranty. They can't sell a car as new with 14k miles, and can't sell a used ...

Re: Maximum Miles Driven on One Charge

Today i wasn't paying attention and forgot about a quick lunch trip, then on the way home drove past a LVL3 when maybe i should have stopped--even just 5 minutes of Chademo does wonders. But i love how much fun and excitement this car creates. The usual daily commute is take kids to school, then to ...

Re: Aux battery short circuit

It's not fair if they start the auction price already set too high. Maybe walk away from it. You have to cover yourself for risking to buy damaged goods. Assume the pack is bad and the best you could do would be to sell off some parts, although almost all of the electrical parts (ECUs) are not usefu...

Re: Aux battery short circuit

There is a fuse (acutally several) on the positive aux battery terminal, plus there is a separate fuse block under the hood and another under the dash. i would try to buy it at auction, but have an upper limit price in your head before you get carried up higher than you want to go. If the main pack ...

Re: 12 kW chademo charging

Howdy Ben, i posted some info about that in the solar charging thread: connect jumper between position 2 and 1 at relay connector, and jumper pin 3 and 10 at the chademo port to cause pack relays to close and reveal pack voltage at chademo port, positive voltage is on the right. And here are some pi...

Re: Re-mapping

Yes definitely replace the original 12V aux battery, almost everyone on here with a 2012 has already done so. Numerous issues and weird trouble lights, starting and charging problems, etc. can result from an old worn out and weak Aux battery. And unless you have checked and added to the water level ...

Re: What is the sound I hear right after plugging in?

It is a fan--it's a circulation fan located inside the right rear of the battery pack. It runs it for a brief time to ensure that the system is working properly. If the fan doesn't work then charging may be limited, and a warning light and trouble code will be stored in the EV-ECU. If the battery te...
