Re: not charging my iON, cell or CMU or BMU problems

Merci beaucoup!

We have to figure out how to re-program the VIN to re-use salvage parts--but it is a tightly coupled system that will be difficult to crack...

Re: not charging my iON, cell or CMU or BMU problems

The LTC6802 is a purpose made Lithium cell monitoring chip with analog voltage inputs and transistor drivers, but it communicates with digital data over a serial port to the big square (quad flat pack) microcontroller chip. Then the microcontroller communicates with digital data to the outside world...

Re: Failed traction battery. How many weeks does Mitsubishi make you wait?

Such a shame that they know so little about how the car systems work. Hopefully they will realize it after they examine the cabin heater, and will charge it off against the warranty work when replacing the pack. If they don't offer as much i would press and ask them to do that as goodwill especially...

Re: not charging my iON, cell or CMU or BMU problems

By "digital component" do you mean the LTC6802 chip shown in this photo, or are you talking about the microcontroller or CAN buss chips? The LTC is a generic part and could be de-soldered replaced with a new one. Inspect all those little yellow chip capacitors for cracked solder joints or ...

Re: Decyphering iMiEV and iON CAR-CAN message data

Howdy CZeroOwner and welcome to the forum, thanks for sharing your findings--every little bit helps. My car is in the shop to have the pack replaced and haven't been keeping up with the PID work.

Re: not charging my iON, cell or CMU or BMU problems

Howdy albert, Sorry I didn't think thru this module swapping clearly-- the cell numbers are determined by the BMU and then programmed and stored on the CMU (cell monitoring) boards located on each module. The BMU doesn't care where in the pack the module is physically located, and the CMU will still...

Re: not charging my iON, cell or CMU or BMU problems

Swapping two modules is a great idea, it may be a lot of work, but maybe it doesn't take too long to open the pack after you have done it a time or two... When the key in at ON but not to START or in READY mode, then the main contactors in the pack are not energized and no pack current can flow. Dur...
