Re: Should I buy a 2010-2011 i-Miev here in Brazil???

If the "fuel" gauge is not indicating the full 16 bars after charging has completed using either level 1 or level 2 EVSE, then there is at least one bad cell in the pack. The charger cuts off when the cells reach the highest voltage allowed (4.15V) and the charge current drops below the cu...

Re: Skinnier rear tires on front rims

The front and rear wheels can't be swapped--they intentionally have different diameter collars that fit to the axle hub. So the lips won't fit, and you'll have to a quit.

Re: Car not charging,..DC/DC converter failure. not what we expected.

It's a dual function box--it does both the dc/dc for the 12V, and the ac/dc for the pack charging. Here's what i think we are looking at: the 3 big electrolytic caps and coil at the rear of the box (bottom edge of picture) are the rectified dc buss , the diode bridge and FETs for PFC are mounted to ...

Re: Car not charging,..DC/DC converter failure. not what we expected.

@coulomb Howdy Mike, welcome to the miev forum. i was thinking those blue caps were like the 2 Y caps of an EMI filter such as this: https://www.emcbayswater.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/radio-frequency-ac-mains-emi-filter-network-emc-compliance.png i scrapped back some of the potting and it re...

Re: Car not charging,..DC/DC converter failure. not what we expected.

Looks like a different layout used in the US 2012 versions--i opened mine up to read that resistor value for you and my unit doesn't have that vertical board such as yours. There was scorch marks under my cover where the inductors and transformer wires got warm and off gassed the plastic tubing. htt...

Re: Wtb 1x front alloy wheel, FS or trade 2x used front oem tires

It's nice to have a good job and be able to afford new stuff, but there are lots of folks working their butts off for not much money who can't afford new tires. So there is a whole other side to our economic spectrum for used tire sales at the budget tire shops.

Re: Car not charging,..DC/DC converter failure. not what we expected.

@electron sorry to hear of your troubles and such poor service and treatment by the stealer. i bought a mut-clone scanner tool, the Carsoft i909, which will read the DTCs. It won't let you re-do VINs for ECU changeout, but is very handy to get the trouble codes and data. Is that black potting compou...
