Re: my Miev will not charge

Obviously the car won't go to READY with the service plug disconnected. Coulomb wanted you to remove the MCU fuse and see if the car would start with the OBC/DC converter power connection to the pack removed, i.e. the temporary fuse removed. As a safety concern, there will be HV on the big capacitor...

Re: my Miev will not charge

Just a note, from what I've seen of the service manual, there is no mention of the fuse - the troubleshooting flow chart suggests replacement of the EV-ECU and charger/DC-DC after checking the wiring harnesses and relays. It seems like quite an oversight in the troubleshooting process. i think all ...

Re: my Miev will not charge

In Skylogger's first repair there was also a displaced resistor on the bottom board that prevented operation of the OBC. Maybe he could help you look if yall are nearby in WA. (is anything nearby in WA?) The trouble codes might provide a clue if you have a way to extract those, e.g. MUT readout by d...

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

.... On this one we can see the fused resistor. I did not see last time. We also see that the rubbery potting has boiled. Questions: 1) should I change the capacitor as a precaution? I have not found a supplier in Europe for the Okaya capacitor, do you think that one is correct? https://content.kem...

snubber cap options

The blue 1000pF snubber caps are rated 2kV and are ~9.3mm diameter. i have a bag full of some 3kV @ 12.0mm, and 6kV @ 17.3mm, that would provide a bit of HV margin--will make these available in a repair kit if you can't find a local source.

Reduced Replacement Cost?

i heard of a fellow (not on the forum) who was getting a replacement OBC from a dealer at a greatly reduced cost, ~$500. Maybe the recent numerous failures of the OBC has risen up to Mits to where they are realizing a problem and dropping the price as a goodwill gesture? It may be worth asking your ...
