Re: My Brother Bought an I-Miev!

sounds like the same options I got my 2012 ES last March. Mine had 1700 miles on it. Now it has nearly 13k. No issues - NONE. Quick charger is a life saver if you are going out of town, or trying to do to many miles in our damp/colder NW winters (keeping the windows defogged just seems to eat my ba...

Re: My Car is Only Charging Up to 12 Bars

Ed5000, any updates on your situation? I take it that the dealer has the car now? Hi PV1, The dealer has had the car since Monday morning. At first they were not sure if its the inverter or battery pack but now they said they're 90% sure it's the battery pack. They also said that the "battery ...

I get the feeling the scratches were not too bad. I know he has been driving all over in it including in the snow last week where he said it drove just fine.

Re: LED Lighting

I found a good led replacement lamp for the W5W lamps used in exterior side markers and license plate lights. Its smaller (fits better), uses only 3 smd's that point in different directions (lights evenly) uses less power while still being brighter than the original lamp. https://www.amazon.com/gp/p...

Re: My Car is Only Charging Up to 12 Bars

For my dealer, to diagnose, test, and replace the battery, took 3 weeks. Hmm, the voltage difference was reduced after balance charging. Can you do another balance charge and post the results? Hmm, 3 weeks could be an eternity for me. :lol: :? In the meantime I'll try for a balance charge tomorrow....

I'm just wondering what the Mitsu dealer will do. Do they have some battery recovery routine they can try? I'm also wondering how long they'll need to keep the car.

JoeS wrote:ed5000, so what happened after you fully fully balance-charged?

This morning I found the car with 11 bars again and 52 miles of range remaining. Still a very functional car. ;)

The #75 cell however was at 3.965 volts while the rest were at 4.105 volts.

Re: My Car is Only Charging Up to 12 Bars

The car drove just fine today. Arrived home with 15 miles remaining and with 3 bars. Maybe I'm getting better at eco mode. :D Then I took the car out for an errand and to get down to 2 bars for balance charging later on. Then I connected to CaniOn and this time cell #75 (the low cell) is 3.745 volts...

That's pretty recent. Did it get more than 5 hours of charging before you drove it again?


I'm pretty sure I used the time delay. It's been a habit for me to do this.
