Re: Brake light on whilst driving - vacuum pump

Perhaps you should check that low brake fluid is not causing ineffective braking and a brake warning light?

Re: FYI brake vacuum pump recall for early 2020

Vacuum pump replacement at local dealer service department can be performed in about 45 minutes once appropriate part is in stock. Installation includes new rubber grommets /eyelets which very effectively isolate the three point bracket beneath the pump from the car body. https://i.ibb.co/sQRNBkL/Br...

FYI brake vacuum pump recall for early 2020

Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. is recalling an estimated 2,106 2012-2017 i-MiEV vehicles because water may penetrate the brake assist vacuum pump. This scenario can cause corrosion and result in failure of the brake vacuum pump. If the brake vacuum pump malfunctions, the driver will experienc...

Re: iMiEV as workhorse

Thanks for sharing your enthusiasm for iMiEV firewood scavenging! :D I would never attempt to operate a 15 ampere electric saw that draws 1,700 watts continuously from an inverter attached to a car battery! I have melted home wiring and tripped 20 amp circuit breakers repeatedly when working with su...

Re: iMiEV as workhorse

Wow, those photos qualify you as a bonafide lumberjack! :D Does the electric cord peeking out from under the wood in the second photo mean that you bucked the logs using an electric saw? :?: Would love to see a photo of how the rear suspension/wheels/tires were riding under that extreme load. :o

Re: 12V battery BCI Size?

Big shout out :D to members of this forum for emphasizing the need to monitor the health of aging auxiliary batteries. Used a conductance tester to determine that our factory installed (December 2011) Yuasa battery was degraded by use, time, and temperature fluctuation. The vehicle never exhibited a...

Re: i-Miev armrest

I wrapped the base of the unmodified armrest with a single layer of duct tape and wedged it into the cupholder; in our experience following this simple installation procedure the armrest will bear elbow weight without shifting position. :D

Re: New I-MiEV's --- Maybe, maybe not

JoeS, Couldn't agree more with your assessment of the outstanding value represented by a new i-MiEV in today's marketplace. A dealer accepted our NADA clean retail price offer of $11, 995 for a new 2012 SE model last year resulting in a $5 net transaction profit to us after the $7,500 federal credit...
