Re: Using I Miev for backup power unit

I have it all rigged up and tested (with lights only ... and for some reason they come on and off, something to do with a load sensing feature on the inverter and the fact that most of our lights are LED) .. I have not tested it under load and have not really had a reason to. My one concern is the w...

Re: Replacement 'Ignition' Key

My problem is my car is at vacation home on an island in the Caribbean. No Mitsubishi dealer there. Bought a blank "chipped" key off Ebay and tried to get it cut. No go. Island locksmith says he can't do it. Texas locksmith says he won't do it. Mitsubishi dealer says "you have to brin...

Re: Check engine light on

It just scrolls through the list of codes. I am trying to ascertain what they mean and then to reset them. I drove the car 50 miles and pulled the codes again with the same result

Re: Check engine light on

The car runs fine. I used an "Oxgord" scan tool I bought off eBay. It seemed to function as it should reading the instructions. Only the reset codes came back with a "fail" message and the check engine light is still on.

Re: Check engine light on

Bought a scanner and pulled codes: u2821 c2584 p0000. Tried to erase got an "erase fail"

My table does not list these codes. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Using I Miev for backup power unit

Well we are going to find out what this big battery/little battery setup can do. I may put a second lead acid battery in parallel with the car's 12v battery to provide for some surge demand but in the final analysis the average draw has to be under 80A at 12V otherwise the dc to dc transformer won't...

Re: Check engine light on

I am not familiar with that device/software but it sounds like something I should have as there is no dealer in the Abacos.

Re: Check engine light on

Batty went flat because vehicle stood for 3 months at vacation home. Next time I will disconnect or leave on trickle charge. Is there no way to reset?

Check engine light on

12v battery went dead. Jumped it and left key in ready for 30 mins. Then completed charging with ext charger. That all went fine. Plugged main charger in and in a mental slip turned key to on then to ready. Check engine light (stop car and call dealer light came on). Switched key off and completed c...

Re: Using I Miev for backup power unit

My inverter will support 3000W continuous, 9000W for 20 seconds. It is also a solar controller so I could do the solar trickle thing (which would also recharge the IMieV 12v battery if the ignition was off) but realistically that only makes sense if you are using solar power all the time. Using the ...
