Re: my Miev will not charge

They said they can give me some more detail next week. Not sure if it will answer that question though. Would be good to know exactly what the wiring issue was so others with problems can check it.

Re: my Miev will not charge

We may be nearing a resolution for ours. Paceway Mitsubishi say they have narrowed down the issue to a wiring concern, have performed a dummy fix and seems to be all good, but still another few weeks wait for the proper replacement parts.

Re: my Miev will not charge

They haven't been all that communicative about the technical side. I don't even know if it is still not just charging or doesn't drive at all now. Will try to find out more.

Re: my Miev will not charge

Swapping the EV-ECU did not fix the problem. Not sure what to do next.

Re: my Miev will not charge

Just got a response from Paceway that they can try it, "BUT can’t take any responsibility if it crashes or something as it is not a new unit."

I will get in touch about picking it up.

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

I'll give you a call. I did ask about keeping the old charger and they said I couldn't but I might try again once it is fixed.

Re: my Miev will not charge

Well my wife has vowed not to get an EV again until they are commonplace. Hopefully that is not too far away. Part of our delay was due to the part number of the charger being changed, which supports the idea that maybe the new charger is different. Maybe it does need a new ev-ecu to go with it. The...

Re: my Miev will not charge

Yes, I drove it in there 5 months ago with no problem, but can't confirm if it still drives.
I think someone else had a dealer replace an ECU first when they had a dead charger and it didn't help, so I'm a bit suspicious this is not actually the problem, but they should know better than me.

Re: my Miev will not charge

Paceway (Mitsubishi dealer) have now done all their diagnostics and say it points to a problem with the EV-ECU which they want to replace as the next step. They are currently working out whether they want me to pay for that or not. I'm a bit worried that it is not actually the problem, and will resu...

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

That's interesting. I had to replace the plug on our stock charging cord (2010 one with no EVSE) shortly before the charger failed as it was melting and falling apart. I wonder if issues with the charger might have contributed to that, or issues with the plug might have contributed to the charger is...
