Re: Supplemental cooling for the charger.

According to wikipedia over 30,000 i-MiEVs have been sold. I think if there was a fundamental design fault with the charger that required more cooling, you would be seeing more reports of failures than we are.

I suspect you would be very unlucky to have two fail.

Re: Now MR BEAN won’t charge!

Ours was replaced 2 years ago, so a 2 year old part, not sure the 5 years age thing is generally correct. If you look back in this thread there were a couple of failures in 2 year old cars too.

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

A few of them are from Australia where it is winter so probably not high temperature. Mine went in May, which was unusually warm this year (30 C) but still not summer temps. Australian ones charge at 240v so more than the US L1. DC fast chrging doesn:'t use the onboard charger so should not be a fac...

Re: my Miev will not charge

EVbatmon showed all the cells close to the same voltage.
I feel like if it the 12v battery was that bad you would see an impact in some areas other than charging. If it works well enough to start and drive the car shouldn't it be good enough to allow it to charge?

Re: my Miev will not charge

I'll have a look next time I see the car, it has been at the dealer for 3 months and is still there. I have thought about getting it back to store undercover, but would be dependent on getting a dc charger to work to get it back again.

Re: my Miev will not charge

I also am having charger issues. 2010 Australian model with 50,000km. Showed a couple of odd symptoms - seemed to be less than fully charged a couple of times over a week or so, then wouldn't charge. Low voltage (battery shaped light) and high voltage (!) warning lights on dash. Car still drives fin...

I'd be happy to contribute data if I could get it to work on my car.

Parking at an Orienteering event in Western Australia, and yes, I did try to get back in the wrong one afterwards.
