Re: Weird AC behaviour while fast charging

I've had up to 12ºC diference in cell temperature. I had some cells near 42ºC and others at 20ºC. My A/C never stopped during AC, so it could be something more specific to the newer models (since both my C-zero and Malm's imiev are 2011 model year.)

Re: Some trouble with AC on my C-zero

Humid? Quite the opposite, really. We sometimes call the southern part of our country the "desert". A couple of weeks earlier temperatures in the region went above 40ºC, reaching 50ºC in one specific location. Not that I experienced anything remotely similar to that, but it's just to give ...

Re: Some trouble with AC on my C-zero

Last weekend I made 1000km on my c-zero. 630km on Friday, using 9 quick-charges. Issues with the A/C? None. :shock: It cloudy for most of the day, so it wan't very hot. After the second quick charge battery avg temp were around 33-35ºC, and they mostly kept within that range for the whole trip at hi...

Re: Some trouble with AC on my C-zero

1. Locate the fuse box: on my right hand drive car its near the accelerator pedal footwell area, no idea on a LHD. Pull the relevant fuses (they are named), and look for a blown fuse... google if your unsure what a blown fuse looks like. You only need to check the fuses if you think an item is brok...

Re: Some trouble with AC on my C-zero

so I just fixed the AC unit as it was graunching becasue it had amlost come completely free from the mounting parts and was making a pretty bad racket. Now that's fixed it's all fine. There are several parts to check: 1. The pollen filter as suggested by Don. 1a. Check all the relevant fuses. 2. Ja...

Re: Some trouble with AC on my C-zero

Cabin air filter need cleaning/replacing? Don That's worth a shot. I don't know if it was ever replaced before I had it and I still haven't changed it/cleaned it. Where are you located and what year model do you have? This could be the early signs of a problem developing or as simple as an intermit...

Some trouble with AC on my C-zero

Last weeked I went on a 350km trip with my c-zero, so I had to stop for some fast-charging on the way. While the AC was working nicely during the trip, during the quick charge it began to blow less cool air. Once I began driving it again I turned the AC on and barelt any cool air came out. I decided...

Re: Passive cooling ?

So, obviously leaving the key on all night every night and supplementing the 12 volt system with a battery charger is not a long term solution but the data from doing it leads to one. I did that all night ventilation on my wife’s car and it had an uncharacteristically long charge cycle needing 12 b...

Re: Passive cooling ?

That's interesting, On my car it is a very good seal. No discernible airflow out of the floor vents when in Battery vent mode. It's hitting 105 F here today and I can keep the hottest cell under 91F if I work at it. Frankly though, the temperature management system is less than stellar. If you let ...
