Re: TPMS on i-MiEVs

We used to have an annual 'inspection' here in Mississippi - It cost just $5 and if your lights, turn signals, wipers and horn worked, you passed. Took all of 5 minutes and checked nothing of importance . . . . tires, brakes, shocks, seatbelts, airbag lights, etc. We've never had any smog checks . ...

Re: TPMS on i-MiEVs

Like most other enthusiasts, I don't think *I* need it, but a walk through a WalMart parking lot looking at tires will make you think it's probably an excellent idea for most people - There are a LOT of seriously underinflated tires running around on cars out there and most folks aren't aware that ...

Re: TPMS on i-MiEVs

So glad the UK doesn't mandate TPMS... what a useless technology. So glad the IMIEV UKDM doesnt have it fitted.

Both my parents-in laws had BMWs, both constantly giving trouble with TPMS... hopeless.

Re: Detaching the 12 volt

I stuck the old battery from my wifes Insight in the IMIEV, though the Insight uses small terminals, and the I uses the larger ones, so I had to get adapters... it was fiddly though, and the positive terminal connector is a massive clumsy thing in an area with virtually no space - so it was a pain I...

Re: CHADEMO charge failure

99.9% likely the CHAdeMO EVSE. Ive had a couple of mis-charges before due to the EVSE, the IMIEV is not the issue I predict. Most of the time the EVSE faults are a failure to initialise. Once they initialise, its normally OK, unless something else is going on with it. If there is a problem with the ...

Re: Wanted: Single LEV50 cell, or full 8/4 cell module

I think you are right about a 5y battery warranty in the UK. However, since you are essentially a running advert for Mitsubishi Electric, and the fact that Mitsubishi could, if they wanted, honor a battery failure past the warranty period if they wanted, perhaps it would be good to write them a lett...

Re: What Other EV's Have You Driven?

Other than my IMIEV, I've driven my parents IMIEV... does that count? Both are registered in 2012, but I think my parents one is the previous model year, as there are several differences, not only to spec and trim parts, but the car drives slightly differently (mine feels smoother but marginally slo...

yes behind the plastic panel in front of your knees--with razor sharp edges too. See previous discussion here: http://myimiev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=2680&p=22556#p22556 Those are indeed absent on the RHD model... there is one right-angled bracket holding the dash which is significan...
