Is my battery dying?

We have a 2012 i-Miev with about 36,000 miles / 58,000km on it. i got it about 1.5 years ago. My wife drives about 50 miles a day with it which used to bring her home with 3-4 bars of power (10-15 miles of charge left). The range seems to have dropped (and I live in Las Vegas, NV area so its a mild ...

Re: A New Tire For Us!

Another tire for us! We're having our driveway poured with concrete and Carolyn brushed up against one of the form boards and poked a little hole in the sidewall of a rear tire. The Dunlop Ensaves are $148 each from Tire Rack and to be truthful, I've never been in love with Dunlop tires anyway, so ...

Re: 12 Volt battery is failing, I'm looking for replacement

The original 12V battery in my 2012 MiEV died. I pulled it out and it was really light. I took the caps off it and it was practically dry inside. I added about 1/2 gallon of distilled water to the cells and the battery worked again! until the next day when it only had 9 volts. i decided to replace i...

Re: Remote control drains batteries quickly

I ended up 3-D printing a new back cover for the remote using a file created by an iMiev owner in Finland. He emailed it to me and I then uploaded it to a 3-D printing site called shapeways.com. They printed it for like $4.40, and since it was my first order, I got free shipping. The cover fits well...

Remote control drains batteries quickly

Hello, I just purchased a 2012 iMiev SE model. The remote control came with the back cover missing. I installed some new batteries and held them in with my fingers and it does work. I put some tape across the back to hold them in. However, the 2 coin cell CR2032 batteries drained overnight. A voltag...
