Re: Temperatures Slightly Below Freezing (30 deg F)-All Dash Lights Come On-Car won't Start

Thanks for your suggestion. Yesterday when the car wouldn't start, I turned the windshield wipers on and they seemed to be perhaps just a little bit slower than normal but not slow enough for me to suspect the 12V battery. The car hadn't been driven for about a week and during that week it was signi...

Re: one month winter iMiev non-use in Canada - what to do?

For what it's worth, I had mine sit through a Toronto winter last year. I did have two issues. 1. The 12 Volt battery went dead and the car wouldn't start. The battery was 5 years old and it became apparent when recharging it that it might benefit by adding water to each cell. A year later, after ad...

Re: how many miles after a full charge ....

Haven't you asked this question before and wasn't it comprehensively answered? http://myimiev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=4161 It depends how the car was driven during the preceding 15 miles. In the city, driving less than 40 mph, I typically get about 70 miles remaining range after a recharge...

Best way to Repair Paint Scratches On A White 2012

I have some scratches on the rear fender and rear door which has removed the white paint, but there is no body damage. Likely caused by a shopping cart. I have seen some videos on YouTube on how to repair them. Annoying, but not extremely significant, I was wondering if any have had their car with a...

Re: Couldn't shift past R - very strange

The cable running from the gear shift lever goes to the left side of the transmission housing at the rear of the car. It is likely that lubricating the lever on the left side of the transmission housing where the shift cable attaches will solve your problem. The link below shows the left side of the...

Re: new program for monitoring charge readings

I found a reference to the update at this Russian site.

Although the thread was started in 2012, the first post has likely been updated.

Re: How Well Does My Remaining Range Compare With Other Older Cars?

Rather than being a measure of battery capacity, RR simply reflects the driving conditions surrounding the previous 15 miles. ------------------------------------------------ I still defy anyone to predict what their full-charge RR number will be. Of course for varying driving conditions I agree, b...

Re: High Voltage (HV) 50A fuse

@ imiev (in reverse) If the fuse is missing or blown, then no HV would be present outside of the pack on the (+) wire of the G20 connector that runs to the A/C compressor/inverter. If the G20 is just disconnected from the inverter but the fuse was present and intact, then HV would be present outsid...
