Re: Motor Warning Light Comes On Shortly After Restart With Nearly Full Charge

The Motor Warning Light (little car with Exclamation point) and drop into crawl mode problem seems to be resolved but cause is still undetermined (Ghost in the Wire). I am very pleased with the extent that Burlington Mitsubishi Service Department went to to attempt to find the cause of this problem ...

Re: Motor Warning Light Comes On Shortly After Restart With Nearly Full Charge

Left it with the Dealer for one more day to test and attempt to get more diagnostic info. After letting it sit over night at a parking lot near where it quit on my way home I was able to drive it normally to my office to recharge the drive battery and drive it to the Dealer (8.0 mi) without incident...

Re: Motor Warning Light Comes On Shortly After Restart With Nearly Full Charge

Dealer could not find the cause and called Mitsubishi Tech Support that also directed toward the 12v system. They tested the battery to find that cold crank amps are above specs. They then drove it for another test drive that could not duplicate the error. My new theory is that in replacement of the...

Re: Motor Warning Light Comes On Shortly After Restart With Nearly Full Charge

This is a consistent and repeatable sequence of error that the dealer is working on today.... waiting to hear. After sitting overnight it was able to operate normally for a greater distance (5 Minutes?) but then continued to fail. I will question the Service manager on the possibility of the 12 volt...

Motor Warning Light Comes On Shortly After Restart With Nearly Full Charge

I will start with the statement that I am very pleased with this car over the past 8 months after only a little bit of behavior modification. The issue that I have at the moment is that after heading home on my regular commute (down only 3 bars at this point) I sat waiting for about an hour with the...

Re: Driver's seat adjustment on the ES model?

Has anyone modified the Driver Seat to allow it to slide back farther? I am by no means a tall person (5' 7") but my right leg could use a little bit more stretch. I like the left foot rest bump thing to brace myself and can move my left foot around when I want because the MiEV is automatic. Th...

Re: Maximum Miles Driven on One Charge

I continue to be amazed by the quality of responses here. I think I am straying from the center of this thread. I am a Newb just trying to maximize my commute efficiency. My basic takeaway on these graphs is to find routes that maintain 25 to 45 MPH are best. Now to find the flattest profile route w...

Re: Maximum Miles Driven on One Charge

Are there any Electrical Engineers and Technical Specification information to actually calculate the Motor/VFD/Drive Train MPH sweet spot or at least range?>
Thanks,

Re: Petition Ecotricity to make their charging prices fair

So, how often did you use these fast chargers when they were free? Would you be 'happy' if they reduced it to 4 pounds for 20 minutes since this car cuts off at 80%? Or would you still be upset at the 'injustice' of having to pay more than it costs you to charge at home a few times per year (when y...
