Re: Canion

The OBDLink LX is the only bluetooth device that has ever been paired to the tablet, and it has not been paired to any other devices. I haven't tried turning off Wifi however. I'm pretty sure the issue is with the adaptor firmware itself - if I only plug the adaptor into the car just before I'm abou...

Re: CHAdeMO flap release not working

Are you sure the bowden cable sleeve hasn't come out of the bracket at the lever end ? That seems to be a very common problem with these, at least on the RHD models. Mine didn't work when I first picked it up (second hand) and that's all it was, and a lot of people have had the same problem. I belie...

Re: Battery Balancing L1 vs L2

Here in the UK there is no such thing as Level 1 charging since all our supplies are 240v, (Level 2) and yes, balancing is performed. The car always top balances to 4.1 volts if left to charge on Level 1/2 until the charge light goes out, but also sometimes seems to bottom balance if you start charg...

Re: Is my battery dying ?

DBMandrake, thank you for posting those images and analyses, and thanks for stress-testing your battery in the interest of science. My impression is that your battery is just fine and does not exhibit the dramatic individual cell failure which some of us have experienced (and which was cause for ba...

Re: Canion

I've posted in this thread over in the scantool forum, should be interesting! :twisted: https://www.scantool.net/forum/index.php?topic=14605.msg52688#msg52688 The post I'm replying to (responding to someone else with the same problem) seems to be trying to say that the automatic reconnection that Ca...

Re: Is my battery dying ?

I dont disagree with the data, but seems unlikely that two cells would weaken at the same time... though I do understand your concerns. I would want to do the cell balancing procedure and repeat this test a couple more times and keep an eye on those two cells. What "cell balancing procedure&qu...

I read that thread but I'm not sure what part of it you're drawing my attention to or how it relates to my problem ?

Re: Canion

I've had a chance to drive home and do some testing with the latest 4.3.0 firmware on the OBDLink LX but unfortunately it doesn't solve the problems and in fact seems to introduce one new problem! :( The new problem is that with the original firmware (version unknown as the OBDLink app reported it a...

Re: Is my battery dying ?

From what little data we can find on the cells, 4.2 V is 100% and they consider drained to 0% at 2.75 V when making cell meaurements at Yuasa. That's what I've thought for a long time as well but I happened on this technical article from Yuasa just today that seems to imply that the 50Ah capacity i...

Re: Canion

At long last I was able to start using Canion yesterday using an OBDLink LX. Many thanks to Martin and Xavier for such a great program. :D I have a few questions about the use of the app that maybe someone can answer, as well as some bluetooth connection issues. I'm running the app on an Amazon Fire...
