Re: Replacement 'Ignition' Key

My problem is my car is at vacation home on an island in the Caribbean. No Mitsubishi dealer there. Bought a blank "chipped" key off Ebay and tried to get it cut. No go. Island locksmith says he can't do it. Texas locksmith says he won't do it. Mitsubishi dealer says "you have to bri...

Re: 5 Year Ownership Review

Thanks for the review, PV1. I have owned my car for just under a year and planning to calculate how much it's actually cost me. So far, so good. Although I am disappointed that Mitsubishi discontinued distributing this car in the United States, I remain hopeful that under the umbrella of the Nissan/...

Re: Shifter Problem & Warning Lights

That salt has a lot to answer for! :x I had meant to have a look at the shifter at the weekend and jack the car up so I could see underneath and give it a good clean, but never got round to it. :roll: Today, I start the car and move it and the same problem happened but it was when going from reverse...

Re: Shifter Problem & Warning Lights

Re: Friction brakes issue- 100% braking force - calipers?

Your warning light experience sounds familiar to the problem I had. Keep in mind that my Miev is a 2014 North American edition.. Did you watch the video recordings of my problem from my posting that you linked to above? How does it compare to your problem? Thanks I did. I found your original post t...

Re: Friction brakes issue- 100% braking force - calipers?

Thanks for all the info, guys. It seems to be a little bit better and less grabby after trying to use the brakes a bit. =============== EDIT====================== updated - I think the problem described below is the same one sandange was having with his shifter: http://myimiev.com/forum/viewtopic.ph...

Re: Friction brakes issue- 100% braking force - calipers?

Hi Brian, Thanks for the reply I haven't tried that yet but I will do. Brakes seemed to be a bit better today still squeaking a lot though. I tested driving it in D up to 10mph and then braking gently - seems to be a little bit less grabby - but it seems to be the right hand rear wheel caliper that ...

Re: Friction brakes issue- 100% braking force - calipers?

Hi Jray. Car has been used almost every day but it has been quite rainy of late. UPDATE: Just noticed this post from years ago on a Nissan Leaf forum - http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?p=176176#p176190 Seems that some people have experienced similar problems on the leaf and that it was soft...

Friction brakes issue- 100% braking force - calipers?

Hello All, I rarely use the friction brakes - just when coming to a stop or in an emergency but today I was parking and applied the brake pedal lightly but I got full braking force and the car stopped suddenly and unevenly. I reversed and slammed on the brake but it appeared normal. I tried it again...

Re: Charging experience in the UK

Thanks for the reply. I thought I would be able to use all type 2 chargers with my type 2 to 1 cable? I have used the 7kw ones before but there are others rated at 22kw and 43kw. I thought that these should be able to be connected and charge at 3.3kw? The charging post I was trying to use usually ha...
