We are after a DC-DC converter, from a salvage i-miev, we are in Sydney Australia. does not matter if it has failed or is VIN locked.

Re: Car not charging,..DC/DC converter failure. not what we expected.

Kiev: Does your car have DC quick charge, level 3 charge port? Yes, it does have DC quick charge, and we are considering borrowing a CTEC CHAdeMO charger from someone here in Sydney, and seeing if we can put charge in that way. We will however still need to charge the 12V battery separately since i...

Re: Car not charging,..DC/DC converter failure. not what we expected.

Thanks Kiev for all the useful information. It is interesting the different components on your DC/DC Converter compared to ours. We are at this point considering sourcing a DC/DC Converter from somewhere, be that Japan (if compatible) or the UK. However as I suspected, it appears the Japanese delive...

Re: Car not charging,..DC/DC converter failure. not what we expected.

I'm guessing that this part of the circuit is mains related, with a 250 V relay nearby. I am thinking the same thing. The iMiEV does not have a proper EVSE so to speak, it is pretty much a cable that goes from the 240V socket to the DC/DC Converter. Now the iMiEV charge cable lacking the EVSE would...

Re: Car not charging,..DC/DC converter failure. not what we expected.

Ok, an update. I think board with the blown resistor has been bonded to the water cooling layer of the DC/DC Converter, it does not appear to want to budge, and I do not want to break it. Possibly it could be attached from underneath, but it does not appear so. We drained the coolant, and then remov...

Car not charging,..DC/DC converter failure. not what we expected.

Ok, well there's your problem. Anyway, strap in, this is going to be long. So to begin with about a month and a half ago we went to go to the shops in our iMiEV and as we turned out of our street, we noted that the car had not charged fully, and that we had the red 12v battery warning light as well ...

Re: Future battery replacement

Following this thread as I am very interested in upgrading our iMiev with a larger battery. For the time being however, we are considering making a Tesla battery pack range extender.

It will be interesting to see how those Samsung SDI cells go....

Re: imiev at a Russian boat show.

sorry to bring up and old thread. but this vide of the chrome vinyl wrap has given me an idea for a vinyl wrap colour scheme, Gold 1/3, silver vertical stripe, and matt black rear 3rd of the car.. aka, copper top battery colours.
