Yes, the alarm continued after I disconnected the black (negative) cable. Very loudly!

Too late now - I have to leave in a few hours and I don't have the to go to where the car is being stored.

Re: New member needs help please!

I got a 2012 leather seat iMiEV in April 2016 with about 10k on the clock and I love it. Very comfortable seats and much nicer than the cloth ones. Worth paying the extra for the leather, IMO. 60 miles is further than I have ever attempted to go. Winter range (slow London driving) is more like 45 mi...
