Re: Peugeot ION multiple problems

Gera4ko, sorry to hear of the ongoing trouble. Your symptoms sound like when my charger failed. Did you replace the 20 amp fuse that is inside the inverter assembly? That fuse is both the high voltage input to the DC-DC converter and the output fuse for the main battery charger! Lots of details in t...

Re: Regen vs Neutral and speed for max range

I regen to limit speed gain, and this is more efficient than rolling out the speed on the level. The i-MiEV is too light and has too much drag to really take advantage of this. Remember, aero drag increases exponentially in relation to speed. Absolutely correct-, PV1. From my mountain highway EV dr...

My replacement passenger airbag has the same surface texture, but supposedly was only available in black, so it doesn't match the brown SE dashboard

Re: iMiev wiper blades size

I can report that a 28" main wiper actually works fine with the stock 20" right-side wiper in place. If an arm was bent or off a notch, they'd probably collide, but this setup provides the greatest swept area. I'll see how close they come under a snowy load, etc.. The bottom end of the rig...

Re: long term review edmunds

Edmunds purges the older reviews of a model from time to time, so mine aged out, but without solicitation from (or mention to) Yours Truly, I see that my dad posted a review.

Salvaged vehicle thread

I'll suggest we consolidate auction listings, and salvage stories on this thread. Here's a cool service that archives auto auction data. It has 27 archived auctions of salvaged i-MiEVs in the US, but I haven't been able to see the pricing histories yet, that link is coming up with a 504 error, Gatew...

Re: Let the Hacking Begin

I just found this university project that is building a microbus on the chassis of an i-MiEV. Don't think it's been posted yet.

Re: Trouble finding new rear tires in British Columbia

If you want the best combination of traction and range, I think there's no substitute for the EnaSave. However, I just picked up the SunFull SF-688 for only $36 USD from Pep Boys, 2018 manufacture. Haven't mounted them yet, but they claim both LRR and wet traction. http://myimiev.com/forum/viewtopic...

Re: Is my battery dying ?

I don't have a currently functional CanIon setup. That experience with Android devices convinced me to stick with the iPhone.... :geek: Pack capacity is 33.2 Ah and falling. I'll give CanIon another try for the pretty graphs, but scrolling through with the MUT3 previously showed a well balanced pack...
