Re: iMiEV as workhorse

I had approached both local dealers about getting their i-MiEV marketing displays when Mitsubishi allowed, and both came through with the green jellybeans! Both of them had failed 12V power supplies for the led lights, but that is a very easy replacement. And of course, the sign fits inside on our h...

Re: Remote/heat/ac while charging

Good on ya, KerryE! If you were to lose it, secondhand remotes can be reprogrammed, but tis a PITA. I consider the remote a major asset for the car, and since it stays stationed atop my dresser, it the most valuable tool to ensure that I leave each winter morning with a fully charged and heated car....

Re: 4 Years & 100k miles/160k km Review & Range Test

Oh yeah, thx for that linkage reminder. What about that 3700 mile battery, and how’s the pack capacity looking in Bluey?

100,000 miles status report

I'll glom on to Sandange's thread with my own 100,000 milepost. MR BEAN turned six digits on 3/29/2019, and I compiled all the battery data at that moment. Basic vehicle history is that it was sold a full year after production, and probably spent most of that idle time sitting at 100% SOC, with no o...

Re: Warranty on Bianco's battery after 95k miles.

Wow, congrats Clovi, but I'm disappointed to hear of such a runaround when Mitsubishi was presented with a straightforward technical problem. What sort of price on the replacement battery did they quote you for a non-warranty replacement? I'm hoping that the month wait is due to ocean freight and no...

FWIW, here's someone on eBay parting out what he claims is a low mileage I-MiEV pack... https://www.ebay.com/sch/davdelflor/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from= I can't tell for sure visually the difference between LEV-50 and LEV-50n the mfr website is outdated. https://www.lithiumenergy.j...

Re: Battery Capacity Testing

Coulomb, thank you for your ongoing efforts. I'll throw in another data point. I'm planning to replace MR BEAN's battery with a junkyard salvage unit shortly after 100k miles, currently at 99,220 on the odometer. Current stats according to my MUT3 clone: Battery current capacity: 27.3 Ah Battery max...

Re: would anybody be interested in parts ? like the HV battery?

Whoa Bobby- we're neighbors! I'm in Graham, so I drive thru Puyallup at least twice a day!
I'm out of work right now so would be happy to help in either the rebuild or the parting out. I'm PM'ing my phone number.

Re: A New Tire For Us!

While I had the Achilles ATR Sport tires off the car during Seattle's recent "snowmageddon", I had them siped at Les Schwab tires for about $18 each (Razor cuts across the tread). Traction is definitely improved. I've been unable to break them loose by applying full throttle on cold, wet t...

Re: Troubleshooting and repair for On-board Charger (OBC), DC-DC Converter

Yes, this victim had an original 12V battery, and it's weakness was not apparent until the owner tried to drive in 'total loss mode'- overnight 12V recharging and DCFC traction battery recharging. He replaced the 12V battery before we replaced the OBC. This car had been subjected to 'hard shutdowns'...
