Re: Battery Replacement - Lessons Learned

Congrats on a good experience, BarryP and Docjr. That $6k quote on a replacement battery is the lowest price I've heard yet, and is certainly within the realm of practicality.

Re: Is my battery dying ?

Yes, sorry to hear of all the rust and broken bolts. Minimal salting here in the Pac NW for salmon recovery, so minimal rust down below. The threaded rods area really just needed for safety and alignment purposes. I swapped my pack by jacking each end of the pack down/up 5 cm at a time and then fing...

A new recall on the braking system

From Japanese press on Nov 7th, still nothing appearing on the Mitsubishimotors.com website or any other USA recall tracker... That plus the number of affected vehicles (19,799) implies to me that it is a JDM-only recall at this point. I'm curious how long it takes for this wave to cross the Pacific...

Re: On-Board Charger (OBC) Warranty Extended!

After only 40 days at my dealer, MR BEAN is finally back on the road with the new charger design. Serial #38 on that charger may indicate the overall pace of these repairs... :roll: During that nearly 6 week interval, we kept two different loaner cars hostage. First was a brand new Outlander PHEV th...

Re: MCU 20A 450VDC fuse investigation

Both of the charger replacements I’ve done had both failed capacitors and fuse. The 40k failure had been charged primarily at L1, and the 80 kilomile failure was almost exclusively charged on L2 and CHAdeMO. Both cars did have L1 charging interrupted by yanking the power plug a few times.

Re: Anyone install the Navigation system / backup camera?

I picked up a double-DIN Navotainment system from an SE Premium 2012 as a spare, but my mother is interested in using it in her 2012 ES base model. Has anyone performed this transplant? I’m hoping it’ll work without the backup camera, rear door speakers, etc, as she’s mainly interested in the large ...

Re: Cost to replace an i-miev battery?

yep, ridiculous that Mitsu hasn't budged on the price of replacement batteries during a period in which the global cost of EV packs has fallen from around $500/kWh (2010-2012) to approx. $140/kWh nowadays. This is getting serious as our 2012 batteries fall off warranty and begin to finally show grea...

Re: Help Identify Connector, 12V Output of DC/DC Converter

Especially since that is a single wire going thru a gland nut, It would not be a sin to do a butt splice in place of that connector and just unbolt the wire inside the box and pass it out through the gland nut if you ever need to remove the charger again. That connector is there mainly just to save ...
