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

Thx Kenny, I’ll add to #8 that both my DCDC and charger failed at the same time, fixed by replacing with a collision salvage unit. Simply opening and reconnecting a wiring connector will renew the contact surface and break up corrosion, but a cleaning spray like DeOx-it could only help. It appears t...

Re: Now MR BEAN won’t charge!

Thanks Kenny, I was hoping you’d pipe up. Will start looking for the right box. I’m happy to report “Mission Accomplished” on the charger/DCDC swap. With the correct fuse not arriving till next week (only one in the USA dealer inventory system), I routed that juice through a spare solar combiner box...

Re: Now MR BEAN won’t charge!

Here's the spec sheet for our 20A fuse under the inverter inspection cover. Still haven't found an online vendor.

Re: Uhaul attacks my imiev

Ouch, what a bad luck acciDent! I'd encourage you to do the buyback if they total it. That's the flipside of our low valuations, quick to total out, and super-cheap to buy back. I'd put the old wheels/tires back on just in case, but negotiate down to $2500 or less. The last fixable-looking auction c...

Re: Now MR BEAN won’t charge!

Indeed Don- doing our own TPMS handshake with a second set of wheels would be a great DIY tool. My dad had the same issue I originally did at a Discount Tire store, with the service manager claiming success on the data link, "just drive around a while for the light to go away"...... Yester...

Re: Now MR BEAN won’t charge!

Ok, thanks to the wealth of knowledge on this forum, I found the blown fuse in the inverter, ....which feeds the DC-DC? Now to find a couple of PEC 20A DC450V, expecting to blow another and show some internal fault... Thank you KiEV http://myimiev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=3897&p=35473&...

Re: Now MR BEAN won’t charge!

Don, I will gladly take your barbs and freely admit when I’m wrong, and I wouldn’t have expected anything less when making such a post. However I’ve tested my house battery once again and found it to be good, but I knew that if I resort to the dealer they will want to replace it as well, so I went a...

Re: EV Roadmap

I also hooked up with Dave Patterson, the now former Mitsubishi engineer who was responsible for bringing the i-MiEV to the USA! He’s about to sell one of his two I-MiEV, but I’ve got dibs in case MR BEAN gets an expensive diagnosis!

EV Roadmap

Portland Oregon is home to the EV ROADMAP conference, currently in its 11th running! I dare say it is the best annual EV conference in the USA, attracting international attention, with a large Dutch contingent this year, and a boatload of Norwegians last time. https://evroadmapconference.com/ The go...

Now MR BEAN won’t charge!

So last week the final payment on my 5 yr, 0% financing clears the bank and I’m waiting for the title to arrive free and clear while gorging on information here in Portland at the 11th annual EV Roadmap conference, and the wife sends this.. :o https://www.dropbox.com/s/1o2ndu8m67n2bxf/IMG_2383.JPG P...
