Re: 12 kW chademo charging

Thanks to some trading with an electrician, I am now the proud owner of a CHAdeMO handle and long cordset to complement the salvaged i-MiEV CHAdeMO inlet that I picked up a while back. It is a first generation Yazaki CHV-03 (the heavy metal handle), removed in a station upgrade to the lightweight pl...

New English i-MiEV Website and literature on Euro-spec cars

I hadn't seen the following i-MiEV dedicated website before, apparently "Model year 2017.5" Euro-spec i-MiEV stuff, including steering wheel paddles for regen (direct in the third link). It shows an updated display with an indicator for reduced regen ability (I assume during high state of ...

Re: my Miev will not charge

I don't think it is the main drive fuse itself - 280A 300V is a lot of power to not notice the smoke come out somewhere.] I agree it would be unlikely for the main drive fuse to blow from what you've described, but a quality 300 amp fuse could easily blow without anything being noticeable beyond th...

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...
