Re: Always on lighter/12v port - Charging battery banks

Hi all, I put this project aside for a while and didn't know what to do with it. I am afraid to tap into wires, especially the large red one - I don't have any wire taps that size and even if I did, I am afraid of damaging it by using slightly the wrong size or something. I also looked into the 30Am...

Re: Always on lighter/12v port - Charging battery banks

OK sounds good. It's 10 gauge wire. Thanks for the additional info about the rear install and dealer. I'm still leaning to the front connection....I guess at 20A since your reasoning makes sense, but wouldn't the 15A breaker trip from a load on that rear end before the wire melts? And if I have 10 g...

Re: Always on lighter/12v port - Charging battery banks

Thank you Aerowhatt and Kiev, great ideas. The pictures are now numbered in the previous post. I like the idea of tapping in at the rear because it is closer, but I want to do a permanent install and not have to remove anything for dealer visits. I also don't want mechanics later blaming something o...

Re: Always on lighter/12v port - Charging battery banks

I made some progress on this project. I did the hard part - wiring and cutting. Now I need to decide where to connect the wires. Ideas please! Do I use an open fuse (never did that before) or do I use an inline fuse on the red side? I want this to always have power, key on or off. Thanks! Some pics...

Two i-Mievs - 2016 and 2017

I just saw these on Carfax and thought I'd post here for anyone looking. Not that old and decent mileage and price. Good reports on Carfax. One even had an emissions test in NY! Doesn't say if it passed. https://www.carfax.com/vehicle/JA3215H49HU000205 https://www.carfax.com/vehicle/JA3215H43GU000215

A/C while plugged in not cold

Hi,

If I am plugged in (J1772), turn the key all the way, turn on A/C...it blows but is not cold.

When I unplug and start the car the A/C is cold.

Is this normal?

Thanks

Re: Dash warning beepers

Kiev, Thanks for the super info! I did all the mods including the knee breakers. I had seen them before and thought the same thing! glad to remove them since I love my knees. Also the car is so much faster now :) Considering the rear gate beeper next, but I do like seeing the dash warning light for ...
