Re: Got the RBS and car with exclamation mark through it errors.

I have found a "workaround" until I get this looked at by the dealer. If I drive in "B" the error never appears. Wouldn't that mean it has to do with the gear shifter? Ajnyhow, that makes it possible to get he car to the dealer without having to have it towed.

Re: Got the RBS and car with exclamation mark through it errors.

Got the replacement 12v battery. Didn't fit perfectly so had to add some pieces of wood below the battery to be able to fasten the harness again. But the RBS error and turtle is back. So i guess i have to get it to the dealer unless someone has a brilliant idea.

Re: Got the RBS and car with exclamation mark through it errors.

It's a regular 12V battery available at any parts store or wallmert, type 151, same size used in mazda miata. Hot weather may aggravate a weak battery situation. You may be able to chargge it up with a regular 12V battery chargger in order to drive to get a new one. The OEM has fill ports to check ...

Re: Got the RBS and car with exclamation mark through it errors.

Replace your old worn out and weak 12V Aux battery before you do some real damage, such as having it fail during charging and taking out the On-Board Chargger, a very expen$ive item. It may seem to be okay, but they do wear out and losing the 12V is catastrophic in an EV. A gasoline car doesn't mat...

Re: Got the RBS and car with exclamation mark through it errors.

That is EXACTLY the problems I am seeing! I forgot to mention that the D, E bars are blinking also. I have tested this some more and it happens after I have driven for 5 to 10 minutes. I then stop, turn the car off and on again and can drive another 5 - 10 minutes. I have been looking for the batter...

Got the RBS and car with exclamation mark through it errors.

Hi, Today while driving my 2015 iMiEV suddenly shows a RBS error and a car with an exclamation mark through it. The turtle also came on and the car was slow. I stopped and turned it off and on again and the car ran normally without any errors. Then the errors came back. Same thing, stopped and start...

Skylar - Third New England winter storm for our iMiev

Hi, Our iMiev loves snow, ice, wind and cold. Becuase that's what we've had since we got it around Christmas and it's been doing great! Can't wait to see how "The Kitten Kar" (that's why my daughter calls it) will do in normal conditions. Having been that brave and positive during three st...

Re: Should we get a 2014?

Last night we took it to the one bar charge level by going to a restaurant quite far away. No range angst since we know how far we can go and had the running out of power experience on our first night with the car taking it home from the dealer (described elsewhere in the forums). That experience ta...

Re: Should we get a 2014?

The iMiev is working out great. When it gets really cold it loses some range and it doesn't get warm as fast as gas cars do. Before we got it we had defined pretty narrowly what we will use it for and what the limitations would be. But since it is a "around town" car for us we haven't foun...

What is the sound I hear right after plugging in?

Hi,

Every time I plug in to charge the car there's a sound that reminds me of some kind of fan going for a few seconds. Seems to come from under the car. Then it stops. Can someone tell me what that sound it?
