Re: Help with problems with the 12 v battery

The battery said 12,5 when the car was off, but 14,3 when I turned it on, which meant that the car was charging the 12 v battery... Correct, and that would rule out the OBC (Onboard Charger ) which is otherwise called the DC-DC converter as it takes the car's main battery high voltage and converts ...

Re: turtle when braking

Marius (etrac), welcome to the forum. Sorry it's not under better circumstances. Commiserate with your issues, but have no solutions for you. A few questions, if I may - 1. Have you been able to record any error codes using the OBDII port? 2. Do the issues you describe occur at all states of charge?...

Re: U1073

Hey Boscoe, good that they found the problem! If possible, could you get them to identify EXACTLY which connector was the problem? Simply for our knowledge base. All the best in these trying times.

Re: I-Miev airbag warning light on

Thank you Jray3. I have now ordered the iCarsoft i909 scanner. Once it gets here, I will update on the outcome. I love working on cars, and overcoming obstacles. It seems to me that to be a modern-day backyard auto mechanic that one of the better skills to learn is CanBus dissection. jray3, thanks ...

i-MiEVs Reviewed on Used Market

These two general used EV reviews on YouTube include the i-MiEV - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njKmKAEdXsY Jump to about 16:00. Generally quite positive. Note that not all 2012 came with CHAdeMO, and pity they don't emphasize the huge interior volume and completely flat floor with the rear seats ...

Re: i-MiEV Nightmare and seeking advice please?

Michael - Thanks for the update. I know quite a few people who, after owning their first EV, swear they'll never go back to ICE... So, what is the highest RR (Range Remaining) number that you have achieved, as it seems you fully charge your car on Sundays? Let's see, six days and four bars left mean...

Re: Quick question please regarding parts?

A few years ago my wife borrowed 'my' i-MiEV and had a garage support column jump out and brush the right front fender, dislodging it and shearing a few plastic clips holding it in place.
