Re: Battery Capacity Testing

CZeroOwner, thank you for the posts. I have an old Android tablet which I've been using with CaniOn and OBDLink MX bluetooth adapter, but with that combination I couldn't get OBDZero to link up. I haven't tried my old STN1170 adapter. Which specific ELM adapters do you suggest?

Re: Drove 9 miles & it drained 1/2 my charge

Most of us pre-heat the car (using the Remote) while it is plugged in, thus not using the battery to warm up the car from cold, and then use the driver's seat heater which uses very little energy. What is your anticipated daily driving need in terms of distance and type of driving and what is the ye...

Re: 12v Battery - All You Ever Wanted To Know

NOCO UPDATE I installed the NOCO 7.8Ah LiFePO4 battery on December 6. The longest I went without driving the car has been three days, and have never attached my float charger (Meanwell power supply set to 13.4vdc). Removed my OBDLink MX since it consumes 60ma. I'll be plugging it back in during lon...

Re: New Owner: Warning lights and other issues

As far as a MUT Scan Tool, it's my understanding that only Mitsubishi dealers have these. and the nearest dealer is 25 miles away. Besides, I don't trust dealerships for repairs!!!.. Been ripped off one too many times !!! Only 25 miles away? You're lucky! Many on this forum have dealerships way out...

Re: New Owner: Warning lights and other issues

Hi Victor (porciniman), and welcome to the forum, and it was nice exchanging PM/emails with you to get you started. That 2016 i-MiEV with so few miles was certainly an enticing purchase. You covered multiple issues, so let's tackle each one with my own opinions - 1. Excellent first step was to repla...

Re: Soon-to-be i-Miev owner needs some advice

MikeMcA, first off, since you only have a two-prong (ungrounded) 120vac outlet, by all means have the NEMA 14-50 outlet installed in your garage. Think long and hard as to whether you will be going in forward or backing into the garage, and then locate the outlet in the vicinity of the right rear of...

Re: Bad cell - tips on dealing with Mitsu?

I also wish you luck, as the friend I sold my original i-MiEV to had an even more drastic situation at a little under 90K miles, but the car did show all 16 bars when charged and would go into turtle at even a slight accelerator pedal depression (which I thought was a serious safety issue). After fi...
