Re: Electric motor unit warning light (stopped charging mid-charge)

Update: I had the car towed to the dealer. They diagnosed the error and said that as a start the OBC needs to be replaced and that "luckily" there is a warranty extension on that part so there will be no charge. Now we wait for the part to come. Excellent news! Please do follow-up and let...

Re: Electric motor unit warning light (stopped charging mid-charge)

Does this Motomaster 151R look like it will work as a replacement ( https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/motomaster-group-size-151r-battery-360-cca-0101510p.html ) ? Its L-W-H dimensions are 184 x 125 x 222 mm, versus 188 x 125 x 225 for the original--so close that it might work without a shim, or ma...

Re: Cost to replace an i-miev battery?

Enginerd, thank you for this. At today's rate of 1.38USD = 1GBP, that means £12,987.59 = US$17,922.87. :o :cry: :evil: :twisted: If I'm ever close to a Mitsu dealership I might just stop in and ask the same question. Contrasting the head-start that Mitsubishi had over every other manufacturer in ent...

Re: Used 2012 I-miev remote climate control

The Remote allows you to preheat the entire i-MiEV heating system, and the defroster setting really heats up the entire car nicely in addition to clearing the windows. Don't forget to turn on the seat heater switch beforehand, as that also turns on when using the Remote and provides a nice warm welc...

Re: Level One Charger Won't Charge

Ohiofriedcharger , glad to hear the EVSE and the car talk Level 1 again. Don't forget that Mitsubishi says you should be using a GFCI-protected outlet which ensures proper grounding, but a normal outlet works fine as long as it's correctly wired. ... Can I edit my profile to change my screen name? ...

Re: Accessorizing on the cheap!

Rick, thank you for your toy update. :-) I hadn't heard of silicone license plate frames (I use velcro to silence the rattle) but they sound like a good idea. Be sure to keep the box that the side mouldings came in because it's a template for properly positioning the moulding - yes, do it in warmer ...

Re: Level One Charger Won't Charge

Ohiofriedcharger , before completely giving up on your Mitsu EVSE (which I believe is different than our 2012 EVSEs as it has a 8A/12A selector switch), could you try simply testing your three-prong outlets to ensure they are properly wired with Neutral and Ground in the right place? Something like...

Re: Let the Hacking Begin

fifurnio, welcome to the forum. I wasn't aware of the Mitsu i-MiEV drivetrain being used in anything other than the Peugeot iOn and Citroen C-Zero. Interesting. Congratulations on paralleling two different packs! We've often talked about it, but you've actually done it! Do you have any current monit...

Re: New Replacement Traction Battery - Changes in Construction

Do we know for sure that the replacement batteries Mitsu is installing under warranty are actually 'new'?? Do we know for sure that they contain the newer LEV50N cells?? Has anybody (so far) actually opened one up to see what's inside? The battery warranty is for 10 years - If you get 9 years out o...

Re: Battery Replacement Under Warranty, New Warranty Time

centex, congratulations! This new battery most probably contains the "new, improved" LEV50N cells - you're easily good for another ten years! BTW, it's always fun to know where in the world someone is located, as we occasionally find other i-MiEV owners close to us. You might consider upda...
