Re: Video: Summer maintenance (hah) and racing a train across the country.

I thought I saw 41degC in the video, but perhaps I'm mistaken. For these types of trips I would definitely make the mod to divert air into the battery. I'm surprised that the fan inside the battery pack doesn't have a lower turn-on threshold as mine seems to never turn on except for the first half o...

Re: Highway cruising

As one who now regularly drives the i-MiEV at its upper limit keeping with the flow of traffic on local freeways (a necessity in the HOV lane so as not to become a road boulder), I have a few observations - 1. Not much different than driving any small car and being buffeted by crosswinds or big rig ...

Re: Service, Diagnostic Troubleshooting and Repair, MUT 3

From another thread, posting here so it wouldn't get lost, although it's perhaps off-topic although related - iCarsoft OBDII unit which works with the i-MiEV. Still doesn't have the capabilities of a MUT3 unit, but it's a start... Yes, the unit can read error codes and clear them. It has also the &q...

Re: 12 Volt battery is failing, I'm looking for replacement

From another thread - I replaced my original with an Optima yellow top. $$$ouch! I have over a dozen Optima D34 lying around here (left over from my Sparrows), but haven't yet needed to replace my i-MiEV OEM so haven't even tried to see if they fit. Exactly which Optima yellow-top did you install an...

Re: Extra battery connection

Fantastic! Thank you gisli. Where did you end up connecting to the main battery? I got this far in pursuing the i909 unit, available for NA i-MiEVs, but haven't finished reading the fine print. No time now... http://www.icarsoft.com/web/icarsoftus/allproducts/mazdascantools/2012/201212/2012122912256...

Re: Has anyone car dolly towed i-MiEV?

Let's not forget that iwatson perfected i-MiEV dolly towing, having used the i-MiEV as an RV dinghy on his vacations.

Still hasn't posted of photo of exactly how the steering wheel gets strapped down... :roll:
