Re: I-miev does not start. Need help

Do you get the errors without the OBDLink device plugged in? I have an LX as well but I've plugged other sorts of devices and an OBD cable odd Amazon and it made the control panel go berserk. I've also gotten errors with the LX and using the official app as it used some strange protocol settings. Bu...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

Which Chargepoint units are these? Is it the older ones or newer dual head ones?

I never see tapering except around 95% which I'd expect.

My car times out for 20 minutes if I start at low SOC% otherwise I see 208V/14A every time. Always get around 2.8-2.9kW or 18km/hour per the app.

Re: OVMS for Mitsubishi i-Miev, Citroen C-Zero and Peugeot iOn

V3.2 is out and it has the new iMIEV code. It seems to work well. I have more problems with non iMIEV specific stuff like wifi disconnect and some crashes. It seems to support everything that's ever been discovered on the CANbus for the car from what I can tell. I don't know if the car sends the psi...

Re: OVMS for Mitsubishi i-Miev, Citroen C-Zero and Peugeot iOn

KommyKT has a custom build of OVMS that supports more features than the "official" version. I've been posting some results here: https://github.com/openvehicles/Open-Vehicle-Monitoring-System-3/issues/174 The link to download it is in there. It seems to work pretty well and fixes any probl...

How's it working for you?

Right now it's pretty good for me. I'm getting some nice trip and battery statistics out of it.

I need a better place to mount the hardware and antenna

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

Toyota is anti-EV because they believe in Hydrogen more, and they don't consider Hydrogen cars to be EVs (however, the only difference is they have a fuel cell instead of a lithium ion battery, though FCVs still have a smaller battery pack). They were the ones to introduce Hydrogen cars back in the...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

Ok thx for the feedback, I guess it is ChargePoint’s fault for providing the best real-time data, and being the only public EVSE option between my office and home, which is the main time I need a top-off - after a heavy day of errands! I’m wondering if the timeouts become longer or more frequent as...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

I have a pretty definite issue with ChargePoint stations, including the newer two-headed units. The infamous charging 'timeout' happens very soon after plugging in and continues for 10-45 minutes. Now that my pack is degraded, the ability to harvest at least 3 kWh during an hour on L2 can make all ...

Is my battery slowly dying?

Had a strange thing happen to me a few days ago. Left my house with a full charge to go to the mall 5km away. Normally I charge to 80% but some plans changed at the last minute. It's cold and I was running the heater so I arrived with about 82%. When I came back to the car about half an hour later w...
