Re: Not charging, no "plugged in" light on dashboard

The dealer's best guess was that the BMU needs to be replaced before they can continue the tests. They are not sure what the problem is but their diagnostics stop at that component. The BMU price is from CAD$800 to CAD$1200 depending on models: for mine, it is CAD$1200. I was not ready to spend that...

Re: Not charging, no "plugged in" light on dashboard

(From first post) With Canion, I was able to connect and read the voltages of the battery cells (only 2 out of 16 bars left, high=3.765V, low 3.735V, avg 3.750V, 330V, SoC% 22.0, the main battery is approximately 70000km, the car is 172000km). I will try to drive to the Chademo charger and see if it...

Re: Not charging, no "plugged in" light on dashboard

The dealer has tried to start the car with a charger connected to the J1772 port. He said that the car does not start. This would suggest that the wiring from the J1772 port is correct since it does detect a connected charger. Because of the weak battery, he also connected a booster battery to bring...

Re: Not charging, no "plugged in" light on dashboard

12V Battery voltage with ignition key at:
Off: 12.1 volts
Acc: 11.8 volts
Ready: 14.5 volts

I have yet to confirm if the car starts with a charger connected to the J1772 connector.

Re: Not charging, no "plugged in" light on dashboard

I had a spare cable with a pre-assembled J1772 connector at one end and some pre-assembled connectors at the other end (one of which connects to the on-board charger’s input). I used it to bypass the car’s j1772 connector and the cable that feeds the on-board charger. This cable was from another 201...

Not charging, no "plugged in" light on dashboard

Coming back from an event-free ride, when I plugged in my 2012 Miev in a 220vac charger nothing happened. The dashboard light confirming that it is plugged in did not come on and the car did not charge. I also tried with two 120vac chargers with the same results. (My other Miev charges OK with all t...

Re: The aftermarket cell replacement saga

Cell dimensions: With the LEV50 beeing 111 x 171 x 44 (in mm) how much available space do we have to fit a higher/larger/thicker cell? The thickness (44mm) is limited by the spacing between the sensor holes on the CMU board. Does anyone have the spacing measurement? Height (111mm) will be limited b...
