Re: Should I buy a 2010-2011 i-Miev here in Brazil???

Hey! Yes we do! Three of them. Two between the city of São Paulo and Campinas and one at the university of São Paulo, broken, but I'll try to fix it. PlugShare indeed! Works best for us. Where are you? Portugal? As you probably noticed, my car is one of three i-MiEVs in Brazil... Scary! Best Clement...

Re: Should I buy a 2010-2011 i-Miev here in Brazil???

Yeah, I can clearly listen to it while starting the car and also while parking. Every single time I hit the brakes I remember that vacuum is being produced.. More from outside with the windows open... Watching some YouTube videos, sounds normal, but that is pretty much the only noise the car produce...

Well... It does have a MMCS, a Clarion NX700b unfortunately it is from 2010.... Navigation is utterly slow and just a piece of sh...t, if you compare to Waze.. The UI is appalling and after 5min a fan kicks in ruining the pleasant i-MiEV silence... It does feature a reverse camera input and Bluetoot...

Re: Should I buy a 2010-2011 i-Miev here in Brazil???

So folks, it turns out that it does indeed stop charging 2-3 bars before full... But unplugging and plugging it back again, it charges another 3-4 hours all the way to the end. Weird, right?! Yesterday, before trying this full-charge event, I drove it until and past the turtle mode. I left it in Dri...

Re: Help with scanned error codes

Guys,

Isn’t there an inertial switch within the battery pack, that disables the high voltage circuit in case of an accident? I don’t know if it resets automatically...

Mit engineers mention it during the Euro Encap crashtest video (Youtube).

Re: Should I buy a 2010-2011 i-Miev here in Brazil???

Yes, I definitely need the OBDLink... But won't make here due. I'll try de MUT3 and keep you guys posted! Thank you all! Best It sounds like it's working much better, nearly normal by the distance travelled and the range remaining (RR). You should try it again--charge it up to full and see if it has...

Re: Should I buy a 2010-2011 i-Miev here in Brazil???

Good point! The motor is quite nice! For a VW Bus or something else... I'd love to use the battery for an off-grid solar project. Any good thrird-party BMS? What are the odds of sourcing a compatible controller for the motor (DC-AC)? Is the DC-DC converter VIN locked too? CAN bus managed? I hate thi...

Re: Should I buy a 2010-2011 i-Miev here in Brazil???

So... I had the opportunity to drive it again. This time though it did charge to 100% prior the test drive. Diving like a grandpa, ± 70km/h 100% flat, it did 91km, with 21km and 4 bars left. Is this ok? PS: it lost the first bar after just 3km. Is this ok? best If the "fuel" gauge is not i...
