Re: my Miev will not charge

Once realising the service plug was still disconnected, we were hoping reconnecting it would allow the car to go ready. Obviously we didn't expect it to function with the service plug disconnected. My concern was subsequent to replacing there would be a non self clearing DTC set, but I'm not sure if...

Re: my Miev will not charge

Is the temporary fuse easy to remove? I'd pull the service connector and wait 10 minutes before doing this. If so, does it now go to ready? In other words, is it the OBC that is stopping ready, or is something else stopping it? We waitied two weeks with the service plug disconnected last time ;) Th...

Re: my Miev will not charge

Just a note, from what I've seen of the service manual, there is no mention of the fuse - the troubleshooting flow chart suggests replacement of the EV-ECU and charger/DC-DC after checking the wiring harnesses and relays. It seems like quite an oversight in the troubleshooting process.

Re: my Miev will not charge

New information on my imiev. Now it won't go into "ready" mode. We reassembled everything after replacing snubber caps in the OBC. Put in temporary fuse. No charging. Decided to sleep on it. This morning after checking things and trying to start the car realised we had disconnected the ser...

Re: my Miev will not charge

I checked that specific resistor and I've had a good look for any other visually apparent problems. I guess I'll recheck everything today. Unfortunately I'm on the east coast, WA is virtually a different country. The trouble codes didn't seem very specific, and the dealer charged $395 for them last ...

Re: my Miev will not charge

Replaced the burnt out capacitors, put in a temporary fuse. Reassembled and put OBCi in car. Atilly have error lights. I assume something hasn't been put together properly as others have reported the error lights gone as soon as everything was back together. The alternative theory was that the error...

Re: my Miev will not charge

MikeDufty, Have you had any progress getting the replacement part shipped in? Having confirmed our charger unit is not actually that old, I'm going to follow this up a bit further with the dealer and Mitsubishi Australia. Failing that I intend to lodge a complaint with NSW Fair Trading. Whilst I alr...

Re: Eliminating Mitsu's Onboard Charger/DC-DC Converter

Great stuff! Good to see it got you back on the road. I can understand the motivation to find a solution - I'm really keen to get our miev going again as I love driving it. I'm a little less keen on paying an exorbitant amount for a replacement charger when the previous one lasted less than 2 years....

Re: Troubleshooting and repair for On-board Charger (OBC), DC-DC Converter

An update on failure #14 - our charger was replaced as a recall in January 2017, so it's been in service less than 2 years. It's dated 2015 manufacture.

Re: my Miev will not charge

So I'm saying that if it's true that it's write-once, that's not necessarily a complete show-stopper. But likely very, very close. To me it's more indicative of a principle of exercising power over your customers. Even in the case the dealer can rewrite it, you are still at their mercy to do so. Ac...
