Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

Chargepoint may have made a babystep in the direction of fixing/avoiding the low charge rate after a MiEV pauses at a shared station. Lately I have noticed that if the car pauses in the first hour or so of charging, it comes back at full 3kW rate. So I am thinking that Chargepoint may have edited th...

Re: Why and how to get and program a third key :idea:

And now, the rest of the story on getting a third key, just in case it is needed in an emergency: This morning I called the (good) locksmith shop to ask how they might be able to help. I pointed out that the cut was good, but the programming procedure had not worked, so I did not know if I had a bad...

Re: Why and how to get and program a third key :idea:

I just tried programming a 3rd key, but the transponder programming procedure (using the two good keys ) described in the owners manual has not worked. The 'immobilizer indicator' does blink after 10 seconds of the 2nd good key, but then the blank key does not program. Has this procedure worked for ...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

To avoid the low charge rate after a pause, I have been avoiding 'shared' Chargepoint stations. But this morning I was charging the MiEV at a 'shared' station (the only car there), and remarkably it went above 1.1kW after a pause. The pause was in the beginning of the 'ending taper', which unfortuna...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

I also requested from Kasey at Chargepoint that now that the situation is at least a little bit understood, that maybe they could empower their phone help techs with some sort of remote "restart" command. The idea being that I could track my own sessions, and call Chargepoint Help when my ...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

I filed an online request to Mitsubishi, pointing out that Chargepoint seems to not respond well to the MiEV pause, and I asked for a possible update so that charging would return to 3kW even after the pause on shared Chargepoint stations. Below is Mitsubishi's response, which (except for the first ...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

Below is Chargepoint's analysis and response to my request that they fix the shared stations so that my MiEV will return to 3kW after the pause, like it does on no-shared stations. Bottom line: The problem is not fixed. Chargepoint's email to me: Hi Kevin, Thank you for your eagerness to help on thi...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

I have just realized that the ChargePoint website indicates a "shared" station in the 'more info' popup, by turning a little wishbone icon (lower right of the popup box) blue. The Parmer station shown just below is shared, where as the Nordstrom station screenshot below that is not shared ...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

Below is today's charge, showing what looks like a normal (not shallow) end taper. So I'm thinking my old MiEV is still OK. I am not sure why that end taper was so shallow the other day. It could be because of the throttling of the "shared" line, even though no other car was plugged in. Or...

Re: ChargePoint Charging Question

I too had noticed that Tuesday's taper was quite shallow and long. I know that because I was sitting by the car in Texas heat, waiting for it to finish, in hopes of seeing exactly what the station display would show. I finally gave up. Yesterday's taper looked more like your graph (as I was monitori...
