Re: read canbus with power off

CanIon is a great app and has a lot of potential. It should reconnect once the charging process starts but it depends on the phone. The dongle receives 12v while the car is shut and the Bluetooth is active, but there are no canbus messages. CanIon tries to read data but the commands it sends doesn't...

Re: P1A15 fault on a Peugeot Ion

Hi Anders, I had the same error on my Citroen. Check my posts in this thread: http://myimiev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=4225&hilit=P1A15&start=10#p39124 The big capacitor is charged for a fraction of a second and cannot be easily charged because it is discharged immediately. There ar...

Re: read canbus with power off

I monitored the charging process wit CanIon without even starting the car. I believe that when it is plugged for charging the ECU starts talking to the BMS and all parameters can be read trough OBD. I believe you should be able to read everything once the charging process starts. What software are y...

Re: No READY. P1A15 error. Condenser charge timeout.

Hi guys, I'm happy to share with you that the problem is fixed. The guy changed almost everything on the schema - the photocoupler, resistors and FET2. The problem appeared when the car gets slightly warmer after a few kilometers of driving. It appears that some of the components were changing their...

Re: No READY. P1A15 error. Condenser charge timeout.

Hi guys, I'm really happy with the car, but the joy was short. The problem appeared again. I drove the car home, charged it. Showed me 111 km estimated range which surprised me. Yesterday I started my daily routine but at the first stop the check engine light lighted again and couldn't go into Ready...

Re: No READY. P1A15 error. Condenser charge timeout.

Hey guys, The problem is fixed and the car is back on the road. I found a guy that has experience with electric vehicles. He managed to trace the faulty circuit. The problem was the chip that measures the voltage of the capacitor - the small one bellow the two small transformers. https://drive.googl...

Re: No READY. P1A15 error. Condenser charge timeout.

Thank you kiev for the detailed information. That was what I needed. I'll try to remove the MCU and check if there are some faulty elements in the circuit. The car cannot start because the ECU can't measure the voltage of the capacitor. I'll try to take some measurements and see if I can find the cu...

Re: No READY. P1A15 error. Condenser charge timeout.

Where does these two wires are connected to the main board? https://i.imgur.com/DJnqXH2.jpg Maybe in the lower right corner of Lic's picture? They should be for measuring the voltage of the capacitor. Could it be that there is some kind of a failure in the measuring circute and it cannot measure cor...

Re: No READY. P1A15 error. Condenser charge timeout.

I'm in the same situation. Citroen C-Zero year 2011 bought second hand on 39k kilometers. Error P1A15 - No READY and cannot be charged. The battery pack is fine. CanIon shows all cells to be at 4 v with .05 variation at 70% charge. The dealer said it could be the A/C Compressor or the Heater. After ...
