If the slow drain is cumulatively greater than the infrequent charging, the battery will discharge, and if left discharged for a while, the capacity will go down. A battery load test would clarify that. If the car is provi...

Re: Help with problems with the 12 v battery

I am not an expert, and I am new to I-Miev as well. My I-Miev has a high drain on the 12V battery. In one week it discharges the battery significantly. I understand that the alarm is partly to be blamed. I lock the car by the switch on the door, and that doesn't set the alarm. I don't lock the car w...

I-Miev airbag warning light on

2012 I-Miev. I took my front seats out for cleaning, and had windows down. I have removed 12V before removing the seats. At the end of the day I had to close the car windows, and the seats were not ready to be put in. I have connected the 12V just to get the windows up. I didn't start or drive the c...

Re: Stock Shocks Replacement Options

I have bought rear shocks for I-Miev on Amayama. It was cheaper than from the dealer.
My I-Miev is 2012. I have emailed Amayama the part number I took from the old shocks,
they replied with a quote, I have paid them, and they have shipped me new shocks.

Re: Storing a Mitsubishi I-Miev outside during the winter

The owner manual says, that to charge the 12V battery, it has to be disconnected from the car. My solution is to disconnect only the negative terminal, and charge the battery in the car. (leaving the positive terminal connected). I just make sure, that my charger, which is grounded doesn’t touch the...

I have noticed, that the main battery doesn't have any noticeable discharge with the car parked. The 12V battery when disconnected, also disc...
