Re: Hi everyone....have two 2012 I-Mievs.....need help....

I drove it some more. Starts right back up. I just started it and shut it down about 50 times in a row. kiev, when it failed on me yesterday, I heard all of the relay clicking and I believe contactors also, then it failed, wouldn't go to ready, and set the i light. Maybe it's failing in the MCU? Tha...

Re: Hi everyone....have two 2012 I-Mievs.....need help....

Darn....it happened again. My wife drove over to my daughters. Wouldn't start, i light on. I went over, cleared code, started up and drove home. At home, 12V aux checked at 12.77.....all good. Raspberry usually reads 12.82. I started it right back up. It's intermittent. I decided to start and shut o...

Re: Hi everyone....have two 2012 I-Mievs.....need help....

Hi kiev, It works. Took a trip. Started right back up. I'm charging it up now. Noticed after charging the main battery for about a half hour, 12V jumped to 13.08. It works and drives great. How did you know from the start....there's nothing wrong with the car and that it was likely the 12V battery? ...

Re: Hi everyone....have two 2012 I-Mievs.....need help....

I have maybe a dumb question. Why would they make a car that if the 12V battery gets discharged, it sets a code and the car cannot be started again without removing the code? In other words, what good would jumping the car do when it isn't going to start anyway? Or what good would charging the 12V o...

Re: Hi everyone....have two 2012 I-Mievs.....need help....

Re: Hi everyone....have two 2012 I-Mievs.....need help....

Thanks kiev. First....since it starts now....I'll put the meter on the 12V and go to ready....and see what it reads. I already did this to raspberry, so I can compare the readings. I'll do it tomorrow. Can't take it anymore today. If that is no luck....I'll put the raspberry battery in silver and go...

Re: Hi everyone....have two 2012 I-Mievs.....need help....

Well, Got stuck at the store. Hooked up i909 and cleared the code. Started up.....drove home. Now at home, it starts right back up.

:lol:

I don't know what else to do except switch 12V batteries.....and see what happens.

Thanks,
Dale

Re: Hi everyone....have two 2012 I-Mievs.....need help....

I cleared the SRS codes.

Drove around.

There's nothing wrong with the car!

So far. So good.

Going to make a longer trip now like my wife did when all of this started.

Taking my i909 with me.

:lol:

Thanks.
