Re: Car on charge, now won’t run (asking for someone else)

Got word yesterday that the owner is getting a new battery pack under warranty, so the 8 to 10 year warranty bump is for real.

Re: Global Warming's Terrifying New Math

My panels are surprisingly productive, making around 54 kWh for each of the past two days when I would expect about 40 kWh (when the sun does shine through, it looks like it did during our solar eclipse a few years ago, sunny but dim). The large solar project I was a part of last year (pictures belo...

Re: Global Warming's Terrifying New Math

Scary times on the west coast. Hope everyone is staying safe from the fires.

No wildfires in Pittsburgh, but we can see the smoke from here :shock:. It actually cooled us off about 10-15 degrees and made for some interesting sunsets. Today’s high was 69 F, last Saturday (9-12) was in the mid-80’s.

Re: DC-DC Converter always on

Watch the dome lights when you plug the car in. After a couple seconds, you should see them get slightly brighter.

As for the original question, due to the car’s design, I doubt there would be much energy savings if you can get just the DC-DC powered up without full READY.

Re: Battery current sensor

Yes. US I-MiEVs show miles for RR. We’re stuck with 24-hour only clocks, but it does show miles for everything.

I haven’t heard about the 60 Ah limit. Good to know.

Re: Battery current sensor

I'm considering modifying the main battery current sensor output to allow use of higher capacity cells in the imiEV battery case. Would this be a necessary step? I seem to recall that the BMS will slowly recalculate total battery capacity to allow larger capacity cells and that no modifications wer...

Re: Warning Codes - Car with ! Exclamation Mark

Later when I went to move the Meep back to the driveway, it would not start anymore. When I turn the key to Start, the dashboard lights pop on, and there is an initial "ding" sound, but not the usual ding sound of the "Ready" state. Then the entire dash and every light in the ca...

Re: Car on charge, now won’t run (asking for someone else)

Went to look at the car last night. When the key is turned on, the charge gauge is empty, RR displays ---, and the RBS and MCU Warning Lights are on. Opening up CaniOn, the battery cell voltage and temperature graphs wouldn't even load. My thought here was no communication with the battery pack. SoC...

Porsche Taycan

Anyone see the new Porsche Taycan yet? I happened across one at a charging station yesterday. It appears to have two charge port doors, one on each side. Can it plug in on either side?

Re: Car on charge, now won’t run (asking for someone else)

I know it is. The best I got is that there is a CAN error code, but no clue what it is. Will let you know what I find.
