Re: Not charging, no "plugged in" light on dashboard

What is the condition of the car’s J1772 connector? What about the cables connecting it to the on-board charger?

With a charge cable plugged into the car, will it go READY?

Re: Life with Electric Vehicles - New Channel

Such ambition! :roll:

Guess I'll finally admit to myself that I'm not a video creator. However, I did finally publish something to this channel related to EVs:

Re: Aptera is Back?

Just for fun, I put a deposit down. 400 mile battery with AWD. Their site shows 184 solar cells with the full solar option, which would work out to roughly 900 watts nameplate capacity, based on the solar panels I helped install last year. So, their 700 watt claim checks out. Granted, that covers th...

Re: Aptera is Back?

For me, this would likely be a Bolt replacement. But, to do that, I do have a list of must haves. 1. One pedal driving - The Bolt implements this feature perfectly. Aptera should copy this (and make the default drive mode selectable). 2. Optional connectivity - this is why I didn’t buy a Tesla. I do...

Aptera is Back

Oh, how badly I wanted one of these back in the day. Looks like there’s a possibility the dream will come true.

Re: All dark

Dead 12 volt battery. Plugging the car in won’t fix it. The small battery under the hood needs a charge, and if the car powers up after that, you’ll need a new 12 volt battery.

Re: Front End Rumbling Sound

I can understand why the salesman would be mad. I was when I got a $2,800 offer in the mail. Not faulting you at all, though. What did the previous owners do to that car? Even with 70k on it, a 6-year old pack shouldn’t have lost that much capacity. That’s worse than both of my cars. As to the rumbl...

Re: CHAdeMO or no CHAdeMO question

The easy way to spot if a particular car is a 2012 or not is that all newer models (2014, 2016, 2017) had the door trim around the side windows blacked out. 2012 models had body color window trim, with the exception being the two-tone white with blue. Only this doesn’t apply to Black I-MiEVs, as the...

Re: Add another OBC Failure

Made it home last night after a near full charge on level 2 (I unplugged before it finished). Went home, fully charged on level 1 with no issues. Back at work, it fully charged on level 2 with no issues. Could it be the MiEV remote transceiver having issues and not the charger? A level 1 charge seem...
