Re: GENTLEMEN. I need help.

Yes, those are the OEM tires. I was thinking that maybe you had Yokohama tires, which are known to take a considerable hit on range. I put the front Yokos that are on Koorz onto Bear for a few days. I easily lost 5+ miles of range with just changing two tires.

Re: Steering Wheel Thumb Control Issues!

If I remember reading right, the steering wheel controls connect to the head unit with only two or three wires. Each button has a different resistance value, and this is how the head unit identifies which button is pressed. It's possible that it could be a simple weak/dirty connection causing your i...

Re: GENTLEMEN. I need help.

Just out of curiosity (although likely irrelevant), what brand tires are on your car? You might be seeing the effects of increased rolling resistance on top of battery degradation.

Re: Trip is over.

Congratulations!! Who says the I-MiEV can't do trips? Glad you made it both there and back with little issue. Certainly a trip for the record book.

Re: Chevy Bolt production version

I spotted an orange one driving around Pittsburgh today while out bike riding. It had out of state plates on it. Couldn't get a picture, though.

Getting closer.

Re: CHADEMO charge failure

There is a quick charger to my north that I use when visiting that jobsite. The one day I went to use it, It only went up to about half power, shut down, and made a loud arc pop. There was a hardware problem with one of the power modules. Others on PlugShare mentioned issues with the unit, but were ...

Re: TPMS on i-MiEVs

He thought 40 PSI was too high on the i-MiEV? With the way the front tires bulge, I feel 40 is too low when I look at them (I know it's not, but still concerns me). My warning light comes on when it gets really cold. I don't think I got a nitrogen fill the last time I had tires put on. The light's n...

Re: Detaching the 12 volt

Haven't done it yet, so can't comment. Funny thing is, I called my local Advance Auto about a battery, and the guy was warning about it being high voltage and dangerous for anyone to change it. He knows someone that died from changing a hybrid battery. :roll: It was almost as bad as the guy that arg...

Re: CHADEMO charge failure

Sorry to hear of your trouble. Is there another DCQC you could try? That should make it pretty clear whether the issue is with the car or not.

Quick chargers are known for having issues. The i-MiEV, not so much.
