Re: End of the line...?

Well, as things go in the automotive world, it was getting pretty long in the tooth - Pretty much unchanged over the past 8 to 10 years and that's an eternity in the auto realm. Here's hoping they refresh things a bit and come out with an all new model which builds on all the positives that had in t...

Re: DC-DC Converter always on

If you've left lights connected to your battery 'for a few days' then it's deader than dead and you're probably looking at buying a new battery, especially if it was a few years old to begin with. You could try recharging it with a Pulse Repair Technology battery charger and you might get it back up...

Re: DC-DC Converter always on

I feel better that it wasn't just my imagination now that it has been confirmed that charging the car does not always recharge the 12V battery. If your 12 volt battery is in good shape, then it's always charged while the car is recharging. If the battery shows less than about 11 volts, many compute...

Re: DC-DC Converter always on

I was wondering how you determined that the 12V battery is being charged when the main battery is being charged. Because page 1-17 of the owners manual says so - NOTE ● The 12V starter battery will be automatically charged during charging and also while the ready indicator is illuminated. Refer to ...

Re: Brake light on whilst driving - vacuum pump

I would buy a new vacuum pump - The same one as they are installing for the North American recall, and keep your receipt! . Brakes are not something where you want to take the cheap way out . . . . when you have a problem, fix it right. Eventually, Peugeot will recall your car for this problem and y...

Re: What is needed amount of coolant for conditioner?

Most ice cars today have compressors with mechanical shaft seals that leak refrigerant all the time and most mechanics can do a good job at guessing how much refrigerant to add with a little experience. But with our hermetic or semi-hermetic compressors which are completely sealed, weighing in the ...

Re: What is needed amount of coolant for conditioner?

When you add refrigerant to an existing A/C system (or even a brand new one for that matter) you don't do it by measuring the amount - You add refrigerant until the pressures are correct. If you take it to any A/C shop who knows what they're doing, they can A.) Check to see if the refrigerant is low...

Re: Good price for a 2016 i-MiEV?

New cars become used cars when they are 'Put into Service' - Usually this happens when the first owner buys the car and titles it . . . . but, it can also happen if the dealer wants to use the car as a demo. They have to insure it differently because it's going to be driven and they must also put it...

Re: rarely the car doesn't go to READY mode -- what's up?

*Sometimes* if you pause a tiny bit turning the key between ACC and READY, it fails to start. *Usually* if you go from OFF to READY all in one swift turn, it will start most every single time - Very rarely do I get a hiccup doing it this way
