Re: 4 Years & 100k miles/160k km Review & Range Test

Bluey is still on the original 12v & traction batteries. Both are still working well. I would guestimate that the I am getting close to a 10% range drop judging by the regular driving routes I've taken over the years. Up here in Quebec Canada, we run the heater on our cars for a good 5-6 months ...

Re: Gear selector sensor/switch ??

Here's an older post on this same situation .

Some were lucky and got away with a cleaning and lubrication of the shifter system.

Good luck with the fix.

Re: would anybody be interested in parts ? like the HV battery?

Sorry to hear of your bad luck.

If you're parting it out , I would be interested in some parts.
Shipping costs could be an issue - I'm in Canada.
I'll send you a personal message.

Re: i-MiEV Cuts Out After Hitting Bump

Looking backward to my ICE driving days .
Had a thought .....
I remember a similar situation where the owner had a huge amount of keys attached to the cars ignition switch.
Over time & many miles the rattling keys damaged the ignition switch and the car car would periodically cut out.

Re: Unexpected Turtle

A few questions... What kind of mileage does he have?. Does this happen regularly or randomly? Has he tried other drive modes ( E , B ) when this happens. Did the car react as if it was in turtle mode ( speed limitations etc) when this happened? I agree a CaniOn reading would be an eye opener in thi...

Re: one month winter iMiev non-use in Canada - what to do?

For 1 Canadian winter month.....
I would try and get a neighbour to use it 1 day a week .
Get him to charge it up the night before he drives it and would be nice if the charge in the battery is around 50 % or so when he's done.
