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.

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.

Re: Fuel tank for diesel heater

Some times to initiate the heater mode you need to move the temperature setting into the red for 10 seconds and then move it back to the green neutral position to get the diesel action in motion. I don't have the pipes insulated and also tied into the tank return installing the one way flow valve . ...

Re: found ... GHW-M002 EV Remote

Here's a link to a video a forum member (DonDakin) made on the remote operations. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rgIM7MIyxLQ This will help if the remote is the one programmed to your car. If it's not, you need to program them to operate together. There is a posting here some where on how to do that.
