Eaton Level 2 Charger stopped working after 18 months

Anyone else have problems with their Eaton Level 2 charger? If you reset the power to mine, it goes through the normal blinking lights, but after the blue power light comes on steady like it's ready to charge, it then extinguishes after about 5-10 seconds. I've tried to reset buttons mentioned in th...

Re: LED / HID lights?

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8331/8119872791_6e4d0c825e.jpg Well I ordered the blue dome lights from vleds (http://www.v-leds.com/BLUE-1W-HP-LED-DOME-LIGHT-p8194213.html) and installed them. We are very happy with the cool blue light that they give. All my friends comment on the amazing blue light...

LED / HID lights?

Just out of curiousity, I know a lot of LEAF owners have changed out their various lightbulbs for LEDs or HIDs. Has anyone tried this with the 'i' yet? Curious as to whether you have to change out the sockets as well as the bulbs. Has anyone installed the blue LED interior package? It looks like the...

battery after 3 week vacation

Just for everyone's interest... just got back from a three week vacation, and left the car with 14 bars of charge, which were still all there when I got back. Over 5000 miles on the car so far and still LOVING it!!! Note for the two other 'i' owners in Hilo: the Hilo Airport has two charging station...

Re: sign and pay before delivery?

Well, I certainly wouldn't pay or sign before I did a test drive of my exact car. When mine arrived in Honolulu I flew up from Hilo to take mine on a long test drive, and have my salesman give me a rundown on how everything worked, before I completed the sales agreement and paid for the car. My opin...

Re: Remote control issues

Mine works fine with one quirk. I can set the start time and how long to charge, and when I hit the "transmit" button the car always stops charging and the remote always says "error". i then wait about 10 seconds and hit "transmit" a second time, and then charging resum...

Re: proud new owner of an 'i'

Good news for me. My building permit was signed off by the inspector, and I've applied for the HELCO off peak rates. Even here in Hilo, which probably has the most expensive gas and electric prices in the country, I figure that a 60 mile trip costs me about $13 in my Honda Element, and about $1.80 i...

Re: Better charging controls

Since I also live 1400 feet above Hilo, I like to set the timer so the car doesn't fully charge. One reason is that there is hardly any braking provided by the regen system if the battery is full, and you have to use friction brakes on the way down. Also, I like to be able to recover some of the ene...

Re: Wait for the Gen 2 Mitsubishi i?

personally i'm pleased as punch with the current 'i', after driving mine for a couple weeks. The main thing for me was getting all the federal and Hawaii tax incentives, which may not all be continued. There are two suggestions for Version 2, that I would make however: (1) put the P,R,N,D,ECO,B lett...
